Jonathan and David took care of our neighbors' animals for a few days last week.
They are so cute! I had a lot of fun photographing them. :)

Target Practice

On Saturday we went out for some target practice. We all enjoy shooting!Shooting the Mauser - a German gun our grandfather found during WWII and gave to us.
The boys have been saving our old milk cartons for several months. They fill them with water and set them up on blocks of wood for targets.
It's a lot of fun to shoot at them because they make such a big "explosion".
Examining a blown-up carton
The Mauser is a lot louder than our other guns.
Throwing skeet
Daddy and the boys are good shots and can hit the skeet. The rest of us have to shoot at still targets. :)

FIRE! Anna hitting the target

Christmas 2009

Our Christmas tree
We all enjoy getting stocking stuffers for each other. As you can see in this picture, the stockings are not nearly big enough. :)
We got a few flakes of snow this Christmas! :)
We are grateful for a warm house.
