Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the Millers!

How does your family celebrate Thanksgiving?
At the Miller home we celebrate Thanksgiving by having a pumpkin shoot every year. For us this takes the focus off of food.

Elijah has Eosinophillic Gastroenteritis and has a feeding tube.  Holidays seem to revolve around food and that's not fun for him. Dakota has food issues also so food events have never been enjoyed by our family.

We look forward to our pumpkin shoot each year. During October we collect pumpkins and set them around our doorsteps and wait for Thanksgiving day.
On Thanksgiving day the boys set the pumpkins out for shooting time.

Then everyone takes turns shooting pistols, rifles and shotguns. I’m sure we look like a bunch of rednecks, but that’s okay, the guys enjoy this part of the day.

I hope your family had a great Thanksgiving day. We enjoyed a laid back Thanksgiving. It was a relaxing day.
