Way behind on posting!

I got way behind on posting over the holidays. I've posted stuff and dated it as if I had posted it on time (sneaky, I know). So there's more stuff here than at first appears!

MLK holiday

The kids had the long weekend because of the MLK holiday. We spent Monday sledding on the dry farms above Grandma's house. Caleb brought his snowmobile to drag everyone up to the top of the hill. It was great fun but COLD.

The kids waiting for a ride up the hill. You can see that we don't have a lot of snow yet. The weeds are still poking through in a lot of places.

It's great to have a snowmobile to take us to the top!

Back to "normal"

Well the holidays are over, the company has gone home and so life is settling back to normal.

Maybe normal feels more like catatonic!

(Betsy insists that this was comfortable. . . I've heard that Bairds can sleep anywhere and now I believe!)

We've all been struggling with sickness (probably the RSV that Michael had) and so it's made for a slow start.

Betsy ended up with a sinus infection and A.J. with an ear infection.

The weather has been pretty cold and foggy. It makes you want to stay indoors but it is very beautiful. . . We certainly live in a winter wonderland!
