Rachel's 13th!

Oh what fun... a birthday party, with a "Medieval" dress up theme. JohnD used his duiker skin from the duiker he shot - and made a quiver for his bow & arrow. Carol was AMAZING with making his "Little John" outfit. ;) Micaela went as the "milk maid" - and she won the prize! The anticipation of the party went on for weeks, so by the time Saturday moring rolled in - they were just fit to be tied!I also was very amused to see the dressing up of our little Maddie! Who says that only cats and dogs can be dressed up as princesses? You can't see it here, but Mommy is firmly tied up for all of this. After my incident with her, the kids have a healthy respect for that Mommy!

Weekend hunters...

Ivan came to visit over the weekend, and for the first time ever, the two boys went off hunting on their own! They got a few guineafowl, and a duiker!!! It took them most of the morning to skin the duiker out, and clean it all up! Needless to say, Ivan's family had guinea for dinner Sunday night!
The kids also figured out that the horses are way more cooperative in the cart than the donkeys!!! Talk about a mean speed... Somehow I think the donkey's cart days are now over.
