Last week the boys and I bought a couple of pumpkins at the store and we were finally able to get them put together. This was the first time either one of them have done this and it was really funny watching them try to clean them out. Both of them were kind of grossed out with that part. I ended up having to finish cleaning them out so I could save the seeds to roast later. The yard got scattered with pumpkin pulp the boys wanted to see how far it would go. After they were good and cleaned out it was time to decorate. Last year I bought a couple of kits that had been clearanced down to a dollar after halloween. If you remember doing the Lite-Brite things as kids, the kits are kind of like that. They are plastic pegs that you punch into the pumpkin and then you place a battery powered light inside the pumpkin to light up the pegs. Anyways, they turned out really cute except that the ears on Jacobs cat did not photograph very well lighting up in the dark. We all had a really good time and I did get some cute pictures.

Happy Birthday John !!!

Monday, October 27, 2008, My sweet husband turned 33! I was on the internet for about an hour trying to find an idea of what to do for a cake when it hit me, duh, a computer. I am not very good at doing the cake thing but I did want to try. I think it turned out OK and John said he really liked it, although I am not sure if he was just being nice. Tell me what you think!

Trees and Pets

Benjamin's Apple tree is doing quite well. John says we will have to move it in for the winter and I agree. He also says that we will have to cut about one foot off to trim it, that I am not so sure about. I know that you are supposed to prune them, but how much at one time? Well, here is an up to date picture so far of the apple tree.

On the pet note, we have a new one. On Wednesday of last week (10-08-08) there were three puppies that followed their mother to the school. The owners of the mother do not take care of her and this is at least her third set of puppies in a row. When I found out that the last set of puppies were killed because they could not get rid of them, I called John to see if we could have one, or all, of the puppies. I told him that one of the boy puppies looked like a dog we had previously owned. He agreed for us to have ONE.

The boys were so excited when they found out we were going to take him home. they could not believe that Dad had agreed to us having another dog. They decided to name him TIPPER because of the white tips on his tail, paws, and nose.

Here are a couple of pictures of the boys with our other dog, Boots.

The Pentecostals have invaded the City of Cullman, Alabama. I am very happy to say that our OFFICIAL MOVE was on MY BIRTHDAY, September 21, 2008. We started off our Sunday morning service at our now "OLD" church to have morning service there and was going to have evening service at the "NEW" church. As the service progressed Bro. Wilbanks, our Pastor, decided that we should just load up in our cars and create a convoy to the new church, so that is just what we did. Here are some pictures.

Everyone was so HAPPY to be there. After we all arrived, Bro. Greg Wilbanks preached a wonderful service and for the Evening service Evangelist Bro. Greg Godwin was there to top it all off. My birthday was filled with such memories I could not think of a better way to remember the day I turned 30 yrs old.
