sleds away!

Wednesday, December 30


First, let us begin with these very important pictures of this chub master in her enhanced state, wearing what Everett likes to call, her blueberry suit. Very reminiscent of A Christmas Story, which is exactly how we like to keep things around here. 

Isla's emotional journey into the day, began first with curiosity, then acceptance, and then full on master of both suit and snow.

 And that was that.

The day was very pretty and very cold and filled to the brim with hot chocolate and family members who took work off to go sledding on the Monday after Christmas, because it was the right thing to do.

 Tyson took Isla on her maiden voyage down the hill.

 And of course they had a mild wipe.

 But then on the second try, they loaded up and sailed smooth as glass straight to the bottom.

 And that is the exact moment when Isla realized that sledding is totally. awesome.

Here we have Isla's less than enthused brother, who is delightfully opposite of her in every way. Everett spent the first portion of the afternoon, contentedly watching the rest of us sled from inside the car. And then after much convincing, much layering, and a few stuffings of those hot hands things in various places, he came out ... so that he could stand next to the fire.

 He's told me that he's "very disappointed" in what snow has to offer.

 So while he warmed himself, we took our mini snow ball down a few more times. 

 I mean it was 20 degrees for pete's sakes, and Isla was all over it like, whatever dude.
Happy little soul.

Gripping the hot hands, sledding in style; a portrait of Everett slowly becoming less disappointed haha

 After a little nudging and encouragement from his cousins, Everett decided to take the plunge. We trudged up 1/4 of the hill and thoroughly enjoyed the ride down. 

 He said that he still doesn't want to go sledding ever again though.

 Tyson thought it would be wildly fun for the two of us to take a turn together and share a tube down the hill. So we did. This is a screen shot from the video that was taken and it does not do the crash justice. Booking my chiropractic appointment tomorrow.

It's really fun living here. Taking the day and caravaning out to the back roads to find the perfect hill. The fire, the piles of snow, the thermoses full of hot chocolate, the family, the sledding, and then after it's all done, peeling off your soggy layers, pressing your hands against the vents in the car and unthawing.

A giant thank you to Vaseline intensive care for saving our buns this time of year. Especially mine. Having small children requires that my gloves are off during a majority of our winter activities, buttoning this, or re-zipping that, and they can get pretty wind-whipped and chapped by the end of the day. My hands soak this stuff up and then actually stay hydrated.
  
The classics always seem to be the best in the biz, don't they?

you do not need to waste it. therefore if this can be the case, you must feed the baby the breast milk and check if she wants additional milk see more information.
