How I Spent Christmas Eve

Armed with a 20 gauge shotgun, some shells, and a few beers, we trekked out to Ron's house on Christmas Eve for the first annual mistletoe shoot. Not my usual order of business, but it sounded like too much fun to pass up. It's been many years since I've shot a gun and it's way louder than I remember. But then again, I'm pretty sure I had official ear protectors on. Paper towels were all we had on hand, so I stuffed them in my ears, and away we went. It was so fun and I'm proud to report that I shot out a huge branch (bundle?) of mistletoe. Good times, for sure. Thanks to Maria Camillo for the photos of me.
