More Hunting

We headed to the deer lease this weekend to get some hunting done before Christmas!  


Of course, we take our electronics to the deer blind...


Madison joined us in the blind....the girls were laying on the floor & Madison quickly fell asleep.


Cheney shot this spike....all by himself with no help from his dad.  He sighted it in and had a good, clean shot.  I am happy that he is happy!

Santa at Morgan's Wonderland

This past weekend,we went to visit Santa at Morgan's Wonderland.  Morgan's Wonderland is a children's park made for all children but especially for handicap children.  It was a really, really a fun place to visit!


Cheney asked Santa for a mountain bike & Chan asked Santa for a princess scooter.


After visiting Santa, we enjoyed all the fun stuff at the park....Chan had a blast on the merry go round!


The petting zoo was super cool too!


After playing for a while, we took a train ride around the entire park!


To end the night, we did a little fishing in the pond.  

Morgan's Wonderland is a special place to visit & we are looking forward to going back.

Tang Soo Do Belt Test

Cheney has been steadily moving up at karate....Saturday he tested for his next stripe on his green belt.   He had to demonstrate his skills and break a board with his foot.


It took a couple of tries but he broke the board!!


Getting his belt will be red & he will test for that around July/August.  After the red belt, he works on getting his black belt....he should be getting his black belt when he is about 14 or so.  CRAZY!!


These 3 boys started karate about the same time so they frequently test together.  Cheney sure has learned a lot about discipline and hard work through karate.  We are very proud of him!!

2012 Holiday Stroll

Every year, the high school dance team teaches the elementary kids a dance to perform at the Holiday Stroll event in downtown Seguin.  They call them the "Weesteppers."  Chan loves learning from the big Starsteppers.


This is the group from Jefferson along with the Starsteppers that came to their school to teach the dance.  


Hawes & Stephenson kids....we love this family!!  Cheney & Micayla have been together since they were born.  I love that we have a great family to hang out with!!


Chan's best friend, Ily.....what cuties!!

This is Chad, Cheney (parliamentarian), Cole (vice president), and RJ (president).  Cole and RJ are Cheney's best buds!!  

The parade is always pretty with all the lighted floats!!

Hunting With Our Family Is The Best!

When we are at the deer lease, the whole family goes out for the evening hunt.  So about 3 pm each day, we pack up our noisiest snacks and head out.  


The kids love to ride on the top of the "station wagon."


Chan hasn't really been interested in shooting anything until this year.....this year, she was determined to shoot a hog.  She did!!  She is very proud of herself.  I think her Daddy is proud too.


This thing was huge....she wasn't really excited about touching it though.

Hunting Fun

After Thanksgiving dinner, we headed to the deer lease....this has become a yearly tradition to spend the weekend here.  It is great family time!!


Cheney & Daddy always get up really early to hunt....Cheney loves the time he spends in the deer blind with his Daddy.  I don't really like him holding this big gun but he knows how to handle it properly.  


Chandler has been learning about sighting her target & today she shot a wild pig.  She was very excited but she does not want to shoot a deer!! 

More deer lease excitement to come!!

Halloween Evening

After everyone got home from school, we got our costumes on & headed out for some fun!!

1st stop was MaMa & Pop Stephenson's house....they always have special treats for us.


After we visited with them for a little while, we headed to Hillcrest Church for the Harvest Festival.  Our joined their church for some fun!!  


Micayla was a Go-Go Dancer, Chan was a cheerleader, & Cheney wore his "blue thing" costume....we aren't sure what to call him.


This is Cheney & his friend, Lily.....I thought it was funny that he was a blue M & M & he was a blue thing.  I think he kinda likes her, but will only admit it sometimes.


After we got home, Chan investigated her LOOT!!

We had a great time this time for it to get cooler!!

This season has been fun for the Matadors....we are actually in playoff contention!!  So fun when we win!!

The Hangout

While we were on vacation, we went to a restaurant that several people recommended.  It was called "The Hangout."  We had so much fun there.....there are games to play & live music at night.  



This was our dessert....YES!  Dessert!!  It was cake made to look like a cheeseburger and fries that tasted like funnel cake.  YUMMY!!
