Happy Birthday, Maya!

Today our baby turns 5... it is so hard to believe how fast you have grown!

You are sweet and beautiful inside and out and you have been through a lot this year.

Actually, you've been through more in your first five years than many people 10 times your age. I am so proud of what a strong person you have become.

You love the beach and love to sing and dance and will do so just about anywhere you go. Your favorite color is still purple, and your hippo is never far away.

You love your brother and sister, and our Dixie. Sometimes you love her a little too much!

Thank you for being you... smart and sassy and so full of life! We love you more than you will ever know!

back in the swing...

The day after Christmas, we headed to West Texas for a week to do a little hunting (and reading & sleeping if you're me, ha!) We got back from Marfa around 6 last night... it was a really fun trip! The girls got an ipod touch for Christmas, so I thought I would show you Marfa through their eyes...

We also had some very successful hunts...

Our friends Mark and Ronnie Barber took these giant bucks

and I shot this OLD 10 point that was pushing around a younger deer with better genetics... and we got a cape for Parker's mount, so it worked out nicely!

Now back to reality!
