Waiting for Family

I'm at my parents' house with my two little boys waiting for my sister's family to get here for Christmas. Out the window and off in the distance an ice fishing shanty is set up on white blanketed Black Lake and four men near the middle of the lake gesture, dressed in hoodies and jackets and boots. Beyond the tall brown reeds, a wide expanse of white where the lake is covered in ice and snow, and beyond the lake another strip of dried reeds, and beyond that a dark green serrated skyline of pine.
