November 2013

The last two months have really flown by.  I was called as Relief Society president in a newly formed ward the beginning of October.  The responsibilities are overwhelming at times, but I have really enjoyed getting involved and better acquainted with sisters in this new ward.

Here are a few highlights from November:
We butchered our 16 Cornish hens on a cold Saturday

2 missionaries from church helped all morning - took hours to pull all the feathers off

It took several more hours to gut, portion and bag the birds.  They weigh about 5 lbs each and taste great!
Jonathan's twin brother, Nathan, spent a few days with us before they both flew to Boise to visit their parents and brothers Rusty & Keith.  They had a great time at this mini-reunion.

Pre-Thanksgiving dinner.  On Thanksgiving day, Sheryl and the boys went to some friends, the Hensches, for dinner.

Day after Thanksgiving, Curtis and I went to the Museum of Science in Boston.  It is a huge, interactive museum. 

The coolest exhibit was about how Pixar makes it's animated films.

Yay! I love having pictures of you guys to look at. I didn't recognize Curtis at first because he is so tall and teenager like!
You are beautiful mom!

I agree with Jessica. You guys are amazing slaughtering your own poultry!
