Successful last day of Bird Hunting for the Year!

Barry took Logan and Laton Goose hunting on Saturday.
Today is the closing day of the season.
They had a great time hunting,
telling stories,
and killing Geese!
They brought home 2 really nice size geese,
they each weighed about 12 lbs.
Barry decided to try making jerky out of them.
Right now they are marinating, I will
let you know how it turns out!
They all had a very successful Duck and Geese season,
they discovered many new and great places to hunt.
Our boys truly LOVE hunting and treasure the time
they spend with their dad doing it.
Meghan will take hunters safety next year and join the group,
watch out boys, I bet she'll be a great shot!

That's what you get for sleeping in my Bed!

Jaidyn came into our bed in the middle of the night.
I had to get up early to do payroll,
we now have the office in our bedroom,
this is what Jaidyn did when I turned the bedroom light on,
she even got in a little scowl at me as if to say,
"Hey, I am trying to sleep here!"

"Don't Cry Because it's over, Smile because it happened." -Dr, Seuss

I am telling myself over and over again today. We had to put Patches down today. She was 13 years old. The greatest dog you could ever ask for! She was full of cancer. We operated on her about 2 years ago and it came back with a vengence! She will be greatly missed!

What Matters Most

Jaidyn's Tagalong

Tonight I told the kids to get in the car to take Logan to basketball practice. Jaidyn usually grabs her blanket or her papa (pacifier) and runs to the door. Not tonight, I turn around and she is trying to bring along her new musical sit and spin. Logan and I were cracking up. She got very frustrated when we told her it had to stay home. She kept asking but why???? She is so fun and full of new discoveries! You will see below, she has learned to do taco tongue! Well I better go she is grabbing my finger as I type telling me "I go" which means she wants all my attention!

Yearly Duckhunt at the Vivian

Barry takes the boys once a year to a duck club in Marysville, Ca. This year they stayed in the house called the Prairie. He has been taking Logan since he was about 3 or 4 years old. ALL the boys look forward to this hunt! They have a great time just being out doors and acting like boys! I am thankful for times like this when Barry is able to spend quality time with our boys. I know Logan and Laton are thankful as well. The hunt was very successful to say the least. They came home with 28 ducks and 1 goose (Logan killed the goose), no banded birds (darn) but a great hunt. Now we are trying to find some free time to have a duck feed!

New Sunbeams

On Sat. we had an activity at church to introduce the primary kids to their new teachers. I will be the Sunbeam teacher again this year so I will have a new group of kids. I met the kids and took them to our new room to get to know each other. During one of our conversations one of the little girls told me she had tree nut allergies, which I was glad to know as I bring snacks on Sundays for them. After hearing this I asked the other children if their was anything they were not allowed to eat and one of the little boys piped up and told me he couldn't eat buggers! I almost fell out of my chair laughing!!!
Yesterday I taught them for the first time and I will just say they kept me on my toes. I will have to be very creative with this little group of kids! I guess I was spoiled with my class last year, I sure do miss them!

Christmas 2009

Meghan got some press on nails in her stocking, they lasted about 4 days before she couldn't stand them any longer.

This is the look Jaidyn got on her face with every present, she acted soo surprised at each gift. She was truly enjoyable this year. We had so much fun with her.

We had a quiet and enjoyable Christmas this year. This is the first year since we have gotten married that we have been alone. We usually have a few family members join us. TJ and Sunny came for a few almost a week before Christmas, but they had to head home Christmas Eve. We missed family but enjoyed each other! After Christmas dinner we drove around and tried to find some deer to photograph, we lost light before finding any. Oh, well next time. :)
