Snow Play

We walked up to the park today for some sledding and snow-creaturing.

Ben about to go down the hill.

Alex looking happy he's too smart to go down a hill on a fast sled.

Ben at the bottom of the hill, pulling the sled back up.

Alex preferred to go down sans sled. More control.

The slide was next, but I made them pose first.

Well, I couldn't find anything for the mouth. Everything was under snow, people.

As you can probably tell, this is a hippo with an oxpecker on its back. The oxpecker is eating a parasite (represented by the pine branch) off of the hippo.

Giant Moa. Well, a baby one. I do plan on keeping my day job.

Baltimore Christmas

Following Leupen Christmas in Cincinnati, there was Yoder Christmas in Baltimore. Most of these pics were taken by Daryl's dad John (explaining the occasional appearance of Sarah in them).

Making Christmas cookies


Finger puppets

Drawing with Grandpa and Grandma

Wearing blankies is very exciting.

Jumping on the bed is even more exciting!

This is what Eric did nearly the entire visit.

Except when good books, such as those about beetles, were being read.

Reading about frogs and toads.

Grandparents and grandchildren

Bird Bingo!
