Halloween Part 1

Due to photo demand, here are a couple pictures of pumpkin #1 – the BNC W3 pumpkin.  There were a few incidents, so it’s not as detailed as I wanted, but I am happy with it. =) My camera has been having technical difficulties, needless to say it’s not taking the greatest pictures.  Plus, it’s kinda hard to photograph a pumpkin and do it justice.  Also, excuse the shine, I scrubed the front to get the Vaseline off, but it is still shiny.  Pumpkin #2 should be Spongebob, but we’ll see.  I haven’t really started that one because the kids are out of school today, so my carving time has been limited…tonight isn’t good either since we have the remaining 2 parent/teacher conferences. UGH!

A New Beginning…

Okay, well not exactly a new beginning, but I am beginning something new.  Well….not exactly new…I guess I should say beginning again.  I am trying to get my house in some sort of order so I am starting up the Flylady program again.  For those of you who have never heard of it, check it out at It is awesome.  Anyways, aside from that, we started the Total Money Makeover this month, and so far it is going quite well.  Gas prices going down have helped us considerably in our budget which is a huge blessing for us since I have to fill up my gas guzzler every week.

Oh, something that is a new beginning…my dad got married this weekend.  We had a great time…saw lots of people I hadn’t seen in at least 10 years.  It’s amazing how fast time goes.  The actual wedding took maybe 30 seconds.  I taped it, so when I upload it I will check for an exact time.  Our truck got stuck in the gravel, and we had to be pulled out by a guy who just moved to the area from Fresno, CA…very nice guy.  At the reception, they set up a stage and played music – Trinity actually got on stage and sang for everyone.  I was so proud of her.  She is very excited that I will be posting her video on youtube…she wants to be famous.  
Okay, enough stalling…I actually have to get off here so I can start my something new.  I plan on working on uploading pictures this week, so I will be posting again soon. =)
