Last night, the Buxton family...
went to Nick's Garden Center...
to buy a Christmas tree.
It was cold...
and the trees were expensive.
Sorry, James. No pink tree for you!
After a lot of looking...
and a lot of silly pictures...
we finally found just the right tree and a whole bunch of free candy canes. Don't take them all, James!

Short visit

Darcy had missed her Aunt Carol almost as much as me. This week, we both got a little fix.

It's hard to be Darcy

Today was Thanksgiving, and Darcy spent the entire day waiting for her turkey dinner.
It was a long wait, and Darcy was hungry. She decided to take matters into her own paws.
Oh no! Intrusion detected.
Intrusion repelled.
Sorry, Darcy. This turkey's not for you.
This is your turkey dinner.
It's almost as good.... (not really!)
Nom! Nom! Nom!

Fall leaves 2004


Fall leaves

Today is winter, but last week was fall.
We have a big pile of leaves in our backyard.
When the kids were younger, they were happy to pose in a pile of leaves.
They're too old for that now, so this job has fallen to the dogs.
Good girls, Darcy and Emma!

Candy corn

Ryan went to the store to buy supplies for an upcoming car repair, and now there's a big bowl of candy corn on the stove. I guess he really is my kid.
