Thanksgiving

IMG_7763

Lee and I spent Thanksgiving week down in Oregon, we were in La Grand with the Hart side of the family for the actual holiday.  Great times were had by all, it was wonderful for Lee to catch up with family he has not seen in years and for me to get to meet more family members.  The menfolk did lots of hunting and were successful with 3 elk, and the womenfolk did lots of cooking, crafting, knitting, and shopping.

Not an easy task … They earned their Thanksgiving dinner and healthy helpings of Victoria’s and Grandma Hart’s pies!

Modern day technology greatly assists in dragging out large beasts!
