eat it girl

This morning we tried rice cereal with a spoon!!!  ER loved it!  We started with about two ounces of milk in her bottle just to give her something in her tummy.  Then we moved to the highchair (which was also new - and she loved)! I mixed a few ounces of milk with the rice cereal, and we tried out the spoon!  She moved her tongue all over the place, but I think she swallowed some!  Ha!  If nothing else, she had lots of fun!  We had to get to church on time so after about 30 minutes I gave her the rest in her bottle!  Good job Ely Reed!

happy girl!

This is Ely Reed in the morning... she is such a morning person like her Mommy!  Daddy gets up her, sings to her, changes her, feeds her her first bottle of the day, watches Boy Meets World with her then sits her in her swing where she smiles and talks (and sometimes naps) before Daddy returns to put her in her school clothes!  She is one happy girl!  We are truly blessed!

infant baptism

Congratulations Ely Reed!  Our little girl was baptized this morning along with her friends Ella and Emma!  She was a little angel... mostly bc she was exhausted and really wanted to just sleep!
Today ER is officially four months old!  Wayne and I took her to her four month appointment on Friday morning!  She weighed 16lbs 12oz and measured 24.5 inches in length!  She is in the 97th percentile in weight - she loves to eat like her mommy!

the cabin

Wayne, Ely Reed, Dean (MIL) and I traveled to the cabin this weekend for the guys to do some last minute preparation for the upcoming hunting season.  The girls did lots of sleeping!!!  ER even wore her cabin p.j.'s with bambi and bunnies!!!  Too cute!  
Of course, we also watched the BULLDOGS play LSU!  Wayne & his COW BELLE made lots of noise!  ER loves watching sports with her daddy!

big truck

My husband is so happy... he brought home a new truck today!  We have been talking about the purchase for months, but we decided it was time when we had to take two vehicles to the cabin.  He is thrilled!

msu vs auburn

Wayne and I traveled to Starkvegas last night to cheer on the Bulldogs against Auburn.  Wayne was a cutie in his official MSU shirt... My maroon dress was comfy (Thanks Jess)... Tailgating was fun... The box was fabulous (Thanks Lukes)... The game was a bit sad... I hope we can attend a WIN!!!

1 year and $865 later

Yay!  The stand is up, and we are officially ready for deer season!  Wayne designed the deerstand over a year ago!  Then several of his buddies got together and constructed the floor.  Last week the guys built the box in our garage in one night.  Wayne painted the next night.  And this week the structure was put together!!!  It looks great, and I cannot wait to shoot a big deer out of the window.  Good Job Wayno!

Wednesday, September 1, 2010


We introduced Ely Reed to her bumbo tonight, and she loves it!!!  She sat in it for about 30 minutes!  Her adorable rolls made it a little difficult to get her out of the seat though!  Ha!

the beach

The second annual Black family beach vacay took place in Orange Beach.  We changed things up this time and stayed at the Caribe, which we loved!  We also took our first family photo in the traditional white and khaki!  :)
ER absoultely loved to swim!  She kicked the entire time she was in her floatie and took some great naps afterwards!  I wore my first mommy swimsuit!  Fun!!!
We ate some terrific food and really enjoyed some relaxation!!!  Wayne and I especially loved that ER stayed in Sissy's room so we were able to sleep in every morning!  Yay Sissy!!!
Already looking forward to 2011... maybe we will wear white and bright?!?!?

Sunday, August 15, 2010

day of rest

Isn't ER a doll?  Her Sissy (Wayne's mom) makes all of her smocked church clothes!  
Ely Reed and I took full advantage of our day of rest... we slept!  ha!  We both were sleepy heads so we caught up on some zzzzzs!  It was great and super refreshing!

the fair!

A big thanks to the Luke's for inviting us to the fair again this year!  Chris and Melanie joined us!  The festivities began with the horse races.
The guys had a great time cooking and entertaining! 
Such a fun group of girls... we were ready for the midway!!!
We could not get Wayne to ride the Ring of Fire this year, but he held all of the stuffed animals!
Another great year at the fair!!!

Two Months

Ely Reed is two months old!  Time truly flies when you are watching a little one grow.  Speaking of growth, ER now weighs 13lbs and is 23 inches long!  Everyone says she is starting to look more like me, but I hope she keeps the long and lean look like her daddy!  :)  She is talking up a storm and moving like crazy!  She loves watching the Atlanta Braves with her daddy!  She is truly a daddy's girl! 
I offically go back to work on Monday which is bittersweet!  I am excited about adult interaction, but I know I will miss her like crazy!  
We are so in love with our little princess - or our booger if you ask Wayne!

Sweet Baby Garrett

My beautiful best friend, Leigha, had her little boy on Friday... YIPPEE!!!  Turns out Baby Garrett was actually a big boy, weighing 8lbs 12oz.  Today the Black family traveled to Memphis to meet the new addition to the Dawkins family.  Garrett is a doll!  He has chubby cheeks, loves to be cuddled and has as much hair as his mommy had when she was born!  We could hardly believe the difference in Garrett and Ely Reed's size - they are only two months apart!  Congrats Leigha and Jason!  We love yall!!!

Ranger Ride!

Ely Reed went on her first Ranger ride tonight!  I think Nova and Neeli were more excited than she was about the adventure!  When you say Ranger at our house our black girls go crazy!  We had a great ride around the neighborhood (and I got to go in some new houses that have been built in the last couple of months)!!!  It was a great family outing!  :)

6 weeks

I can hardly believe that Ely Reed is 6 weeks old!  She got her shots today, and they gave her bandaids with characters I know nothing about!  I am sure I will be learning soon enough!  :)  So, the shot deal was not fun!  She cried like she was dying so I started crying... it was just a mess!  I was by myself this time, but I will be recruiting WB for our next visit!  :)  On a positive note ER is growing like a weed!  She weighs 11lbs, 7oz which puts her in the 95%.  She is 21.25inches!  She is sleeping most of the day away and wanting me to hold her (which I love)!  Now I need to start mentally preparing myself for her 4 month shots! 

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Guess Who...

is ONE MONTH OLD!!!  Ely Reed!!!  She is pretty surprised about it too!  ER loves sleeping in her crib, eating all the time, exercising on her back, swinging in her swing, cuddling with her mommy and daddy, bathtime, chilling on her playmat, entertaining her sisters (Neeli and Nova), gooing, gruting and making all kinds of noises, visiting with her Sissy (Wayne's mom), Pappy and Aunt Sara, checking the mail with mommy, Neeli and Nova, sunning in the backyard (every girl needs her vitamin D), traveling in her carseat and visitors!!!  We are loving being her parents!!!

Daddy's Little Girl!

Somebody really loves her daddy!  This is her favorite spot in the world!

And if she's wide awake, she just lays on her back in the same spot! 

You could say they are both pretty happy to have each other!  :)

Ely Reed's Arrival

Needless to say, Tuesday night was quite sleepless for me.  I think I was so anxious that I could not sleep past 2am.  That was not such a big deal though.  Wayne and I had to be at Woman's Hosptial at 5:30am!!! 
Ely Reed Black arrived at 4:33pm on Wednesday, May 26th.  She was a healthy 8lbs 2oz and 20 inches long!  This is our first photo as a family of three!
Day 1 of Ely Reed's life was pretty exciting!  She had lots of visitors, an adorable outfit and lots of loving!  Everyone commented on how much ER looks like her daddy which I just love!!!  I must say that Wayne is a beautiful little girl!
By noon on Friday, the Black family was headed home with our little princess!  She wore the same blue dress that I wore home - it was perfect with her beautiful blue eyes! 
Neeli and Nova were very excited that Wayne and I were home.  They are still smelling Ely Reed!  Nova is a good bit more excited - she is already snuggling with ER and getting in her face!  Neeli is keeping her distance, but she is very curious when she thinks we are not paying attention!

38 weeks

This morning I had my 38 week appointment - still no change!  Ely Reed is just chilling and loving every minute of it!  And I can breathe and have not had to deal with frequent bathroom trips, so I can not complain!  
The appointment was very informative.  It appears that the "no change" may lead to a c-section!  I was thrilled to have a sonogram - Wayne was so bummed he was not present!  She was a wiggle worm while the sweet sonographer was attempting to measure her, but it appears that she is about 6lbs. 15oz.  Needless to say, she could be a very big girl!  She still has long legs!  And she has the cutest little profile like her daddy!  
To my delight, when I arrived to the office from my appointment my co-workers surprised me with a baby shower, lunch (i heart some pizza shack) and strawberry cake (beagle bagel is the best)!  So fun!  And Ely Reed got tons of adorable stuff!  We also got to see ER's best friend's mommy, Misti (photo above).  
How Far Along: 38 weeks (but it will be two more weeks before she arrives unless something drastic happens)
Total Weight Gain: ummm... still not going to talk about it!  I have not yet surpassed the scary number, and that's all you need to know! :)
Maternity Clothes: Still loving my maternity clothes!!!  I may look like a tent, but I feel great!
Moment of the Week: Seeing Ely Reed would have to top the list, but I have gotten tons of adorable things for the nursery - its all coming together beautifully!
Movement: She is still moving & shaking!    
Food Craving: I heart SWEET TEA!  I cannot get enough of it!  But don't worry, I drink decaf!
Food Aversion: Anything with red sauce!!!
Morning Sickness: Still dealing with heartburn like crazy and just praying that it will go away when ER arrives!
Gender: It's still a little princess!  But since she is dropping I have had so many people ask if I am having a boy!  
Labor Signs: Ha!  I don't know a thing about those hence the c-section conversation!  
Belly Button: Surprisingly its not an outie so I am so happy!!!
What I Miss: Yall are going to think I am crazy, but now that I can breathe the only thing that I miss is the ability to get around and accomplish my to do list in a timely manner!!! Ha!
What I am Looking Forward to: A FINISHED nursery!!!
Weekly Wisdom: An intelligent and well rounded doctor is worth their weight in gold!  I just love that my doc is so honest, straight forward and just plain down to earth!  
Why I Think My Husband will ROCK as a Daddy: Wayne Black HATES a TO DO LIST yet he is helping as much as he can!  It is cute!  He would never do it just for me!  ER already has him wrapped around her finger!

Baby Names

Like most girls I absolutely love discussing BABY NAMES!  So, I am so thankful that Kelly at Kelly's Korner brought up the topic!  I believe I started discussing baby names with Wayne (and his family) when we had only been dating a couple of years (we dated five years before we married).  Ha!
Wayne and I love family names!  And we both have family names. 

Sally Marie Wells
Sally was the nickname of my dad's maternal grandmother - I have heard about her beautiful rosy cheeks and sweetness my entire life.  Marie is my maternal grandmother's middle name and the name she goes by! 
Travis Wayne
Travis (what I affectionately call him) is not a family name but honors a young boy who passed away in his family's church. Wayne is the middle name of every first male son in his dad's family.

Luckily, both of our families have tons of great names! The only problem is that it's hard to narrow down so many wonderful options when you don't plan to have tons of children! So, I guess that where we should start. We would like to have two or three children. Since our first is obviously going to be a little girl, if our second child is a boy we will be done. However, if our second is another girl, we plan to try again for a boy. Of course, there is always the chance that we will have three girls (which is what I think will happen since Wayne is such an outdoorsman).
Our little girl will be...
Ely Reed Black
Ely (pronounced E-LEE) is Wayne's mom's maiden name and, therefore, his Poppa's last name.  Wayne really wanted to name a child after his Poppa (whose first name is Vanis).  And since Van Black does not sound so great, Ely it is!!!  :)  Reed is both of our paternal grandmother's maiden names.  Amazingly, we have had her name picked out for six years!!!  In the beginning of our pregnancy we just knew we were going to have a boy, but I questioned Wayne one night about what we would name Baby B should it be a girl.  He frankly replied Ely Reed as if we had just concluded a conversation on the topic.  Ha!  We plan to call her by both names!
And should we have a little boy next...
Miller Wayne Black 
Miller is Wayne's maternal grandmother's maiden name.  Interestingly enough, she is adopted.  I love that we can honor the family that chose to raise her.  And you know the story behind Wayne.  We plan to call him Miller.
However, should our second and/or third child be a girl, we have a few names that rank high on the list including but not limited to
WellsLeigh & Ann Travis
but I did not discuss this with my husband prepost! Ha! For obvious reasons I love the name Wells (if we had a second boy his name would be Wells). Leigh is Wayne's aunt's middle name - she is who I want to be when I grow up! :) And since our third girl will more than likely be her dad's biggest sidekick, she should be named Travis! Ann is distant family name, but it goes so well with Travis.
I must admit that we could name twelve children with all of the wonderful names that we have picked out! But don't worry, we do not plan to have that many children!

They killed GOATS!

Wayne and Andy traveled 13 hours to a huge ranch in Texas this weekend.  It's their annual turkey hunting tradition.  The first day they were there they killed goats.  Wayne even got one with his bow!!!  I thought it would be a grand idea to full body mount one of the goats for our lodge, but apparently none of their kills were big enough to warrant such a mount.  I never realized that goats are pretty - I really like the black one in the center!  Apparently its horns are suppose to get really big.  In college I always thought Wayne & his roommates needed a goat to keep down the grass in the backyard, but that is a different kind of goat altogether!

35 weeks...

How Far Along: 35 weeks (just 5 weeks to go)
Total Weight Gained: ugh... alot!  But I don't want to talk about it!
Maternity Clothes:  Thanks to my sweet friend Maghen I have the cutest maternity clothes available!  And thanks to Granny I also have some shorts which have been great in this HOT weather!
Best Moment of the Week: Painting Ely Reed's room & assembling her crib, dresser, BOB, etc.  Go Wayn-o!  Our paint  pro friends, Dustin & Amy, lead the painting effort.  And Sissy (MIL) helped with the assembly!
Movement: She is moving & shaking & wearing me out, but I love it! 
Food Craving: I heart dill pickles; we even painted the nursery dill pickle!!! 
Food Aversion: Red sauce or anything that causes heartburn!!!
Morning Sickness:  It's more of a continuous heartburn issue, but peppermint gum is helping tons!
Gender: It's a girl!  Ely Reed
Labor Signs: None, Zero, Never felt those here!
Belly Button: The good news is that it has not popped so I am happy as can be!
What I Miss: The ability to breathe!
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the nursery!!!  Seeing our baby girl!!!  In that order would be nice...
Weekly Wisdom: Just bc your weekly appts have started doesn't mean your baby is ready to come!  She is still high and just hanging out in there with no signs of arriving anytime soon!  For now this is great bc Wayne is going Texas to turkey hunt with Andy this weekend!  
Why I think my husband will be an Awesome Dad: Wayne has been such a good sport!  Yes!  He has a weak stomach, but he is so great during our childbirth classes - he has excellent breathing techniques & he even suggested that we make a list of the items we need during delivery.  Although he may give me a silly face, he is happy to help with anything I ask!  Gotta love that!

Thankful Thursday

Ten Things I am Thankful for:
1. Wayne takes the PE tomorrow!!!  I know he will do AWESOME!  He has studied so hard!
2. We did not have any kids at nursery last night!
3. It's TAX DAY and I am stress free bc our refund is already in the bank!
4. Wayne enjoyed childbirth class this week!  He even suggested that I make a list of all of the things that we need!  What?!?!  I did not know the word list was in his vocabulary!  And he was very involved with breathing techniques and massage!  I was so impressed!
5. We finally found someone to clean our house!  I walked in yesterday, and it smelled like lysol! Yay!
6. Paint will go on the walls in Ely Reed's nursery on Saturday - thanks to the help of our sweet friends Amy and Dustin and Wayne, of course!  The color is dill pickle - how appropriate!
7. Ely Reed's crib and dresser have arrived!  We just have to put it all together - well, Wayne is going to do that!
8. We had Nagoya twice this week!  We usually don't eat out a lot but we both wanted fried rice after cb class.  Then Mel and Chris were in town yesterday so we joined them, the Turner's and Caleb for sushi!  Yum Yum!
9. My nesting has spread to work, and I am getting so much accomplished!  Hopefully it will make my transition to home easier!
10. My visit with Dad and Carolyn this past weekend was great!  And I got to love on the most adorable 2-year-old in the world!

wayne's new toy

Wayne received his personalized duck call in the mail today!  It is a Rich N Tone - that is a brand for all of you who are clueless!  He was so excited after looking at the call all day and not being able to blow it at work that he made up for lost time when he got home!  :)  There is nothing louder than an acrylic duck call and wood floors!  I personally think it's a bit redneck to have a personalized duck call, but I am married to Wayne Black!

Thursday, April 8, 2010

Thankful Thursday

Ten Things I am Thankful for this Week:
1. My 2 week doctors appointment!  I gained 3lbs so I guess Ely Reed is officially in her growth spurt!  Dr. Carroll gave me some great exercise to help my back pain!  And it was a quick appointment!  :)
2. My wonderful husband picked up our custom wood furniture from Star Furniture!  It is exactly what I was thinking!  Pictures to come later!  Wayne has also been on a cleaning streak this week - matching socks, washing dishes!  I heart that he is joining in my nesting!  
3. I was the leader for newspaper sales this week!  Yippee!  This is a rarity!
4. I cooked dinner by myself tonight, and it was ready when Wayne got home!  It was just chicken alfredo but it was good, and we had leftovers!
5. The spring weather is officially here!  I began the celebration today by purchasing red adirondack chairs for the backyard!  I plan to buy geraniums and ferns for the entrance.  And the flowerbeds need a bit more color - I am thinking more yellow!  
6. I finally submitted and approved the final proof of our wedding album this week!  Yes!  We have been married for 3+ years!  We should be receiving the coffee table book the week before our first child arrives!  Ha!
7. Childbirth classes!!!  Wayne did not really enjoy the natural childbirth video, but it lead to some great open conversation at our house!  And our teacher is funny!  
8. We welcomed seven new families to join our church on Sunday!  We had a Meet & Greet on Wednesday to chat with the new female members, and it was well attended!  And so much fun!
9. Shoney's!!!  Wayne and I had breakfast at Shoney's on Saturday!  I had probably not eaten at a Shoney's in 13 years, but it was delicious!
10.  I am  going to visit my Daddy this weekend!  Yay!  Although we only live 2 hours apart, we just don't visit enough!  I miss seeing him!

Thursday, April 1, 2010

Thankful Thursday

I have so much to be thankful for!  I may thank God for an answered prayer.  I may mention a blessing to Wayne.  I may thank a friend or family member for something they have done.  However, it almost seems taboo to discuss my many blessings with others.  On the other hand, if I have some drama I am quick to mention it!  So, I am going to start a healthy habit of listing ten things I am thankful for each week!  Please feel free to join in!

Top 10 Things I'm Thankful for:
1. My husband is a wonderful cook!!!  He literally cooks every meal that we eat, hence the nickname Chef Wayn-o!  And when I say cook I don't mean Hamburger Helper - although his HH is great!  Last night we had fried bream - I caught 'em but he scaled the whole fish with a spoon (Poppa taught him this!) and did all mixes to make the batter perfect!  My fav dish he cooks is wild turkey which he marinates in a secret sauce for a few days then wraps in bacon with a dollop of honey and grills!  It's amazing!
2. Ely Reed is a wiggle worm!  Ha!  It is so comforting to feel (and now see) her moving all around.  While I am in the shower I usually get a swift kick to the ribs - and if I decide to sleep in it is a good alarm clock!  When I drink something cold I feel like she is swimming around!  And after I eat she is all over the place - maybe that means she will like food like her mommy!  I think all of this activity may mean that she will be a bit hyper like her daddy, but that is perfectly okay with me!
3. I have the best girlfriends!  From my college friends to my work friends to my church friends to my mommy friends and more, I am blessed with a well rounded group of girlfriends who are quick to give advice, eager to listen, ready for a girls night, happy to share an easy recipe, etc.  I am so thankful for each of you!
4. Tonight I have my breastfeeding class!  And yes, I really am thankful for it!  I don't know what to expect and I am a bit nervous/excited, but I glad there is a nurse who felt it was her calling to teach women how to breastfeed.  And I am so glad there are other women (besides me) who think breastfeeding is so important for their children that they created a need for a class!!!  Because I surely am not comfortable asking my (male) doctor about breastfeeding!
5. I heart my job!  Yes... we have tons of deadlines!  Yes... it makes time fly by!  Yes... some days are pretty stressful!  But... I have the best clients, the funniest coworkers and tons of fun with it!  It's high energy, and I simply thrive in the environment!
6. My Planner & To Do List!!!  I do not want to focus on material things, but I really am not sure what I would do without these items - especially with pregnancy!
7. I am off work tomorrow!  Yippee!  So excited about a long weekend!  So excited to have a full day to focus on the To Do List!
8. Two little black girls will be so excited to see me when I get home tonight - one may even be excited enough to pee a bit!  Ha!  Nova and Neeli make me smile!  I love them like they are our children, and, well, they are!  In fact, I love them so much that all of the black hair on my wood floors bothers me less and less each day - now that is a big deal!!!
9. Deadline day is OVER!  And all of my magazine ads are tucked safely into the folder!  Go ME!!!
10. The opportunity to give back!!!  I fell in love with community service in college, and cs has continued to be part of my life since!  I am so excited to enter my provisional year in JLJ - the new friends, the projects, the fun!  Cannot wait!!!

Wednesday, March 31, 2010


Each week I get an update from babycenter that compares our baby's size to a variety of fruits and vegetables!  It is pretty funny!  My sweet friend Jess always refers to Ely Reed based on the fruit/veg of the week!  The comparison makes her growth so real!  
This week Ely Reed is the size of a jicama [HEE-kah-mah]!  A what?  I had never heard of such, but basically it's a white-fleshed root vegetable that is grown underground. It's also called a Mexican potato and has a crunchy, sweet flesh and once peeled, can be eaten raw or cooked. Raw, it is a great addition to salads. It can also be used in stir-fries or boiled and baked like a potato.
Well, I feel like I learned something today!

i heart netflix!

So, we don't watch much TV, but I am starting to realize that we are addicted to netflix! 
Wayne has always been a big movie fan.  Not so much a go-to-the-movies fan - I could count on my fingers the number of times that we have been to theatre in the eight years we have been together - but he loves renting movies!  We went through a Blockbuster phase right after we got married (we were trying to catch up on 24 seasons), but we soon became annoyed with traveling seven miles to switch out movies.  We did some research, and we found netflix!  For a whopping $15 a month we get two movies at a time and can watch an unlimited number of movies!  It's fantastic! 
So, we watch all sorts of movies!  Honestly, Wayne is "in charge" of our que so we watch tons boy movies (think war movies and cheesy comedies - these are Wayne's favs), but I also get to pick some of my favs (think romantic comedies) and lobby for all of the new releases to join our que!
But I mentioned addiction?  Yes!  I think I did!  I noticed yesterday that the average Sunday includes church, Sunday school, lunch with the fam, a movie, a nap, community group, a second movie, bedtime.  Don't think at least two movies every Sunday is that bad?  I must admit that sometimes in addition watch a netflix movie that Sara has received that we have not watched yet - that's three movies!  Not to mention that having two NEW movies at our house on Sunday takes special planning.  During the week we often watch at least one movie so we have to calculate the mail to ensure our two Sunday movies are guarnteed!  That, my friend, is addiction!

gobble gobble

Wayn-o killed a turkey!  Yay!  I was honestly starting to wonder what was going on!  Although studying for the PE is taking up tons of Wayne's time, he is still waking up at 4am each morning to turkey hunt!  If he can live on such little sleep you will not hear me complain bc I love turkey (i.e. I love to eat it)!!! 
From what I gather Wayne has Andy to thank for this gobbler!  It was actually Andy's turn to kill, and he had his bow but he could not get in position.  Luckily Wayne had his gun!

tv night

Wayne and I typically do not watch much tv; however, Monday night is the exception to the rule.  For us Monday night typically includes a homemade dinner (and dessert) at his parent's house and our three favorite guys... Chuck, Jack and Horatio!!!  Yes, it's a little silly, but we are addicted!

At 7pm we watch Chuck!  This comedy is about a goofy computer nerd who opens an email which downloads a super secret code into his mind.  As a result he is slowly but surely becoming a spy with the help of a sexy female agent, Sarah.  It's a bit of a love story with a dose of suspense!  And it is so fun!

At 8pm we completely switch gears with 24.  Superman meets Macgyver, this high action suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat as each one hour episode documents an hour in the life of CTU Agent, Jack Bauer, who solves a national crisis each season - in 24 hours!  Its so addicting, but you have to start from the beginning (Season 1)! 

At 9pm we watch CSI Miami.  This 'Who done it?' is the only CSI I have ever enjoyed!  Although it can be a bit cheesy, I love trying to figure it out before Wayne!  And I am pretty good at it! :) 

After a long Monday at work (which is newspaper deadline for me), it is great to just relax and watch our favorite shows.  And it gives me the rest of the week to get lots done!  Ha!

redneck weekend!

Wayne opened turkey season with Caleb in Macon.  From the stories that I am hearing that had a grand time, and Caleb killed a turkey!  Yippee!

Nevertheless, the hogs were the highlight of the weekend!  Really I think they enjoyed playing in the mud and chasing the pigs, but the actual clean up process was a lot of work.  I can only imagine since those hogs weigh so much!  :)
