The Mighty Hunter

Pawpaw has been waiting for a long time for Watts to be old enough to be his hunting buddy and it looks like Watts is finally ready...
Well, aside from the getting up early part and the cold temperatures...
Maybe the post-hunt breakfast is actually more Watts' speed...
But the duo persevered and Watts made his first kill...

He killed the doe on Pawpaw's hunting property, which made it that much better for both of them...

Claire was a very sweet cousin to act impressed...
Hunting is clearly very hard work...
Tracking his kill...

Got her! 
Way to go, Watts!

Watts' Thanksgiving Celebration

Each year the kindergarten class at Parkview celebrates Thanksgiving with not-very-politically-correct Indian shirts.  This year Watts and Claire were two of the cutest little Indians in the tribe...
I could not decide which photo I preferred, so here's that shot again...
Watts was excited to see us at his feast...
Mawmaw came to support her favorite little brave...
The headdress didn't last long, but this Indian outlaw stole all of our hearts!
To see Cille rocking her Indian shirt in kindergarten, click here.  Somehow, I missed posting Stella's Indian shirt pics.  The kids save these shirts and wear them again their senior year, so it will be neat to see how much they have grown between now and then!

Gui-Pour Beach Fun

Who says the beach is only for the summer months?
Sweet friends on the beach with an epic photobomb in the background by Cille...
The indoor pool was much warmer than the gulf...

Playtime at the park...





Beautiful girl and the sunset wasn't bad either...

Snuggles with Mrs. Kelly...


Nothing brings a family together like an iPhone...
These kids are ridiculous...
You know you had a good day when you fall asleep before your dinner comes...
Success! 
Time for church! 

We were all worn out...
But John's crepes perked us up the next morning...

Flag Football

Watts has always been half Texan (from his mother's side), but this year he got the chance to be 100% Texan when he played flag football at Istrouma...
He had awesome coaches and some really great players on his team.  Go Texans!

Cille's Field Trip to the Zoo

These three besties were super excited for their field trip to the Baton Rouge Zoo, even though it was freezing outside!
An owl flanked by some flamingos.  Only in Baton Rouge...

Mrs. Brown's 3rd grade class...



We had lots of chilly fun at the zoo!
