Janae is lovin on our doggie. She is doing a poster for school about dogs, and needed a good picture of Duchess. Thought this turned out cute. This dog looks like a giant in this pic!
Janae was in a Thanksgiving program this year at school. In case you couldn't tell, she was an indian. It was quite cute and enjoyable.

We recently started attending church at Experience Life. The 2nd week we were there, this video was played. Tim is one of the pastors there.
As we sat there and watched it, it dawned on me that Paula Beal was Hunter's substitute teacher last year whenever his teacher was out. I KNEW her! I had no idea any of this, and after church asked Hunter if he knew Jayken. Hunter said yes, and started telling me all about Jayken's heart.
I was amazed, and let me tell you, it's hard not to get teary during this. I think God showed it to us at the right time, of course, we've had a difficult summer in just not knowing what was going to happen to us financially due to Emily moving to Midland. To quote Paula, "if you can trust God with your eternity, can't you trust him with your now?" That just screamed at John and me! Okay, Lord, we hear you! It's ten minutes long, but well worth your time. If you haven't heard the whole song, listen to it, it's on U-tube as well!

Guess it was time to come out!

Some of their animals will never be able to be released back into the wild, they wouldn't be able to survive, mainly due to physical problems. Some wouldn't be able to hunt, and some wouldn't be able to defend themselves. So, they've been at the center awhile, some for years.
This is a bobcat....
A brand new baby bird....
And, I bet nobody can guess what this is!!! tee, hee
Barn owls....we cleaned this cage out, it was pretty gross. It hadn't been cleaned in about a month because these two owls had babies in there, and you can't clean it with babies in there. The parents are so protective, they will attack anybody coming in. I will just say that the birds manage to drop part of their meals all over the floor, and what do barn owls eat?? Certain little rodents, whose body parts were all over the floor. I'll say it for you.....ewwww!!!!!!!!!!!
Now these barn owls had babies. The lady showing us around opened up the door so we could see, and my goodness, those things hiss like snakes. It is amazingly loud, and let me tell you, if I walked into somebody's barn and heard that, I would certainly run the other way. Literally. She said that barn owls are federally protected, and there is a waiting list of farmers wanting the birds. She said they are a farmer's best friend. Brooke, maybe you should look into this for your snake problem. Seriously.
And a fawn. The paper actually had an article about this fawn the day we were there. It had been kidnapped from the "wild", somewhat accidentally, and brought to the center. Apparently, mama deer leave their fawns, and only check on them a couple times of day, and someone found it by itself, and thought it had been deserted. So, anyway, the "center lady" said that if it's in good health, and well fed, then it probably was fine and should have been left. I can't tell you how sorry I feel for mama deer. Came to check on baby, and it was gone. Anyway, this baby will be released back out when it gets big enough to live on it's own.

It drives me absolutely nuts that it doesn't update on everyone else's blog when I'm private. So bring on the comments, I'm back!
Make sense?? I didn't think so! ha, ha
We left in the 5th inning, the kids were getting bored, and the score was 11-2, with the Rangers winning. I hated to leave, it was absolutely a perfect evening to go to a ball game. No wind, no bugs, and it was great temperature wise out there.
Tweety and Bugs...
I have to say that Thursday was the perfect day to go. We didn't wait for any ride more than about 5 minutes. What a change from 3 years ago when we went to Disneyland, and would wait for over an hour for every single ride. Starting to re-think Disney World!!
Friday we went to the Ft. Worth Zoo. We hadn't been there since Hunter was a baby. It was really enjoyable. Took tons of pictures, love the beautiful, colorful birds. Isn't it amazing what colors God came up with?? During creation, all these colors and animals were made. A simple thing like going to the zoo, and seeing all the colorful macaws just really brings me back to the amazing creation of God Almighty. These birds definately like each other!! wink,wink Just beautiful.
Glad we didn't have to use this as our transportation coming home! Thankfully, no car sickness on the way home....bought a bottle with 100 pills in it for poor Hunt! Gonna keep it close when it's time to travel. I'm wondering if it might have something to do with his history of ear trouble. Inner ear and all....??? In my mind it makes perfect sense.

No help here, but lots of moral support.
More moral support. They were quite concerned that the hole was for them at first, because we didn't actually have the tree while we were digging. However, I have a wonderful brother who does have a pick-up and let me borrow it to go get the tree this afternoon.
