I'm So Lucky!!

I am up and not able to sleep so thought what better way to spend my time then tell y'all how much I love Jeff. Today was a rough day, I have got a nasty cold and it kept me in bed or on the couch all day long. Jeff was amazing and I am so grateful for him. Even though he was busy with school and work and just his life in general, he was wonderful to me and did so much today. I came downstairs this afternoon and he had cleaned the house and done ALL the laundry. I was so happy that is almost made me cry. Ok... I probably did cry a little bit but I am going to blame it on being pregnant and sick. He is just the most amazing man ever and I am so lucky that I found him. I am thankful for him everyday and thank my Heavenly Father for him every night but it is days like these that I just love him even more. Anyways... that is my little rant for the night... JEFF IS THE BEST AND I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!!

So... I decided that since we were going to take a quick trip out to Rosemary to see my sister and her kids for Halloween that we should also dress up. I worked until 7am on the 31 so came home and went to bed for a few hours. I got up and made a trip to Wal Mart and came home to put my Martha Stewart hat on. About an hour and a half later I had them done and in the car on my way to pick up jeff from work. It is amazing what you can do with a little foam, spray paint, and a glue gun. Although I had lots of burns and I was covered in a ton of foam... I felt like I would have made Martha proud.

When I pulled up to get jeff he looked in the back seat and wondered what I had done. He just laughed and told me I was a geek. It is ok though because he knew I was a geek before he married me and he still loves me.

We went and had a great time with the boys. While we were out collecting candy we went past the school park and my husband being the boy he is thought we should play. As you will see our costumes really made it hard to play but we laughed and had a good time! I just love him!!!!! He makes me laugh everyday which I love!!!

Here are a few pics of the evening, hopefully y'all enjoy them!!

Here we are with the three boys, Levi the chicken, Carter the frog and Zack Count Dracula. They are too cute!

Jeff and I trying to play on the swings but having a bit of a hard time. So fun though!!

Pumpkins and Taquitos

The other night we had a few people over for a bit of a shin-dig. The original plan was to go bowling but with the late start and lack of resevation at the alley, who knew that you need reservations for a bowling alley? So the idea was put forth that we go buy some pumpkins and carve jack-o-lanterns.

Off to the grocery store we went and searched through hundreds of huge orange gourds. Megan had given me the resposibility to find a pumpkin worthy of sitting on our porch for this spooky season that is upon us. Meanwhile, Megan went to go grab some snacks for the people that were now coming over. One of the things that she got were taquitos.

I love taquitos. Just look at them, what is bad about them ... nothing.

As important as taquitos seem to be and as important as they were that evening, they had to give way for the main event. Taquitos can not give you the awesome entertainment that scooping out Pumpkin guts can. And then when you add the sheer pleasure of carving holes into the face of a pumpkin a state of nirvana is nearly achieved.

This lady knows what I am talking about.

We had a lot of fun and our pumkins turn out, specifically into jack-o-lanterns. Check it out for yourself.

Happy Halloween!
