Hey Guys - Check out this Rack!

We went antler hunting today in search of a few Muley sheds. But instead - this is what we found! (Actually, Kim found them, but it was a family affair:) Mike thinks this elk rack would score between 320-330. Each of the kids found a deer shed, and Mike found 4 hard whites. It was definitely a fun, productive hunt!

Katie's First Soccer Game

Today was Katie's first soccer game! We were all a little nervous about it, since they had only had 2 practices and only one person on Katie's team had played before, but they did great. The kids all worked together really well, and Katie's team won 8-4 (with Katie scoring 3 of the goals:) She's a natural - just like her Uncle Mike!

Meet Mr. Puffy

Here's the picture that I was hoping to share with you - Mr. Puffy (who is actually doing much better today). Mike is still taking pain meds, but not very often - and he is planning on working tonight. You just can't keep a good man down!

Sick and Puffy

Actually, I've been the sick one. For the last 1 1/2 weeks I've had that lovely (heavy sarcasm here) upper respiratory stuff that included my ears. My right ear, after 8 ear surgeries, doesn't take kindly to any kind of illness - and it protested greatly, in the form of extreme dizziness (no rude comments, please:) and intense pressure and pain. But, as of today, I am feeling MUCH better, and can even function at almost normal capacity. Which is a very good thing considering my dear husband - who is, consequently, the "Puffy One" - had all four of his wisdom teeth out this morning, and is functioning at a decided subnormal capacity. Truth be told, he is crashed out, in a propped position, on our bed. If he will let me, I'll get a picture of him and post it later. Stay tuned...

More Remodeling!

On Mike's last days off, he switched out our exterior door in the Living Room (not painted yet - too cold), trimmed around the doors and windows, and put baseboard down. Here are the fruits of my wonderful, hard-working husband's labors. He is DEFINITELY a keeper;)

Our Newest Addition

Mike has wanted an antler chandelier in the den for a longgggg time. Now, thanks to our wonderful neighbor Chris, that dream has become a reality. Of course, Mike did find all the antlers (Mule deer), and he drilled them, and purchased all the material. But Chris did what we could not - he created a masterpiece. (And all for the price of a few meals - now that we can afford!)

What Does Hunter Do?


I've had several people ask me what Hunter does when Katie and I are having school. Here are a few shots of Hunter doing some of those things:)
