My trip to Jekll Island

My Daddy had a business trip to Jekyll Island, Georgia and Mama and I went with him! It was great - I had lots of fun exploring everything and seeing all the pretty places on the island. We stayed at the Jekyll Island club which is a very historic, beautiful place. Here a few pictures for you to enjoy!

You will see that we also visited the beach - I had lots of fun climbing on the rock wall - I am very coordinated! Just ask my Mama and Daddy!

We also had a very nice visit with our wonderful friends who live on St. Simons Island - John, Catherine, and Julie Rowan. We always have fun with them, and I always like to get a hug from Julia!!!!

I had a fun Thanksgiving!

It was lots of fun getting together with my family in Mississippi for Thanksgiving! I had lots of fun and even ate a little turkey (just a little).

Thank you everybody for playing with me and listening to met say the Pledge of Allegiance 150 times in a row. It is especially good on the 89th time, and I know you hung in there just for that one.

Aunt Courtney, your house is so pretty and BIG and has lots of TOYS! Rachel and John Neil thank you for playing with me so much and sharing your things with me. I love you lots.

A special treat was getting to meet my new friend Irina from Russia! She and her parents Greg and Kathy Ibendahl live in Starkville!

Here are a few pictures from our weekend!


Okay, Okay......I know that my Mama has done a bad job of keeping up with my blog over the past few weeks. Please forgive her. She really likes to do it, but you know this time of year is pretty KRAZY! So, here are some updates for you on what I have been up to recently.

By the way, I am VERY EXCITED about Christmas! YEA! I have already received some gifts. Thank you Gigi and Mr. James for my CINDERELLA DVD - I watch it just about every day and love it. Mama says I am the handsome prince.

Let me share with you my favorite Christmas song. Well, one of them - I have many favorites, including "Oh Come all Ye Faithful." I call it the "Angel Song." I love to sing "OH COME LET US ADDDDDDOOOOOOOOOOOOREEEEEEE HIM!!!" Mama sings Christmas songs to me as she rocks me before I go to bed. I know that I am three years old but my Mama still rocks me and she says she will until I tell her not to anymore. Even if my feet are touching the ground!

Let me sing a Christmas song for you now!

A fun party

Today I went to a party at the Agrirama. I love to go there! It is like walking back in time...but who cares about that...I just like to ride the train and eat ice cream with one of my girlfriends, EMILY!!!! :)

Learning how to pedal!

Today I practiced pedaling my John Deere tractor (thank you Grammy and G-Daddy!!!) and wore my John Deere overalls (thank you Uncle Kevin and Aunt Dena!) I am getting good at this!

A fun visit

I had lots of fun with my Papa, Grandbob, Nene, and cousin Grace who came from Mississippi to see us this past weekend. Daddy and Papa worked on our roof...they took some skylights off our sunroom and I had fun watching them up on the roof! Here are some pictures from our weekend!

A Bumble Bee Trick or Treats!

I had lots of fun TRICK OR TREAKING for the first time! I dressed up like a Bumble Bee and Buzzed around to get lots of candy. My dog Georgia May dressed up like a Bumble Bee, too! We rode in a hay ride around a nice neighborhood with our friends Mrs. Polly, Mr. Charles, and Elizah. I thought I was supposed to go in the houses, and one time I decided to trade my sticky lollipop for a new batch of candy. I didn't think the lady would mind me adding my sucker to her basket of candy, but Mama and Daddy wouldn't let me. Oh well. We went to the Fall Festival, too, and I got on a fun slide and played my own version of lucky ducks! It was a very fun night!

Camping Tips from Keaton

1. Get your Mama and Daddy to take you camping! It is so much fun. The way to have the most fun is to make sure that they do all the work. That's what I did!

2. Pick a fun place to go. We picked Paradise Lakes which is right down the road from us. Make sure your Mama is excited. It helps her to be excited when she is only 5 miles from home. I was really proud of her - she didn't bail on us once!

3. Make sure you go with good friends, like Mr. Charles and Mrs. Polly and their daughter Elizah. "EEEE-WAAAA!" is what I call her.

4. Go with at least one nice dog, but two if you can. Elizah has a cute puppy named Bud, and of course we took Georgia May. They had lots of fun! Their philosophy is the same as mine...let the adults do all work and this adds to your enjoyment of the camping experience.

5. Eat lots of beef jerky and roasted peanuts and marshmallows and get them all over your face and hands.

6. Get so tired that you are crying over nothing. Then Mama will take you to the tent!

7. Get tired of sleeping on your pallet. Grab your Mama and insist on sleeping on top of her to insure that she doesn't get a wink of sleep. This is okay because she would rather work than sleep while camping so that I can have a good time.

8. Wake up at 6 a.m. crying! This is lots of fun. Scream, "I DON'T LIKE THIS TENT!!! I WANT MARSHMALLOWS" and I guarantee you that your Mama and Daddy will take you to the car to sit and warm up.

9. Wear a diaper at all times. It sure beats having to drive to the potty!

10. Stay away from the fire. I heard this at least 50 times during our camping trip. Mama and Daddy, go back to work.

11. Ride in a canoe, but be sure and wear your Scooby Doo life vest!

12. Climb trees and get your nose all bloody. Mix in a runny nose, dirt, and sticky marshmallows and you have the face of a true camper - just like ME!

13. Play with worms that your Daddy is trying to fish with.

14. Take a looooooooooong nap when you get home.

15. ASK TO GO BACK SOON!!!!!!!! :)

We carved a pumpkin!

We had a lot of fun this afternoon...Mama and I drew a face on one of our pumpkins and Daddy carved it! It is so cute - I love it. It is sitting on the bench in front of our house. He is a happy pumpkin! I keep wanting to take his hat off! Tomorrow is hat day at my school - maybe Mama will let me wear it.

I love pancakes and waffles!

Mama had to make three batches of pancakes for me last week. She doesn't know if it is the pancakes or the syrup I like best! Daddy made me waffles yesterday and they were great! YUMMMMMMMMMM!

I love to climb!

I love to climb things - my Daddy helped me climb a tree yesterday and on Friday, Mama took me downtown and we had fun with our friends at a picnic and concert in the park. I got the climb the National Monument! At least, I think that's what it was! Oh, do you see that cute picture next to me? That is my good buddy David Rakestraw.

We Found Nemo.......

Nemo has been found! Asleep in the bed with a precious little boy.....

I love picnics!

Guess what everybody! I got to go to Paradise Lakes yesterday and have a bike ride and picnic with Mama and Daddy! It was so much fun... and after I ate my hotdog, I got my favorite picnic treat....a ZEBRA CAKE!!!! They are yummy. It was such a pretty day and I loved it. When we were finished eating, I helped clean up our trash. Mama and Daddy are helping me learn to clean up my messes....I make a lot of them! Our dog Georgia May loves to go with us on bike rides and picnics. She also loves to swim in the lake which makes her smell like a fish. YUK! But we love her anyway. She is the best dog ever! My cat Mr. Mittens doesn't go with us...she can't run that fast!

Hey Mr. Scary Crow! You Need a Hat....

Keaton and Katie Lin

Hi everyone! Wow - I had a really fun day yesterday. I met my friend from China, Katie Lin Ortmeyer. She and her parents live in Valdosta which is a town not far from where I live. Her mother Kim and my Mama are friends, and we had fun eating lunch together in Nashville, GA! No, not Nashville, TN! Because I promise if I had been in Nashville, TN I would have gone to see my family that lives there, too :) I promise :)

Mimi, we ate a restaurant that was named after you....Mimi's!!! It was really nice. I had fun playing with Katie's toy. She was nice to share with me.

We got some pictures made outside the restaurant where there were pumpkins and a scary-crow. There was even a little courtyard that was named after Katie! That was really neat. I don't think she cared too much :) Then later when we were back in Tifton we saw a house that had lots of Halloween decorations! I called it "Scary the Park." For those of you who don't know, I came up with that name after hearing Mama tell me that a part on a Disney video was the "scary part." I thought she said "Scary the Park."
Now I talk about Scary the Park all the time and I
can't wait to go back. This year I am going to our Fall

Festival and Mama said we will go trick-or-treating! I can't wait - I hear that all I have to say is "trick or treat" and they hand you candy at each house!!! YEA!!!

Then we went by to see our friends Sandy and Cory Ponder and their pretty little baby named Elise. Mr. Cory is a real live musician and he is really talented...he let me play on a cool drum set. THANKS MR. CORY!!! That was lots of fun!

Drumroll please................

A fun time at Paradise Lakes

Hi everyone! Mama took me to Paradise Lakes yesterday for a visit and I did some really fun things! I love to go there. We saw a nice couple in a horse and buggy, and I got to pet the horse. Her name was Charlene. I've never met a horse named Charlene before!

Then, we saw two nice ladies who were fishing and they gave me a fish they had caught! WOW! I carried him around and had lots of fun with him. He didn't act like he was enjoying it very much. Mama threw him back in the water....and I learned something today. Did you know that fish can float? My fish did! :)

I can't wait to go back to Paradise Lakes!
