I just had the most incredible “welcome to winter” experience – careening down the side of a snow covered hill atop a 2 cm piece of plastic.  Sledding.  In the dark.  In 5 degree weather.  (Thank you Kipp and Ane).

It was amazing.  The crunch of snow under my boots as we trudged up the hill over and over.  My breath looking like smoke before me.  Finger tips curling up and slowly dying in my idiotic striped mittens.  I’ll say it again, it was amazing.

I am so happy winter is finally here.  There is a unique beauty to it that I am ready to experience.  Plus all the fun new activities like sledding, cross country skiing and snow ball fights.  I have big plans for our winter.  Intense and snowy plans.  So far, so good.
