We were a bit cooped up over Thanksgiving as poor Annabelle came down with a horrible case of strep throat. Once she was feeling better, we ventured out and took the girls for a surprise = ice skating. Annabelle picked it up pretty quickly. The ankle strength isn't there yet for Madeleine but she was a trooper. It had been a LOOONG time since Jon and I ice skated. We felt a little rusty at first but we managed just fine.
