Happy Birthday Daddy!

Well, this is a month late, as Darren's birthday is January 19. Dean wanted me to put a skid steer on his cake, and KatieLynn wanted our family; Dean's compromise was for Daddy to be driving the skid steer, with the three of us being loaded in the bucket. I wasn't sure of my ability to draw the skid steer, and I knew I couldn't draw us! though when I look at my deer, I don't know if it's any better! This year Darren shot a 10 point, no brow tine cull buck, so that's what I attempted... at any rate it tasted delicious!

For Christmas, Darren got us horses! Really, he got Sweetie (the whitish one) for us, but we had to take Mariah (the reddish one) as well. Sweetie is a true sweetheart, but Mariah is too silly (wild) for us to ride.Dean is not shy about petting, loving on, and feeding the horses, but he doesn't want to ride yet. He has ridden before at county fairs... so I'm not sure what the deal is, but we're trying not to pressure him. KatieLynn however, is ready! She wants to run with her (trotting isn't enough), and she doesn't want us to lead her; she wants free reigns (which will not happen for a while!). We are all enjoying Sweetie!


better late, than never, right? hope so!!
