Takin’ care of bidness

Happy weekend to ya!  I’m glad to have Eric back finally.  He was gone all week starting his new job, so we were all pleased when he returned.  While he was gone, Avery FINALLY learned to ride her trike.  That ought to teach him not to leave!  AND she’s gone several days with no potty accidents.  Big week this week, I tell ya.

With him finally back, it was time to get down to bidness.  With it being somewhat warm, we prepared for cold.  My delicate fingers cannot handle putting lights up when its cold.

Another important matter of business – blowing the water out of the hot tub pipes. Had to be done.

Mux kept an eye out for a dog wearing a bright orange vest.  Safety first, right Lacy?

And Eric got to work on the ice rink.  He has delicate fingers too.

I like the fall leaves with the Christmas lights.  Nice juxtaposition.

And here I did some trickery that involved doubling up the lights to hide the burnt out bulbs.  I even added 3 new strands this year!  Lame!

Avery was happy to assist in the ice rink assembly.

And I got to tug at each strand of the 3 new sets of lights to make the icicles, well, more icicle like.  They come all bunched up.

We have the lights on for tonight – a sneak peek, if you will.  Then they will go dark for 3 more weeks while we pay our respects to the turkey.  And with that – a cartoon funny for you.
