Winter fun!

Last night I was woken to the sound of coyotes. To be precise, what sounded like several coyotes howling under my window. I looked outside, and with the moon and snow it was rather bright out, but I couldn't see any. This afternoon I decided we all needed a fun diversion and we went out to find tracks. We found several rabbit tracks and found that a rabbit lives under the old chicken coop structure. There were several deer trails and our pond is frozen over. We did find a few coyote prints, and a place where someone "marked" the trail, which the kids found to be the most exciting part.
Magical Morning
Throwing snow
Walking in woods
HAHA! I don't even know! Running home!

Afterwards they wanted to play outside, and of course I let them. I sat in the kitchen by our sliding doors with my camera that had the telephoto lens attached to get my favorite sort of shots of the kids, photos of them playing, without knowing Im taking photos..
