Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, but I just haven't been that ambitious. Plus, our computer crashed upstairs, to I've had to deal with my laptop downstairs, and it runs on Vista. Not so fun for me. I do have other things to post, though, like our Christmas pageant fun, and being snowed in (not really, but I'm REALLY tired of shoveling!) I can't post pictures from our 2nd Annual Chick Run, because our friends with the chickens had them slaughtered before we could do it. Dangit! Maybe next year she'll wait for us to have our chicken run.....love ya Jane!
Anywho, on Christmas day, we took the boys out to the sand dunes and went sledding/tubing. It was a lot of fun. Of course, I first had to be a dork, and put the gator (that goes around the neck) on my head, and have Doane take a picture. I also took a picture of Dean running up to the top of the hill.
Here are some shots of the boys on the sled and the tube.
Me, being the genius that I am, decided to take the sled down face first, and this is the product of that poorly-thought-out idea. Can you see the grit on my face from my run, plus my plow into a snow drift at the end? It was great! But I wanted to do it again, you betcha! The second shot shows how covered my shirt got from that run.
Following are pictures of us enjoying our ride on the innertube, being pulled behind Doane's truck, although the first shot is Doane getting it set up.
After our fun in the cold snow, we all piled back into the truck. But we couldn't pass up a chance for another photo op!
Another Christmas spent far away from our family, but we made the best of it! On a sad note, as Dean and I were riding on the innertube, Doane drove over a rock, and popped the innertube. And we're not just talking a small hole that you can put a patch on it, and it's all good. This hole was huge! Dangit, dangit, dangit!
