Busy as a Bee

We are busy these days. Crawling everywhere, pulling up on everything. He was even climbing up the backrest of our couch to get to my fall flowers! He doesn't sit still unless he's forced to by straps. He must be grabbing something at any given moment. We are experiencing lots of bumps and even a couple bruises. But it is so fun!

This is how I've been finding my little guy upon waking. He is a maniac, pulling up anywhere he possibly can. We are in trouble!

As I sit here tonight browsing through friends and family blogs I find a common theme among them... HALLOWEEN!!! I thought I better get my act together and post Jack's first Halloween pics before I never do. I must say - his costume was adorable and he was hands down the cutest baby of the night, anywhere on the entire earth. And if you disagree with me, well then, I just might have to fight you! :)

Alligator Huntress

As most of you know, Daniel is big into hunting... and I am not. He is very diligent in trying to change my mind, and I do believe that I have come around on many things. I have handled, shot and currently own guns, which I would have never, ever thought would happened. I have allowed him to hang his animal mounts in his office which, previously, I would have never allowed anywhere in my home! And I try to be supportive of him when he goes (quite often) on hunting trips. But to actually hunt myself, no, I don't want to ever do that. I DID, however, agree to going gator hunting and Daniel was so excited. Here is my reasoning on this. If given the chance - a gator would annihilate me in seconds. A deer - not so much. Gators are a nuisance, dangerous and over populated. I tried to think of them as giant cockroaches - which I have NO problem killing. Deer - while their population must be controlled as well, can be hunted by those who want to - not by me. They are too beautiful. Anyhow, I was able to get 2 gators. This is how it's done. You first harpoon them, then drag them back to the boat and when they are close enough you kill them with a bang stick. Both of my gators were just over 7 feet and yes, their heads are being mounted as we speak. Please don't think any differently of me... I have just become a product of my environment. :)
