For all of you former BYU friends, if you havent heard, there was a fire in the Provo Tabernacle early this morning. It nearly burned the whole thing down. The walls are still intact, but the roof collapsed, which means the inside is probably completely torched as well.
Sid and I got to go to the Nutcracker! We dressed up and made a big to do about it. It was so fun and she LOVED watching all the pretty girls dancing. It was sad though, because the day before, I found out that she thought that she would be dancing on stage, and when I told her she wasn't she started sobbing huge, heart wrenching tears. She got over it the next day and was happy to watch, thank goodness.
This is after? Can you tell she's tired?
This one's just for kicks. Doesn't this remind you of the pic when I was little Mom? He just needs a gun in his hand. (Nate absolutely loves the vest and still thinks you should put it into production)
Owen had two funny incidents yesterday. He is a funny boy, but not usually because of the funny things that he says.
Background: We have a 6'8" phathead of Lebron on Tanner's bedroom wall. The kids call him Bron Bron.
Telisha: "Owen, your such a man."
Owen: "No I'm not."
Telisha: "Why not?"
Owen: "Because I dont have grass."
Telisha: "What do you mean, grass?"
Owen: "Like Dad has grass on his belly. Bron Bron is a man too, huh."
Telisha and Nate: (Laughing)
Background: Owen is talking randomly but saying the word "poop" alot. Telisha asked him to stop a couple of times, but he continues.
Telisha: "Owen, what should be the consequence if you say that again?"
Sidney: "You should spank his bum."
Owen: "Mom, dont spank my bum because then I would go poop and you would get it on your hands."
Telisha and Nate: (Laughing)
Nate's 1st kill. We became friends with some people in our ward and found out that they have some land with deer on it. Ever since, Nate has been desperate to go hunting for the 1st time. If you want the whole story you'll have to call....
The kids thought that it was the coolest thing that dad killed something that they get to eat later.
Skinning it.....(Nate had a final, so I got to do the lovely job all by myself. Sidney got a kick out of taking pics of the whole thing and really wanted to get some gloves on and help me pull off the "skin."
Processing it.....(i.e. cutting it into roasts, steaks, and stew meat.)
Done and freezer full.
My kill. Yes, the whole family was there. Well Nate and the kids were watching movies in the car while I was hunting and came out after I shot it. Sidney wanted to stay and watch while we gutted it, and what do you say to that? So we let her and she was enthralled by the process, asked lots of questions and never squirmed once. It was so funny to watch her, she loved it. (Also understand that I grew up going hunting w/ my dad and have gotten one other deer when I was younger. So, this isn't all that foreign to me. Nate's the novice. hehe)
Sidney says that Nate got the "mom deer" and that I got the "kid deer." She's pretty much right :) Nate's was bigger. That darn buck is still out there and Sidney thinks that Nate needs to go out there to kill the "dad deer." He'll have one more chance in 2 weeks......
When I was skinning this one the slug from the shotgun fell right out! Crazy! It was all quite an adventure.
