First of many busy weekends

This year, like the last 4 years we were invited to spend Thanksgiving with our friends out at their fishing lodge.  Silverking lodge for Thanksgiving is one of our favorite weekends of the year.  It is a quick weekend of eating, shooting guns, and playing games.  Traditions we enjoy at Silverking are eating chili cheese dip, watching Joe Dirt (although I never make it far into that one), playing warewolf and the sign game, and of course the trap shooting contest.  This year Reid and I won both divisions of the tournament.  Reid spent most of the time throwing clay pigeons so I thought I would show you a picture of that.  It was such a nice day and we were out there for hours, as is tradition.  Reid didn't think through the whole throwing clay pigens for three hours thing and the consequences he might face the next day as he was playing in a 3 on 3 basketball tournament.  He was pretty sore, but they still managed to win the tournament.  He has won the tournament every year that he has played in it.  After the tournament, which ended at 1am Reid and I ran home and got a few hours of sleep before church the next morning.  After church we went for a Christmas tree with our buddy Carter and while trying to use the self-timer Reid got this accidental shot.  It was too funny not to post, so here it is!  Enjoy! 
Can't wait to see you guys in a few days!  WAHOOO!

I Believe in Santa

I would like to see if I can make shirts again for all the kids but I will need sizing very soon if I'm going to pull it off in time for them to have them early.  Post their sizes as a comment to this message please!  Thanks

Thanksgiving with the Cahoon's

Thanks to Mom and Dad who showed up on our door at 8:00 am Thanksgiving day!  Mom helped me make a super Thanksgiving Dinner, and Dad fought over watching sports and Westerns with James.  Then we went and got our Christmas tree.
