Phillip finally got the deer he's been hunting for a couple of years! He is so pumped! Personally, I'm still trying to come around to the whole killingasweetinnocentanimal thing... but I sure do like the sausage and I love my husband, and he loves to hunt... so it just kinda works out. I could NEVER in a million years shoot a deer, heck, I can't even kill a fly, no seriously, I catch them and release them outside! BUT, since moving to the country, I've learned to kill scorpions. I don't like it one bit, but I'll do anything to protect my kids. At any rate,  I definitely prefer taking pictures of my little Rudolph over a bloody deer any day, but here you go! One very cute little deer and one very nice buck!

This is the strongest man I know. He is Popo, Phillip's grandfather. He's a jokester, hard worker, super tough, early riser, hot coffee drinker, outdoors man, known to fall asleep in his favorite chair, lover of animals, family man, man of God, a real cowboy, loves to watch bull riding and rodeos and finally a great husband to one wonderful woman, Lilo. He is currently fighting for his life. His children, Linda and Wes have been by his side, along with many other family members.  We are praying for a miracle for him. If you're the praying kind, please pray for him too.

Psalm 23:1-4
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.He makes me to lie down in green pastures;He leads me beside the still waters.He restores my soul;He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil;For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
