Our pumpkin



The other night, we finally decided to carve our pumpkin that we purchased from Jackson's Orchard last week. I secretly had no idea how this was going to turn out. Last time that I carved a pumpkin was many years ago, Charli Beth has never helped with one and hates all things yucky feeling and smelly {she gags about everything. At times I have no idea whose child she is?} and well you never know about Mark. ha! Jk!

Let me first tell you, they did a wonderful job.

Yes, I did help out a little! I drew the face on the pumpkin, but it wasn't the most perfect face.

I am still amazed at how much she loved pulling the seeds out! She loved throwing them and making a mess too. I also got her to take a bite of the pumpkin {Yes, I am a mean Mama!}

Brody as Nemo - His costume was a huge hit, since it's little tail would wiggle as he walked!

Charli Beth cheated! JK! She did get the nose at the right place!

Pumpkin decorating

Don't you love how she knew the pumpkin needed a bow? {it was suppose to be a bow-tie} Oh and the dots are freckles?

Now you guys can just get ready for my picture overload of Halloween night! lol. But there may not be very many since I seen the temperature for Saturday is suppose to only be 46! What? That is horrible news for all our ghost and goblins. Hopefully that temp will go way up before then!

UPDATE: Temperature for Saturday is now 65, woohoo!!

Hair Help?!?

Oh my...please pay no attention to my chubby cheeks!

I am in need of hair advice, once again. As you can see mine is a total mess of chaos and I have no idea what to do with it anymore. I flipped it out this weekend and got a few compliments on it so I figured I would try it again today...{it's so darn heavy this way}. I've asked before and a lot of people thought that I should cut it back off short, but my cheeks are so "chubby" now I don't think it would look right. Any suggestions on what I could do to it with a budget? Ah, and I forgot that my roots are awful right now so *try* not to pay attention to that either, I really need to make the time to get my hair d-o-n-e. Lol, there is so much I could say bad about pictures of me, but I'll hush for now ;o)

Monster Mash

The party decor & food

Align Center

My camera isn't working the best and I don't have photoshop or anything really enhance colors in the photos (although I dream about the day that I have an awesome camera! lol) The pumpkins were amazing, thanks to my cousin Drew. He has an incredible talent with decorating and designing. So does my Mom, if it weren't for her Charli parties wouldn't be half of what they are!
I'll post pictures of the games and the kids all dressed up tomorrow night!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Jackson's Orchard

Yesterday after ballet practice we met up with Mark and headed over to Jackson's Orchard, which we all know is one of my favorite places! We knew heading there the hayrides and petting zoo would not be open since it was not a weekend but with my work schedule and the Halloween party tomorrow afternoon we decided to go ahead. Nevertheless Charli Beth had a blast on the slides and watching her come down them was worth battling two preschool classes and their parents for the fun ride down.

No, she wasn't very lady like coming down the slides in a skirt..what was I thinking making the wild child wear that thing? Ha!

After the battle of the slides with the kids she moved on to a smaller slide.

You would think that I was a horrible Momma for not catching her, but I was to busy taking pictures (as always)! Then she went to see how tall she is (not sure if every child is obsessed with how tall they are...but mine is!)
"I'm HOW tall?!"
and more playing...

We then took a break for a fried apple pie with ice cream, carmel sundae and a kiddy cone for Charli Beth. After that we picked out our pumpkin to carve then headed out. Maybe we'll be able to hit up the hayrides the last weekend of October. Our 2nd Halloween Party for the kids is tomorrow and we're excepting over 20 kiddos and their parents. I'm very excited, my Mom has put a lot of hard work into making this the best party possible so I better get to work on treats and taking balloons to be aired up!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
