Annual Christmas Tree hunt

This might be the ninth time in the last 10 years we've gone out into the forest and hunted down our tree. It's cheap, it's fun and every year it's a memorable time. This year was no different. I'd say this is probably just the third time we've headed out into the hills without much snow affecting our search. Mostly just a thick dusting where we were at about 2100 feet of elevation. It's been plenty chilly this November and December, just not much snow. My little loggers at the beginning of the day. All three were bundled up pretty good.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Guddats!

It was last week, but Happy Thanksgiving y'all. We headed over to "The Park" as my parents' house is affectionately called. Three of the five brothers and family were in attendance, so 8 of the 11 cousins got to hang out and play with each other, grandparents and great grandparents, which was great to see. The kids on the bridge with Grandma Sharon. Me with my lady friend. Playing games. I think this one is called headbands. Jerrod rocked it. JJ and Megan really rocked it.
