Skating, skating and more skating

Let the festivities begin!  1 week til fake Christmas, 2 weeks til real Christmas!  I have a lot of baking to do this week in preparation, but we got things started off with these. Dylan picked them out.  They taste just like Spritz!  But without the tedious cookie gun thingy!

Look what arrived in the mail yesterday!  Avery now has skates courtesy of cousin Easton.

She needed Eric’s help at first walking around.

But she quickly got the hang of it and started cruisin’ around the room on her own.

Then came the real test – how would it go on the actual ice?

About like I thought it would.  She didn’t want any help, but it proved to be “too hard for me!” – one of her favorite sayings.  She was out there for about 3 minutes before she went down like a sack of potatoes and demanded to be brought into the house.  Here’s the video (sack of potatoes moment not featured):

It is pretty warm out today, so we decided to venture out to the lake rink for some skating and other shenanigans.

Here are the “other shenanigans.”  Eric was pulling Avery on the sled and then decided I should get in too.

Avery rode on my lap and Dylan trailed behind us.

He’s amused here b/c of my reaction – one that was not of glee.

He’s still laughing because I have just expressed my need to vomit.

And despite the fact that Avery and I were DONE – we were off again.

Avery and I were sooooo outta there.  Barf city.  She got off and made a beeline for the house. I snapped one last picture – of Dylan on the puke inducing sled.  He seemed to be enjoying it tho.  I’d post videos of this, but then you’d want to puke too, so I won’t.
