Winter Solstice already! We had our annual party last night to celebrate and to get us through the longest night of the year. We began our evening with some sledding. As we all slowly gathered at one of our favorite parks. The sledding was bumpy and most of the adults will have bruised bums today, the kids did not seem to mind. We had a great idea of lighting our hike home with glow sticks but soon found out they don't glow in our MN cold! Oops, so much for that idea. We got home and quickly warmed ourselves with steamy beverages and fortified ourselves with tasty treats. After relaxing and eating to our tummys' content we headed to the living room for a beautiful solstice story. The story is about the sun dying and then returning on the solstice to bring us the light once again. We ended the story by placing our Sun/Star on the top of the tree so the sun will hopefully return to us again. It was a lovely evening with even lovelier friends. Welcome back sun!!!!

Deb, checking on Doca. The little guy was happy as a little snowman all sausaged up in his warm clothes!

Up the hill once more!
