pumpkin carving fail

well we got around to carving our pumpkin alittle late this year.
and it was a fail. i just dont feel that the picture template had enough support to hold it at the bottom. it probably didnt help that i was rushing to get it done before audrey's bedtime so she could see it.


here is my fail. do you see in the small template above how there is little to hold it in the pumpkin?
we may have to carve a fun little face into the other side or something.

halloween 2014

this year we all dressed up. i had the kids costumes done the weekend before halloween and the idea for mine came late on wednesday, which was fine because i just had to gather all the pieces. we were working on jake's pretty late on thursday and some of friday.
audrey was captain marvel.
miles was buddy the t rex from dinosaur train.
i was a lalaloopsy doll.
and jake was wolverine (fighting with captain marvel of course)

pumpkin patch

i still love pumpkin patches.
we went to the one near the grocery store and they just happened to have a family fun day festival going on, so we went to that too. the kids got to play games, get candy, do a craft, and we all got free food. it was a fun morning.



oh yeah, they got their faces painted too. audrey had whiskers and miles had a pumpkin.

super student

miles received the super student award in his class for the first week of school. his teacher (who also had him last year) is so impressed with the progress he made over the summer. this boy is doing well with his colors, shapes and numbers. we are so proud of our super cute, getting smarter every day boy.

first day of school

yeah, we are back in school. the kids are loving it and loving their teachers.

Audrey's birthday

can my audrey really be 8? no way!
our little girl turned 8 this week. she is such a great big sister, always ready to help. she is also loving to read and as her mom and dad who love to read we are really enjoying that. we are thankful to God for all He has done for our audrey and that He will always be with her.
our families celebrated audrey with a frozen/dog themed party for her 8th. she wanted strawberry cake balls with blue icing and they turned out awesome, i used a from scratch strawberry cake recipe from pinterest and blue candy melts.

 i love that she was so excited about getting books

 her face on this is priceless
