A Thankful Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!

Next to Halloween, this is probably my favorite holiday. Both have small expectations with great fun and rewards, these are my simple joys. We are going to our friends house in town for some home cooked food, drinks and hot tubbing. After MAJOR family Fletcher consternation, we decided that an 8 hour drive to Hettinger, ND in -20 to -40 degree temps on ice, for a pheasant hunt, would not be the wisest decision. Albeit, a tough decision, we had just driven this same stretch last weekend on ice, not fun!

The following pictures document our deer hunt last weekend near Ekalaka, MT. Let me say ahead of time that I did a fair amount of talking with God, given the cold weather and that I harvested a deer. This is never easy for me and takes a ton of mental preparation. Which is to say, that if I had a good shot, one that I was comfortable with, I would have to take it. This is my 5th year of deer hunting and I have only got one deer 4 years ago. So while this was a success for me, I owe it all to my husband whom is my #1 GUIDE and who ensures that all my equipment will provide for a successful hunt. This was a thrill to him too!

Our buddy Don came along
for the first time.

A nice 4x4 Whitetail buck,
still in velvet.
After a bit of research,
we call this deer a stag.

It ended quick, one shot and
I am grateful.

A Fletcher Family Tradition,

Do it when no one is looking or do it when all your friends
can do it at once.
That way, no one sees.

Halloween Recap

It is true, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays,
next to Thanksgiving.
This year, the coworkers from the
real job dressed up and we had a sporgasbord lunch
while we giggled over costumes.
Kate and I rocked some sort of '80s get-up
so we could be thematic.
As you can see from the pics below, I had
way too much fun with my makeup.

Steve as Little Red Riding Hood

On Saturday, we donned another get-up
and ventured out to the Filling Station to see
Cure for the Common, after having
jello shots, apps and other goodies at Jess' house.

Dia de los Muertos,
Me llamo Muerta,
as Flo so named me.
