It was time to carve the pumpkins! Chris came over and we had a lot of fun. I came up with a better way to scrape the guts out. I used a clay carving tool. Haha It was so much easier. I decided to do an Owl and Chris did Jack Skellington.

I spent the day down in Oak Creek at the boys house. I almost forgot to take a picture. I set it up with the timer and just as it went off KC came over to have me pet him. Silly Kitty. I wore black because FHE was playing Ghost in the graveyard at church. I had a hard time running but it was still fun.

This was the last day with Liz and Emmitt here. They flew home this morning. I just adore this little cutie. We all went out to dinner to celebrate Dad's birthday from last month. We went to Gyros West. I had pancakes! I didn't even know they had pancakes. Behind me is the wreath I made the other day.

Today the weather got cooler so I pulled out my argyle sweater. We went to a relief society activity and made witch shoes. They also did a demo on how to make cake pops. It was a lot of fun. I talked to this woman Christa and her friend Jenny. They are super hilarious. I really enjoyed myself. Dad stayed home with Emmitt so when we got back Liz and I woke him up and changed him then Liz fed him and put him back to sleep.

Yesterday.... was a really long day. All three of the boys I was watching had meltdowns. Good times. Normal for the 18 mo old but not the 4 or 6 year old. Oh well. Usually I only have the two younger ones from 8 to 4 but I was with them from 7:30-6:30. Which meant I was so tired and hungry when I got home. This was shortly after I inhaled my dinner. :)
First of all... How cute am I? Mason & I painted today. He took a white pumpkin and made it orange and green. I made an argyle one! I like the way it turned out. Took a little longer than expected.... as usual, because of drying time. I am still working on the other ones in this soon to be set.
The 9th was sunday. I wanted to be comfy at church so I opted to wear my favorite white skirt with my brown Steve Madden shoes. Took this after I got home from church but before we went to the Brukl's house to celebrate Kyle's 9th Birthday with chocolate bunt cake. Mmmm
We went down to Chicago to have lunch with Judy and Becca and then dinner with Grandma Gierke. Emmitt was pretty good, considering he didn't get a decent nap and had to ride in the car so much. I almost didn't go, but there isn't a whole lot I wouldn't do for my little Emmitt Fou Fou. It was good day. We took our picture at Grandma Gierke's house.
Such a fun day! We went to the Bear Den Zoo out in Waterford. We saw all kinds of animals; a Bear, tiger, tortoises, a lemur, a Llama, goats (that we got to pet), and birds. We got to hold baby chickens, and Bunnies, and kittens. When we petted the goats one bit my elbow, it was super funny cause it didn't hurt. Gavin scraped his knee but recovered pretty well. Mason had fun with his new friend Evan. We also got to go on a Hay ride and pick out pumpkins. It was such a great day I might have to post more on it later.
Tried out a new outfit combo here. I paired my brown tank with a tank top shirt. It only goes down a little way but makes any tank modest. I like this tan short sleeved one. As you may notice I am still wearing t-shirts in October, thats because its been super warm. You will see...
If I look a little crazy in this picture its probably because I just got done singing a the funeral of a woman I didn't even know. It went well. Liz and I sang Be Still My Soul. We took all the little boys with us. Mom and a lady at the funeral home watched them while we sang. Then we left.
I decided that I want to post a picture of myself everyday in the month of October. Now of course the first day of the month... I forgot. haha. I am a genius. :) But I was wearing my blue American Eagle t-shirt... I might take a pic in it to put on here. We'll see. It was a pretty chill day watching General Conference on TV at my house.
Alright time to play catchup:
2nd - I went to conference down at the Grams house in Eagle Wisconsin. I took a lot of pictures and had a lot of fun. We even found a frog that let me take a really close up picture of it. Took this photo by the pumpkins Liz and I got the Friday before. I really love this tank top, Liz gave it to me. I love Paisleys, so fun.
