This post doesn't really have anything to do with the fact that it is ten or eleven degrees below zero, but is more a quick update since my last one was just recipes and in the words of my brother who happens to be standing over me examining my every word, "extremely boring." Funny since just ten minutes ago he was watching a cooking video with my sister? I had pics I had wanted to do for a while, but up until this point I have been too busy to waste more time on the Web. :)
I guess the reason that I have had a little more free time this week is because two days after I wrote the last post I woke up with acute appendicitis, which, in a few quick words, ended up with an ER visit later in the day, my first surgery, and my first night in a hospital. It wasn't the funnest experience in the world, but it was interesting, and my mama's praying, a nice surgeon, and a lot of Ibuprofen got me back to normal pretty fast. And of course the Lord's mercy was the real healing factor, for which I am very grateful.:)
Anyway, here are some pics of the kids enjoying the snow. Winter lighting seems really good for photo shoots (though I am still an amateur in the area of photography) I mixed some other ones in too. Everyone has been really enjoying the snow.:)
Here we were racing. The outcome~ two of the grand athletes crashed into a snowbank. The other two crashed into each other.
Zach is always the "cruiser" when it comes to skating.
Our big brother ready to send the little kids cruising down the hill between the barn and the house. Pardon the pink gloves that aren't actually his.
You know it's really cold when the shadows are blue like this.
This one is blurry since I took it from the window and a long distance, but I thought my dog looked so cute here with her rustic toy. (She follows family traditions~ my little brothers' favorite toys are also sticks. A.k.a. toy guns)
I think that's all for tonight! Good night, everybody, and stay warm.:)
