I have eaten crowsicle. Typically when we went sledding, we dragged our sleds down to the elementary school or to the big hill behind the library. One day, I was feeling a bit too lazy to make the hike, so I suggested to my sisters that we try sledding down the slope of the beach at the lake. It was much, much closer to our house and I thought it would be amazing to go flying over the ice on the lake. Even though it had been a bit warmer lately, I thought the shallow waters of the lake must surely still be frozen. I know– that makes no sense. Well, I was 9.

Chrissy was wrong about some stuff too…you should illustrate those times, they bring me so much satisfaction. I still can’t believe how you can nail her facial expressions using paper…
Love the “CRACK”! Especially where you made the ice crack around the letters – so cool!
I went ice skating on the lake with my middle sister (I am the youngest) once.
It was sooo fun. I was so pumped to skate at the lake and see all of my friends. My sister, like 5 minutes into the skate, skated too close to the pier and her leg went all the way into the frozen water.
I was so bummed. She want to go home!!! grrrrr
I love this one today. Well done, Nicole!
Crack! My fave panel! You never cease to amaze, my dear!
Hi! I too have the ‘CRACK’ sound adhered within my memory banks! Course I didn’t quite hear the crack until after my ‘AIRBORNE Super Saucer’ flew over the bank and into the FREEZIE water! Yea, my snow suite was very crunchy (I’ll never forget that sound either!) However, I’m the oldest, needless to say, I set the bar high for my siblings :) Funny thing is, my brother (the middle one) was rolling down the hill hysterical-he never did try to save me!
I enjoyed this—-love the felt thing.
Love this one, especially! Oh Chrissy…..
P.S., This story reminds me of a sledding excursion of my youth, in which I accidentally rode my plastic orange sled, or pink and purple GT Sno-Racer (I forget which) into the river at the bottom of the ravine. I thought that either the sled would stop before I got to the river, the water in the river would be frozen, or there WAS no water in it at that time. Either way, when I got to the bottom, nature was right, I was wrong, and I was the freezingest thing of all. ;)
i love you,this is blog nice!
Adorable! But glad you’re okay and not… frozen.
