    We hosted a successful Thanksgiving weekend with our friends coming from the North and South to relax and renew spirits with convivial festivities. Our first attempt to roast a wine & herb braised turkey (a whopping 20 pounder!) was a rousing success, and it was proclaimed by all to be the most succulent bird to ever cross their lips. We had three kinds of baked desserts, a plethora of sides, excellent wine, and a general feeling of goodwill towards mankind.

    <-We also went to find a Christmas tree for the apartment. Its 12.5 foot ceilings are a perfect height to house a festive pine for the holidays. Armed with a permit, a couple of saws, and a picnic, we set out on an intrepid adventure to find the perfect tree.

    What we did cut down, however, was more of a beanstalk than a Christmas tree. But that’s what you get for $10 in the wilderness.

      How fun! It looks like a great holiday, and it’s good to see your faces and those of Christy, Nathan, and Mandy as well.

      You’ll have to post a photo of the tree once you set it up. I think we’re going to get ours next weekend. I think getting a Christmas tree is quite possibly mavorite part of Christmas.
