despite not having packed apparel for such an excursion, shari donned our extra boots and coat and the new hat i knitted up in a jiffy for her and headed outside to take pictures. when ander saw all this preparation, he changed his mind about remaining in, so that meant i had to get out of my pajamas and brave the cold, too.
i'm sure there are countless quotes about the silence of snowfall. we did not experience this - rather, quite the opposite. especially when i got on the sledding hill again.
only a few of the pictures on this post were taken by me. the really nice ones were courtesy of shari and her camera and her mad skillz as a photographer. shari is one of those friends who makes sure that i get into some of the pictures and she has a special knack for capturing me just as i am. when i look back on those pictures, i feel beautiful.

|yes, in fact, these are new glasses. i opted for a fun new color this year.|
|having much more fun since i secured snowpants and proper gloves for her|
|ander could make it down the slope and back up again twice in the same time it took me to slide down once. he's getting really good at this.|
|realizing i am probably going to crash into something. which i did. nothing new, though, for shari. she's seen how i ski.|
