Opening Season

 We went to the deer lease last weekend for the much anticipated opening weekend.  We were up long before the sun and in the deer blind, as you can tell by the sunlight in the picture.
 This man lives for the hunting but thankfully he really enjoys taking his family with him even more!
 Brent ran up to me when I picked him up from school yelling, "We are going to the deer lease!"
 The kids love using their own binoculars to check for deer.
 They love climbing all over us also!  It is a tight fit but quite cozy!!
 Afterward we checked the camera on the feeder and then trekked footprints on the way back to the truck.

 Caitlyn even found a shed antler!
 We rode four wheelers for a good chunk of our afternoon. Check out Caitlyn our her own four wheeler.
 She is a wild woman on it too!  She loves to get off the rode and drive through the trees, over branches and through the creeks that of course are dry.
 Brent still loves to ride with daddy!  Smart choice!
 In the afternoon, we were all pretty snoozy in the blind.  I love how the kids snuggle and check out how Caitlyn is holding Brent's hand.  I hope they are sweet like this forever!
Jeff let them ride in the back of the truck from the blind down to the feeder.  We had the back window open and Brent kept leaning in and saying, "Dad, we sure are having fun back here!"  It's the little things!

It's Tricky to get these little Treats up on the blog!

 But better late than never!
 Presenting my Leopard and Thomas the Train makes a comeback in 2011!
 I normally let them have a piece of candy and then there sweet loot is out of here.  This year I broke down and let them check it out and indulge for a week.  Okay, so WE all did!
Even my little man is big enough to let a big bowl of candy sit on the table and not get into it.  When we got back from passing out candy the kids were able to pass out candy to the other kids.  They had the best time passing out candy! 

We had a great time walking around the neighborhood with our dear friends.  It's pretty cool when your close enough to your friend's kids that they run up and grab your hand to walk too.  Priceless!

Great night!!!

World Series Excitement

 Jeff was got to go to the World Series on Sunday night and I was so jealous.  Somehow I got lucky and got a ticket on Monday night.  I worked some quick magic and rearranged a hair appointment and whipped up a babysitter and we were off!

 Thank you Ryan for giving me a ticket!  Sunday night was an all boys night.
 It was pretty cool to the FOX sports booth live after seeing them so many nights on TV.
 Check out the logo on the World Series.
 Here we are: Jeff, Ryan, Me, Haleigh, Preston, and Tyler
 We were up high but it didn't matter the atmosphere was amazing.  Highlights:  Winning the game, hearing the crowd sing the American Anthem together, hearing the crowd sing God Bless America even louder together, walking downstairs after the game chanting "Rangers" together and feeling the togetherness of the crowd.  It was a pretty cool night!

Fall Carnival

 Each year we go to our neighborhood sponsored fall carnival.  This year two of my highlights were: 1) having daddy with us, seems like he is usually still hunting and 2) seeing Brent color.  He was serious with his pumpkin!
 My toothless wonder had to have her cotton candy.
 And get her picture taken with the fireman, but this year Brent would have nothing to do with the fireman.  Boo!
 The ponies were a big hit again!
And Brent was brave enough to ride too!  The bounce  houses were also a big hit as well!  The weather was obviously beautiful as you can see with Brent in shorts!

Happy Fall!
