Catch up with the Kraus'

Kingston is completely embarrassed for his Mama, and how long its been since her last post! Let's see the last post was from THIS SUMMER!?! Oh, JEEPERS... Let's catch up!

School is in session... I'm still teaching Kindergarten and lovin' it. Pine Tree PIRATES... REPRESENT!!! Twenty new lil' kiddos and they are all wonderful. I have a great class this year. Beeper still bleeds "some" blue... BUT he is a PANTHER. This is his second year, coaching at Spring Hill. You name it, and he coaches it!

On to the MAIN SHOW...
My #1 Boy... Kingston Hunter

I'm always up for a photo shoot. Even better when they are impromptu and unplanned. Here are some pictures taking downtown last month. We had so much fun watching Kingston STRUT his stuff. I just can't figure out where he gets it from.

One of my favorites...
So innocent and following his CUPCAKE!!!

I knew if I wanted to get more than 1 picture. I would need something to keep him entertained. Thanks to Mr. G... my man loves him some SUCKERS. So, I got a HUGE sucker that would last him ALL DAY and allow me to take hundreds of pictures... it was PERFECT!

After getting STICKY sucker ALL over our CUTIE outfit... we new what had to be done! Down to the BASICS. Oh yeah, you know Kingston didn't mind. He thought it was great! Check out those dirty lil' feet!

The excitement continues...

Just chillin! You should have seen the people driving by. All of them, STARING at my child sitting in the alley with a ginormous sucker... oh yeah, and with no clothes on. Some people just don't understand... what you have to do to get a GOOD PICTURE!!!

I love this picture... his signature head tilt.
Time for reflection... or is he coming down from his "sugar high?"
You decide.

Kingston and his best buddy... Landon!
Every time "My Michelle" comes to town... it is inevitable that we have a PLAY DATE with our boys! It was crazy when they came over and we opened the door we realized they both had their jerseys on.
Speaking of football... Kingston is obsessed! We wear our Cowboy jersey EVERY Sunday. The minute you turn on a Football Game he is running full speed to the TV screaming, "FOOTBALL! FOOTBALL!" This lil' dude get his football, lowers his head, and with his BOOTY up in the air say, "Down..."
It cracks me up every time!
These two are NEVER still...
Somehow Beep can always get them to lay down and be still just long enough to be... TICKLED!!!

10 years... SERIOUSLY???
Last weekend, Beep and I had our 10 year reunion. It's still NUTS to me, just thinking about it. DENIAL - Not really... I just can't believe that much time has already passed.

We had so much fun!
It was great seeing everyone and getting to meet their kids at the park.

Kingston and Manda...
He thinks it is SO funny to yell "Manda, Manda, Manda..." I know people hear him and think "Listen to that poor kid, that Mother doesn't want to be called Mama and instead she taught him her NAME! Parents these days! What is the world coming to?"
Actually, NOT the case, he gets BIG LAUGHS from his Daddy etc. when he says it... and Kingston is ALL ABOUT BIG LAUGHS... therefore, I am his "Mama Manda!"

Fall is in the air! Well sorta...
One day it 90 degrees, and then a "cold front" comes through and we all get excited. You know what I am talking about. We break out the scarves, even cater to the thought of wearing our UGGS. Then we realize it may be FALL, but it still feels like SUMMER! Summer was fun, BUT I am ready for FALL WEATHER!

Our Fall tree is decorated... and pumpkins are everywhere. Every night, Kingston helps me turn them all on. Every night, it's as if it were the 1st time... he gets so excited!

What's a ghost say Kingston? YEP... BOOOOOOOOOO!
This is the face of... "Picture time is over... and I am done Mama!"

Well that's all for now folks!

I will try not to wait so long next time!

Until then...

Happy Fall Y'all!!!
