Photo Shoot

Thing 1 & Thing 2

Yes, They really do love each other!

Yes, Yes I realize it has been quite a while for an update. I really do have good excuses though if anyone is interested. I have been sick with a horrible cold that has gone on for about 2 weeks. It completely saps your energy and I felt like a robot. Round 2 of my antibiotics has finally helped and I'm back to the land of the living.
It's that time of year for Christmas Cards so I decided the family needed to go for a photo shoot on the farm. I took my tripod and camera and off to the woods we went. Here are some of the ones that I like the best.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. We were sick until Thursday but managed to have a very nice Turkey Day. On Friday, I went to stay with my 92 yr. old Great-Aunt to help with her care a bit. I was gone until Sunday night and Mike had Noah & Laurel both bring me bouquets of flowers when I came in. We then celebrated with ice cream! I have the best family!

Yep, It's definately Fall......

Mike & his first buck of the year (Noah was pretty excited too)
Mike & his first cayote ever!!! NO, it's not a dog! :)

Miss Priss, multitasking...walking her dog & baby while in high heels. The Ukrainians would
be proud! :)
My sweet babies a bit under the weather watching movies together
Laurel loves gathering the eggs in the morning

With these cool nights and mornings comes the realization that it is definately fall and headed quickly towards winter. I love the fall. I love the crisp mornings, football season (believe it or not), hot drinks and the changing of the leaves. Now, if I asked Mike what he liked about fall he would have a completely different list.... well football would be on it but at the top of the list would be HUNTING!! Yes, hunting season is in full swing around here and we now have some deer meat in our freezer. I also have a beaver in my freezer but that is a completely different story!!!!! Mike has even taken Noah out hunting a few times. However, Noah isn't too keen on sitting still and quite for 2 hours so he probably won't go back for a while. As you can see from the pictures above, Mike's done a good job on his own though. He shot the cayote tonight (Friday) on John's farm. They have a large pack of them roaming about and that isn't too safe for the calves. There is nothing quite so eerie as hearing a pack of cayotes howling just miles from the city limits.
That seems to be it for now. I'll leave you with a funny Noahism that he told me on the way to our small group Wednesday night. Here is how it went....
Mommy: "Noah, what song would you like to sing at group tonight"
Noah: "Hmmm.... let me think. I know, "The King is Exhausted"
Mommy: "The King is Exhausted"????
Noah: Yes Mommy, You know... (singing now) "He is Exhausted, the King is Exhausted, on the Highway"
For those of you who still can't recognize the tune the real song is HE IS EXALTED,THE KING IS EXHALTED ON HIGH. Thank goodness the King doesn't really get exhausted because I sure do.
Kids make ya laugh :)

Parties & Dress Up

Jacob & Noah with his new gun
What a great looking crew! (and everyone wasn't even in this!)
Happy Birthday Noah, Laurel & Szaffi
Little Miss Priss..... I mean Red Riding Hood

Well, you could say we had a whirlwind weekend! We had a Triple Birthday Party & Harvest Party on Saturday. It was a beautiful weekend for it and the kids had a blast. Nana & Poppy once again supplied the Moonbounce and we had a Hayride thanks to Grandaddy. Also included in the fun was Musical Haybales, Pumpkin Decorating and of course lots of food. Thank you to everyone who made this fun day possible. Lots of memories were made. Then Sunday, the kids went Trick or Treating dressed as Little Red Riding Hood and Geronimo. It was Laurel's 2nd year TrickorTreating but the first time she actually enjoyed it. Give that girl candy and she's game for anything. Noah had a blast and didn't even get scared until a horrible looking ghost came to Nana's door for candy. That was it. It was over. Why do you have to be scary to have fun??? I'm pretty sure Noah will be in therapy the rest of his life! Anyway I think it can be summed up by saying "A good time was had by all"..... I hope! :)
