Thanksgiving Sled Rides...

Uncle Craig followed by Celina and Kendra...

After Thanksgiving dinner Grandpa Channer pulled the kids (and some kids at heart) around on sleds with the Argo.

Thanksgiving Shoot 2009

The Firing Squad

(Karter, Dawson, Kace & Caden)
Come Thanksgiving, before there is the smell of turkey, there is the smell of gunpowder in the morning. This was our third year joing in the traditional Thanksgiving shoot. We could not have asked for better weather. Clay pidgeons were launched of a small cliff onto floating chunks of ice. We built a fire in the snow, drank hot cocoa, and unloaded a healthy amount of ammunition.

Halloween through the years...

1997...The First Duffy Family Halloween.

Blast from the Past: 1981 Daddy as Chewy











A look back at our "Spooky" kids over the years. Missing a few of the early years, but will try to get them (if any of you have early halloween pics please scan and send). As the kids got older they tended to lean more to the scary. During the early years (yeah we're old and have "early" years) we did themes: 2000 was Kenni as Bo-Peep and Kace as the lamb, and 2003 we had Batman, Robin, and Batgirl. tar Wars showed up 3 separate years (missing from the 2002 pic is Kace as the young Annikan Skywalker), 4 times if we go back to 1981!

Trick or Treat!

Grandma Channer...

Celina was a teenager...plus fairy wings!....

Kace was the richest kid in 5th Grade...


Kendra was a Gothic Bride...

Karter was a Naval Aviator!...

Karter in Uncle Devin's armor...

For Halloween we went to the Trunk or Treat. However, due to high winds (which made colder an already traditionally cold day) the kids Trick or Treated indoors. When it comes to kids and candy the method to the madness is secondary. Uncle Dave and Aunt Jessica were there with Dawson (boxer) and Caden (Snake Eyes); and Uncle Craig and Aunt Becca were there with Ava (Pirate). After the Trunk or Treat we all rallied over the Channers house for some more Candy, and we all visited for awhile.

Uncle Devin and Aunt Nicole, who just moved up here, were there and the boys got to try on his body armor (a funny site since the armor weighs nearly 40lbs.) Unlce Devin will be deploying soon to Afghanistan, as will Uncle Jeremy (my recently engaged little brother).
