The Beauty of Autumn

OK, so I'm behind a few months.  Finally got my Fall pictures developed, thank you SnapFish!  Love the quality of my pictures and the colors.  So I have a few LO's to share tonite. 

My first LO is from my nephew Logan's first hunting trip.  He begged my Hubby to take him hunting.  Matt's not obsessed with hunting, like some men, but he does enjoy going a couple of times a year.  Logan wanted to go squirrel hunting.  Now anyone who knows me understands that I don't uphold killing small, furry, defenseless animals.  But I do understand that over population does cause disease.  I went squirrel hunting once with Matt.  I shot at 1 squirrel, he got away, and I was traumatized for life.  I often think what the poor little thing looked like at the end of my gun upset me much more than it did him.  Enough stories, here's the LO:

Up next is a Thanksgiving LO I did:

This is Thanksgiving at my Papaw's.  I used Noel Mignon's "Dear Diary" Kit on both LO's.  Autumn is probably my least favorite time of the year, because Winter is next!  But I love working with the darling Autumn colors! 

Got a few pictures to share tonite.  Since I'm already talking about Thanksgiving, lets talk turkeys.  Remember my turkeys I hatched in an incubator in July.  Well my 3 Tom's (male turkeys) are all grown up and struttin' their stuff. 

They are constantly strutting and gobbling.  When you get near the barnyard they start gobbling, I'm sure they're saying "about time, we're ready for a snack."  These guys are great pets and we love them.  Speaking of pets, my local newspaper is having a "Cutest Pet" contest.  I know I have A LOT of pets, so how do I pick one.  Since we have to submit a picture, I decided to pick the pet that is in one of my all time favorite pictures, and the winner is Freddy the Donkey!

He loves treats.  That's what he's after in this picture and I love his little pearly whites!  Looks like dentures!  So if you have time, I'd love your vote.  Just follow this link to vote for "Freddy the Miniature Donkey".  Voting is from February 7th to February 23rd.
