Pumpkin carving and a trip to Hee Haw's Farm

Last weekend we went down to Kaylynn's house to get a couple of pumpkins... it was a bit early to carve them so we waited till this weekend. I had been sick on Thursday and Friday but carving pumpkins was still fun. (Thanks Kaylynn for the pumpkins! they are awesome and the little ones are so cute!)I decided to just do stars... it will look pretty cool with a light in it...
Brett did a Roclistic Pumpkin....
And here is my itty bitty one...

On Saturday night, I was feeling better so we decided to have date night and go to Hee Haw's farm. We went last year and it was so fun- we had to go again. There was a lot of really fun activities to do.. we did not do the corn maze-- i wasnt sure if I was up to that much walking.

There was a corn box... which was cool and I made Brett sit in it and then covered him with corn.. he is such a good sport..

We went inside this little kid hauted house... it was a big blow up house that had 'things' hanging from the ceiling and out of the walls...

Here is the big slide.. you had to put your legs into a potatoe sack and the slide kinda hurt my butt...

Leroy is this giant pig that we made friends with last year... he was asleep and I touched his nose.

This guy that was there was carving this into a pumpkin... it was so cool. He had all kinds of tools that he was using...

Then we went on a hayride through the pumpkin patch and around the corn and the sunset was beautiful..
So It was really fun!

Swingin' on a Rainbow

So there are a few things I can update on...
Yesterday I saw the biggest brightest rainbow I have seen in a long time. I saw it our my window and I even went out in the pouring rain to take this picture.

Brett shaved his mustache... well.. what he could grow of one. Haha. I tried not to give him too much crap about it- I think it made him feel all grown up that he could actually grow one. I didnt really get a picture of it but you can kindof see it in this picture. His hair isnt too long that he needs to get it cut.. or he would have used that excuse to make me cut it.

He has a job interview tomorrow so he had to shave it all off. Yes we are officially job hunting. Brett is graduating in December! Yeah! It makes me pretty happy! So who knows where and what we will end up doing.... But hopefully our plans will be finalized by November sometime.

More Baby News!! My brother Gordon and sister in law Leona and expecting thier first baby. Those two will make fantastic parents. They got married in August and that baby is one lucky boy or girl!

And last of all.. as you all already saw... I gave myself a blog facelift... and I love it!

Montana trip

So Brett, Alyssa, Kellen and I all went to Montana for the weekend to see Macy. We left on Thursday around 3 and got there about midnight. A huge storm had started by the time we got there. We checked in to our hotel and went to bed to wake up to this. .... its pretty yeah but it was also OCTOBER 9th!!!Macy's team had games on Friday and Saturday nights which we went to. Macy is a Red Shirt this year. She had a concussion at the start of the season and by the time she was ready to play she had missed a lot of games and her and her coach thought it was best if she red shirt the season. So she didnt play but we watched her team. They lost both nights- the first night they went to 5 and barely lost to a good undefeated team and the second night they got slaughtered by a really bad team. They are a pretty inconsistant team but Macy did good warming up... haha

Macy didnt have a ton of time to spend with us because of team stuff and school stuff but we did get to see her cute apartment and hang out there on Saturday. The boys just sat in the front room watching football all morning.

We left early on Sunday morning around 10 and got home about 6. I feel like I need a weekend to recover from the trip already. I was feeling sick all weekend so that part wasnt fun but I am really glad we went. It was a good time and it will be the last time I see Mace before Christmas since I will be out of town for Thanksgiving. Sad :(

The many lengths of hair

Brett really likes his hair short.... i say it is purely for the reason that it is easier.... lazy bum! I happen to like it long (#5 length). #6 is a bit too long... plus we were in mexico and it was so curly fromt he humidity. I buzzed it really really short a couple of months ago. It is getting a bit longer finally. for some lost bet or something that i cant remember, I am not cutting his hair until February. So what is your opinion? #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6

Big Girl Bed

I have not been taking a lot of pictures lately... Probably
because my life is a bit uneventful at the moment. But here are the pictures from the last month.
Here are a couple pictures from when Nate was home... He had to have surgery to take out his appendix so he was home for a week from the MTC.

I think this was the same day-- Brett was tired and fell asleep in Brooke's big girl bed... its not quite big enough to fit a 6'3 guy like Brett...
