Thanksgiving at Jarom's Place

One of the kids took this picture.  It turned out rather pretty.
Daisy's habitat.  Bless her egg-laying heart.

Watching "The Christmas Story."

Jarom's leg lamp ornament.

Good ol' Ralphy.

James and Bryson had a gun fight.  I wish Bryson's face hadn't turned out blurry, but you can still see the pure joy.

Making History

Living in the swing state of Colorado, the kids and I have done quite a bit of campaigning for the Romney/Ryan team.  Today we finished what we started.

Goodbye Rosie

This is Rosie.  When we learned she was a dude, we renamed "her" Roosevelt.

James begins the chase.

Roosevelt thought he would be safe under the jungle gym. 

He didn't have a prayer.

It's hard to take a life--especially when it's looking right at you. 

Tessa helps hold the feet.

Preparing to make the first slice.

Feeling for the pulse. 
Dipping the bird in hot water helps the feathers to come off easier. 

Helping to pull all the feathers off. 

The kids played with the chicken feet. 

When James started pulling out the innards, the kids got really grossed out. 

Marie kept her ears covered because she didn't want to hear the crunching of bone.

Ben thought he was going to be sick. 

Roosevelt's final resting place.

Spring Break


I know, I know.  I'm pathetic.  I am so far behind in posting.  More to come...
