And speaking of making memories, since we have a bunch of great snow and ice on the ground right now, Eric and I thought we would take Addie and Howie out for a spin today. As you can see from the pictures, she had a BLAST!! Howie wasn't too happy we made him pull the sled, but it still made for a cute picture. I mean, have you ever seen a one-doggie open sleigh before?

Oh What Fun It is to Ride In a One-Dog Open Sleigh!
When my Dad told me he made Addison a "little present", I was assuming it was something small. You know...since he was so nonchalant about it. But when he came over last night with a HAND MADE SLED, I couldn't believe my eyes. That's right folks...my Dad made this sled by hand just by looking at a picture online! He steamed the wood to make the skis and everything!!! I am sure I don't even need to brag about his talents anymore, since you have all heard it before, but I am just so amazed at what this man can do. This is another wonderful gift from Grandpa that Addie can treasure for the rest of her life. I just know this sled is going to make so many wonderful family memories.
