Archery Woman!

My New Hobby!!

So...about 3 weeks ago, I mentioned to Cameron that I would like to learn how to shoot a Bow. Just to see if I like it, and then maybe we could get me one. Well, apparently he was super excited because he took me to Cabelas and bought me one. It's awesome! And PINK!! We took it to Humphrey's Archery and got it all set up and got my arrows and everything. My draw length is 27 and Cameron's is 29. So I guess that means I have long arms. And the draw weight is at 40lbs. So it takes a lot of effort to pull it back. I have to laugh because I have been after Cameron to fix our shower for about 9 months, and he keeps putting off, but when I say I want a bow, he buys it 5 days later! I swear he wants me to be like Tiffany on a hunting show called The Crush with Lee and Tiffany.

So Cameron set up some targets in our basement so I could practice and get comfortable with it. So I have been shooting down there, and we went to Ibohunt last Saturday and shot. It was way fun, except that I whipped my arm pretty good and got a big old bruise! But it really is a lot of fun. I can't wait to shoot a deer with it!

Boyfriends Already?

Well...we have had a little bit of teenage drama with Lexi the last little while. Ever since she started school in September she has had a little crush on a boy in her class. She talks about him all the time and just gets this grin on her face. Well in about November, Ms. Katie had to tell me that Lexi got in trouble for locking 3 boys in the bathroom and not letting them leave until they kissed her! I don't know where she got that idea! Well, I guess her and this boy decided to be boyfriend/girlfriend. And Lexi had to yell at another little girl who sat by her man! So they other day I went to pick her up from school, and this little boy came and asked me to get him an invitation for her bday party, because he doesn't know when it is or where we live. So she had invited him to her party, which I am not mistaken shouldn't be til June! But when I picked her up the other day she told me that they broke up. And when I asked her why, she told me that she told Porter, that he needed to go home and tell his mom that she would never see him again, because if they get married, he needs to come live with us! Oh my goodness, this has already started, what am I gonna do when she is 14?

So that was the update on is the update for Quinn...

She is 14 months, and she weighs 18 lbs. So that puts her in the 5th percentile. I was reading older posts, and when she was 6 months, she was in the 30th, so that has dropped pretty bad. But she eats, so I don't know what to do. Since her surgery, she acts like a totally different kid. She wants to sit and play all the time. Her 1st word was Baby. And her 2nd was deer. She is so funny. She has started to pull herself up to the couch, so I think that she should start walking soon. She is so full of energy and look out if she doesn't get what she wants. She has an attitude!!
