Happy 80th, Papa Bo

Papa Bo celebrated his 80th birthday this month (October). The whole family came to celebrate in Blackwell. All kids (Papa Bo and Grandmother had 5!), grandkids (15), and great grandkids were there (3)...minus Jamin and Blake - we missed you guys!

I was blessed with two precious hours with Daireth and her baby girl, Tatum. Since Daireth moved to AZ (only two or three years ago), we've both got married and had children. We had a LOT of catching up to do!

Henry and girlfriend Tatum...what can I say? The boy's got passion.

Singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider to Tatum

Henry has onery written all over him

Scrub a dub dub

Eight bottom teeth...can you count them?!

Have I mentioned that Henry's onery??? Check out the hum dinger on his head! He fell off the bed...again...and onto my suitcase. Ouch! He cried for all of two seconds and then was off playing with his barn animals again.

Our little munchkin has become very independent. He prefers to do everything himself...even rocking.

Henry had french toast for breakfast. After the toast was gone, he decided to experiment with his leftover syrup and sticky fingers. His discovery - maple syrup makes for INCREDIBLE hair glue.

Cousin Ricky - Henry is enjoying his leggos...I know you'll be proud.

Dressed and ready for the chilly weather. I know...we've got nothin' on Matine and Montana!
