Reindeer Games

First of all, for our loyal readers (hello Papa J), let me apologize for not posting for a while. I think my last post was before Thanksgiving... oops! With the holidays I should have some more time to post.

A few weeks ago, Janie and I decided to build a set of the white wooden deer to put out in our front yard. We found the plans online, purchased them on ebay, waited for the backorder, and finally got them last week. As you can see, we've been busy cutting, sanding and assembling them this week. In between holiday parties and get togethers with friends, we've managed to do everything but paint them and put bows around their necks (there's always tomorrow).

If your curious, the project is pretty easy, as long as you:
a) have a way to haul a 4x8 sheet of plywood (thanks Mom and Roger)
b) have a jig saw (it helps to have the scrolling wood blades)
c) have a moderate amount of patience
d) have a good partner to help you with the work!

Here are some up-close pictures of the project (and a cat who loves the camera).
