So Sunday we carved our pumpkins. It was nothing real spectacular since we were missing our carving buddies (Jaylynn and her family). We thought, a little too late, that we should have done it over the web cam. Oh well, maybe next time.

Randy's puppy

Spencer's Jack-o-Lantern (Regan actually cut it out)

Regan's horse (I think Randy did all of the cutting on this one)

Melanie's polar bears (it didn't turn out as well as I would have liked)
We even saved a bunch of the seeds and toasted them. Mmmmm

Today we woke up to snow and the power out. It went off around 6:15 this morning so I got up and showered and got the kids up with a flashlight. The kids thought that was pretty cool. But one of our dumb dogs thinks it's fun to chase the light so everywhere I went there he was also. Then at breakfast I decided that since our pumpkins are sitting on the table that we would have a jack-o-lantern lit breakfast. It was kind of fun. As I went to leave to take Regan to school I realized that I couldn't get the garage open so I had to get Randy out of bed to help us. When I got back from dropping Regan off the power was still out. It finally came back on at 9:15. I used to love it when the power would go out growing up. Needless to say, I don't think I will ever out grow the thrill of of a power outage.

Figured it Out!!

I bet you thought I was out of the loop forever. I couldn't figure out how to update my blog for the longest time, but I'VE FIGURED IT OUT!!! Now hopefully I can find the time to post the happenings of our family more often. Here is just a quick update.

A lot has happened since my last post in APRIL! Regan has started school at a charter school called Hawthorn Academy. She loves it and is always excited to go.

Spencer turned 3 in August and is quite the "little man." He loves to play the Wii and is actually pretty good at it.
