Our Week in Review

We have had a pretty busy week here at the Huddleston homestead. Last Saturday was the big game...LSU vs. Florida. While the outcome wasn't what we hoped, we at least have a cute picture of our little tiger stomping on a gator!




On Monday night, our friends, the Mangums, hosted FHE/baby shower at their house, complete with bonfire, hot dogs, and s'mores! Daniel was mesmerized by the fire...and made me a VERY nervous mommy. Luckily, he never got too close. He loved running around with the older boys...he was always trailing behind, but that didn't bother him one bit!



I have started watching my niece Halle twice a week so her mom can go back to work part-time. I was a little worried at first that Daniel might get jealous or feel a little neglected, but that is totally not the case. He LOVES that little girl! As soon as she gets to our house, he yells, "Baby!!" and holds his arms out so he can hold her. He likes giving her hugs and kisses thoughout the day. If she gets upset or starts crying, Daniel is the first one there to see what is wrong. Once I was in the kitchen when Halle started crying, and Daniel came and grabbed my hand and led me to her saying, "Baby Halle. Baby Halle." He is like her little guardian!



Today, Halle had a little projectile vomiting episode. Daniel got so upset that he started crying. Picture me sitting on the couch holding Halle, she spits up all over herself, me and the couch. Daniel freaks out. I put Halle down, and I am trying to clean Halle, the couch, and myself all while Daniel is crying hysterically trying to get me to hold him. In the midst of all the drama, sweet Halle is laying on the couch with a look on her face that says, "Ahhh, I feel so much better!"



On Wednesday, Daniel and I went to the Pumpkin Patch with our friends Janel and Kate. He had a blast! When we first got there, Daniel headed toward the small petting zoo. There was a cow, pony, goat, pig, some rabbits, and a turkey (I think). He loved getting up close and personal with the animals.



Best Buds.

Next was a little eductional bit about pumpkins, but I didn't hear it because Daniel wasn't interested...he was more interested in riding the mini tractors. After that, the kids had the run of the place. There was a field where you could pick out your pumpkin.



There was also a huge inflatable pillow type thing that you could jump on...of course we had to check that out!




And endless photo-ops...



Almost 3 feet tall!!

A tire swing made to look like a horse...clever.


Two more random pictures...then bedtime.

Chillin' in the ball pit.
