Anyway, here are some pics. Because I have nothing else to post. Unless you guys would like to hear about my 19 hours straight of sleep...or the color of the phlegm I hacked up constantly the last 3 days...or the chunk vs. fluid ratio of my stomach contents as they came up to say hi to me the second time around.
Or we can just go on with the pictures...
This year's snowman! Yes, I did manage to bundle myself up, haul my rear outside and help the parents and the littlest bro-han make a snowman. Which, now that I think about it, was the last day I was well so the 6 hours outside probably got me sick. No, it wasn't as big as it was last year but to our defense we were lacking an engineering degree and sheer tenacity without the premier bro-han around. Plus, none of us are over 5'5 and wouldn't have been able to make a 7ft snowman anyway.
Packing snow for the base. And yes, I know it looks like my mother is hard at work with the snow shovel, but don't let her fool you. She was really just throwing snow around so she can make herself a chair to sit on.
The littlest bro-han rolling and rolling and rolling and rolling that damn ball around.
My dad "helping" me by shovelling up snow and flinging it in my general direction. Without checking to see if my mouth was open. *blech*
The snowman WAS smiling...untill part of his mouth broke off. Now he looks unsure. Probably because he's naked in a scarf and hat.
Mom and I dressing the snowman. And by "dressing" I mean shoving stone buttons into his skin and stapling a belt to his mid section.
Finished product (see the hair under the hat?? yeah, we're just so damn creative like that)...and yes, I really am that cheek-pinchingly cute! ;)
My mom (just turned 50...she won't mind that I told you) who is also cheek-pinchingly cute. I had to get it from someone right?
With the bro-han...after he finished chucking snowballs at the kids over the fence next door.
And the next day, our hard work covered up by another 6 inches of snow :(
Lastly, I want to thank all of you for the gifts and cards and emails and happy thoughts you sent my way! I hope you guys had a great Christmas!
