Pumpkin Carving

Friday night, Steve and the kids spent the evening carving pumpkins.

Each of the kids had a pumpkin and a face they wanted carved, with the exception of Elsi, who had really no clue what was going on.

It was fun to watch the expressions on her face change as Dad went through the steps of carving the pumpkin.

Ready when you are...

Scooping the goop...



Time for Elsi's pumpkin...


Finishing touches...insert candle...light!

My pumpkin's hungry!

TA DA! :)

under where...?

I don't know about you, but where we come from, this is soooo the "in" thing. So much so, that I think I may sport this latest fashion to work on Monday.

Then again...maybe not:)

Happy Birthday Bobbie!

A couple of weekends ago, we spent a day celebrating Bobbie's birthday. It was a surprise party that had been planned and she had no clue:). We were happy to spend the afternoon with a very special lady.

Friday Night Fun

This past Friday night, we had a family fun night. It consisted of...

caring for dollies...

reading books about Jesus...

playing Wii...

and playing Wii as if you were truly playing the sport:)

I just love how Benny gets into the Wii games. He really puts his "all" into them.
