OK, most of you know that I am graduating this year.
I have to do a power point about my life with pictures and music and was wondering if anyone had any song suggestions for the power point ?
I have not really thought about it much but thought that I would ask for suggestions and see what everyone said.


Here are some pics of the real way or at least the pizza hut way to take pizzas out of the oven.

The pro. Daddy had to get that for the one night a week that we have pizza.

Pumpkin Carving

It is pumpkin carving time, we actually carved the pumpkins last Friday but here are some pics of the event.
I had a lot of helpers Mommy had left with all the other kids to pick up produce so it was just Me, Joshua, Joy, and Jimmie carving pumpkin, of course then we had to cook and package and freeze all the pumpkin and cook the seeds. So here are some pics.

All my little helpers

working hard

our carved pumpkin, we decided that next year we might have to paint it maroon :)
Just so everyone knows there was no power tools used in the carving of this pumpkin.

Joshua's Deer

Sunday night Joshua and Daddy went hunting, in times past Joshua has ALWAYS shot a yearling and ALWAYS gut shot it which is not very cool if you are a hunter and not very fun for the gutter. So Joshua and Daddy came and back and Joshua announced that he shot a Doe, Go Joshua then he said and I shot it in the neck Way to go Joshua. We really are enjoying the deer meat.
Here are some pics of Joshua and his deer.

and some of the beautiful sunset.
