One of my most favorite Christmas gifts this year is THE Adam Lambert cd!!! My sister in law Melly gave it to me.. and I was so shocked. I know I act like a school girl when I swoon over Adam, but hey.. Im allowed.. apparently{Ive read} that he has a huge following of middle aged women. Well hell yeah.. count me in! hehee.
Anyway.. I got to listen to all but 2 songs on the cd yesterday on the way home from Fulton. I loved it.. Even Todd liked it and said that he reminded him of Freddie Mercury from Queen.. Im like well duh!!!! ;) .. I just love him, and altho this is not my favorite from the cd it is the only "official" one I could find on youtube today. Enjoy!!!! ;)

A Moment to Breathe~

So how are you bloggy world? I am taking a break at work and blogging. I was thinking this morning of how I used to blog.. just blog about any old thing, not worrying about content or anything like that. I would just spill it... write about what I was thinking without a care who would be reading it. After all, this is my blog and my personal journal. But I guess my thinking on that has kind of changed to catering to an audience that would like to read what I have to say. hahaa At least I feel that I am more conscious now. Maybe not. But I would kind of like to get back to my old way of blogging.. if you dont mind. If I offend anyone, believe me it is not intentional. :)

ok, so onto other stuff and updates. So, on the 4th of December Todd went to Outpatient Surgery to have a cyst removed from his face. He has teased that it was his twin growing in there.. and apparently it was pretty big. He had to have a Plastic Surgeon remove it. It was a minor procedure but still surgery ya know. I went with him.. and there is nothing like sitting in a hospital waiting room that will make you count your blessings, thats for sure! Everything turned out ok for the ol' fella so that was good!

Later that day we packed up and headed back home to visit with my brother Neal who was leaving for Hawaii. We leisurely made our way back home, not before stopping to get a bite to eat and at the restaurant ended up with Hunter getting his hands burned while washing them in the bathroom... the water was THAT hot. Of course we reported it to the manager but come on.. poor thing. It didnt blister thank goodeness, but the pain... we all know that feeling! :( We got him all fixed up to go out to the truck and uhohhhhh.. I thought I had locked the keys in the truck.. wow did Todd get mad. Seriously though, I didnt .. damn new purse! hahaa! So, we are back on the road.. get back home and meet up with Rachel-Prestons girlfriend.

She had been so kind to go and pick up the boxes that we were going to fill with goodies for 2 soldiers over in Afghanistan. We got the boxes and took out shopping. We really got a cool list to go off of and got quite a few things. We then ran out to Dads and packed the boxes, while packing discovered that we needed to buy even more to put in there.. Lord knows I wasnt going to skimp on these packages! They needed to be chalk full!!! So we ended up waiting for Preston to get off work, picked up Justice and Rachel and all headed out to eat dinner and shop for more goodies. We got back to the country, packed the boxes, made the cards and wrote letters to the soldiers and watched a movie.

The next morning we all got up and got ready, drove over to Columbia to have breakfast with Neal and Karen .. they wanted us to visit some more afterwards so we went over to my niece Amiee new apartment and had a good goodbye visit. When we left we hurried back to Fulton so that the boys wouldnt miss the Fulton Christmas Parade. It went fast, but brought back fond memories. They filled their pockets and ours full of candy..they got donuts and sodas too..! Pretty funny for a parade I thought. Hunter saw Santa from around the corner and man was he happy! He didnt stop waving or smiling til Santa was out of sight. haha. We then went out to Dads, cleaned house and relaxed while the boys played. Later that night we ran into town and ate a bite and went to visit Daniel and his family. I FINALLY got my niece Savana to let me hold and hug her and take our pic together. All in all it was a good lil mini vacation. :)

Ok, going to give your eyes a rest and show some pics from the trip.. next up.. my visit with Mom and her husband! ... then I think I can slowly catch up on the past week! hahaa wow! :)

eta: Orrrr maybe I wont share any pics.. I cant get that darn button to work.. weird!

Deer Season~

Well, unfortunately.. Todd has not seen or got a thing this year. This is the FIRST time I think that has ever happened. He has kinda given up for this season, but talks now and then about going out, then he starts feeling guilty that we have so much going on with Christmas coming. To me, I dont care really, I just want him to be happy.

In other news, my brother Neal and my son Preston have been slaying them hard. My brother got a 16pt buck and a couple does and I think a spike. Preston has gotten an 2- 8pts and a doe. My brothers was like a horse he said.. big and strong and he had missed a chance with him once before so he was dang sure going to keep hunting until he got him! It paid off! Here he is with his prize and his description of his hunt... I am very proud!What a weekend. I was honored to host Rocky Harris opening day after all Rocky has hosted me the last 7-8 years. Saturday morning Rocky struck first taking a big 9pt then a doe and button buck. Sat afternoon 1SG Richard Banks came up from Joplin to take Rocky's now vacant spot. Richard missed a good buck and I shot a doe. Sunday morning was slow and I stalked a good 8pt but he jumped the fence onto the neighbors property and all I could do was stand there and listen to the barrage of gunfire he started. Sun evening brought SGT Mathew Farmer out to my honey hole, he promptly missed a good buck and a decent 8pt within an hour on stand. The weather was nasty about 49 degrees with winds from the northeast at around 15mph, rain showers were coming and going as I saw two decent 8pts before deciding to shoot a couple does that came out unnoticed by me from my right at about 50yds. 15minutes later my buck stepped out from the same area as the does and stopped right where I had shot the 1st doe. He didn't jump out at me as a big buck at first and I flipped my scope covers open to check the rack out, the front cover clicked on my barrel and he looked right at me. He was high but not wide and I wasn't sure he was the big deer I was after but when he cocked his head I saw his G-4 and knew he was a good ten so I clicked the safety off, he started walking and that rattled me due to me taking so much time to size him up. My shot was hurried and he was walking, I knew I hit him back and he immediately ran straight away from me. I jacked another shell in and popped another at him as he left. Once I dropped the scope away I could not see any movement or white flags waving at me so I let it settle down and slipped out to recover my deer in the am. Off to Wal-Mart to get more doe tags and a restless night sleep wondering did I blow my opportunity. SGT Jason Steel accompanied me Monday morning to again nasty weather and a stiff north wind. No deer sighted by 8am and I was ready to collect my deer. I went to the first doe I could still see from my stand, the coyotes had tore her open during the night. The second doe I was sure was right next to her was not there, so I walked down the fence line and spotted her 50yds farther down from the first doe. I then cut a straight line west to the last spot I had seen the buck heading south and walked right up to him less than 50 yds from the second doe. He grew over night, he was the deer I was hunting and had seen for a brief moment while bow hunting that same area a week earlier. His rack roughly grosses 157BC, with 14 scorable points and 2 point just shy of an inch. My Woods Custom Rifle in .260 Rem had served me well once again, with the follow up shot through the left ear that ultimately brought the big boy down. Kudos to Chris Cauley of MidwayUSA who introduced me to COR Bon 120gr Barnes copper bullets. Now it's time to pack my bags, my girls freezer is now full and I can concentrate on my move to Hawaii 14DEC09. Aloha and Good Hunting SFC Neal Overstreet

The 12 of 12 and other stuff will have to be posted tomorrow or later tonight... Ive got to do some re-arranging with the computers..... back in a bit... :)
