Pumpkin Carving!!!

My husband (and his very artistic self) helped the Hall kids carve a pumpkin. This is is his first attempt at carving pumpkins. After a few drafts on paper they came up with this fabulous pumpkin face. So excited that fall is here, the cool weather is a nice change and reminds me that the holidays are right around the corner - AAAAHHHHHH!!! Ok maybe fall isn't so great. JUST KIDDING. I am looking forward to spending time with friends and family and am blessed with everyday God gives me here on this earth.
Enjoy the pictures.

OH DEAR!!!!!

Oh Dear (rather, Deer) is right. So after our fabulous trip to Winston-Salem, we ended up right back there 2 weeks later to be with my father-in-law as he had to be in the hospital for a few days (he's fine by the way). Well our first evening there we were going to spend the night with some friends there in town, and I had a chance encounter with a deer. Suffice to say from the picture - the deer won. As my husband said "Honey, you did not hit the deer, the deer hit you". Well, I am fine, my car is a little worse for the wear but in the shop getting all "gussied up". The deer even walked away with only a scratch. And a word to the wise - be careful driving around back roads at night!

Birthday Trip!

Well my seet husband turned 34 this month and we wen to the Dixie classic fiar in Winston-Salem. We love Winston and who can resist all the yummy food at the fair. And as fate would have it the Stanley cup was there and I got my picture with it. It was so cool, we showed up early just to make sure we knew where to find it and low and behold (light shinning down from "above" here) there was the official stanley cup man, his white gloves and a rather large blue case (stanley cup enclosed). They pulled it out and started forming a line and allowed people to go a head and get their pictures taken. So Michael and I waited all of 5 minutes and then stood inches from "the cup" and had our picture taken. I'm thinking CHRISTMAS CARD!!! Anyway, we had a nice weekend and most of all I got to pamper my wonderful husband and spend time with him. I must say, I am one blessed woman and God was gracious when He brought Michael and I together. Happy Birthday Darling!!!

Good friends fun weekends

We have had some busy weekends the past few weekends, but it has been fun. Two weeks ago we had some friends come up from Hickory with thier kids and amazingly enough we fit 4 adults 3 teenagers and 6yr old in our house - not too shabby. There are some pics of us playing in our back yard and enjoying a nice fall evening. The following weekend we went with some friends to Wrightsville beach, NC for the day on Saturday. We went with them and thier two kids - it was a beautiful day, 76 and sunny. We came across this fabulous burger joint and had our fill of burgers, fries and milkshakes - YUMMO (as Rachel Ray would say). Anyway, goodtimes were had by all. Sorry about the delay in postings enjoy the pictures and now that I have my own laptop, hopefully there will be more post to come.
