Winter Fun

My nephew Sekai is visiting us for 10 days. For those of you who are fans of the tv show "Heroes", he's the kid who plays Young Hiro. He's from Santa Monica so he usually doesn't get to see snow. So we took him sledding at this hill next to the local dump. It's one of those places I had never imagined would be a good place for sledding until one day I saw some people there. It's nice because you don't have to worry about bumping into trees, and it's such a nice, big open area.

On your mark, get set, go!

Oh no! Sekai fell off!

And then we went home to make some gingerbread houses. Well, technically, they're graham cracker houses, but who's checking?

Abby's 2nd grade class made these in class and I think they're a great x-mas project. They used empty lunch milkboxes as support, covered with frosting or meringe "snow" and candy for decoration.

Abby's looks fancy since she just added to the one she had already made in class.
They'll get to eat it on x-mas for a nice sugar fix. ^_^
