the week leading up to new years, my cousins from tennessee came into town! it had snowed a ton the day before, and luckily had not melted. the night they got there, someone mentioned sledding, just as a joke, but we thought it would be pretty fun! so, we decided to go sledding, and wouldn't let a little darkness stop us. they almost never get snow up there, so it was a real treat for them to get to experience that. (even if it's a little childish.. haha!) 

thanks to the trusty tools of photoshop, i was able to brighten some of our photos so that you can actually see them. even though the photos are horrible, it was still so much fun, spending time as a bunch of kids. we had fun, just like our old times as cousins.
