One of the family Christmas parties that we try to attend every year usually includes some sledding. It has been this way since I was quite little. The sledding hill we choose has changed over the years but not the sledding. The toboggan in these pictures hasn't missed a sledding party (that I can remember), either. This year's sledding had very cold temps but the sun was nice and bright.
Even my parents get in on the sledding action.
Hey, can anyone tell me why there were such LONG shadows? I know the sun isn't as high in the sky as in summer, but these were all taken within a half an hour of NOON. The long shadows make it look like late afternoon or early morning. Any ideas?
Notice the icy cloud of breath--it was THAT cold! Yet thanks to the sun and lots of action, it actually felt warmer than last year (20 degrees, but icy 40 mph winds).
I also managed to get a few runs in while taking LOTS of pictures.
After sledding, we gather for food, games, and gifts.
I had to include these last two pictures. Apparently, eating MULTIPLE suckers at a time is all the rage :)!
