Well for those of you who know Hoke (enough said) he is just airing something out I guess.
All of us girls after stuffing ourselves.
Arianna, Heather and Calli ready to go for a ranger ride.
Butch and Lindsey ready to ride.
Jo and Rocky all bundled up. We really had a great time we were unsuccessful in the Hunt but what do you expect from a bunch of GIRLS.

Thanksgiving and Elk Hunt

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We (Me, Calli, Heather, And Meagan) got drawn for Bull Elk in unit 4b. That is up behind Forrest Lakes. We had a blast! not only did it rain but it snowed. We had some friends who went to help us track the big bulls. The Holyoaks and the Knights. This is were Buck and Meagan slept.
This is where Everyone else slept.(except the Holyoaks and the Knights). Thank goodness for a Trailer it has a Toilet and a shower and a Heater. Arianna went with us also to help Joleen babysit all the little kids while we were hunting. Thank you so much Arianna we couldn't have done it with you. You are the greatest!
Here is our Thanksgiving Feast. It was Fabulous. We were camping but we had a great meal with all the fixins.
Meagan keeping little Hunter warm.
This is what we woke up to Thanksgiving morning. A White Thanksgiving it was awesome.

Having fun at the Ranch

Butch and Lindsey love to go to the Ranch and play. We have a barn and they love to climb up the stairs and jump out the Hay loft to Buck. They just love running around and getting dirty.
This is a random picture of Hunter and Rocky. They are getting so big.

This is my favorite picture of Grandpa and Butch just talking and looking at everything.

Elder Leavitt

Well it has been forever since I have updated I don't know why I haven't but here is a post on our Missionary. Forrest loves being in Askov he loves the people and the Branch. He really loves being out in the country. Here he is with Elder Taylor . I got a phone call from a Sister in the Askov branch telling me that Elder Leavitt is getting transferred on Friday the 3rd. I guess a couple of Missionaries are going home early so they are closing down the Askov area and sending Elder Leavitt to Eden Prairie and Elder Hunter(who has been Elder Leavitts comp. for 1 week) some where else. So Elder Leavitt is on a new adventure. He is doing well and really enjoying teaching the Gospel. He says to tell everyone Hi! and I love you all.
Elder Leavitt says that he has seen a ton of Deer. He can't wait to go back after his Mission and hunt. Already has a couple of good tree stands staked out.

Another Boy!

Well never a dull moment. Saturday we were leaving to run some errands and saw that our Buffalo was laying down and giving birth. We thought she was pregnant but we weren't sure but I guess that proves it anyways she had a healthy bull. We haven't named it yet but are thinking about a name from Thomas the train. Butch loves Thomas. The other baby buffalo was born on Sterlings dads birthday so it is named( you guessed it Laurel). All of our animals are named either from the movie Man from Snowy River or Walker Texas Ranger except the Mules are named after my mom and dad. So we might name it Gorden, or Henry. Butch wants us to name it James.
This is it's dad giving it some nudges or love taps.
Here is Rocky getting ready to come home from the Hospital. What a cutie!

James gave G-pa a bubble gum cigar and he was being silly.
