New Years Day is Goose Hunting!

We started 2009 off with a BANG! While it was still dark outside, Paco joined his Daddy, Granddad, Uncle Larry, Uncle Mahlon and cousins Erik and Brady for the annual New Year's Day goose hunting expedition!

Paco spent the night with my parents and Dad said that when he woke him this morning with the words, "Do you want to go goose hunting?" The kid bounded out of bed like he had been touched by the hot shot!!!

Here is our little hunter, all decked out in his Cabelas camo:

Is he just not the cutest little hunter you've ever seen?

Paco and his new gun, ready to go get him a goose!

I don't know why Cabelas isn't calling and asking me to use this in their next catolog. The kid is a walking Cabelas ad:Here they are in the field. Can't see them? Good! That's the idea.

My little hunter just came home, all by himself. He made it 2 hours sitting in the cold rain in a muddy field. He's warming his insides with hot cocoa and is excited that we've already got 2 geese.
Tonight, we will have our annual Javanese; which we do on New Year's. I can't wait!

    How cute is that, you need to send those pictures to Cabela's website!!

  2. Joy ~ I just read through some of your most recent posts. I love the list of questions for Mary! It reminded me of that song "Mary Did You Know". Do you know the one I mean? One line always stands out "...when you kissed your little baby you kissed the face of God..." Can you even imagine? Anyway, I just wanted to say that I've loved checking in with you tonight. Your little boy is SO very cute! Happy New Year.
