Pumpkin Carving

Michael and I took the boys outside on Sunday to carve pumpkins. Vaiden was really excited about doing this little project!! That excitment lasted just a couple of minutes and Michael and I were left to do it all. Vaiden chose an "easy" carving sketch from a carving book. It was a spider web with a spider at the bottom. It looked easy enough, but once we got started, it ended up taking forever!! The boys did enjoy making faces on their pumpkins with I guess I should invest in those again for next year!! Overall, it was a lot of fun and since the weather was so nice, it made the day that much more fun!!

Ole Miss vs. Arkansas

We had a great day in Oxford on Saturday!! The weather was great football weather and the game was early, so we got to "play" in the Grove literally all day. We were all exhausted at the end of the day!! The Rebels won and played great, so that made the day that much better!! Hotty Toddy Rebels!!
