The feast was prepared and the guests arrived.
The Treat Family along with neighbors Victoria and John and our neighbors for life Frank and Lizanne.
With our bellies full we ended the evening playing pass the pigs. Always funy to have good friends, family and good food come together.
Friday Martin and Marty hung my new blinds in the green house. In the winter the sun is so low it blinds me while sewing so this will help a great deal.
While the boys were busy us girls stained some trim wood.
The little boys helped to move Grammies plants.
We cleaned out the green house to give our friends the red carpet treatment.
And to prepare for planter beds within the green house.
The little boys wanted to build a ramp so Papa and Daddy helped them create fun.
Wahoooo what fun!
Tanner felt it needed a little bit more off right there.
As the afternoon passed it was half naked riding time.
Yep only 48 degrees and two half naked kids having a ball.
The best thing about Turkey dinner is left over turkey sandwiches.
Saturday morning Martin and Marty went to finish up at a neighbors house so us kids decided to build a tree house. That’s right folks! You heard it here first.
We went to the bone yard and started grabbing wood. Which ever was long enough.
Then a plan was made.
Limbs were trimmed.
More limbs were removed and the first boards were put up.
Then we needed a post. So when you don’t have a 4 x 4 you make one.
Trey screwed the 2 x 4’s together. And that’s how you make a post!
Luckily the big boys finished at the neighbors house and pitched in with their big boys tools.
Ready for the floor.
Somebody is watching closely.
Trey is always ready to help.
Lots of screws to make it safe.
Now for a ladder. We found one already built in the bone yard. The backside of a pallet.
Just a few more screws.
Ready for that first test climb.
The big boys hard at work.
What’s a tree house without a sign? Not an official tree house that’s what.
Just a few tin pieces for safety.
Thankful for the big boys finishing touches.
Nothing more fun than family and building things.
Little Red was bought from a neighbor 16 years ago. I would take Mikaila around the neighborhood when she was just a baby on Red to see the horses and the peacocks. Red was a pit bike at the Giant scale racing. And she was camp bike at the dunes and many miles put on her in our back yard.
Now she needs some TLC and a new key. I see another project in Martins future.
You know the one thing we can always count on for lots of laughs are these three cousins.
Molly, Gracie and Kansas could be found chasing bunnies and sniffing out critters in the bone yard or sun bathing.
We were ready for showers and the ASU vs Arizona game. Now we sit all clean and enjoying the game. After days of cooking we are ready for a steak at Datil. It’s an evening out!
We hope all our friends and family had a great Turkey Day.
Till next time…….
