And the battle continues...

So I decided today that I need a basement...or I guess you could say my marriage could use a basement. Let me explain. I already have quite the collection of dead animals inside of my house. I'm okay with the fact that my husband is a hunter. What I'm not okay with is how he thinks he needs to turn everything he shoots into a trophy and hang it proudly in our house. Isn't that what a garage it for? This morning Brett came home with a new "decoration" for our living room. I tried to politely tell him we had reached our "dead animals in the house" quota, but he continued to hang up the deer mount he just brought home. Of course Reed was thrilled and wanted to help Dad hang it up. All I have to say is I better move into a house with a basement before the next hunting season begins.
The deer mount is new today. I tried unsuccessfully to talk Brett out of hanging it up in the same room as the elk and the mountain lion. So if you come over to visit us in the near future, I am apologizing right now for any children these animals might scare. I'm just giving you a heads up.

Hey Becky,
I just saw your blog today. The trophy animals do get old. I hope you've atleast been successful in keeping them out of your bedroom, because I haven't. I guess that's the problem with making a huge family room, our bedroom , there is too much room for extra stuff. Sorry, that you guys had a fire scare today, but I'm glad you're all okay and that your home is still standing. Congratulations on the 2nd baby, hope things are going good for you guys. Chrissi

Amen to the dead animal rule! I'm keeping my limit to ZERO!!! A house is made to look homey and inviting, not like a dead animal museum! I'm also glad that you are still pregnant (although you might not be) and I'm also glad that your house did not catch on fire. Although if it did maybe you could have built a new one with a basement and a "man room". Love you!

I love Brett's Hobby. i would have to say that I would have to KILL him if he was my Husband though. So , I can just laugh and say that I never have to worry about this problem.
