We headed out for the New Year's Weekend to Littleton to visit Ben's parents. We had a, thankfully, uneventful drive on Friday evening - probably the clearest traveling we've ever had there in the wintertime. Nice for us, bad for ski resorts.
Saturday morning we decided to hit some sledding slops. It hadn't snowed in over a week there, but there was still white stuff hanging around. Unfortunately that made it super hard and icy. I couldn't believe my kids could climb up the hill without sliding back down - but they did. The kids had a grand old time - at first, more of that to come. But I was pretty miserable, as was Jim (Ben's dad). I don't know about Ben. It was just sooooooooo windy. Incredible. And the wind made it very Brrrrrrrrrrrr.
We didn't get any pictures of Miles. But he loved it, too. He was bummed when we had to go. And we had to go because Jonas and Emmy got in to a sledding accident - they were going down together and then got bumped out, rolled over each other, hit their faces together, on the icy snow, etc. Emmy had quite the nose-bleed - blood everywhere. I'm sure she was in pain, but probably also seeing that much blood made her even more upset. Poor gal.
On Sunday evening we had Great-Grandma Dee over for dinner. After dinner Lucy put on quite the show for us all. I have no idea what had gotten in to her! Spiked cottage cheese perhaps? She was so silly.
And here's a video of goofy Lucy:
