Our old grill was a wedding gift. That means that it was eleven and a half years old! It was time for it to go. The grates were almost completely rusted through and the frame was falling apart. Julie and I found a good deal on a grill on our pre-Christmas shopping spree and Ken's friend Norman agreed to deliver it to our house.
Ken was very excited when he saw the note about the grill. ("Santa" wasn't actually strong enough to bring it inside, so the actual grill was hidden in the garage. Ken just unwrapped a huge box with a note about the grill in it.) As soon as the unwrapping chaos was over, he went outside to put his grill together. Then it got dark and started snowing, so he didn't get the chance to finish it. He brought the pieces inside and covered up what he had already completed.
His work schedule and the weather was such that he didn't get to finish the construction until New Year's Day. With the kids gone and his grill finally finished, we made ourselves a fancy New Year dinner. Did I mention how early it gets dark these days??
|Good thing he has a head lamp!!|
|Apparently, that's a side-burner!|
