Christmas Tree

We randomly drove out towards Sherwood to look for a place to cut our own Christmas tree.
 The place had a pretty view.
 Finally found our tree! Now to saw it off the base.

 Got it on the car...
And took it home, where we set it up and decorated it.

Thanksgiving 2013

The 4 of us went to my parent's house for Thanksgiving this year. It was a sweet family affair!

Gramma set up the salt tray. It was Ryan's first time with it and he loved it. Jake couldn't wait for his brother to give him a turn as he has played with the salt tray many times but it is always fun.

Happy to be together.
 Ryan had the job of ringing the dinner and dessert bell.
 Papa at work carving the bird.
Gramma set a lovely table. 
While Gramma and Papa prepared the meal, I made an apple pie at home. It was a beautiful, completely covered apple pie that I left cooling on the stove. Later in the day, I went into the kitchen and discovered the middle piece of the pie missing. Jake hadn't been able to resist pulling off the crust and eating it! I was so mad but so amused at the same time. 
 Even with part of the crust gone, it was delicous. We also had pecan and pumpkin pies.
