That big smile is due the the fact that she has just received a Dooney and Bourke purse.
Now, it is time to take the tree down and put Christmas away.
I also have to remove all breakables out of the family room since we also got a 3-1 game table. All I can imagine is ping pong balls flying across the room and breaking something. LOL

I did give my husband one of his gifts early. Actually it is for the whole family. I purchased a Bluray Player.
On Christmas day we will be driving to New Alburn, MN. It is around a 2 1/2 hour drive to spend the day with my husbands mom. After that we head home to spend the evening with some of our closest friends.
I can not wait for this to all be over. LOL

This is very funny to watch. My little man is in the back row in the green shirt getting his arms stuck on the risers. I am glad the program was only a 1/2 hour long because the kids were losing interest fast.

Other things. Now I really do not like to talk politics. The debates they cause can wreck friendships. But this whole thing going on in Chicago really has me talking. When they had the news conference and they investigator said "Illinois is the Most corrupt state" I just could not stop laughing. I guess you have to look at its history and ask yourself were you really surprised.
And the employees taking over the window plant. Yeah, that was awesome. I would do the same thing.
I got somewhat good news. Instead of the company I work for losing 150k this quarter we made 18k. Which does not seem like a lot but that mean the we are doing something right.
So how has your week been going?

So here are my plans for today. Laundry.( I missed my Friday laundry days), wrap Christmas presents (no kids home I can do it all out in the open) Organize my shoes(yes I really need to do that). My husband says why do you have so many shoes when you only have 2 feet. I will have to photograph my shoes so you can see what he is talking about. Just like clothing he asks me why I have so much. Hmmm, lets see. We live in a state where I need 2 wardrobes. One for summer and one for winter. And then I have my work clothes I do not work in a office I work manufacturing so I need clothing that can get yucky. Then I need non work clothing. I like to look nice so sue me. Plus, I have already eliminated 4 bags of clothes that I do not wear.
I think this evening I will have the kids trim the Christmas tree. We already have the yard set up with lights it just does not look as good as it would look out there if there was snow. Something about brown grass just does not make you think Christmas.
So what are your plans today?

The first step is to skin the deer. Now these girls have been
hanging a while so they are frozen solid. Which makes
things a little harder to do.
For us this is a family affair. Everyone wants to be involved.
PULL, PULL , PULL.

Here you see one of the reasons why this year the harvest for deer was down 23k. The corn is still up. And even if you are in a stand 16 feet up that corn is still in the way.
This year we have harvested 3 deer so far with 5+ tags to be filled. This is one of the guys we hunt with. Behind him is CORN. Now some of the next pictures you may find graphic or offensive. Just give you a head up

I am so proud of him and the hard work that he does. He has been able to prove himself to others and they see that he has great potential.
