Happy 6th Birthday Tristen

Aunt Dawn and Uncle John in Connecticut sent this Cars game set
for Tristen's birthday. It has Checkers, Dominoes, Tic-Tac-Toe, Go Fish,
Crazy Eights, Bingo and they are learning them all with excitement.
Tristen got a child size Pogo stick from Gram and Pop in Stockton.

Where did it go?!!!

Tristen has lost his first tooth. March 8th, just 3 days before his 6th birthday. He didn't bother to tell me he was playing with it inside his mouth and then upon my realizing it was gone, he explained to me that he swallowed it by accident. I'm sad for him that he swallowed it(he was crying) but at the same time excitement just flowed out of me that my baby lost his first tooth.

Deer and Turkey Expo Bloomington,IL

We had a great time checking out all the deer. As you'll see the boys got up close with a gator and Bo was trying to be an appetizer for a bear. Those of you who view hunting videos, DVD's may recognize the man standing with Fred as Byron Ferguson. We have a DVD with Byron on it hunting along the Milk River. I saw Byron and had to get a picture of him. I wanted T&B to stand along side but they were too shy to do that for me. I took a lot of pictures that are not included in this post, I just picked out the ones most impressive to me.
Since coming home from that weekend, we've been busy in the woods hunting for antlers. Bo and I just found 2 more his afternoon. We've found a total of 7 so far and are hoping to find more soon. We saw a nice buck 2 nights ago in our hay field and he still had both sides on so we are on the lookout.
