We went down to Devers and Evadale for Thanksgiving.
First we went to Devers. O and Mimi had all of the kids and grandkids there at the same time. Twelve kids and Hannah was the oldest. It was a little CRAZY!
Henry hanging out with the boys outside
We played some dominoes
And ate some good food
Nathan and I went with Will and Liam to try to shoot a deer at the farm. They had a big time in the buggy. We saw lots of hog tracks but no animals. Will went back the next day and got a hog.
After Devers, we went over to Evadale for a couple of days. Pop took all the boys to the deer lease. What happens at the deer lease stays at the deer lease, unless it ends up on the blog…
We did a little target practice
And Nathan got to shoot a gun for the first time
Then we sat in the blind for an evening hunt. We didn’t see much which shouldn’t be expected since we had two adults and three boys in a box blind. It started raining and we almost got stuck in a mudhole on the way back.
Pop let Nathan and me hunt in the blind in his back pasture. We hunted out there a couple of days and shot a little doe. Nathan slept through the whole thing.
This definitely got Nathan interested in hunting. We are looking for a lease for next season.
While we were hunting, the girls went to visit Memaw.
They also did some shopping and made some gingerbread houses at Aunt Margo’s.
When we got home, we took down our thankful tree.
and put up our Christmas tree.
