25 Days Til Christmas!

We did not get up early to go to the deer lease yesterday, but took it easy. We got there around Noon. We weren't sure we were going to be able to even get out of the truck because it was raining so hard just a few miles from there. But by the time we got to the gate, it had let up and stopped completely. Thank you for answered prayer, Lord.
Our daughter, Kim and her family were there. Mark and the boys had gathered some wood and were about to start a "manly" fire. Meaning: you douse it with gasoline.
We burnt some hot dogs and fed the fire some marshmellows. It was a great time. We just sat around and enjoyed the fire.
Then Al took Chance to sit on a field and Mark took Peyton and Jarrett to a tree stand to hunt. Mark shot a deer, but I never saw it. Al and Mark prepared the deer for the processor with a couple of the boys help.
Kim, Grant and I just stayed by the fire. Ate pumpkin bread shaped like turkeys and hearts. (Kim is an over-achiever) Talked with other friends who came to hunt. It was a perfect afternoon in the woods! No wind, just the right temperature. Good company.
I usually have to sit there by myself because most of the other ladies go hunting with there husbands. It was very nice.
Al did very well. He was tired, but nothing more than usual. We figure, if he is going to be in pain - he can at least be doing something he loves.
Today he is going to attempt to spend the day with Justin at the gun show.
Time to get that tree down and get started with the Christmas holiday season.....
