Turkey and Tree

Well.
The turkey got cooked.
Ryan did a super job carving the bird.
Mom-in-law, sister-in-law, aunt all came
to help with final preparations.
There was lots of other good food.
Everyone contributed something.
And we had a great time visiting with family.
Yesterday we got our tree.
See the broken window back there?
Remember that Monday and Tuesday were not the best days?
Wood splitter, fireplaces...
It didn't get better Wednesday.

Our children.
Playing the Olympics.
Throwing "the hammer" (a skip-it toy).
In our driveway.
Not in any other part of the 1 and 1/2 acres
that makes up our yard.
Bad release.
Crash, tinkle.
Hole in glass.
Fun times.

But we always have reindeer Ezzie
to cheer us up.
In spite of the crazy week,
it's been good.
Nice to have my guy home.
Nice be with family.
Nice to get the Christmas decor out.
Nice to listen to Christmas music.
Nice to smell the tree.

Now, I must finish decorating.
And one more Thanksgiving at my mom and dad's tonight.
More turkey.
Yippee!
