Bugging Poor Ike

Bella the Avatar!

Yes, I came into the living room to find Bella putting on some of her makeup that she had gotten for her birthday. I thought she was just putting a little blue design on her cheek. I came back into the living room a few minutes later to find her whole face BLUE! She said she just wanted to be an Avatar! Who can argue with that? Me too, Bella!

A Special Day for us...

Today was an awesome day... First, I was expecting Brad to be gone to Sheridan to hunt a bit this weekend, but he decided not to go! Yeah! I think this has been his first Saturday home in about 3 months. Then, because my handyman was home, we went to town on little projects we needed to get done around the house. We cleaned the house really well and raked leaves and put new weather stripping on our doors. We fixed some vents on the roof and put away a bunch of junk that was outside...Winterizing like crazy! Whewww.... Thanks Brad for kicking our butts in gear today!

The Good Place

So, I have many uses for the title of this post.

1. On Saturday, Brad and I needed a "good place" to find some coyotes for the tournament we were in. We found two GREAT places first thing in the morning on got two dogs by 8:30 am.

2. I thought "the good place" was sitting in the very quiet truck between coyote locations. I just got to sit in the warm truck and relax while Brad searched for the next good place to get some coyotes... No kids crying, no phones ringing, and no problems from the outside world.

3. "The Good Place" was where we finally located our 3rd 4:15pm that evening. We should have known to go there first.

4. We met up for check-in at a small little place called, Sweetwater Station. It was a "good place" to find because we were in the middle of no where...

5. And finally... We didn't place in the tournament with 3 dogs, but we did qualify for The Best of the Best tournament that is in January. And, I won a gift certificate to a little sportings good store in Lander called.... you guessed it- "The Good Place!"

Bella's Big Day!

We had a great day celebrating Bella's birthday. Believe it or not, she wanted to spend the day going hunting... She wanted to shoot something. So we got the guns and went to the shooting range and let her shoot the 22. Then...We took her to the archery range and surprised her with an early birthday present. She got a new bow. She LOVED it and couldn't wait to try it out. She does so well pulling it back and shooting it. What a fun gift for her.

Bella Turns Six!!!

We had a fun night with friends and family for Bella's birthday. She said that this was the best day ever! It made Brad and I feel good because we didn't think we did that much for her. Glad she had a good day and we are so grateful for the grownup girl she has become.

Halloween is my favorite time of year...We get to dress up, get lots of candy, and act silly. However, none of us really did that this year (except for the girls dressing up.) We all had an awful cold and daddy hurt his back so tremendously bad that he had me seriously worried. But, all in all, Halloween was fun for the girls.
