I am so impatient, when it comes to things like, poking holes through a pumpkin carving stencil after I just gutted and scraped the insides out and then have to carve the dang thing after the stenciling...ya right!!! So not for me!!! I will leave that to Chad...BUT it definitely shows in the results :) I freehanded my spider and he took the time to make an amazing creation!!! We couldn't quite keep the kids busy enough...Alyssa kept sneaking over for a stab at the pumpkins!!!

Halloween wouldn't be complete for our family without some pumpkin carving!!! Chad is an amazing pumpkin carver and is still at work so he won't start his tonight, and I will make my meek attempt at pretending I know what I am doing and still end up with the triangle eyes and nose and 3 tooth mouth...it's a classic!

We have the biggest tree in our backyard that has more leaves than any other tree in the whole wide world...at least that is how it feels when your the one raking them up!!! Luckily, because of all the leaves we can make an awesome leaf pile, perfect for jumping!!!

Alyssa has been looking forward to this day all month!!!! Her Halloween party at her dance class!! She got to bring a little treat for everyone in her class, we made Ghost suckers that looked a little like this...
But her favorite part was being able to wear her costume to class!!! Her little cousin Haylie is in her class too so they were very excited to be in costume !!! Here is our very cute witch with her black cat :)

7:02 am I went into Austin's room to get him up for school. He sleeps on the top bunk of the bunk beds. He sits up in bed if he hears me come in, and when he hasn't gotten enough sleep he will sit up and then scoot the furthest away from the edge of the bed making it hard for me to get him! Well this morning was one of those days but then I whispered "Austin, it's snowing" he popped right up and went to look out the window, he was so excited!!! When the time to pick Austin up from school the snow had all melted and there wasn't any snow on the ground. I knew he would be upset...luckily on our way home there was a little mini blizzard and there were a few inches on the ground...Alyssa was just as excited and wanted to go play too!!! They quickly ate their lunch and headed outside!!! They made snow angels and at some snow too!!! "but not the dirty kind" Alyssa said....I of course was the one that made them come inside, they love it out there!!! Now the snow is starting to melt once again...they act like I am making it happen...Alyssa is in her room crying about it right now, I know she is just tired, but why do I feel bad about something I can't control??? Austin was okay with it once I explained to him that it's a good thing that it's melting now, so he can show off his costume on Halloween...wish me luck I am going to try to explain it to Alyssa....

You know when you decide okay, today is the day that I am going to start writing in my journal and I am going to write every night and nothing is going to stop me, and then your next entries are saying "sorry it's been so long" or " from now on I am writing every night" and then this vicious cycle keeps going round and round? Well I am not going to make apologies or make empty promises that I don't know if I can keep, all I will say is I will try to do better at keeping this blog afloat!
ringing the doorbell....
RAAAAARRRR!!!! Judging by the look on dad's face I think he scared him!!!!!
