BIRTHDAYS, BUCKS, AND LOTS OF MEMORIES!

THIS WEEKEND HAS BEEN SO CRAZY ALREADY AND IT IS ONLY FRIDAY NIGHT. THIS MORNING, JARED WENT DEER HUNTING WITH MY DAD, UNCLE TODD, AND HIS SONS, DARIK, AND KELLAN. THEY WENT UP TO MY UNCLE PETE'S PROPERTY ABOUT 40 MIN OUT OF SODA. JARED WAS GOING UP TO HELP BRUSH FOR THE REST OF THEM, THINKING HE WOULDN'T SHOOT TODAY SINCE HE WILL HAVE MANY MORE TIMES TO DO IT AND TODD'S SONS ARE ONLY UP FOR A COUPLE DAYS-HE WANTED TO HELP THEM GET THEIRS. WELL AFTER SITTING ON THE RIDGE, UNCLE TODD AND JARED HELPED BRUSH FOR THE OTHERS. AFTER THEY SAW THIS BUCK, THEY ALL TOOK A SHOT-NOTHING. THEN WAS JARED'S TURN-HE GOT IT. GO JARED! IT IS A GOOD SIZE BUCK TOO-CUBBY AND I ARE SO PROUD OF HIM! HE IS JARED THE "MIGHTY HUNTER!"

HERE IS JARED'S COUSIN NATE AND HIS DAUGHTER LILY WITH NATE AND JARED'S BUCK THEY GOT TODAY. THESE ARE THE TWO THAT WENT BOWHUNTING ALL SEASON TOGETHER AND NEITHER GOT ANYTHING...WAITING PAID OFF! GO BOYS!


NATE AND HIS BUCK, AND JARED AND HIS! BOTH ARE A PRETTY DARN GOOD SIZE!

THEN THIS EVENING, I THREW GRANDPA BOB A LITTLE BIRTHDAY PARTY, HE LOVES HIS BIRTHDAY SO MUCH AND IT IS SUCH A BIG DEAL TO HIM. I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS GETTING THE HOUSE CLEAN AND ALL BY MYSELF SINCE JARED WAS GONE. HALLE LIKES TO HELP SO MUCH I USUALLY END UP PLAYING AND DON'T GET MUCH ACCOMPLISHED UNTIL NAP TIME. TODAY I HAD TOO, AND IT JUST HAPPENS THAT SHE TOOK 2 GREAT NAPS TODAY, SOMEONE WAS ON MY SIDE FOR SURE! I HUNG UP SOME DECORATIONS, BOUGHT THE STUFF FOR COBBLER AND THEN WAITED FOR EVERYONE TO SHOW UP. I INVITED 24 PEOPLE AND 24 PEOPLE SHOWED. IT WAS A GREAT TURNOUT AND GRANDPA WAS SO ECSTATIC THAT SOMEONE DID THIS FOR HIM BEFORE HE LEFT TO ARIZONA FOR THE WINTER. WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND WE LOVE GRANDPA BOB SO MUCH!

HERE IS GRANDPA BOB AND I! I JUST LOVE THIS LITTLE MAN!

Way to go on the hunting thing! I know nothing about hunting. Looks like you threw a great pary too! I think birthdays are a huge deal and love a party when I see one!

Wow you guys stay busy! Sounds like you're having a lot of fun. I hope you're feeling better Tonya. Hopefully we can do a play group soon! Quinton misses playing with Halle.
