IT'S OVER!!!!!

I think it's so cute that Braden is holding onto Richard's hand. This boy LOVES his daddy, and wants to be with him at ALL times. The bunny ears...well, he's a 10 year old boy. What do you expect?
This picture cracks me up. It is so their personalities. Braden has that sheepish grin, and Bryce is busting out laughing. If I had to guess, they're laughing because one of them probably farted!! I know that's disgusting, but that, my friend, is life with three boys!!

As of today, for this family, hunting season is officially OVER!!! Can you tell I'm a little excited about it? I think this might top Christmas for me this year! I haven't posted much about it because I really didn't want to put it out there how much I've been by myself the past couple of months. I also didn't think you would really appreciate lots of pictures of dead deer, and even a beaver...I know, don't ask.

Richard has taken some configuration of the boys every weekend for a while. They LOVE it, and I think it's a great thing for them to do with their dad. Alot of the time, I end up with Cade because he really doesn't enjoy being still and quiet in a deer stand (he's my child). Being by myself is nice for a short time, but overall, I don't like it. I'm not scared, I just get lonely. A couple of weeks ago, between hunting and work, Richard was gone 6 out of 7 nights. That's just too much! One reason they've gone so often is because we actually sold the camp. They've been busy packing everything up. It will close in a couple weeks and we are both excited about it. The boys...not so much, but they don't pay the bills, do they. Maybe in a few years, we'll get another place that's closer to home, but for right now, this is the right thing to do.

So I sit here (me and Cade) awaiting our hunters return for good!! I think we're going to go see Mall Cop tonight because we have MLK day tomorrow and don't have school!! Yay!! The movie trailers look hysterical, so I hope it's good. Tomorrow, I'm going to meet with the guy that does our baseball uniforms. Yes, we go straight from hunting to baseball. I couldn't be more thrilled!!

Zoe's trying to talk us into seeing Hotel for Dogs. However, football is on so we won't be going anywhere.

I'm with you about hunting - excited when it's over. I do love baseball season. With 4 nephews I see a lot of games. (And, enjoy everyone of them!)Good luck this coming season!

Hunting is something my boys enjoy with their dad as well. They go out a couple times a year but obviously not as often as you guys. How cool that they get to spend such quality time with their dad-- that is exactly what the boys need at this age!!!

have a nice day off!!

I laugh so hard at the previews for Mall Cop....we want to see it also.

I am glad the season is over...these are great memories the boys are having with their Dad. These are my husband's most fondest memories with his Father.

Erin said...

You've got some boys around there for sure... I laughed at the "farting". It is such a big part of life around my house too. Why? Really---why? Those pictures are just so adorable. You will love those even more as time goes on. Honestly, they would be so cute framed in a collage for Father's Day. I love them!

Congrats!!! Thankfully we don't have hunting in our family! I would also get very lonely!

Lori said...

It will be so awesome with a little girl around! :)
