The other night Josh and I decided to carve pumpkins with the kids. We thought it would be fun for THEM! They didn't like the slimy mess. So Josh and I ended up doing all the work. But they enjoyed watching and seeing the finished productS!

Abby tried on one of Josh's work gloves to give it a second chance, but she still didn't want to do it.

I made Will put his hand in for a picture... haha, mean mommy. He made sure he got it in, but didn't touch anything!

Josh making silly faces as usual.

From left to right...

Will's pumpkin (tractor), my pumpkin (a 'G' for Gehman), Josh's (football with a wing, for the Eagles), and Abby's (bob the tomato, since she loves veggie tales)

Nate just watched everyone and ate some rice cereal :)! That was his second try with the cereal. He didn't care either way. He kind of just let it all come right back out.

October Winter

Yes, Snow in October. Josh told me that it hasn't snowed in October in over 5 years. Yippee.... or not really! haha. We have enjoyed playing in it today, but man it has come a little too soon this year.

This is what we woke up to this morning, and it has been snowing lightly ALL day!

Abby didn't know what to make of being bundled up. She didn't move much.... such a different pace for her! It was nice for a change :)!

Abby and her friend Kylee.

Will and his friend Cayden.

The kids had fun playing in the snow. I'm glad we had friends to play with because after taking FOREVER to get all their snow gear on, I didn't want them to want to come into the house after only a few minutes. Crazy weather, but they had a blast!

Long Overdue

I have been meaning to post pictures of the house w/ the rock gardens for a while! I wanted my mom to see how her plants blossomed, grew, and looked great! A few things died, but thats because the night she planted them, we had a late frost... go figure!

Corn stalks from our garden - and our painted pumpkins.

The flowers!

This back small rock bed we just put down. We haven't mulched it yet or added much to it.
Just showing our slow progress! Thanks for looking, now you can all come visit to see the real deal :)!
