Happy New Year Ski

My faithful appendage Astrid, Skagit and I went out for a ski on New Year's Day at Big Sky was softly snowing out and it was soooo quiet I could hear my own heartbeat, the sliding of my skiis and the rythmic planting of my poles in the fresh snow, Astrid's soft breathing and the muted sounds of Skagit leaping wildly in neck deep snow, here, there and everywhere.

Astrid in my trusty mirror.
Jeff rang in the New Year by catching some fish with our friends Bill and Kristin on the lake.
Hat head and some rosy cheeks near the fireplace after some fresh air!
We hope you rang in the New Year some special way this year.

I should have made one for everyone in the family! I enjoyed making the butterfly mobiles this Christmas. I love working with paper to make something beautiful.
