So Halloween is upon us. We decided to tackle a pumpkin one night when graham was asleep. Luke wouldn't stick his hand in the pumpkin to pull out any seeds but did enjoy using a spoon to try to get out some stuff. He then decorated it with stickers and a marker as Joe spent hours carving out Scooby doo! It looked out I know the picture doesn't do it justice. We then took the boys to our neighbors tonight for Harrisville's halloween-Luke was a kangaroo, but as we were putting on the costume he informed us he wanted to be a cowboy. Graham was content to be a giraffe, even though he was sick with a fever!

The Box

We got a upright freezer for our basement to put some extra stuff in, especially in case some one shoots bambi, and Luke decided we should make it his house. So Mom used her cardboard art skills and

we have a house with 2 doors, 2 windows and 2 skylights.

boo-boo's and stickers

Luke is convinced that stickers help his boo-boo's. Tonight when I was at work I guess he bumped his head. So I come home and find all of my guys with stickers on their forehead. Obviously everyone needed a sticker to help with all of the boo-boo's.

Driveway Done

We finally got our driveway paved this week. With winter coming, it was going to be a big mess with just gravel.

Bye Bye Pacey

For those of you who know Luke-you know he loves his pacey. He always has since he was an infant, even at 1 week old he was sucking the life out of his pacey. It was probably a year ago that we just started giving it to him at nap time and at bedtime. He would often say he wanted to go Pacey-night-night. We of course, went with this idea and also called it pacey-night-night. Just recently we were talking of how to get rid of the pacey. We had heard of different people taking the paceys to a toy store and turning it in for a toy or something. So we had started talking about Lukes "special present", that he would get if he gave up his pacey (or also if he started to go potty on the potty, we weren't picky about which one). So this weekend I found a stuffed Mickey. He has lately been caring around his "tiger"and "elephant" and has been sleeping with all the stuffed animals he owns (about 20) in his bed. So I thought a stuffed Mickey might be just the thing, as he is a huge Mickey fan. So we went today and bought Mickey and Luke loved it and told joe when he got home that he got a special present. So tonight when Joe put him to bed, he asked for his pacey, but Joe said no you have Mickey, and he seemed ok. So night one down-no pacey, we will see if that continues!!!!!

wildlife camera

Now that deer season is around the corner, I set up my wildlife cam in the woods behind our house. The biggest deer I saw has been an 8 pointer, but I saw this 10 pointer last night.
