Its Official-my boys are hunters

Samuel killed his first deer today. He named it Molly.(I'm sorry to the real Molly and Molly Claire.) I'm not sure why he named it that.

Stephen killed a deer on Saturday. I'm afraid that my freezer will be packed full of deer meat all winter. GROSS!!!!!!

David and Daniel are still waiting for their first deer. I'm hoping(for their sakes) it comes soon. But I really don't want any more deer meat in the freezer. I will have to give it away.

I am wondering how I got to this point in my life. I was raised a city girl. I loved the mall, 2 high schools in my hometown, 4 jr highs, a choice of grocery stores, movie theaters, bowling alleys, and skating rinks and there was not a gun, real or toy, to be found in my home. I am now in a town with one high school, 1 grocery store, no movie, bowling or skating and I can't keep count of the number of guns, real or toy, that can be found in my home. How did I get here?
Oh yes, I remember! God sent me here. To serve Him, to love His people, and raise my children in this town that I love, surrounded by people I love (even though they love deer hunting and eating!) I love this small town. Thank you God for sending me here!!!

That's great. I suggest marinating the meat a long time. :-)

Hey, you better love that small town because it loves you! Even though I technically don't live there anymore :( 143!

I'm with you on that one--can't stand the stuff. Thankfully, I don't have any hunters though....

I love his face, I just worry about that head blowing up! :) He is such a fine boy.

Way to go Samuel!! Lil D went hunting with his dad yesterday, but they didn't get any. I'm going to show him Samuel's picture.

Be sure and thank Rev. Beavers for making bonifide rednecks out of my three grandsons. Samuel is an addicted "Bambi Killer". Ha !
