St Augustine Girls' Weekend

Natalie and I just got back from our girls' weekend in St Augustine with Auntie Chell and Riley, and we couldn't have had more fun! We ice skated, rode a trolley, took a carriage ride through downtown and we shopped, shopped, shopped! It was a wonderful trip, but now it is time to unpack and finish things up for Christmas!

Visit with Santa


Natalie and Donovan had a long discussion before visiting Santa on what to ask for, then they get up there and Santa asks, what would you like for Christmas, to which Natalie replies, a pooping puppy. She saw a commercial for a toy puppy that poops after you feed it, we already have one of those and his name is Samson, hahahaha!

FSU vs UF Downtown Getdown



Auntie Chell, Riley, Natalie and I went to the Downtown Getdown for the FSU vs UF game. The girls got their faces painted, got to play games, eat, and even walk in the rain, that's right, we got a little wet getting back to the car after a little rain that decided to come join in the fun.

Tea Party Time




A friend of mine held a tea party for the daughters of several of our friends. The girls all had a wonderful time, eating snacks, drinking from real tea cups and doing lots of fun activities. What a wonderful idea and Natalie and I had such a great time together!

Busy Hunter


Daniel had a great opening weekend for hunting season, his first morning he took this great 7 point and that afternoon he finished off with this gobbler that had a 11" beard. That is how you start your hunting season off.

The Whaley's Go Camping




We decided to break in Daniel's Father's Day present and went camping. The tent we got him has partitions that can separate it into three separate rooms, there is room for 3 queen sized blow up mattresses. It is AWESOME!

Funny Natalie Stories

Well, Mom and Dad and I were talking about some of the funny things that come from our little natbug, so I thought I needed to share a few before I forgot them....

Story 1 - Summer 2010 - Crabbing Trip with Nana, Papa, Donovan, Natalie and Riley
Donovan and Riley are talking in the back seat on the way to the crabbing spot about all the dead animals they keep seeing on the side of the road, when Natbug pipes up with "Ya'll stop talking about all those animals, you are making me hungry"

Story 2 - Fall 2010 - Driving down the road in the car with Mom, Natalie and Donovan
Natalie and Donovan are talking in the back seat when Natalie says she is going to marry Justin Beiber, Donovan says, "well, I don't like Justin Beiber, so if you marry him, he is NOT welcome at my house" Natalie, "Well, I can't marry him, cause I don't know where he is right now", Mom "So the only reason you can't marry Justin Beiber is because you don't know where he is right this minute", Natalie "Well, Yeah" in her best DUH tone of voice

Story 3 - Fall 2010 - Again in the car, all these words of wisdom seem to come from the back seat of the car
Natalie "Mom, guess what sound we are learning in speech, sk, you know like skeered"
Mom "you mean scared"
Natalie "Yeah, like I said skeered"

Story 4 - Fall 2010 - On the way to school, Mom, Donovan and Natalie, a little background before this one starts, Samson, our 3 year old dog, came to us from Santa
Donovan "If I ever see Big Foot, I'm gonna shoot him"
Natalie "What if Samson is Big Foot"
Donovan "Samson can't be Big Foot, he is a dog"
Natalie "How do you know, Samson came from the North Pole"
Donovan "Well he is a dog and dogs are dogs"
Natalie "Well, you don't know, he could be Big Foot"
