The Past Week

We had a fun busy week. Grandma and Grandpa Davis came home from their mission in Arizona on a Navajo Reservation last Thursday. We got together quite a bit over the weekend. It didn't even seem like they had been gone for 18 months. It's so great to have them home! Cougar especially loved playing with his cousins and is looking forward to the time we get together again.

On Saturday, Mark went hunting with his dad and older brother Todd. Nobody got anything and they came home much earlier than expected. Mark got to come with us to Pumpkinland at a nursery in Orem. It was nice to have him around (we're kind of forgetting what's it's like to be all together at the same time.)

Phoenix had his two week check on Tuesday. He now weighs 7 pounds 11 ounces and is 21 inches long. I personally was surprised that he hadn't gained more weight. He eats just about every 2 hours, sheesh. His numbers put him in the 21st percentile for weight and head size and the 77th for length. So, just like the other boys in the house he is tall and skinny. I really don't get to fit in I've got Kindlespire genes which means short and squatty. (Thanks again, Dad) :)

And last, but not least Mark got the biggest deer of his life on Tuesday. He went back out with Gayle and it payed off. It's a three by four that he is very proud of. Cougar thought it was pretty cool. It is currently hanging up outside waiting for me to make jerky. (I don't get hunting, but I'm happy for Mark!)

I am with you there (on the hunting). Jakes deer is also in the garage waiting for me to make jerky or vacuum pack it.
