Zach's still facinated by Christmas lights and insists that we string them up around the porch and the eave of the house every year. When he was little we'd take him for a drive to show him all the Christmas lights and he'd say, "LOOK PopPop, LOOK, They're all lit up!" We still do the drive thing around the Christmas holidays to look at all the lights and he still enjoys it just as much.
Jillian will be old enough this year to really enjoy Christmas. She's already philfering the ornaments off of their tree! Jerri's Christmas theme this year is Santas and she's so talented in doing these things. My theme is sentimental, whatever someone's given me, or I've come across that I liked, finds it's way on the mantal, or tree, or is sitting around decorating some spot in my house. My absolute favorites are things the kids have made.
I really had fun visiting with Trish and the girls on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. I came home on Saturday because I'd promised Zach we'd put the tree up. They'll be back at Christmas but not until the weekend after because of Trish's work. Hopefully, that weekend, I'll be able to get a photo of all the kids together.
My son got a deer on their Thanksgiving hunting trip. He shot it right before dark on the very last day. How lucky is that? I won't eat venison but will cook some of the tenderloin for Zach and James for supper tomorrow.
I hope everyone had a grand holiday!
