Christmas Open House

Luckily I got a few photos of the set up that Lynn and Tracy slaved to create. 40-some folks dropped by during the evening, from across quite a range of friend circles that all of us at the Compound have. What an eclectic mix! We're in the spirit now! (Not that we needed much help.)

And a break-through with the kids... We set up the mancave as a kid party area, with their own goodies and games. And lo and behold, with as many as 8 of them at a time (all under 10, some well under 10), they handled themselves exceptionally well. No broken bones, no artwork on the walls! Can I get a Merry Christmas!?

3rd Annual Great Pumpkin Roll

The Compound celebrated our 3rd annual pumpkin roll. Every year, after Thanksgiving, we roll our massive pumpkins down our steep hill. Any reason to have an event equals Good Times!

Thanksgiving at the Compound

Our family is blessed and have many things to be thankful for. Thanksgiving day itself is a blessing for our family because every year we are able to spend the day with 30-40 of our closest friends and family.

Everyone brought their favorite sides and we Grilled and BBQed both a 30 pound turkey and 20 pound primerib. mmm . . . A true feast!!!

Notice the 80-something year old next to the 80-something week old!

Here are some great pictures of the event:
