We did get to see Ross' grandparents, his aunt Sherry, cousin Emily, and her son Marty. Aunt Sherry sent me some pictures and I tried to post them but they turned out so small you could not see who was in the picture. Shelby was asleep when we got to aunt Sherry's house. We layed Shelby on the floor next to Marty and he patted her leg and woke her up. We set Shelby and Marty in front of each other and Shelby smiled from ear to ear at him. She likes her cousin Marty. Below are some pictures from this weekend.
There is a story behind this picture. It looks like Shelby is loving on her doll. That is what I thought too. She was talking really loud and her "talking" got more on more frustrated. I took the doll away and her thumb went immediately in her mouth. She was frustrated that the doll was keeping her thumb out of her mouth.

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and I'm pretty sure I need a vacation from my vacation. We started the holidays off at the cabin in Ellinger for a Thanksgiving dinner that could have fed an army. Good food and good company was had by all.
On Friday, David and I headed west to Sierra Blanca where we met up with Papa Crockett (Kim's Grandfather) and two of his friends to hunt some very elusive mule deer. We went to hunt deer, but we definitely spent more time watching the weather than anything else. Four to five inches of snow to be exact. It started snowing about 10 am on Saturday and, baring a couple of short breaks, it kept snowing until Sunday morning at 9 am or so. We had a lot of fun watching the weather, riding in the snow, playing some dominoes, and eating to our hearts content. We didn't shoot anything, but we did have a good time and here are some pictures to prove it.
This was Sunday morning when we got up to hunt

Sunday morning we braved the snow in our four wheelers and Kim told me later that she heard I was hot dogging in the snow.
It was pretty fun.

This is on top of the highest road on the ranch. It is a pretty hairy drive down especially in the snow. Twice I started gaining speed even though I had the brakes locked.
This video is when the snow started falling and the building that I pan to is where David and I slept. It is a cozy bungalow built into the side of a hill.

I am lucky that Kim's grandfather is as big of a hunter as I am and her dad doesn't mind me tagging along when they go hunting. We left at noon on Friday to go to Sonora where Papa Crockett has a ranch that has whitetail, Texas dall sheep, and turkey. We had a blast getting out in the boonies and having our hunting camp conversations. On Sunday morning before we left, I tagged this old ram that decided to eat the wrong corn at the wrong time. I have told a few people I would post pictures for people to see. For those of you that don't care for this stuff, suck it up, because it is hunting season and there WILL be more to come.
By the way Shelby and Kim are doing great; she really is "Growing like a weed".
