Too Cold and Too Hot

 What did we do this past weekend.  Have another crawfish boil - You would think we LOVE those things around our house.  But actually the truth is (as far as Todd and I are concerned) we just love the friends and family that go with them.  This is what our driveway/yard looks like most weekends when Josh is home.  Our neighbors can vouch for that. 

The guys wanted to have a crawfish boil, so crawfish boil we did.  But baby it was WAY TOO COLD!  So what do you do when its too cold for a crawfish boil and you are having it anyway---  Light up the chimnea baby!

What do you do when you dont have any wood for the chimnea and you cant even find any at the hardware store to buy???  Yep, you cut your own. We didnt need that limb anyway. 
 A little tag teaming went on.

OH MY   :)

 You see all that steam, that proves it was WAY TOO COLD!  Brrrrrrrr
 You see what Charlie is doing here in this next picture???  Yep that may or may not be the reason that the crawfish was TOO HOT.  (Even for me)  Well actually the crawfish wasnt the part that was too hot.  It was the corn, potatoes, and other goodies within.
 Oh sweet Todd doesnt mind cooking those crawfish, but he doesnt want to eat them.  No thank you.
 These pictures make it look like Todd did the cooking here.  Actually he just stirred once or twice.  The cooking was done by Charlie and Tance mostly.

 This little sweetheart had to stay inside for most of it since it was WAY TOO COLD outside.  She already had a cough and was on breathing treatments... :(   Believe me she would have rather been out where all the action was.  She got to come and go a little bit.  Some of us ate ours inside with her.  Since you know, it was WAY TOO COLD out for a crawfish boil, even if the crawfish and fixins were TOO HOT.
