For Christmas, Micah gifted the rest of us with a lovely family experience. He wrote us a beautiful letter and explained that he wanted to take us all ice skating and then to dinner. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to do all that...and it was awesome:
None of us are good at ice skating at all. ;) (And it's been a couple years since we've been ice skating.) But we had fun.
It helped, too, that we had the rink pretty much to ourselves. (There was one other group when we got there (very entertaining to watch and I'm pretty sure at least one of them should consider going to the doctor, lol) and a family starting as we were finishing, but mostly we were on our own.)
I particularly enjoyed this picture:
From left to right, that's Noah, Micah, Nathan and Asher. ;) Yeah, the taller boys had some gravity issues and we played with the helper things for a short while, lol.
And I managed to get all my guys together for another picture:
After all that, Micah took us to dinner and we warmed up. He even made sure we got some dessert. :) (We also appreciated that our timing was great...skating when the rink was mostly empty and the weather was still fairly warm. Snow and wind started on our way home.)
And that was Micah's Christmas gift to us. Love that kid! :)
