We have a live bat! (10/5/11)

We have a live bat living in our outside shed.  Been living there for two or more weeks.  Really neat opportunity to share this unusual situation with the kids.

Delayed in posts/Office Setup

So, I have reviewed my blog over the past year. I was extremely dedicated until April and then I started dating BILLY. Then, we got married and then it was settle into married life which is something every night it seems. ESPECIALLY during Football Season!

BUT, I have posted more often than two of my brother's. Don't think I could ever keep up with SIL- The Rowdy Stroudy's. But today, even through MAJOR computer problems.... I finally feel like the computer area is setup.

It was dark but you get the idea. I love the board that holds all my pictures. It was given to me by my SIL Jacie last year for Christmas. It is suppose to be used to hold jewelry but since I travel so much and take my jewelry with me, I found a much better solution. Really like that I can change the picture out so often too.

Decorating for Halloween 2011

Carving the pumpkins was not the end, we also decorated. Had to make the candy corn trees again. Just this year we made three (3). My favorite is the fireplace with the cheesecloth web and black/purple spiders. Hard to see are the window decorations that the kids put in their room windows.

Looks kind spooky with the lights on at night.

Pumpkin Carving 2011

We carved pumpkins in an effort to get ready for Halloween. It was a fun Saturday afternoon activity.

IT was Gooey! The fun part for me was that I didn't have to get my hand dirty. Actually, after taking a few pictures, I left them alone to finish and they worked great together. I finally get a break with having to help out 100%. So, this is what it is like to have two children that can entertain and help each other!
