Funniest Story You Have Ever Heard!!!!!!

Please take a second to prepare yourself for the funniest story you have ever heard!

In this crazy world it fairly common to think the worst of people. I also think that movies did not help this situation.

Cassandra left the house today around 2 PM to go shopping with her mother. I went hunting around 2:15 PM and Steve laid down in front of our great christmas shrub around 2:16 PM. Cassandra bought a pair of jeans and I saw 5 deer, all does, and steve slept. Uneventful, I know, until...
I got home around 5:45 PM, without a deer, and there was a package on our porch. I walked up an noticed that there was no address on it. I looked closer and something that looked like sawdust was coming out of the bottom. I look all around and the package was totally unmarked. I grabbed steve and took him out to pee. While I was out there I called Cass and she talk to her mom who relayed it to her dad who ask a few more questions. After some debate we decided that we pay taxes so why not reap the benefits and call the Maumelle Police. PS They pulled Cass over the other say so I think they already hated us. Well one guy came out and we talked to him for a while and he looked at it and didn't feel comfortable about it so he called the Fire Department and thats when it all took off. They came flying with their lights on and guns a blazing. One guy came out and put on gloves and began looking around this suspicious package.

Let me recap for you. Package, police, firemen, and cass and I thinking how crazy this is and how out of hand this has gotten.

The firemen told us a story about how in California a guy took a package into a bank and it blew up so we should be safe here and call the Chief of Police. Yeah not kidding. So it took him a while to get there and we all sat around and talked about police stuff. Finally he got there and asked us questions about if we made anyone mad recently or if we are part of PEDA or abortion clinics and we said no. Then he asked what we did for a living and if that would upset anyone and I said my job was to fix that and her job was to help the good guys out. So he backed everyone up to the street and grabbed a knife and did what I should have done 30 minutes before. He walked up there and cut that thing open, which took a while, then turned around and said "Girl Scout Cookies", then walked away. I didn't understand either. So we walked up there and looked in and saw cookie like things and we picked them up and cass actually took a small bite. We look closer and they had paw prints on them and we came to the conclusion that someone brought steve some treats. So police x 3, firemen x 2, Chief of Police x 1, by-standers x 3 and a ton of cookies. We apologized to them and they left. No big boom, just a happy dog.

What we have decided happened was this.... when cassandra had her yard sale a nice man wanting something but didn't have any money. He asked to trade some dog treats for it because he saw we had a dog. Cass was happy about that and since then we have seen small gourmet cookies show up in nice packaging on our side porch. We think he got some extra scraps and gave them all to us. Thanks dog treat guy! HAHAHA! Good times.

Here is the BOMB!

Fire Truck!

Fire Truck AGAIN!

Firemen and Policemen getting ready to be blown up by the cookie BOMB!

Here are the ingredients for a crazy BOMB!

See the paw prints? Sorry everyone....we watch to many movies.

Side story: One of the policemen that came was the same one that pulled cass over the other day and he was scared and hiding behind a tree, plus his fly was down, so there jerk. Now we're even.

Oh Christmas Shrub, Oh Christmas Shrub how spindly are your branches...

It's Christmas time at the Haugh's! Our thoughts are, why pay $50 for a tree when God gave us all this ground to go find one ourselves. This has already become a tradition in our little family, and I think we all know how serious traditions can get. At the bottom of the tree you can see our little singing penguins that Grandmomi got for us. They are fun!

This is the mantel above our fireplace. Cassandra made the ice sickles from sticks in the yard.

The past month in a nutshell

We haven't updated recently a little because of lack of willingness but mainly due to lack of time. Our lives just get going and it seems hard to stop and let everyone know how we're doing. The next several blogs below are a small snap shot into the past month of our lives. There was so much more that went on but these are the event we got pictures from. Cassandra is still working hard and I am still making my trips to Searcy for school. I really love what I'm doing and my heart is ready to get out there and start working but I know my mind isn't there yet. That is what this schooling is for. I begin going into sessions with a co-therapist within the next week. It's exciting and scary at the same time. Between 12 page papers, presentations, and entire books to read in a couple days I have been hunting pretty hard. I had been hunting for over 2 weeks with out even a glimpse of a deer when one crazy Tuesday morning it all came together. To make a long story short I ended up seeing 4 deer, 3 of which were bucks. One of those bucks was a huge wall hanger and I missed him. Sad story but there is a good ending. 10 minutes after the miss a smaller 6-point walked in and within 20 minutes I was up to my shoulders in gut piles! I'll get some pictures up of the deer as soon as I get some because I had to be at school right after I shot him and I had no time to get any pictures. A more in depth story will come with pictures.

As for these next few blogs, I'll try to do my best at explaining most of the pictures...Yesterday Cassandra steve and I went to petit jean mountain and it was great! It was beautiful and I was able to fish and steve got a lot of exercise (maybe too much) and cassandra was able to take lots of pictures. We all loved it. There is a picture in there where steve was so hot and tired that we took a break and I fished while cassandra and steve laid by the water... well steve actually laid in the water which was pretty cute...he's still a lab at heart even if he can't run around like one. One of my favorite pictures is of steve in the car with his ears flying...he loves the back window open.

The next blog is of a crazy experience we had this morning. Cassandra took steve out to pee at 6am (we thought it was 7am b/c we forgot about the time change...o well) and there happened to be two young black puppies running around. They ran up to steve and cassandra grabbed steve so he wouldn't fight them. After a struggle she was able to get steve inside and I went out to look at the tags and call the owner. They wanted to play so bad I couldn't read the tag so I held one down and pulled his collar off and called the number and no one picked up. They hung out around our house for a little longer then wondered off.

Trunk or treat was great. Pat brought his big nice new Pilot and we play a movie in the car and had dry ice and candy and we were the best car ever!!! Cassandra was scary in one of those pictures. I was a hunter and cassandra was the deer.

The last blog is of cassandra's birthday party. It was so much fun. We played pin the tail on the TV and cassandra smashed up a pinata. We kind of cheated with the pin the tail thing. Then the following Saturday we went to the farmer's market and then walked on a bridge in Little Rock. We got to see the actual "little rock" the town is named after. It was fun. Then we went to a park by the river and there was a huge slide we went down. Good times all around.

There is a month in a nutshell. We'll try to do better next time at maybe spreading this out over the entire month instead of all at once.
