Pumpkin Carving

Well we didn't get to last year (just too busy)... so THIS year, Brew & I were determined to carve some pumpkins...

Brew went with a pattern that came with a pumpkin carving kit we bought

And as for me, I freehanded the flying WV.  (which actually wasn't too hard- it's just a bunch of straight lines ;))

And here are our final products... all lit up of course!

I'm looking forward to Halloween this year-- we'll actually have Trick-or-Treaters since we live in an addition with kids! :)  (Our old street we lived on the youngest kid was like 12-- besides that, nobody ventured down our long driveway!) 

Saturday is Trick-or-Treat, and also my mom's preschool's spaghetti dinner.  We are clogging there, then coming back to our house, where my inlaws will be descending and my nieces will be trick or treating here!  (Since they live in the middle of nowhere lol).  So expect some pics from this weekend :)

Also, there is  10 days till we find out if we're having a niece or nephew!  *Does excited dance*

Welcome to our new house!

So I thought I'd give you guys a quick picture tour of our house.  I plan on doing a video eventually-- only after everything gets put together.  That way I don't have to do an updated video and such.  So hope these pics satisfy you for now ;)  All of the outdoor shots were taken a couple months ago when we first looked at the house (hence the reason the leaves are still green!)

Come on in!

Here's the living room!

Duke & Earl say hi!
Down the hall, first bedroom on the left.  This used to be used as an office, but we are going to use it as a guest room.

Across the hall is the full bathroom!

Last room on the left, the second bedroom.  Excuse the mess-- we've stuffed it full of empty boxes lol.  This room will eventually be a nursery :)

Another view of bedroom 2
And the 3rd bedroom- the master bedroom! :)

The door you see goes to our half bath

My favorite part of my room- walk-in closet!

Our half bath
Back through the hall now, standing in the living room, view into the kitchen

Dining area of the kitchen.  Open door on the right goes downstairs.


Our backyard!  (Taken before we moved in- we are going to have it fenced in soon!)

Back of the house looking in the kitchen door.  (Taken before we moved in- unfortunately we don't have any patio furniture-- yet!)

Lets go back inside and downstairs now!

Now our favorite room of the house-- the family room (and also office)

I didn't include any indoor pics of the garage & laundry area just now.  Kinda still a mess!  lol. But this shot is from the driveway, taken just before we moved in.  (With our Jeep lol)  Laundry area is on the right, behind the man door.

Annnnnd that's all!

Hope you enjoyed the tour! :)

A wedding, a birthday, and a clogging show...

So this was my weekend...

Starting on Thursday I took my little niece Miryan to Build-a-Bear to make a bear for her 4th birthday.  She picked a purple kitty.

Then on Friday, I took the day off, and later that evening was Abby's rehearsal dinner!  (No pics from that unfortunately!)

And Saturday was a busy day!  First I got to see my friend Abby get hitched! :)  So glad I got to be a part of it!

Then later that evening, we went to celebrate my niece Miryan's 4th Birthday!

And finally on Sunday, I went to the Bob Evans Farm Festival for our clogging show!

A busy weekend, but a great one! :)

Still working on a post w/house pics-- it'll be up soon!
