Ten shots to kick of 2010

We decided to kick of the New Year with some sledding! What is more fun than bruising your entire body, freezing your toes off and wetting yourself all at once? I say absolutely NOTHING! Fortunately, it was a nice day and hadn't snowed for many days prior so we didn't get too cold or wet! Unfortunately, it hadn't snowed for many days and everyone and their dog had previously used this hill to sled and so it was a bumpy ice sheet! (It still pains me to sit;)

Above is Alex and he was going to show us how to do this with great style and ease.

Here is he re-enacting his wreck. Luckily he skidded to a halt half in his sled! It sure made dragging his injured carcass behind the truck and back home much easier;) OH seriously! Do you think I would really do that? hehehe

Ty giving his "before the hill" shot above. He wasn't sure what to think of sledding and has always been such a whiner in the past.

He absolutely loved it! Above he hit a jump and left his sled but managed to keep a hold on it the whole time. We had to bribe the boy to get him to leave that place! We were all tired and injured and he was just having the time of his life!!

Steve got a little off course and we were sure glad he had his legs together! Swing sets can be really dangerous EVEN when you are not on them!

No I didn't do my hair for the event....why do you ask? And YES my New Year's resolution is to lose weight...don't ask! (I have dropped 9.5 so far and only have a million more to go;)

The three amigos didn't think it was suicidal enough to go alone. Why not have other bodies to thrash against?? I don't think it was many more trips after this that Steve and Alex went down together, went off a snow jump and both hurt their backs....game over!

Steve was bound and determined to try it in every position and fortunately he didn't break a bone!
He did crash and burn too many times to count though!

YES I did go down and MANY times! I just don't allow those pictures to be shown here.....or anywhere! That's the luxury of it being my blog! Hope you all kicked off the new year in great style!

I would have so much fun sledding! If only I hadn't busted both ovaries the other day.

Next, I would like you all to do a LUGE. I don't even know what that would require. But you have snow, so figure it out. Thank you.
