Sledding with a cowboy
I will post a picture of the damage later when it is off my camera but I wanted to blog about this while i am still sort of laughing. Jake took Tai sledding down the sledding hill by my house while I stayed back to keep Teya asleep and get presents wrapped. I could see them out the front window and i wanted to see how much fun they were having. They climbed to the very top and walked around a while and then got set to go down the hill. I stopped my present wrapping to take it all in and see them go down for the first (and last) time. At first I couldn't believe how fast they were going and then Jake's hat flew off and then it all came crashing down. Halfway down the hill, they hit a weed patch and flipped over and rolled. I couldn't tell if Tai was bawling or not from where I was but I sort of figured that she was, especially when i didn't see them go back up the hill for run #2. Next I know Jake comes carrying Tai into the house with her crying red blotchy face (those who know Tai, know what I am talking about) mixed with little red bumps on her cheeks. Jake said that the weed patch they hit was full of stickers and Tai's face got the brunt of it. I felt so bad, but I laughed undercover while I was picking a sticker out of my baby's face. She cried for a while and I snapped a couple shots of her cheeks for memory's sake-then she wanted to get in the bathtub. The funniest thing though was Teya woke up and of course wanted to get in the tub to, and as soon as she got in with Tai- Tai said to Teya, "Do you want to go sledding and get stickers in your face?"
