Sorry that the posts are way out of order, it's amazing that they even got done!! I'm going to try to at least update once a week. I'm still new at blogging and get frustrated easily!
Happy Holidays!!

Never Forgotten

This has been a hard year for both mine and Mike's families. We lost both my Grandmother and Mike's Aunt Darlene. Both were amazing women, friends and Mothers. They will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
This is my Gramma Hilda and Hunter.


A week or so before Halloween we took a trip to the Pumpkin Patch with Hunter. My Mom and I took him last year when he was a teeny baby, ok let's face it, he was never teeny! But here is last year's picture

And this year!!

We were going to put him in his costume again, but it was really hot that day.
This year we were Dorothy and the Un-Cowardly Lion!!

Hunter with his Daddy, I couldn't get him to dress up.

First Haircut!!

It became very obvious to us that Hunter needed to get a haircut when his bangs started hanging in his eyes. I had been saying for a couple months that I would take him, but I was stalling. Getting a haircut means my baby is growing up. Am I ready for this?

This was the morning of the haircut. Look at those curls!!
He was crying and would not sit still, he was sure that the hairdresser was trying to do him harm!! So I gave him a lollipop! It was actually a tip that my friend Rachael gave me. We've been really resistant to giving Hunter a lot of "junk", but it really helped!
And he loved it!!

I am a little behind in my blogging as this haircut was done on his birthday in September, and again he needs another one and again, I'm stalling!!

Mike's Hunting Trip

I've been meaning to post these for a while. Mike went bear hunting to Maine in the begining of September. Last year he was unable to go because it was really close to my due date and he didn't want to chance missing the big event (Hunter didn't come until three weeks later!). So he made sure he got there this year.

Merry Christmas

It was a very Merry Christmas!!! Hunter was very spoiled with lots of toys, clothes and books (his favorite!). Here are a couple pictures . . .

How can you say no to this little face?!

Hunter loves his new Zebra toy. It's fun to watch him get on and off it.

Daddy helping to put his new fireman boots on.

He looks so cute in them!

Hunter is 1! How did that happen!! Well it seems that Mike and I have survived our first year of parenting without too many scars! The begining was rough but I think we got into a good routine pretty quickly! Neither one of us have been involved in the caretaking of too many babies so this was a huge learning experience for us. It just gets better everyday.

Hunter's birthday cake. It was really important to me that I make it!
Everyone else got cupcakes!
He didn't dig right into it like I hoped but I think he still enjoyed it!


Camping . . . again.

We do alot of camping on the weekends, for Labor Day we went to Lake Lauderdale.

Hunter playing in his new tunnell!
Swinging - he cried right after this!
There were some hot air balloons taking off in the field at the campground, it was pretty cool!

Hunter and his 4-wheeler

Hunter loves his little 4 wheeler, he can make it go, he's just not so good at turning it!!

Mohawks and hats

I can't reist putting Hunter's hair in a mohawk after I slather the sun block on him, it's so cute on him!! Remind me how cute mohawks are when he's 10 and wants one!!

My little man!
At first we couldn't get Hunter to go into the binocular tunnel, then we couldn't get him to get out of it!! Silly boy!

Fathers and Sons

My very own . . .

We had a "grown-up" weekend camping trip. Mike told Hunter that if he was a good boy for Nana, we would bring him back a surprise. This is what he got!! Now he can ride along side Daddy!!

Just for fun

There aren't many pictures of Hunter and I since I'm usually behind the camera, this is a "self portrait that I took!

Pals . . .

Hunter and I walk with the girls Tuesday and Thursday nights (or at least try to!). Here is a pic of Hunter's pals, Briana and Owen. The boys weren't being very co-operative!!

Outside Fun

Hunter and I had some fun in the sun!! Here are a couple pics to share, we even found a 4 leaf clover!!

Big Boy

Hunter is becoming such a little boy and less baby boy. Here is a picture for comparison. The first one was taken in November, so he's about 6 weeks old, the 2nd was taken July 21st.

New Friend

We went to the Firemen's Carnival where Hunter met a new friend!! Elizabeth is a couple months younger than Hunter.
