We're Having a BABY Today!!!!

We will be having our little baby girl today at Noon by repeat cesarean.
I will have another little hunter in my arms by this afternoon. I'm so nervous and so anxious. I feel just like when I have deer lined up in my scope and I'm about to pull the trigger. Hubby is excited about having his first daughter. I'll report in with way too many pictures to share when we return home. In case you were wondering, she does have some camo in our hospital bag. *wink*

Hurricane Ike

We did get hit by Hurricane Ike here in Pearland, TX. Fortunately our home faired pretty well considering how some of our neighbors made out. Our roof lost some shingles and we lost our back fence, but for the most part everything else is okay. We did not receive any interior damage due to water, thank God! We were praying hard that we'd all be safe and okay following the storm. We went without electricity for days running on a generator. That wasn't fun in the heat of Texas, but we survived. I might have been a tad grouchy at times being due any day now. Speaking of being due, we're scheduled for Friday, Sept. 26th to have our baby girl. We're very excited! Back to the hurricane... we're alive and well and that's all that we could ask for.

Now bring on November... I'm ready to hunt!

I received this award from Marian. She is such a sweet lady. I only wish that I will be where she is in the future years. I love her stories about hunting and her blog entries that revolve around hunting. She's just a really good person and I can't say enough good things about her. Go check her blog out when you have some time. You'll be glad you did!
I have to pick 7 of my favorite blogs and that's a hard one to do. I love all hunting bloggers and I gotta admit its hard to narrow it down to 7. I'll think on that one and come back with my choices in another entry. It gives me an excuse to blog again too since I've been such a slacker as of late.
