Kaden's 1st Hunt

Mark found out yesterday something that made a little 6-year old boy very happy!!! Kaden was able to go on his first youth deer hunt today. Mark had been thinking that 7 was the "Conservation Correct Age"--nope, 6 year-olds get to try it. Anyway... they left bright and early this morning. Came back several hours later, unsuccessful. They went out again this afternoon and after about 3 minutes in the tree stand, Kaden shot his first buck. To say he was thrilled is probably an understatement!! :-)

Kaden with his prized possession!! We went and met them in the field so that we could watch all the gory work. ;-) Khara loved seeing it field dressed and wanted to help, Kelsey... not so much!

Calling Grandma to share the news. I LOVE his T.H.R.I.L.L.E.D. facial expression!!!

Both sides of the buck's antlers had been broken off in fights!!

"We're from the country and we LOVE it that way!!" :-)

Memories to last a lifetime.....

--A Fun Halloween--

Another night of trick-or-treating has come and gone, and my four kiddos loved it!!! Just something about dressing up, putting on a little face paint, and going around town getting a little sugar from acquaintances thrills them!!! :-)

Checking out some of the inventory!! What a fun night!!!
