It’s a lovely thing to be invited to a party. Let alone a sledding party hosted by the D. Family; They know how to throw a proper party. And did I mention that they have a huge hill? So naturally we accepted. We had to trek two sleds, a change of clothes, and ourselves up our hill to where our van was parked, and then much shouting and giving of orders took place, as we tried to get everything loaded. And then it had snowed so much that some of us had to climb out again and kick snow away from the tires. But we got left, and we had a lovely, lovely time. Except Katya, who pretty much hated everything but the food. But even she had her pleasant moments; for example, she learned to throw snowballs, albeit weakly. Really, we had a lot of fun, and it was lovely to get out of the house and be with friends. So enjoy, and click on the pictures to make them larger.
