Can you say "Slacker"?

gosh I can't believe how terrible I have been lately at putting up new posts! I've been meaning to for forever, but just can't find the time to do it. But here's a little something....just a few things....Phil had his birthday September 17th, he turned 25 this year! He's now a 1/4 of a century old! haha! I was going to throw a big bash for him, but was still pretty worn out from Wyatt's party that I decided not to, I felt bad, but what can you do right? Anyway, for his birthday he wanted to go cut wood??? I don't know what kind of wierdo I married, but he wanted to cut wood, so whatever floats his boat right? Wyatt and I had fun watching him and Phil just had a blast, I think he feels like a manly man when he uses his chain saw or something, who knows? :) So that was that.....what else.....oh Janae threw Heath a surprise birthday party, what a good wife, unlike myself, which was a ton of fun! Heath is soo spoiled! jk!
Ummm....We had the Fall gathering this past weekend with Phil's family which was a blast! Sorry I didn't take any pictures, Phil took the camera hunting in case he killed something. He hunted from sun up to sun down, came back at night just exhausted. Poor guy. He didn't kill anything, but he's real good about getting over things and moving on with his life, that's one of the many things I love about him! Anyway, the festivities this weekend included: badmitton (I love that game), ping pong (again, another favorite), going on a hayride to look at leaves (Well, Wyatt was sleeping when they went, so we didn't go, but everyone else did and they said the leaves were beautiful), eating lots of food, playing cards, sitting by the campfire, roasting some mallows, it was a ton of fun! Thanks Aunt Bev and Uncle Dave for putting this on again and for all you do! :)
Let's see what else....oh I have a genius idea for a song! Well, you probably wouldn't call it genius, but I feel really good about it cause it just hit me really hard one night and the words just started coming to me. Anyway, it's going to be about our Heavenly Father forgiving us for our sins as many countless times as he does, but how forgiving ourselves and letting go of those sins is just as important! It's going to be called "Let Go" of course, and just to give you a sneak preview of some of the words I've come up with....

Let go of your sins, let go of your fears
For you are forgiven, wipe away your tears
Release your burdens, remember no more
But remember your Savior and what he died for
You have been forgiven my child you know, now Let Go!

Anyway, I'm always open to any criticism and new ideas so tell me what you think! :) if you like it, hate it, needs some major help, any of the above, I'm open to it all!

Elk Bugling in ????

Yes, finally a new update, sorry everybody. Phil and I a couple weekends ago went to ???? (sorry my husband doesn't want me to disclose any information about where we went for reasons unknown to me?) and met up with his Uncle Dave and Aunt Bev to go Scouting and do some bugling. The Elk were talking like crazy! Friday night we went to bed at 9, which was nice, but was so hard to fall asleep because usually we go to bed around 10 or 11. Anyway, we had just fallen asleep, it felt like, when we heard 2 elk bugling really close to our tent. So Phil gets out and starts calling them in. It was pitch dark, so of course I stayed in the tent for fear of what else might be out there! I'm a scardey cat. Anyway, he decided he was done and got back into the tent and it felt like 3 am. Phil looked at his phone and it was only 12am! I was soo mad, cause I wasn't sleeping good at all because of all the noise. Anyway, 5 o'clock rolls around and it's time to get up, and once again, sooo mad. I'm just not a morning person at all! Anyway, this video is from that morning. It was the coolest thing ever and was totally worth getting up at 5 for! For a short moment I could see why my husband likes hunting so much, but like I said, it was only for a short moment. jk! The rest of the day we quaded around the forest, checking the spots, hiking and enjoying Mother nature. It is sooo beautiful there ??? (once again i can't tell you, sorry :) And was so much fun as always, hanging out with Uncle Dave and Aunt Bev. Thanks again! Oh yeah and might I add that everyone found an antler but me!!! Once again, sooo mad! But it really was a fun trip and I loved spending time with Phil and seeing him get so excited about it. Enjoy...
