Christmas Fat

The other day I was carrying our rabbit, Peter, from the garage to the backyard(in his cage). I was also carrying Ryder. I told Hunter to run and open the back door for me because the rabbit was HEAVY!! He was taking his time, so I said, "hurry Hunter, Peter is heavy."

I set Peter down outside and came back in. Hunter asked me, "Mom, is Peter really heavy?"

I said, "yes!"

He said, "then you can do that(carry the rabbit around in his cage) to lose your weight."

I said, "what weight Hunter."

And he said, "you know, your Christmas fat."

I guess that Hunter had been hearing A LOT of people saying that they were gaining too much weight eating all of the Christmas food and treats and that they would need to start dieting to lose their 'Christmas fat' after the holidays.

We're in trouble...

This little guy is into EVERYTHING!! He has started trying to climb the stairs. He tries to climb into anything that is left on the floor. He climbs into cupboards. He has started opening drawers and then closing them with his fingers inside. He is standing up against things, but not quite sure how to get down and has the red marks on the face and head to show it.

I had forgotten how HARD it is to baby proof things where there are older brothers around. I am constantly finding him chewing on the kids homework that they leave on the floor. He usually has a nice piece torn off and is attempting to enjoying a meal full of fiber:)
His favorite place to crawl to is the bathroom. If he sees that the boys have left the door open, he heads there as fast as possible. When he sees me coming after him he goes full speed with a HUGE smile on his face!!
He turned 8 months old last week. I'll try to get a good picture of him today that shows off his new tooth.

Mighty deer hunter

Jake's Grandpa took him to a National Wild Turkey Federation Conservation Banquet Fundraiser dinner awhile ago. At the dinner Jake got some tickets that he could enter into different drawings for prizes. OH BOY!! He is one lucky kid! He won several COOL prizes. One of the prizes that he won was a guided doe hunt in Texas.

A couple of weeks ago, Jake, his dad, his grandpa, a couple of cousins and a couple of uncles all headed to Texas to enjoy the prize and the hunting experience together. Jake didn't get a deer, but he had the time of his life!! He had a great time spending quality time with family. Here are a couple of pictures of him dressed up warm by his 'hunting blind'. I guess it was SUPER cold in the mornings and evenings, but very nice during the day.
