Wife of the Year!

What am I????????? Anybody know??

Here I am hung on the wall... Rex is my name (thanks Brock!) and I am an Oryx.

So, Landon hunted this animal way back in January 2008 and we just got it back over Labor Day. Let me just say.... I have been secretly dreading this day for a long time. I never thought that I would be the wife that let my husband hang things (aka. dead animal heads) on my brand new walls in my beautiful new home. I should get a prize for being wife of the year because I think that I am pretty awesome. :) Not only did I let him hang this, but he has a whole hunting room.... and I have a laundry room. Lucky me!

Oh, and an Oryx is an animal from Africa that was brought over to the White Sands Missle Range in New Mexico to see if they would flourish. They did and now you can draw a once in a lifetime tag for them and Landon did. They really are beautiful animals and the taxadermist (sp???) did a great job. Come over and see it anytime! Maddie my niece informed me tonight that he is really cute.

Happy birthday honey. No more animals pretty please.
