This week is a Daddy Vacation week so as part of the vacation week festivities, Daddy went duck hunting with some friends this morning. As you can see it was a productive trip...
Everyone was excited to get in on the post hunt action!
Personally, I'm trying to keep a smile on and act like it's perfectly normal to add these to the piles already on the floor in the garage.
I feel vegetarianism (is that a word??) coming on...
(interesting side bar...the boys looked at the ducks and are now inside playing. Kate is out helping to pull feathers and cut up the meat. Something just doesn't seem right about that. lol!)

Well, our kitchen "remodel" is finally finished! I am so thankful that they finished in time for Christmas! Not that it's helped me get my baking done any faster! I am very thankful that we can now start to get back to our normal level of chaos and disorder without help from Best Builders.

Here are a few pictures of the new kitchen. I tried to find before pics but all I had were these and these from the beginning of the plumbing problems but you get the idea.

Merry Christmas!!

Sugar Plum Ball

Chris took Kate to her first Sugar Plum Ball, which is a daddy/daughter dance to benefit CARTI. It was a little girl's dream come true: a beautiful gown, fancy shoes, curls, and a tiara. They had a blast!

Kate's friends Sally Claire and Sarah Liza went too which added to the fun!
I would have loved to be a fly on the wall but I refrained and let it be a sweet daddy daughter night. These are precious memories for sure!!
