We celebrated our 10 year anniversary by having a kids free day. We went to pittsburgh and saw the Hobbit in 3d, then we went to Chili's for dinner and discussed the past 10 years and the next 10 years. We made it home to put the kids to bed and then relaxed on the couch with the fire going. A great day and a great 10 years.
Joe has been very busy at work and hasn't been out hunting too much. Today was the last day and we had a lot going on with swimming lessons and then I have a shower to go to tonight, so he wasn't going to go out. I took the dogs for a walk after swimming and heard four shots. So we went in and I told joe and he decided to take a stroll. In less than 10 minutes I heard a shot, and shortly thereafter he comes home with this 6 point. The boys seemed to like it, and we're asking many questions. They are currently on their way to donate the meat to a food pantry.
In trying to figure out who Madison looks like I stumbled across this picture of Graham. They look very similiar and Madison likes to eat her hands just like Graham did. Graham weighed 16 lb at his 4 month check up and Madison weighed 14 lb 9 oz. It appears that she may be taking after her middle brother.
We put up a second tree this year. The boys have too many ornaments and with 4 kids if every child gets one or two ornaments each year we get a huge amount. So we put the tree upstairs in the loft. They helped arrange the branches. We put lightening McQueen as our train around then tree. Today after church we divided the ornaments into a pile for each boy. They were then allowed to put them where they wanted to. As you can see no ornament is above 3 ft tall. They all put them in their own section of the tree. Eli's is on the other side of the tree. We haven't found a star yet for the top as I bought one that was to heavy and it toppled over. So we will try again.
