Happy Holidays

Ah, the smell of roasting turkey and stuffing, pumpkin pies and all the goodies of the season. Fortunately for us, mom and dad put on a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner, as the accommodations in the basement are a little tight yet for hosting large groups. Ever try cooking a 20 pound turkey in a toaster oven? Me neither, and this wasn’t the year to start.

 

 

 

 

We did get to host visitors at the school for the holiday, a first for us. Grace was here for the whole weekend, and among other activities, helped G&G pick out a Christmas tree..

 

Our tree at the school is a bit more diminutive…we will have to give only small gifts this year to make sure they fit.  I think this is a great first tree – sure to only get bigger from here.

 

And the California cousins stopped by to take a tour as well. I think they were impressed by our high-class living accommodations.  Except for this picture, they generally bundled up well and kept warm (and then, like true Wisconsin-ites, we went and ate ice cream at the dairy).

 

 

The cousins also got to learn new skills, such as four-wheeling and log splitting. Future lumberjacks? 

 

 

 

 

 

A great surprise was Farmer George stopping by with a gift from him and Marsha with the perfect holiday / welcome to the neighborhood / Happy Husker Schoolhouse themed gift. We love our neighbors.

 

Check out our new schoolhouse mugs! These will be to go-to mugs for our future visitors.

 

 

 

 

 

And we notched up our Christmas lights on the school from last year. This year we are featuring the bell tower (although I suspect it looks somewhat like a rocketship).

Happy Thanksgiving and looking forward to a Merry Christmas for you all!
