Merry Christmas to Me!

Okay! So, except for Ben bonking his noggin in a freak snowboarding accident (or, not freak - he was actually standing on a sled) and us going to the emergency room, we had a pretty great week at my dad's house in Iowa. Here are some highlights taken with MY NEW CAMERA that Ben got me for Xmas plus a little post-concussion video that I also took with MY NEW CAMERA. (Note: Ben is recovering nicely and the ER, at least in Mt. Pleasant, is not anything like it is on NBC. Meaning, you fall off a sled and you walk in and there's no one there and they say come on in and then they fix you and it doesn't appear that any doctors are drunk or having sex with any other doctors. Also: while viewing, please ignore my fingers/horrible hangnails in front of the camera, I wasn't concentrating, but I don't claim to be Scorsese either.)

It's The Little Things

I got my first pair of snowboots in about twenty years.
This is life-changing.
I'm sorry if you've been waiting for something better than this.
