Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello folks,
Sorry about the bad blogging.
I was distracted/busy/sick/relaxing.
Anyways, married life has been a blast.
There's nothing quite like coming home to your best bud everyday, especially when he is so stinkin' funny.

Over the break my sister and her boyfriend, Brian, introduced me to Guitar Hero.

They came over and we had homemade sushi.
Jeremiah's aunt Sabrina had given us a "make your own sushi" basket as a wedding present, complete with everything we could possibly need for a sushi feast (ingredients included).
We've made it 3 times now and I dare say that we are pretty good now.
Heather and Brian, what do you think?

Heather and Brian are brave. This was their second time coming over for dinner. They shared Thanksgiving with us too and here are some pictures from that day.
I brined the turkey in a contractor's bucket.
We also carved the turkey with one of Jed's fixedblade Benchmade knives.

no thanksgiving meal is complete unless one of the guests dons a confederate civil war hat


  1. I felt like I was there with y'all. The food looked so delish & healthy. Food is so beautiful to look at, isn't it? God made all those fruits & vegetables a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue.

  2. Aw--
    I made my first pie crust from scratch recently, too--It took a little while for me to get the consistency right, but it tasted pretty good.
