I had the week off of school so Christian planned a short trip to a cabin in Hillsdale. We rented a car with our friends Steve and Allie and drove about three hours north of the city. It was the perfect little getaway. Fresh air and trees and nothing to do. The place was absolutely beautiful. It snowed off and on the whole time we were there and I loved watching the snowflakes flutter down outside the window while reading my book next to the fire. Of course, the boys did some snow adventuring, but I was content to just take a few pictures of them shoveling and crawling around. Snow is pretty but it's cold. And wet.
