Winter Wonderland

Hello friends, and welcome to 2011. Did you have a nice New Year? I did. We went to a friend's house and played games all night. It was laid back and fun. Just what I was hoping for.
It has been raining for two days straight here, which has finally melted all the snow. Thank goodness. The snow was very pretty, but its such a mess. Of course, the rain didn't really help the mess out too much. Just got rid of the ice and snow.

We went sledding last week. The Hubby and I called up all the little cousins and nieces (half of which were sick and couldn't come). Three of them showed up to play and we had a blast. The snow was so fluffy. It made great trails and would pack down quick, making it really fast.

This is the view from the bottom of the trail. It was a great ride, but one heck of a hike back up the hill. Even the kids were worn out after walking so much. Those horizontal trails are from the cows, which kept crossing in the middle of our tracks. Haha.

I thought I would share a pic of me and the Hub from Christmas at my Nanny Ruby's. I know I don't post a lot of personal pics, but sometimes its just nice to see the persons you are reading about.

Thank you all for sticking with me through 2010. I know that I am a random blogger and that I fall out of the routine quite often. I appreciate every single comment and visit to this blog. I really do. You guys are great. I never would have thought that I would make such good friends through something like this. But I have, and I am grateful. ~

The giveaway is officially closed. Trina, Dawn, Amber and Jen....... please e-mail me your addresses. You have some goodies on their way.

A laidback New Year's Eve is the best. I'm not one for getting dressed up and wrestling people for a taxi when it's time to come home.

Sledding is so much fun! That trail looks equal parts fun and terror. I just love the cow tracks :)

And gorgeous, gorgeous photo of you and the husband. It's so nice to put faces to names. I hope you both had a lovely Christmas. xx
