Megan struggled with it last year. While she still can not say every single word, she learned most of it this year.

Audrey taught me how to do embroidery.Â I made a picture of a princess. I did all of it but one shoe and part of the hair.

After one trip down, Mark completely lost control.Â He was fine, even giggling over the ride.Â But after, he stood still a few seconds, giving me a chance to take one of my favorite pictures of the day.
Mark posted another favorite here.
It snowed last night and we decided to go to the park to go sledding for a little while.Â We knew it was very cold so we dressed warm and planned to stay for a short while.Â Judging by the laughter and all the different ways the kids went down the hills, I think it was the best morning of sledding we have had in a long time.
