One of the many Thanksgiving activities was hunting elk.
My dad and older brother Paul both had tags for a cow elk.

So, off they went into the snow covered mountains of Big Canyon.

Bang! Bang!
They both got one.
Now comes the task of getting them off of the mountain.

Everyone had a great time and came home tired and hungry!
Always nice to have a successful (and fun) hunt.

Everyone had finished school.
Caleb and Hudson were helping Brian with outdoor projects.
Everyone else was reading.
A quiet afternoon.

Brian came to the house.
He calmly asked, "Did you have plans to go to the ER today?"
I said, "No. That is not on my list."
(yes, I am a list person)
I looked at him, top to bottom looking for a lost limb or blood pouring out.
He said, "I am fine."
Then Hudson came walking in.
I looked at him looking for blood.
He said, "It's not me. It's Caleb."

"Oh Dear! What happened?" I asked.
"We were driving t-posts in the ground for the snow fence. Caleb brought the post hole driver down on his head instead of the t-post. He needs stitches." 

Off to the ER we went!
Of course, on the way there, Caleb was saying, "Mom - - you and Dad are making a bigger deal out of this than necessary. It's not that bad. I will be fine."
The Dr. had a different opinion.
A few shots of numbing and 8 staples later we were headed home.
