In New England, at the Reitsma Thanksgiving celebration, one honors what our forefathers/mothers had to do by chopping wood! I like it.....

....but, I'm not that great at it! The key component to not ending up at the ER is to keep your feet apart in case your axe misses entirely and comes winging back at you. We learned the following:
1. The more wood you chop, the more turkey you get to eat.
2. Having your little cousin shout at you "prove your manliness" does not help with your accuracy.
3. Safety goggles are a good thing.
4. You can remain stylish while chopping:)
Hope you all had a great day!


  1. You are the most styling lumberjack I've ever seen, but I'm still waiting to see footage of the Quidditch Cup!

  2. The boots are looking perfect! Rockin' lumberjane style!
