This weekend, of course, has been filled with Thanksgiving and my boys were thankful for their cousin coming for a visit from Phoenix. Another fire ensued as well as some target practice down in the field. We filled in extra minutes with poker games, dancing, catching critters in a live trap and, Hallelujah, a haircut for my littlest bro, Joey!
I am a fan of short hair on a guy but Joey prefers his on the longer side. For a year or two now I have been itching to take a pair of scissors, a knife, or really any sharp utensil to Joey's hair and he finally let me.
For the record, I used scissors!
Boys and fire ~
Is there a more dangerous combination?
Oh yes, boys and knives!
I love cousins...they always will be your friends ~
Big boys and little boys love fires ~
More time with cousins ~
My girls are going to clean house in a poker game someday!
Okay, so maybe my boys too ~
The fine art of bluffing they are slowly learning ~
Nickles & Dom were not too thankful for a shared chair at Thanksgiving dinner~
BUT they were thankful for the pies that followed!
Dancing ~ Dancing ~ Dancing ~
We are thankful for Auntie Margaret teaching us how to dance.
Michaela and Kath are hell bent on ensuring that they share their knowledge with all their cousins and friends.
What a crazy night ~
The walls were pulsing from the music when suddenly our parish priest
was standing in our midst.
He stopped by as he was driving over the Pass.
Nothing like a little holiness to keep everyone in line!
Tickling the ivories ~
What a hip-hip-hippie!
The eyes are the lamp of the soul, Joey!
