Deer Camp 11/21-11/23 :)

Hell0 there! Well its been a while since I posted because we have been so super busy! Not sure with what but we have been! This weekend was so much fun! We had planned on spending all weekend at our family farm in Oaks, OK but on Friday morning, last minute, Nate's BFF Aaron called him and watned him to go hunting with him down in Morrow, AR....needless to say, I headed off to deer camp alone! It was still sooooo much fun! It ended up being me, my brother Dalton, Aunt Dar, Uncle Mike, my cousins MiKael, Shelley and Jarrod, Jim (MiKaels husband), Brian (Shelley's husband), Kobye and Michael (Shelley and Brian's boys) and Lily Grace (MiKael and Jim's daughter)! It was a blast! Dalton and I headed over Friday night after Nate headed off. We woke up at 5:00 on Saturday morning and headed off into the deer woods. Shelley and I were posted together that morning. We didn't really have any luck but we could see Brian and Dalton sitting in the other deer stand. All the sudden, we see Brian shoot and some doe head off over the hill. We make it to them and Brian had shot a buck! We tracked it all morning and didn't find the body anywhere! We were really bummed but were excited that someone had finally got to shoot at something! We headed back in for a breakfast of chocolate gravy, biscuits, white gravy, bacon, sausage and eggs all made with love by Aunt Dar! Yummy!! It was delish! We then headed back out to the woods and heard another shot. Again, Brian was the one shooting and he hit a doe! As we were tracking his doe we also stumbled upon his buck from earlier! It ended up being a 7 point! It was so exciting! Jarrod and Shelley also shot at some coyote throughout the day but Brian was our only one to come back with the prize! We went back out this morning and Uncle Mike got a buck! Not a big one but still a buck! Dalton and I then headed home because we were EXHAUSTED! Hunting will wear you out! HAHA! Anyway, I dropped Dalton back off at my parents and then I headed home! I am sooo glad to be home and can't wait for Nathan to get back! He shot a bobcat this morning down in Morrow where they are hunting and I am soooo excited to see it and him! I have missed him sooo much! This is our first time to be apart since getting married and it is has been very weird! I am ready to see him thats for sure!

Brian and his friends!

Us Girls (MiKael, Shelley and Me) on our way out to the deer woods......our question was, why does camo always make you look so bulky??

Well I hope that everyone has a GREAT Thanksgiving week this week! We have a busy week ahead with all of our family get-togethers! I love this time of year! I am off Thursday and Friday and am soooo very thankful for it! I need the days off! We will start out Thanksgiving night with dinner at Nate's aunts house for his mom's side of the family then Thanksgiving day we will have lunch with my mom's side of the family and dinner with my Dad's side of the family! Lets just say I hope I don't come back weighing 10 lbs. more! LOL! Friday morning, Mom and I will get up at 3 AM and go out Black Friday shopping with all of the other crazy people out there! We are both soooo excited and can't wait! We usually strategize on Thanksgiving day so we know where we want to go and what we need to get! I think we do it more for the excitment of it than anything! After that, I will come back home to Nate and we will head back to the farm in Oklahoma to the deer woods with all the family again! I just love hunting season! I will post again later when I get pics of Nate's bobcat for everyone to see!

Have a great week!! :)
