Yesterday was Westley's birthday!!! We started off with breakfast with his parents since the day before his was his dads and we were gone. Did some laundry (from our trip) and got our house back together and then headed to mom's for chili, cake, presents, and football! He wanted a cookie cake...good choice!
Our little family!
Hemi's gift to his dad...ha
Wes and I getting ready to dig into the gifts.
Man that's A LOT of candles...31 to be exact!!!
We had a pretty good and relaxing day...back to the grind today after a great holiday at the beach. Then tonight we're having dinner with some friends to continue the celebration.
I let Wes open a few gifts a little early this year, hope I don't turn into mom...(she ALWAYS gives everyone their gifts early and she can't keep a secret, ha) BUT...he needed his under armour stuff early to go hunting so I gave in!
He loved them and thought he looked pretty cute too, ha!!!
The dogs "watched" while he got all of his gear on and everything laid out for an early morning.
Wes all dressed and ready to head to the deer stands! (this was actually the night before) They had breakfast at 4:30 because they had to be in their stand by 5:30...woooo dog, that's EARLY!
Granny got a LARGE 8 pt that morning but everyone else passed up on theirs. Wes didn't see anything in the am but he had better luck in the afternoon. He got his first deer ever...a nice 8 pt buck. He was pretty stinking excited!!!
And so was I...it was only his 2nd time in a deer stand so this was pretty good for his first deer!
Terry got a big buck too at dark lastnight! Dave got a nice doe that I don't have a picture of...sorry!
Little miss went on her first deer retrival trip lastnight. She was wide eyed and bushy tail (no pun intended) checking out the whole scene.
I did it!!! I put my tree up...I couldn't stand it any longer. We normally get a real tree but I've been wanting a really good fake one and finally found one I liked at Hobby. So while Wes, Paul, and the boys went to the farm Sunday to shoot their guns mom came over to help me. He is the before...
And here is the after.... I still may get some ribbon to go around in it too. (I used my originally ribbon for the back of my chairs)
