We celebrated at Willow's Lodge - where we had our reception. It was PERFECT. A wonderfully warm and incredibly stormy day. We had a romantic dinner at the Barking Frog. We ate the top of our wedding cake when we returned to the room. We watched I Love You, Man and laughed and hung out.
And, of course, the whole family enjoyed the night...

I wasn't in the right state of mind on this particular night. In the past, I have graciously thanked them for their time and told them that I wasn't interested. But, I didn't have much fight in me, so I let them do their thing...promising me that a representative would be dropping of a $100 gas card the next night (a ploy to get me to let one of their salespeople into my home). No, this is absolutely not what made me receptive to their sales techniques...again, not in an assertive mood. This guy was basically convinced that he was doing me a favor. If you've had a window salesperson in your home, you know that this is not the case. They sit at your dining room table for, oh, say two hours and fill those two hours with the most asinine claims and demonstrations.
The icing on the cake was the fact that they asked to use MY cell phone to call the home office...so that home office knew that they weren't just making these appointments up. How weird is that??? I was so taken aback that I just handed over the phone without much hesitation...at that point, I just wanted them off my porch!
So, needless to say, Home Depot is my first stop after work today and I'll be posting some "NO SOLICITING" signs at several places in and around the entrance to my home...and definitely a couple in my single-pane, aluminum clad, wildly inefficient windows!!!!!

Some size perspective...that's my almost 6 year old neice hugging the middle section of the snowman...
And that's my first born standing next to it...
Le Artistes...notice the smaller one has TWO missing teeth. Just yanked 'em out like it ain't no thang. Are they supposed to lose two teeth a week apart???
The ever necessary snow fort - another Unkie idea.
Aubbie's turn taking pictures of Unkie...he's such an enthusiastic subject.
This is about the world's most amazing sledding hill. Notice the lack of sledders. What's with this generation of whimpy, lazy, disgraceful little bastards? The reason I'm not sledding - MY DAMN SLEDS WERE AT MY PARENT'S "IMPOSSIBLE TO GET TO WHEN IT SNOWS" HOUSE.
