This and That

I have fallen a bit behind in my posting recently so I thought I might do a mega blitz post with all things fall that have been going on.


We went to the Cancer House to pick out a wig for Grammy and Claire didn’t want to play along. We thought it would be so much fun . . .

IMG_5209This is the afternoon Mommy & Daddy got back from their anniversary trip to Eureka Springs. Claire already napped for two hours, awoke and Daddy went in to comfort her and they slept for another hour when Mommy had to wake them up so they could sleep that night.

Grammy & Gramps and Grandma and Grandpa came over for dinner and we had the birthday cake too.


Claire & Daddy . . .

It’s the Great Pumpkin

Claire Elaine!

We watched the Charlie Brown classic the other night – all four of us. After a feast of Halloweenie Macaroni and Cheese! It was a very fun night.

IMG_5211 Claire really enjoyed her first ever viewing!

Garage Zoo

We were working in the garage the other day and kept running across wildlife and Mommy finally started to take some pictures.

IMG_5202 The walking stick was outside the garage door and hung around for a couple of days.

IMG_5201This guy was hiding in some of Gramps’ equipment. Quite the surprise when we found her.

IMG_5204This was a grasshopper that didn’t hang around for long. He rivaled a hummingbird in size.

“It’s all happening at the zoo . . .”

We went to the Green Papaya for lunch yesterday with Grammy and Auntie Alison. Claire loves that place. Especially eating with the chopsticks.
