Thanksgiving

We were so lucky to have some of our best friends come visit us for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed Thanksgiving with them last year as well. Sarah and I really enjoy cooking together. The men, well... there was a bit of complaining about how little time we spent hanging out with them. Sigh... the sacrifices they made...

The kid's table.
The adults. Our friends, the Fullmer's came for dinner too.Friday afternoon we all went to pick out our Christmas trees. We looked up some U-Cut Christmas Tree farms and picked one to go get our trees. When we pulled up it was an old house with a sign on the door that said, "Go cut tree", and then regarding payment it said, "if no answer (meaning at the door), use coffee can". We got a kick out of this. So we picked up the saws off of the doorstep and drove down the road that led behind the house. And we saw this. Essentially a forest with a road through it. After looking around and deciding that we didn't drive all the way out there for nothing, Jason picked a tree and lopped the top off.We were kind of annoyed at the lack of "christmas tree farm-ness" of the place but were determined to come out with a tree. Matt paced around and finally went for it.After a lot of trimming, we brought the tree in the house.Tab was pooped from a long day of fun.When we were cleaning up, Tab insisted on vacuuming. He actually did a really good job. I think I can feel a new chore coming on.We didn't get around to trimming the tree until Saturday morning. Tab insisted on wearing gloves to protect his hands.
Benny loved helping too.Pais was there.
