Biggest Deer...

that's what Brent got this morning. The biggest deer of his life!

Since Mom has been in town, Brent has been going hunting every morning. Now, I'll tell you...I love that he has a hobby, but hearing about it ALL THE TIME gets kind of old. I used to enjoy hearing the stories, but now, I just feel bad for the deer!

Well, this morning, I got a call from Brent. I thought something was wrong. He was breathing heavy and I could automatically hear something was wrong. Instead what I got was a 40 year old man calling to say, "I had to call you. I'm shaking like a leaf. I think I just killed the biggest deer of my life." Relax. He's ok -- this is what I was telling myself. So, I gathered myself and said, "How big." Brent replied, "I don't know. I'm still up in the tree stand. I haven't even gotten down. But it's huge. OMG...he's huge."

Well, he finally got down and called me to say he's never gotten one so big. WOW...he was super excited.

So, he finally made it to work after trying to find a place to put this deer head that he thinks he is going to mount (really I ask?!). The man is still on Cloud 10! So, he finally got home and he showed me a picture...

The thing is huge. Come to find out, this might be one of the Top 5 deers ever killed with a bow in Tennessee. WOW...this is the best Christmas present Brent could have gotten!

He's taking it to his cousin's house in AL, where it will be officially scored and then entered into the record books! WOW...again! His cousins even offered to mount it for awesome is that!!!

Anyway, I am truly happy for him. The poor deer on the other hand, well...he was just in the right place at the wrong time. Poor thing. But, it made for a VERY HAPPY HUSBAND (and that is worth every story I've been told)!

Congratulations to my hubby. I'm so happy for him!

Beautifully Blessed and Truly Thankful to have a very happy husband,

PS...Poor Peyton had to ride all the way to Florence, AL in the backseat of the car next to this deer head...gross!
