New Year's Bocce

Last night my husband and I joined family and friends to welcome in the new year. We did many of the normal festivities that take place on New Year's Eve, such as eating, playing games, laughing, eating, talking, tickling, eating, lounging, and did I mention eating?? Anywho, one of the more unusual things that we did to welcome in the new year was play snow bocce ball. What is snow bocce ball, you ask?'s playing bocce ball in the snow. And it's even more fun when it's sub-zero temperature outside. And you don't have a scarf or warm winter boats. Or a second layer. Br. 'Nuff said. Anywho, here's some pics of our snow bocce ball! Enjoy!

Pre-Bocce Ball Playing

Elaine gets ready for her first throw!

Oops....we lost a ball in the snow mountain! I guess that's
the problem with playing bocce ball in the snow...when it's dark... :-D

The New Year's Eve Bocce Ball Players!
(I have absolutely no idea what Joe and Eric are doing!)

Some serious bocce ball pondering...who's the closest to the green ball?
and which ball IS the green ball?? :)

What a lucky girl! I knew this but it didn't click. You married Joe (amazing guy) Who's cousins with Eric and Kevin (more amazing guys) who married and is marrying elain and naomi. I so envy you! 6 really cool people I know all in one family now. So not fair! Happy late birthday. Hope you're continuing to do well.
