Silly Holli

Holli is always a treat! We laugh daily at what she does. I think that we are going to laugh even harder when she starts talking. Here are some of our favorite moments from the last week.

The other day she found the toilet paper Jess had out and turned around to find this! The demolition of the house is starting.
Holli some how got her animal on her back and was letting him take a 'ride'. If only she could crawl! She loves to be placed on the rocker and just 'chills'. Life does not get better than this.

Although Holli cannot crawl yet, she is good at pushing herself backwards, and Jess found her trapped between the table, wall, and T.V. How in the world she got back there, is still a mystery.

Holli can suspend herself on her toes and then gets upset because she can't go anywhere from that position. Since this picture she has gotten her knees under her, but gets even more upset because she seems to know that she should be mobile in this position, but can't get 'er done. She is very determined to make it work.

Hunting Craze

Well, the hunting and harvesting is done. KJ did very well this year. This here is his antelope. It is a very large 15 inch buck. He scored about 77 inches total. We are very proud of what he got. Heck, we got more meat out if it than some deer in the past! He used his good 'ol 7 short mag. I don't care what anyone says, that is a dang good gun! Now the talk is on about how to mount the animal.

Here is the buck he shot with his bow.
And here is the bull that got away last year and that he found this year! He was sad that it got away last year but relieved to know that he found it this year! TALK ABOUT HUGE!!!!
I shot a little doe this year as well. Us girls went around Norwood all dressed up in our cammo.
But by the end of the day, this little girl was all hunted out!
Earlier that day we put this bear in front of here to see what she would do. Normally she lays down with it and flops that bunny ears around. She looked at us as if to say, "Can I really play with it like this?"
OK, I will play with it.Now, you're sure that I can?YUMM! These feet taste so good.We, are just good buddies now!

Doe a deer a dead dead deer. Dad Steven and I during their muzzeloading hunt here at Norwood. Now the work really begins.
Hey, look at KJ's farmer's tan. Crazy eh!!! :)

This is a beautiful picture taken by Kj while hunting one night. No he was not hunting at night, just driving out from another day of pondering "Where the heck are all the elk".

Mom and dad would you like me to paint you a picture
Holli where on earth are you at. I can't see you. KJ with his buck in Eads. Not to shabby. Ok, he fell 3 inches short of the trophy books.

Holli, isn't it a little early to be on the bottle? There was an empty bottle laying around and Grandpa was holding Holli and she grabbed it and put it right to her mouth. So, we started her with a sippy cup and she loved it. (There was not Mountain Dew in the Sippy Cup.)
Holli is rolling everywhere now. We will walk out of the room and find her hiding in all sorts of different places!
