Christmas Spirit

Typically we do not wear this makeup... but Madison danced this morning, and it has remained on her face. Her dance team did a great job. They did a Christmas dance today, which actually started me on the road toward Christmas Spirit..... Maybe I should get the Easter decorations put away...

The Inaugural Blog of a Hunting Widow

Well here is my first attempt at a blog. I have been inspired by reading the blog of a former co-worker who was also Madison's 2nd grade teacher. I am at home without a husband and can't find anything else to do (nevermind the 18 loads of laundry to put away or the Easter decorations that need to be boxed up to make way for Christmas decorating...)

Stan is away at his mom's house for one of his yearly deer hunting trips. This is just the weekend trip to scout for the real trip that is coming up in a few weeks. I have several friends who are hunting widows, so I know you all understand! It is really good for Stan to get away and be in the deer woods. I think it adds years back to his life. He comes home rejuvenated and rested. I just wish he'd leave his varmits where he shoots them. But then he'd expect me to leave my shoes at the mall after I purchase them. I understand!!!

I love the fall and everything about this time of the year. So I'll close with my top ten favorite things about Fall, my most FAVORITE fall picture ever, and my most favorite man doing his FAVORITE fall activity.
