We're so pleased to announce the arrival of Henry's cousin, William. He was born on his due date, January 13th, in Sydney, Australia, and weighed in at 6 lbs 10 oz and 20". Everyone is already at home recuperating. We hope we get to snuggle with his sweet face soon!
On a recent winter walk, we came across a house with these magnificent colored balls of ice in the front yard and it only took one second for Eric and I to decide that we needed to have some of these glorious orbs in our own front yard. Like now.
So we undertook our experiment immediately and after waiting a couple of days for the ice to harden, we were finally able to unveil our masterpieces. We now present them here for your enjoyment...
"We're going to go OUTSIDE!!!"
The boys excited to see how the ice turned out.
Henry loves being outside. And we love his zebra hat. And his smile.
Henry and Dad uncovering the first ice ball. Orange!
Henry arranged them himself. ;) Doesn't our house look festive?
We tried several colors - blue, orange, purple, teal, green, red. I think the teal is my favorite.
"So, is it time to go inside now? Turns out, it's cold out here!"
Our adventure comes to an end and our little frozen dude is still thawing out.
This was such a fun experiment and one we'll likely make a tradition as long as we live in the frozen tundra. Hey, if you're going to live in a freezer, you might as well make ice balls, right?
