Feels like Halloween

We have been doing some fun Halloween activities lately. Last week, we went to a really fun Halloween Carnival at our friend Jayden and Deanna's house. It was so fun. She really put a lot of time and effort into the whole day. Sunday night, Claire and Daddy carved the pumpkin. It is on our back porch. Claire can see it from her little table so every time she eats, she has to talk about the pumpkin and Daddy. We will be in Tallahassee for Halloween again this year. We leave tomorrow. We are excited to see the Harkins and for Bucky to get some time to ride his horse.

Happy Birthday to Will!


It felt like we were tailgating

Claire was tired after a fun party!
This weekend, we went to PCB with my whole family to celebrate Will (5) and Kate's(3) birthday. Things get pretty hectic with 5 grandkids! However, everyone was on their best behavior. We had great weather for a team birthday party. The majority of fans were Auburn, of course. There were also a few Alabama, Florida, and FSU fans too. We had a fun day Saturday at my sister's. We went and made some professional pictures on the beach. Hopefully they will turn out great! Happy Birthday to Will and Kate! We had a blast!

Thank you Aunt Mindy!

Thank you Aunt Mindy, for my adorable Halloween dress. I love wearing it. When Mommy put it on me this morning, I started saying 'cute' and 'circle'. Thank you for making it for me.
Love- Claire

Jack-O-Lantern Lane

Claire's first time on stage.
Riding the 'horse' with Grandma

Picking a pumpkin

Not happy about sitting on the hay

Saying 'hold you'. She says this about 40 times a day and this means pick me up.

She is happy again that she is with Daddy and driving a tractor

Claire and Granddaddy with baby rabbits.

She had a fit over the rabbits, picking up two at a time!

Bucky's Mom and Dad came down for a short visit this weekend. After watching the terrible Auburn game, Bucky took us all to another pumpkin patch. What a good Daddy! I know he is doing it for Claire, but we all have so much fun together. She is definitely attached to her Mommy and Daddy. She is always asking us where the other one is. Very sweet!
After a short car ride, we got to the Jack-O-Lantern Lane in Lafayette, AL. It was kind of overcast, so it wasn't very crowded. We found some good stuff in the gift shop, made some pictures on their decorated stage, and then decided to look around. Claire was pretty grouchy at first. Not uncommon these days. But, she came around after we found some baby rabbits. Bucky is always saying he is going to get her some chickens. I am always saying I want some goats. Now, I am pretty sure we are going to have to get baby rabbits. She had a fit over them! She was carrying them around and handing them to us. I have never seen anything like it! So, no, we are not going to have a small animal farm at our house. But maybe we could add some rabbits to our horses and dogs. We'll see! Just another mouth to feed!
We had fun taking Claire to the pumpkin patch with her Grandma and Grandaddy Street! Thanks for coming to visit and for all of our Halloween goodies!

Happy Birthday Smith!

We celebrated Smith's 3rd birthday this weekend. Claire has so much fun playing with Smith and Larson. The Harkins have built a new cabin at their farm to stay in. It is really nice and will be a great place to hang out at. Happy Birthday to our Godson, Smith! We love you and have enjoyed seeing you grow!
