Not quite skate-able…

We awoke this morning to find our pond frozen over.

It was quite a thrill to the little ones (and big ones, too), even if we can’t break out the ice skates just yet. Chances are it will not have the opportunity to firm up enough for skating… this is Alabama after all. And this is the coldest air we’ve experienced in over a decade.

I suppose we’ll have to settle for skipping rocks and hearing that funny little sound they make as they bounce across the ice.

And seeing just how heavy a rock the ice can support.

Oh, yes. Much fun for the big kids and the little ones.

As for me, I’m content to hibernate until this arctic chill decides to pass.


Ahhh… That feels better.

You can find me snuggled up right over here for the next little bit.
