Because It's Hunting Season

There once was a man, who was an avid hunter. One morning, he woke up at 3:30 am, and went down to his kitchen to prepare for a long day of hunting. Much to his surprise, he found his wife standing by the table, decked out in camouflage with a rifle in her hand. "I am going out hunting with you this morning," she said in response to his astonished question. "Aren't you happy?" Bemused and a bit unsure, he agreed to let her come along.
Once at the hunting area, he got his wife set up in her own tree stand, and told her, "Now you just sit up here real quite like, and shoot at whatever comes along. If you need any help, start firing into the air and yell at the top of your lungs." Leaving her, he walked away to his own tree stand.
He had just got out of site of his wife, when he heard a loud volley of shots coming from behind and his wife yelling, "Get away from my deer!" Alarmed, he ran back as fast as he could, stopping short at the sight that met his eyes.
His wife was firing off rounds of shot, still yelling "Get away from my deer!" A man with a large cowboy hat was hiding behind a tree, trying to dodge the shots. Finally he held up his hands and called out in a reassuring voice, "Ma'am, ya can have your deer, but can I get my saddle off of it first?"

Matt had been cleaning stalls and was extra tired. He was sleeping with his mouth open. Our family is always ready for some fun, so I put in a piece of a cotton ball in his mouth. When he woke up, he actually put it in his mouth before spitting it out!

Dayvid getting attacked by a boy-eating monster! Can you see the fear in his eyes?
