walk in the snow

On the last day of our winter holiday we took Fig and Merriweather for one last walk together. Lucky Fig even got to be off her leash. she liked to follow Merriweather like a duckling and Merriweather liked to run as fast as she could the whole way.
Early the next morning we flew back to Savannah. I was pretty sad to leave, but now for 2013 to start!

new year

Happy new year!
Here are a few more pictures from our trip......

a little bit of sledding at one of the family Christmas parties. None of us (except the kids) had been sledding in years, and it was the most fun ever. Despite a crash involving me and Mike squishing together onto one of those little saucer sleds that go way too fast..

followed by a little bit of not so successful cross country skiing. The last time i did this was in middle school gym class, and i was excited to go again.  We didn't end up lasting very long, being tired from sledding and all, but i'd love to go again next year.

And last, here is our new year's eve! we stayed in and ate chinese food and fell asleep right after the new year!
