carving a pumpkin

audrey helped me get all the guts and seeds out (we will roast the seeds later, hopefully i will not eat them all, they are so good.) she didnt want to get her hands dirty so i, being a good mom made her get dirty. then i used a template that disney had for free a few years back and about 1 hour later after poking holes and sawing the openings i was done. i messed up on the headband part alittle and had to use toothpicks to hold it together. oh well. i still think i did a decent job.

in regards to the end

in looking at what the end of the world will be like before Jesus comes for us we should:

"keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:36)

pumpkin patch or something like that

we went to the pumpkin patch last weekend and it was fun. alittle more crowded than i would have liked it. one of my facebook friends described the sort of pumpkin patch we went to quite accurately i thought "more like a pumpkin lot" you get to pick out your pumpkin like a car as they are all lined up waiting for you.

here are some cute pictures. i love those cut-out things. they make me laugh every time.

more stuff

i added some fabric to a too-short dress for audrey.
i finished her costume for halloween.
and i made her a hopscotch blanket. the girl is obsessed with hopscotch. not the actual game but jumping on or around it.

my first shiner

last friday audrey and i went to chuck e cheese with some friends. the nite was fun and audrey even received a heart necklace.
all i got was my first shiner. the story behind it - audrey got excited at the sidewinder game and jumped up at the precise moment that i was bending down to tell her something and we collided.

whats going to happen at the end?

my church has been talking alot about the end of the world this summer and it has really gotten me to think about it. at first i felt really overwhelmed with it all. i mean an increase in wars, plagues, famines, violent storms and persecution - who wants that? its so easy to live in our easy lives and love Jesus and not think about times getting more difficult. but at some point Jesus is coming back for us and things will get rough. so after much prayer and thought i have decided i want to be ready. i want to know God's word so well that i can not be deceived. i want to love Jesus more than anything so i can stand up for Him no matter what.
