Hunting Season

Last Saturday our rifle hunting season ended, this hunting season we butchered a total of 8 deer.

Our first deer of the year; Zoe killed with her rifle which was a doe, five of the deer were road kills and the other two deer were from a brother in our church and another brother gave us a deer. Zoe uses a rifle, my Dad uses a rifle and bow and I shoot cross-bow.

It was a lot of fun hunting, even if I did not get a deer,  I got to see 2 deer while in the  woods, but could not get a shot at them. If you have never gone hunting you should try, it is a lot of fun.

Uncle Eddie named our butcher shop J & R, BLAZE-for our speed at butchering deer

The Caramel Cooks Are Back Again




Yesterday Melissa came to our house to make caramel popcorn with my mom. They started at 9:00am and ended at 6:00pm. First, they popped the popcorn, then they made the caramel out of brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, baking soda and vanilla it smelled very good. Then they poured it over the popcorn, then put in  the oven which even smelled better. After cooling it was put in a bowl to cool. After it was cooled it was put in zip lock bags or in small bags which were labeled. They worked very hard and had a lot of fun…50 pounds of caramel popcorn. 


Making Gingerbread Houses

On Thursday we had a Keepers meeting at Sister Susan’s house we were to make a gingerbread house. We used a gold fish box for the foundation, and honey grahams to cover the gold fish box. The candy we used was gum drops, mints that were green and red, sprinkles, M&M and little candy canes.


                                                            It was a lot of fun.
