Mini vacation

Despite all of us having mean colds at one point or another throughout the weekend, we had a fabulous time away in New Hampshire.  We rented a house and went up for 4 days.  Surprisingly, New England's winter playground didn't have a lot of snow, however, we still enjoyed sledding, a sleigh ride, and warm, cozy fires in the wood stove.  A special treat was having Buck and Alyssa join us.  Buck is my brother - his real name is Andrew.  We just call him Buck - as in Uncle Buck.  It was a silly joke that just sort of stuck.  And Alyssa is Thomas' Buck's girlfriend.   Thomas looooves Alyssa.  They are athletic, outdoors people - so they went hiking.  Like, real hiking. We curled up by the fire and watched movies.  That's the kind of people we are.  All in all it was a great time.  Wish we were going back this weekend.
