tatum: 11 months

the last two months have flown just like the ones before them.
our girl is growing and has a healthy appetite.
is roaming all over the house,
and pulling up on just about everything.
is starting to get more hair...it's light and every once in awhile curls.
loves playing with things that make noise.
and creating noise of her own.
still likes to visit with mama at night over a feeding.
for the most part takes two long naps during the day.
is starting to get her first tooth...we felt it today!
loves: patty cake, the itsy bitsy spider,
peek-a-boo, silly faces,
and of course, brother, daddy, and mama too!

she goes from mad to maybe i'll be o.k. in the pumpkin several times.

she loves chewing on a finger.

love those lashes.

one of our last toothless grins!

she always points so daintily to explore new things.
then usually attacks!
if you look close, there are some goosebumps there.

trying to commit it all to memory,
because it's just going way too fast.

love ya tatum (sugar bear)!

trick or treating

august decided about a month ago that he wanted to be a vampire.
i wasn't so sure, but his reasons were:
it's fooky (aka spooky)
and they can fly.
this mama could live with those reasons.

all ready and in character!

mom and dad came by to see the kids all dressed up.

tatum wasn't so sure of her brother.
but then she got o.k. with it.

the vampire chasing a person (august's idea!).

me and my girl.

i think it's the most handsome vampire ever!

then we headed over to linda and shawn's to trick or treat with cousins and friends.
it's e.n. disguised as batman.

and valley girl kinleigh.

this nice georgia fan stepped away from the game to pass out candy.
and updated us on the score!

after trick or treating most everyone took a hayride,
but it was to full for me to jump on.
it turned out to be the most memorable hay ride ever....
they were chased by cows in the pasture.
all the kids (and adults) agreed that the cows were too close for comfort,
and august said, "it was pretty scary!"
kinda glad i didn't squeeze in on the very back!


saturday fall fun

we hit up the 4H pumpkin patch down town.
first stop was a sword balloon.

then on to the photo area for some pictures.

a few games played.

picking our our pumpkin.
just like his daddy would.
walk in.
i like that one.
let's get it.
it took all of 10 seconds.

sword fighting with huntley.

the little girls together.
tatum wasn't happy about being in the grass,
and it looks like hatton is trying to comfort her...sweet girl!

tatum has really had enough,
and hatton is going to try a stick.
time up!

then we moved on to oktoberfest at the catholic church.
bounce houses and slides everywhere.

tatum liked sitting on the side and bouncing up and down.

having so much fun together.

shaking her booty with the cheerleaders!

samantha, this was the best one!

awesome weather and great fun!
