Christmas As It Should Be Celebrated

With family.

Thought I'd share this photo with you:

While the rest of the clan was gathered around the fireplace, staying warm on a frigid day, Kaid, Chase and I went to the back of my property to shoot up the countryside.

We had a blast (sorry; pun).

At the same time, both children learned something about gun safety, and about responsibility, and about busting targets (something they became proficient at quickly), and about the bond that holds us together.

Good time had by all.

* That's a Remington Nylon 66 .22, in case you're wondering.
** Yes, both mothers were freaking out.
*** Mothers, on occasion, need to man-up.
**** Hello. It's winter. Did anyone not know that when they brought these poor, under-clothed children to my house?
