Yep, it is that time of year again! The time of year that Aaron lives for. DEER SEASON! This was the first year that he was able to take the boys out hunting with him. Josh was the first one to go out with him on Saturday afternoon. Aaron said he did really well. He asked typical Josh questions like, "Dad, are all tree stands made out of metal?" and was able to sit still for longer than 5 minutes. They did see some deer but none of them were "shootable". Whatever that means???
Jake went out with Aaron on Sunday morning. Let's just say that Jake is not cut out for deer hunting. We all know that Jake has the attention span of a gnat and his mouth never stops moving. Jake was not born with a "quiet" button. He is either LOUD or well.....LOUD. He really likes hunting but hasn't quite figured out that he has to sit still and be quiet. They had a deer come right next to their tree stand and Aaron tapped him on the shoulder to let him know that there was a deer down there and Jake turned his head as fast as he could and yelled.......WHERE!! Needless to say they didn't come home with a deer on Saturday morning. LOL!

For months now Aaron has been begging me to get the laptop off of the kitchen counter so I thought that was a perfectly good reason to go to Target and buy the desk I wanted for $130. NOT!!! He was no-way no-how going to go for that so I started stalking craigslist (I hold this desk fully responsible for my now craigslist addiction) and found this little guy for only $10.
It has some great bones but needed a little facelift. I sanded it really well and covered all the scratches and dents with wood putty.
I decided to paint it black and I used Behr paint and primer in one in Forever Black. I told the salesperson at Home Depot that it goes against all of my being to not prime first but let me tell you, this paint is the Bomb-diggity!!! My desk has found a home in my dining room. Here is the after......
Isn't it Purdy?!?!?!
1 quart of paint-$14
Knob-88 cents a piece
Grand total= $30.16
