St. Nicholas at Wolf Creek

Since my mother is from the Netherlands, we have always celebrated St. Nicholas (Dutch Christmas). This year we celebrated on the weekend before Thanksgiving, since we would all be together(it's usually on Dec. 6th). As part of the tradition, we all draw names and make a homemade gift and write a poem about the person whose name we drew. A candybar is always included as part of the gift :) Here are some of the highlights:

No Hicken get-together would be complete without some kind of music performance.
I had Jay, and made him a space simulator.
We were fascinated by the Denison's ability to communicate while brushing their teeth. Apparently they plan their days this way.

Happy Halloween!!

Clint and I were Hillbillies for Halloween!We helped out again this year at Mystique's Trick-or-Treat. The kids had to be brave enough to come and get their candy bar off the old man's lap. Clint and I traded off being the old man. We added scary lights and music, but even without it looks pretty creepy.
These shrubs scared the kids as they left.
We make such a cute couple!!!
