Thanksgiving.

A brief overview of our visit to Papa and Nana's in Panama City!

Eating lasagna, chicken marsala, and orrechiette with something... I can't remember... at Angelina's.

Helping Papa load the dishwasher.

Hueston and Papa

The library has Legos... Hueston is in heaven!

A walk in the yard turned into a run through the sprinklers.

Note the person-shaped wet spot on Mommy's shirt!

Hueston loves his Papa.

Emmett defending his territory.

Boys and their toys.

Staring contest with Uncle Matt.

Helping Aunt Sara look for something in the fridge.

There's a fun little playground in the neighborhood...

It's a great day for a run!

This swing is super-duper!

I can slide all by myself!

A cave of wonders...

Papa puts the finishing touches on his architectural masterpiece.

This is the closest we could come to getting the boys to stand next to each other!

Playing chase with Mama and Dada.

I love leaves!

I've found a new hiding place...

Hanging out with Harris and Donna!

Dada built a tower every night for Hueston to knock down in the morning.

Nana's $5 tent is really cool.

Watching the rain and waiting for our flight home.

Wednesday.


More on their way...


 Following in Daddy's footsteps?


 Watching people eating from the play-place at Chick-Fil-A.


 I caught Hueston poking pieces of grape into my cocoa mug at breakfast the other day. One stuck to the rim, but I didn't know these were there until I'd almost drained the cup.

Tuckered out.

Answers.

I can't seem to get my own comments to post, so in answer to Mom's question, "this" is Hueston bringing Corduroy for me to read. For three days, that was all he wanted to do.
Actually, today we read through most of the library books we checked out the other day - Dandelion and A Canary in the Library also by Don Freeman, parts of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, What Daddies Do Best, and another one I can't remember. We also read Oh the Pets You Can Get, which was a present from Grandma (which should be no surprise to anyone who knows Janet). Hueston also really seemed to like Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
We did also read Corduroy several times, but it was nice to have a break - especially now that I have it memorized (along with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Big Hungry Bear, and most of his Rhyme Bible Storybook).
Sometimes he hands me the book, waits until I open it, does a little happy dance when I turn to the first page ("Corduroy is a bear who once lived in the toy department of a big store..."), and then walks away as soon as I start to read. I've discovered that the best way to get him to come back from wherever he's gone is to stop reading. :)
I was glad for naptime, because my voice was getting a little tired. Hopefully, however, this means he will love reading as much as his mother does!

Lately...

This happens about 73 times a day.


After a trip to the library to get some friends for "Corduroy," we walked across the street to the park.


Hueston was fascinated with the wall that encircled this piece of the playground equipment - I had to keep a close watch so he wouldn't tumble over it.


We drove to Cleburne today to get my car registration renewed, and outside the courthouse was this fun fall display.


We also got to watch two real fire trucks drive by, sirens blaring.


Hueston has played with this for a while, but he only recently discovered just how much noise it can make.
(It's popcorn kernels inside, and the top is super-glued on.)
