My Pumpkins

We found an idea in Family Fun magazine for a different way to decorate our pumpkin this year. Our pumpkin was so big that instead of looking for faces in magazines we found them on Google Images so that we could make them as large as we wanted. It turned out great and we can still use the pumpkin to decorate for Thanksgiving. I'm not sure it was as fun for the kids because there was really no mess.

RSC Fall Festival

The kids got to wear their costumes a little early for the Fall Festival at church.

Aren't they adorable?

On Your Mark, Get Set...


Wes ran in his first official race today. The kids and I cheered him on at Long Hunter State Park as over 200 people ran a 5 mile trail run. Some of them were dressed in Halloween costumes. We saw a couple of friends of ours that run a lot. Wes did great. We were so proud of him.

Hair Gone Wild

Last week I blogged about the hair cut I had given Reed and his "Hairy Head" he was growing in a pot. Both heads are growing some wild hair.

Out with the old, in with the ....

...used but new to us.
Our Windstar got sick. The prognosis was not good. Rather than spend more than it was worth for the repairs we decided to get another van. Our last trip with the old van was a nice weekend at Montgomery Bell State Park. We prayed the van would get us there and back again without any problems. That prayer sounded something like this, "Lord please protect us from our stupidity." He did.

We bought a Honda Odyssey. Wes put a hitch on it and we will now be towing our Thompson Turtle with the Honda. Can't wait.

Hairy Head

Reed doesn't have much hair on his head. Yes, his mommy cut it with the clippers. I just wanted to see what it would look like. It will grow back! Reed is pretty good at growing things as you can see from his "Hairy Head" he brought home from school. This was just seed a week ago. Maybe Reed's hair will only take a week to get back to normal. I still think he's adorable.

It's Pumpkin Time!

About this time every year we make our way over to Walden Farm to look at pumpkins, pet the farm animals, play in the hay maze and lots of other fun things.

We always see someone we know there. This time we bumped into some good friends of ours and the girls had their picture made together.
