After sleeping for so many nights, it looks like Jimmy woke up with an appetite.
Eat & Be Merry.

hunting trip 2011

On Monday evening, my boys returned home from their first hunting trip. I had visions that they would return home with some amazing pictures of their catch. However, I think picture taking was far from their minds. I'm proud to report that they returned home with what the boys were telling me was a "nub buck" (a deer that is just beginning to grow antlers). They shot it just before dark, after having sat in a deer stand for 2 hours, while Jake had to pee the whole time.
The next morning, Cameron took a shot at a huge hog approx. 300-400 lbs! By far the biggest one they had ever seen. He barely missed him, shooting just a little low but you couldn't tell from his excitement that he even missed. He said it was so foggy, cold, windy and in a heavy rain. Dusty said it was probably a good thing that he missed because it would have been a nightmare tracking that big boy.
All in all, the boys had a great time! We'll have a freezer full of deer meat and a cool white-tail skin that we got tanned for possibly making a blanket or something else cool. I'm so glad that my kids will have so many wonderful memories of time spent with their dad. Something that I feel is a rarity these days.

Jimmy attacked Caroline's hair bow container last night.
I'm thinking red is his color...even though he favors Mickey Mouse.

a busy Jimmy

It looks like Jimmy has been one busy elf at the North Pole.
For the last couple of days Jimmy has been taking it easy.

crazy Jimmy

Recently, someone sent us a couple of scratch-n-play lottery tickets. We were lucky enough to score about 10 bucks total. Not too shabby! However, it looks like Jimmy wants to keep our winnings...

Crazy Jimmy!

early Christmas...

On Saturday, our elf, Jimmy, brought back an early Christmas present from the North Pole. It's the one thing our kids have been asking for. The kids were surprised when they arrived home on Saturday evening to be greeted by Jimmy at the back door. Jimmy left arrows sending them to the direction that left the kids their early Christmas surprise (I just didn't get the picture of their surprise while it was in the box).....

Batman Smells
Robin Laid an Egg
The Batmobile Lost a Wheel
And Joker got away

Silly Jimmy!

Do you sleep Jimmy?

Looks like Jimmy had fun playing last night in Cee Cee's doll house. It also looks like he made a lady friend.

Jimmy's breakfast request

Looks like after visiting the North Pole last night, Jimmy was pretty hungry...

attack of the tree

I guess Jimmy thought it was a grand idea to wrap the Christmas tree last night.
Too bad "he" got busted by a 9 year old in the process!

hunting fever

In 2 weeks, the boys will take their first hunting trip. They are pretty pumped about the trip and Dusty and I just added to their excitement when we purchased their hunting license, Camo shirts, and jackets yesterday.

Hot chocolate anyone?
Apparently, Jimmy does during the night.
Cute cup Jimmy....only I can heart Jim.

silly Jimmy

Is Jimmy really reporting back to Santa at night?
He seems awfully busy playing jokes in the house at night.
He is so funny. It looks like he decorated the tree in Duke Basketball jerseys this time.

Now, where the heck is our tree topper at?

silly Jimmy

Looks like our elf was pretty busy last night.
After following a trail of Rapunzel's hair through the kitchen, up the stairs, and into Cee Cee's room, we found Jimmy.
He was hanging out with Rapunzel on Cee Cee's bed and he had a ball of Rapunzel's hair in his hands.
Silly Jimmy!

hair cut

Hair cut for Cee Cee?
No way!
Hair cut for Rapunzel?
After riding her bike through the house like a mad woman yesterday & getting Rapunzel's long hair caught in her wheel, Caroline decided Rapunzel's long flowing blond locks had to go.
Out came the scissors, the brush, and the leave-in-conditioner.
Rapunzel is now sporting a new and fresh look & I think Cee Cee is showing some mad skills in the beauty department.
