This first picture may disturb some of you. I'm sorry if it does. We are not vegetarians and my Shug is a deer hunter. I won't get on my soap box about venison vs. beef, unless you ask for it.
So, we were all excited about sleeping in Thanksgiving morning. But that morning my Shug wakes up and says, "I'm going hunting....see ya later." I said, "just snuggle and go back to sleep." I woke up half hour later...alone. Then about an hour later, while I was fixing the green bean casserole, I receive a text..."I got one." My thought.....great, we're going to be late for Thanksgiving dinner. We were NOT late. We were, in fact, the first ones there!
So I went over to ask the neighbor for help, and I drove my neighbor into the woods, where my Shug was waiting for us.
But this kid (my Mom) will not! My niece brought her this piece just begging her to try it. She tried a teeny weeny bite. It's a very tender meat.
This beautiful lady on the left is another niece, and her husband. I told you all a couple of months ago she was expecting. Sad to say she lost the baby.
After dinner, the guys tried to nap and the girls wanted to look at the ads....but my Sister had something else in mind.
And she wanted us all to make some ornaments.
Whooops...one small casuality!
The guys were in the other room watching the game....
while we crafted away....I know it's hard to see some of the ornaments. (me)
My niece (my brother's oldest child - my brother and his wife and other two children couldn't make it because he had to work)
This niece was not happy. She didn't like the way her ornament turned out and wanted to make another one. But we had to wait and see if we had enough...and we had to get the guys in here.
I think her ornament is cute. I don't know why she didn't like it.
Guys...come on.....hiding behind the pillows will not save you.
Dad, you did NOT make that ornament. Mom made it for you.
Andrew...don't look so happy. This is fun. (my nephew - my brother's son)
Yeeeaaa...one guy done...a few to go.
see how cute.
finally....My brother-in-law made one. His is black and gold for Purdue.
Andrew looks much happier.
My shug does not look happy. Hmmm, maybe he just woke up from a nap.
My Sister's father in law concentrating very hard.
He put Pops on one side because that is what his grandaughter (my niece) calls him.
And here's the deal. I thought we were making them to take home. Nope...they are going on a "Family tree." How special. They were all hanging at odd angles because some of them had glue and paint on them and had to dry.
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
