Meat for the Winter

Cameron woke up this morning at 4:20 to go to a friend's ranch in San Antonio to hunt. He got back at 12:30 with this:

In Montana, the rack of the buck he killed would be said to be a 2x3, but here in Texas, they apparently call it a 7.

In any case, we got a lot of good meat from it to last us all winter:

Alegria was apprehensive about the meat, not knowing what to think of it, just knowing it was new and different...

...and I guess a little scary!

Don't worry, we only did it that once.

Alegria did, however, stay inside the house the whole time Daddy was out getting things prepped in the garage. It was pretty funny since she's always so eager to go to the garage. :)

Here's Cameron getting the freezer plugged in and ready to store the meat (I know, I's supposed to be a Christmas present, but it's also necessary for us to store the meat, so it will have to be opened early! The garage door opener, though, that one we've already got under the tree ready to be opened and installed on Christmas day!):

We had to go back out to Wal-Mart again this evening to pick up some freezer paper to package the meat in, so off we went. Alegria was so cute, playing in the cart:

And that was our day. I can't believe we're already done with three out of four days of Cameron's long weekend off of work! Boy, does time fly when you're having fun!!!

Good night!!! :)
