Madison roasting marshmallows
December 1st 2009 has been my favorite day at our new home so far. We built our first fire and spent the whole evening laying on blankets, listening to Christmas music and being mesmerized by the flickering flames. I made a beef stew and we roasted marshmallows while intermittently talking, laughing, crawling, wrestling, and reading. Because of the flash on the camera the pictures don't really capture the dark, warm, firelit feeling of the atmosphere. It was the perfect night.
