We took JC's deer and ground it up into hamburger. We went to WalMart and bought a meat grinder (which I highly recommend) and ground most of the meat up. I think we will eat more of it if it is ground into hamburger and maybe we could do half-and-half. Anyways, the kids absolutely loved doing it and that's what matters most, right?

Gavin too worried about saying 'cheese' to hold up the meat!
JC went hunting this weekend with his best friend from high school, TC Fish. They had a group of 7 people that went. They had a complete blast. JC was so excited to shoot a deer (much to my dismay). But hey, I guess I have to take the good and the bad that comes with my dear husbands hobbies!!! THANKS TC for putting up with JC and letting him tag along on the hunting trip ;)
So we decided to write down our family and personal goals. It's funny how differently men and women think!! GOTTA LOVE IT. Most of our family goals are already in place but we just want to emphasize the importance of them.

This weekend we had a Bryant Family Reunion at Sharp Creek near Payson. We had so much fun and a great turn out from the family. We played hillbilly horseshoes, hiked, ATE, updated everyone on life events, played cards, etc. We had a complete blast. Definitely makes me appreciate family and helps me realize how important they are in my life. I LOVE MY FAMILY!!!
