We went to the annual Haight Family Sledding Party and had a blast. Uncle Gord always organizes it, thanks Gord!!:)
Jax, specifically, had a HUGE blast. He didn't stop sledding the instant we got there till we finally left 2 hours later. And he was tired from all that hill walking. But as I said, he LOVED it. Up and down, up and down. It was really fun to watch his fun and enthusiasm and just his energy...!
Rod, on the other hand. Stood like this at the top of the hill the ENTIRE time, unless, on 2 different occasions, we forced his body down the hill in a sled. He was just NOT interested. Despite my efforts he WAS interested in sucking the water out of the snow puddles on the pavement. Which I'm pretty sure was the cause of his severe diarrhea for the next 4 days. Gross Rod, gross.
Justin, Steve and Todd kept trying to do this game where they race down the hill and the first to the bottom actually ON his sled wins. You are supposed to knock the other people off their sleds on the way down to ensure your victory. It always just ended up like 1 big struggling man hug sledding down. I don't think anyone fell off ever, it was pretty funny to watch though...all the men, one big mass hug sledding down the hill...it was really impressive...:)
This is Rod's food still healing at the beginning of January.
Here are all the DARLING little cousins on my side all watching a Tinkerbell movie. In case you can't tell, my manly boys are memorized...They have never seen a Tinkerbell movie before, it was very exciting, and fulfilled their expectations, I'm sure...:)
Jax steals my phone all the time and takes pictures. I'm indulging myself and posting the last round he took. He is getting better and better at funny faces. If you have time you should study them each individually. It's really hilarious. Especially when you consider they were all taken withing a 4 minute period of time. :)
We had a Happy Birthday party for my AMAZING grandparents. I love them sooo much!!
I took these pictures of rod's foot yesterday. Still healing... Debbie kindly brought over an aloe-Vera plant to try and reduce scaring, hopefully it helps!!
Some other random pictures...LOVE my boys!!
The kids play with this train waaay more then I thought they would, it's turned out to be a good toy. That's always nice. :)
And these boys LOVE to COLOR!! They will color and color and color.
