Pumpkin Carving

Carving pumpkins is something I've done since I was a little girl. And since being married I have kept on with that tradition. My husband and I like to have a new challenge every year. Last year we did more of a simple pumpkin carving, well this year we definitely gave ourselves a challenge.

A Goat Named Paco!

That's right, a goat who is named Paco. At school (where I work) we had a special visit from Paco who just so happens to be a goat. And what letter does goat start with? The letter G. The whole reason Paco came to visit was because we are learning the letter G this week.
The kids loved it. They tried feeding him corn but he wasn't wanting to eat anything. Especially when kids were swarming him. He wasn't used to a big crowd like that. But he did great.
Jeremy brought Ammo out to meet Paco and Ammo was so mellow. I think he was more curious than anything else.

They were sniffing each other, it was adorable.

All in all the kids loved Paco the goat.


An Apple Day...

Keeps the doctor away.
Especially if you have an apple this size, it's HUGE! I haven't eatin it yet, but I will soon. Not sure if I'll be able to it in one setting, but I will eat it... I will.

Look I even took a picture of my HUGE apple next to a normal sized apple for you to compare the sizes. CRAZY huh!

I'll let you know if my mutant of an apple was good or not. :P


Who's getting married?

Not me... I'm already married! :)
My best friend is getting married. She's been dating her boyfriend for 3 years now and they are planning a July wedding. I'm so excited for her. She is going to make a beautiful bride and excellent wife. Her fiance is actually a friend of mine and my husbands. We've known each other for a long time. My husband and him are childhood friends. So thats fun!

I was honored when Brittney, my friend who is getting married, asked me if I would be her Maid of honor. Although I'm married technically I should be called the Matron of honor I would rather be called the Maid of honor. Matron of honor sounds like I'm supposed to be old.
From here on out I'm the Maid of honor.

This past weekend we went DRESS SHOPPING. One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding, finding THE dress. I won't get into anymore details about THE dress because it's a surprise. BUT, here are a few photos of our exciting day.

Waiting patiently for Britt's consultant.

The dress I would have chose if I found it when I was getting married. :P

We had to wear these booties in the dress shop or take our shoes off and carry them in plastic bags. Just so if the dress got stepped on it didn't get dirty.

Dresses galore


Looking at dresses. After sifting through all these dresses she found the perfect one. And she can't wait to walk down the aisle to her future husband.

Congratulations Brittney & Tim.

“I have noticed that what cats most appreciate in a human being is not the ability to produce food, which they take for granted - but his or her entertainment value”

Better late than never, RIGHT?

Have a great week!


Beautiful SKY

I love fall. I love colors. I love the moon. I love the night sky. I love when in the fall the sky is shaded with so many colors and the moon is glowing bright and high. It's awesome. And beautiful to look at.

Beautiful sky

I went out with a friend to take pictures and we were out in this field and the night sky was closing in on us and we couldn't help but gaze and admire the beautiful night sky. it was gorgeous! I couldn't believe all the colors.

Enjoy it!


A Bugs Life!

Ever thought of what it might be like to be a bug? A small tiny bug. What about a small tiny bug that has been captured by tiny hands. Sometimes when we're outside playing and the kids come up to me with their hands closed together I say, "What's in your hand?" A smile spreads across their face as they open their hands and show me whats in their hand, A BUG! Most times they ask me what kind of bug it is they captured, or they tell me. But 8 times out of 10 the bug is DEAD. Like this dragon fly...

He looks alive, but he's not.

See the concern in her face? Yeah me neither. :)

On a totally different note... have you ever seen the movie A Bugs Life?

When my little brother was two he would only watch that movie. We had to go out and buy another VHS of that movie because it wouldn't work right anymore. VHS... Crazy... you don't see VHS anywhere anymore. I had a little kid tell me about a moivie that was coming out. I said to him, "Oh it's coming out on VHS." He said, "What's VHS?" I had to correct myself and say, "I mean DVD." Oh, how times have changed.

While you are doing your normal daily routine think about those bugs and about what it would feel to have a bugs life. :)



Photobooth with yourself! Yeah, everyone should do that. :)


It's so much fun!!!!

For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad."

I love Fall sunsets. When the sun hits those red leaves it looks like the trees are on fire. It's amazing. I can't wait to capture more of this beautiful Fall season. :)

Enjoy! And take every bit of the fall season in. :)
