Alise went to the camp with her Daddy Friday night. I really didn't want them to go because we were experiencing record temps and even though Alise's stand has a heater, I just really didn't want my Baby Girl out in the cold. But of course, Daddy insisted. Wayne killed a doe and he said that he asked her if he could shoot the deer before he actually did and she said, "Yes, Daddy, yes! Shoot it! Shoot it!" Good grief! What kind of daughter am I raising? The first thing she said after Wayne shot was, "Daddy, can I go pet the deer now?" Too funny. I love her innocence.
Someone asked me this weekend how I felt about Alise hunting. I don't have a problem with her going with her Daddy and I really do hope that hunting becomes something that she enjoys doing with her Daddy in the future because I know how much Wayne loved doing it with his own Dad. We both agree that she's too young to shoot a gun (of course!) but I'm also hoping that gun safety is something that Wayne will enjoy teaching her one day, too. So I really don't have a problem with it.
While Wayne and Alise were at the camp, I got absolutely no-thing accomplished here at home! I ended up sleeping until 10:00 Saturday morning! Do you have any idea how long it's been since I've slept until 10:00 on a Saturday morning? I surprised myself, but it was oh-so nice!
The birthday parties have begun! We are SLAMMED with birthday parties this month!! We had one this afternoon at our local skating rink, but I didn't get any good pictures because it was too dark and all I had was my smaller camera.
Ms. L and EC will be back at school tomorrow from their "extra" week at Walt Disney World! Alise is SO excited to see her teacher and good friend again. We made them cards this afternoon that said, "We Miss You!"
