Pumpkins

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.

Hi Mel. I haven't checked you blog in a long time. I guess I thought you were done with it. Glad you're not! Reagan looks so cute in her uniform. My ids are at a charter school too. We love it. I especially love the uniforms and how there is NO FIGHTING over clothes in the morning. Everything matches! Keep it updated. I loving seeing your pictures!
