Oh, hi there.

Yep.  I'm back.
Sorry about that whole "I missed the entirety of 2013" thing.  Heh.

I'll see what I can do later about posting some photos from that year. That entire year.

Soooo.  Anyway.  Diving back in where we are, because that's the only way this thing is going to work.

It's been a snowy, snowy winter.  Lucky for us, we don't mind the snow so much (said the woman who does not operate a snowblower - ahem).  There's skiing and tubing and hot chocolate and a warm house, so what's to complain about? 

And double lucky for us, we live a mere seven minutes away from Black Mountain of Maine, which is about the friendliest family ski mountain you could hope for.  Unbelievably cheap downhill skiing ($15 lift tickets!) and world-class Nordic ski trails.  And tubing!  Scary/fun tubing, which was all free this past Thursday, so I packed some sandwiches for dinner and we headed up to the mountain.

Glow necklaces! So fun!

Annie and Betty playing in the tubes. 
They were really too little to go down the mountain.
  And, of course, the camera battery died, so this is all we have of that night (plus a few videos I can't figure out how to upload to the blog). But so fun!  It seemed like half the town was there and we tubed until it was just tooooo cold and then one by one (Annie and I were first) we trickled into the lodge to eat our sandwiches and apples and carrots and the free lollipops that Franklin Savings Bank was passing out.

Man, we love living so close to the mountain!
