Sunday Best and getting ready for winter

Just wanted to show you the girls outfits from Sunday. I just thought they looked so adorable.

Yesterday we were getting ready for winter with stacking the last of our chopped wood, before the real fall and winter hit us. The girls had so much fun playing in the rain while Lucas and I worked. We've had such a wonderful Indian summer and now it's raining, a very cold rain for the last 4 days and winter is just around the corner.

I wanted you all to see how much meat we got from my moose, 58 gallon bags!!! I don't think we need to worry about lean red meat for a couple of years! God is so good.

Adrenaline Rush of a Life Time

This past week Lucas and I spent many, many hours and covered many many miles hiking around trying to find a moose for me. It was a lot of hard work as well as really exciting. We heard and saw elk, bear, deer, flying squirrels, grouse and a ton of trees. It taught me a lot about myself and how to persevere when faced with adversity.

Just enjoying the view!

An elk rub that Lucas found. Lucas couldn't even reach the top of the rub. After 5 solid days of hunting and hiking our butts off, our persistence payed off.

At 6:30 September 29, 2011 I shot this beautiful bull moose!

A "little" excited!! I have never had an adrenaline rush like that in all my life. I was hyperventilating and shaking and I couldn't control it. Packing a hind quarter (110 lbs.) to the a spot in the shade, until we came back in with stock. Riding on Tilly the mule. We packed the meat out (about 300 lbs) on a horse and mule, which was wonderful that we didn't have to pack it out on our backs.

It was an amazing, tiring week, but a wonderful experience.
