if we didn't live in the city i would make this a reality.
is this not the best pumpkin carving you have ever seen??
it came from here. i would love to make this happen in the future.

so this is the first pumpkin i have carved yet this halloween.
i am pleased with how it turned out and will carve two more before

little love..

in all my years of watching kiddos she takes the cake.
she is my girl.
she was such a toughie but of all the kids outside my family
 she loves me the mostest.
look at this face.
so much love. she waits for me everyday even when i dont go to her house.
she looks for my car and runs to me when i walk in.
 i think she will always be tough and strong and i will always remember her.

i never knew a tiny little person could love me more than the others in my past.
i was wrong and here she is little miss love.

oh man.
i forgot all about posting this.
i made this coat rack/backdoor hanger.
we really needed something to hang stuff from by the backdoor.

so i dreamed this up.
i stained this long piece of wood and cut up some goats and donkeys.
spray painted those goats and donkeys bright fun colors.
then glued their fronts and butts to the piece of wood.
then rigged it up with fancy green ribbon.

i love this project.
i love how it turned out.
i love how we use it and it has a function.
there's not much better!

they were $1 each.
