I’m spending the week at my Dad’s house catching up with family and getting some relaxing time before we go racing into the New Year. This is always one of my favorite weeks of the year. It seems like all of life slows down a bit allowing for some good planning and reflection.
Family time at my Dad’s house includes relaxing by the fire, playing games, lots of sweets and always, always a family project.
This year it involved cutting down 3 VERY LARGE trees in the backyard. My dad doesn’t do anything small scale. He rented a lift, recruited a crew of 11 and had a job for each of us. I was tasked with burning all the brush and I sufficiently managed to singe my eyebrows and eyelashes. Wouldn’t be a good family project without a little drama.
Enjoy this little snippet of our family fun!
