Snow = sled time

We’ve had several snows this winter, but today was the first time we were able to take Jadzia out for some sledding action. We put some hot tea in a thermos, dressed Jadzia in triple layers, and headed out.

We took her to the place my dad always took us when we were kids: Killer Hill in Florissant.

Since we didn’t own a sled, we took our trash can lid. Unfortunately, it didn’t work — at all.

So we decided to drive around and buy one. Of course the roads were still treacherous, but we eventually made it to a K-mart and found a nice blue sled. We drove back to Killer Hill and I tested it several times while Yoli fed a hungry Jadzia in the car. It worked very well and much fun ensued.

If you click the image below, you can watch video of us sledding:

Two videos for the price of none

I put together a couple short videos from stuff that happened recently. For those of you in San Antonio, we intend to make longer versions of these and other videos and ship them to you on DVDs very soon. (Viewing these movies requires the most recent version of Apple’s QuickTime software)


Jadzia’s first birthday

After moving into our house, the first thing we did was have a birthday party for Jadzia. Her grandparents and her cousin and aunt and uncle were able to attend.


Jadzia in the pool

When we traveled to San Antonio a few weeks ago, we were very much looking forward to taking Jadzia into the pool with us. Here are a few quick clips of her in action. Please try to ignore the blindingly white dad next to her on the screen.

Screams in the night

Okay, so Yoli has been playing around with the video camera she got for Christmas. Today was the first time we hooked it up to the Mac and tried to edit some video. I had an idea for one of the clips of Jadzia crying at night. Click the image below to see/hear the movie:
