thanksgiving 2009- definite success. lots of food, lots of loved ones, lots of fun. velzy made lil turkeys for each place setting, she was so funny to watch make them. every turkey had to be different. she can be such a perfectionist. on thanksgiving we were at my parents house with my mom's side of the family. friday was spent in the mountains with my dads family.
this is my great-aunt norma. she is 95 and is so funny. this is her plate, before she hit up the rolls, salad, and turkey. she also had three kinds of pie for dessert. the woman is amazing!
velzy and ivy love my uncle don, they laugh and have so much fun together.
the day after thanksgiving we headed up to my grandpa's house. within 5 minutes of pulling up velzy and ivy were on their horses ready for a ride.

ivy let me ride with her, for a few minutes then she told me to get off. she was so stoked. i am pretty allergic to horses but i popped a claritin and was fine. thank you claritin.
ain't my mom cute?
we were hoping to go shooting around my grandpa's house, but since there has not been any rain yet this year we could not shoot anything major for fear of fire, but there was quite the artillery of red ryders and bows.
it's amazing how much fun a bb gun can be.
this picture should scare you- billings boys with guns.
luke got pretty good at the compound bow- all the 12 year olds were impressed. and i surprised myself a few times.
