Epiphany and Lot's of Logs, and Really Sore Arms and Shoulders...

Today we celebrated Epiphany (which is the somewhat forgotten and distorted holiday that celebrates the wise men giving there gifts to Jesus) with a king cake (like a cinnamon thing but with a little baby doll baked into it, and you want to get the piece with the baby) and presents. Mattea got the baby in her slice. I get a new U2 CD for my gift which is great.

Today my Dad and my Grandpa and I filled the flatbed truck with fire wood. It was almost all hickory, which burns really well, but is also about the heaviest kind and I had to spend about three hours loading that stuff be helping my Grandpa split it and then throwing it into the truck for my Dad to stack. And I hurt all over now!

aww that brings back memories!!

beks and i used to go to carpentry shops with her grandpa every summer when we stayed in nc. we'd pile the truck with wood scraps, then go home and unload it. by the end of two weeks we were plenty sore. but we always came back with more muscle then when we left. haha.
