Mom turned out home into a holiday bakery! Wednesday night she had 11 friends come over and they all brought pans, bowls and cookie sheets. They came at 4:30 and finished up around 10 that night. They each went home with around 11 dozen cookies and treats. And we came home just in time from a movie to sample and carry stuff out to cars. By the looks of it she is going to have to do this again before Christmas because the fudge will be gone!

The first couple of days of opening deer hunting are in the books! It was so cold and windy this year the deer were not out in the open at all. By dusk on Sunday we had 6 deer hanging and 2 bucks needed to fill. This year the season go until November 16Th so we have another week to get those 30 point bucks. This year Grandpa was paying cash money for bucks shot and 1st deer shot. Tanner got the first shot with putting a hole in a does ear. He couldn't of done that in a million tries. Dalton got his buck shooting one in the left but check. Tabor had to be a big show off again getting 2 does. We did get to enjoy a lot of mother natures beauty Tamara should have left the gun and carried the camera. We found a tree on the 40 that had more pheasants in it than our apple tree had apples. That was a sight to see them all fly out!

We celebrated Khloe's baptism on Sunday at St.Edwards in Minneota,MN. She slept during the whole mass. Khloe wore the same baptismal dress that Tamara and Auntie Cherrie wore at baptism some 39 years ago. The boyz seem to enjoy holding her and they are always messing with all that long black hair. We are pretty sure Tabor can do a good Khloe impersonation with the lips what do you think?

Oh man we are 0-2 for our favorite teams this weekend. We took QB1 with us to the Xcel Center on Saturday night to watch our Mavericks against the Gophers. They say things happen in groups of 3 so this could only mean that the Vikes are going to loose.

All good things must come to an end and so did our 08 season of football
The Raiders found it very hard to make something happen with the passing game. This young Raider team found themselves needing a freshmen to QB the team for the last two weeks of the season. They stepped up to the challenge but came up short in the end. 0-18 The Elliott's had an amazing season! I don't know who had the best time.......I got to take photo's on the sideline for every game........Tanner and Dalton helped with water and ball boy duties at every game..........Darin has such a passion for coaching these kids for the past 12 weeks and then there was Tabor.......It was amazing to watch the transformation Bubba had over the past 3 months. He was a team leader in tackles on JV, he gave 100% every game, he earned a starting spot on the varsity offensive line for game 4 of the season and never gave it back and he developed this sweet cut block! The boys had to handle a tough loss but as a parent you were so proud to see your son's be a part of that RAIDER BROTHERHOOD. We want to thank our family members who traveled many miles to see the team play 5 out of 10 games. It meant a lot to the kids and many community members commented to us how we have a supportive family. No rest for the Elliott family deer hunting season starts next Saturday and goes for 2 weeks. Then on the 21st we jump into Basketball and Wrestling.
