We went to the pumpkin patch to pick out our victim to be carved up. Three unsuspecting pumpkins became our prey and fell into our hands. We took a hay ride out to the field witch was fun, Kaelynn and I got to drive the tractor. We lucked out that the weather has been so nice it wasn't muddy. Poor Jared had a hurt foot and had to hobble around the field carrying our pumpkins. I picked out a nice big heavy one that I couldn't carry myself. Poor guy but he was a good sport. We brought the pumpkins home and carved them up. We gave Kaelynn a sharpy and had her draw what she wanted cut out. It was quite a mess but Jared did a good job not to destroy what she colored. My favorite part though is the after math of the carving when we bake and then eat the seeds. Yummy!
Well deer and elk season kick off in October. We took our camp trailer up and parked for 10 days. We had a great time even though we didn't see a darn thing. Figures when season is closed they are everywhere and now they are all in hiding. We did get a lot of R and R as you can see here. We thought it would be fun to get a hammock. Neither of us had ever used one and when we hung it and Jared got in his bum touched the ground. Kaelynn had a blast. She was always asking to go for a ride on the 4-wheeler even though it was so cold in 5th gear wide open she kept saying faster, faster! I wish I could have got a picture though of all three of us crammed on it. Me with my butt hanging off the back. I'm sure it was a site to see.
We are proud to say we will be expecting a bouncing baby boy in February. Kaelynn was hoping for a sister. I had to explain to her several times that we can't pick, its whatever Heavenly Father gives us. She sighs and states," well I guess a brother will be ok." She does want to help pick the name and likes "Bongo" I'm not quite sure if that one will work, maybe a nick name? Hears to cute kids!
We had a very sad thing happen this summer. Our dog for almost 9 years had to be put down. He, I'm sad to say bit Kaelynn on the hand. She wasn't hurt too bad just mostly scared as were we when we heard a snarl and a scream from the back seat of the car. He is now in heaven swimming and chasing as many birds as he wants to. I love my husband so much he is such a strong man and it broke mine and his heart to do what had to be done. He took him out to his parents farm and buried him. It was the hardest thing I think he has ever done. Later that night when we were both in bed he says to me that he lost one of his best friends that day. Dog truly are mans best friend. They love you no matter what. Pawsy we miss you!

So happy birthday to Kaelynn. I still can't believe she is 3 years old! So we asked her what she wanted for her birthday?Presents! and then she gave us a look like we were dumb. Go figure. She did give more details at a later date of princess stuff. She also wanted a princess party because she saw this great cake at Safeway. So I asked the price, it was a $40 cake. So I improvised and ordered online a cake topper set for $15 and made my own
cake. Its not as fancy as the stores but she's 3 and it tasted good. I was proud of myself, I think I want to take a cake decorating class. She got some really fun stuff. The best was the "Mud Pie Making Station." As you can see she had fun with it.
