The kids showed me

We carved pumpkins last night. I asked the kids what they wanted to carve. I told them that I was going to do a Nittany Lion on a white pumpkin. I did not do Penn State any justice, so I changed the lion into a bat. The kids had something else in mind. Hannah decided she would carve the cross into her pumpkin.

Ben told me he wanted to make a Christian pumpkin. I said what does a Christian pumpkin look like? He said that it had hearts for its eyes, a cross for his nose, and the Christian fish for its mouth.


The kids showed me.

Snow in October?






It really started coming down yesterday and didn't stop until after we went to bed. Thank goodness the snow didn't stick. We woke up with a couple of patches on the lawn. I quickly checked the weather to see what the forecast for Friday would be. I believe we are in the clear. I was having flashbacks to my childhood of trick-or-treating in a foot of snow with my moon boots. It was so tiring.

Go Nittany Lions!

We put Eve in her Penn State outfit for church this morning to rub in the win against Ohio State fans! We have a lot of Buckeyes in our congregations. Sorry guys!

Moms gone wild

My sister flew in on Friday night to Newark, NJ where we got a hotel and spent Friday and Saturday in the city. We had a great time. Jodi has never been to the city so we managed to hit all the tourist attractions in 2 days. She is going to email me a couple of pictures today or tomorrow since I forgot my memory chip in my camera. We had a blast. Two moms with three kids hit the streets of NYC without diapers, sippy cups, or gold fish in our purse. We had great weather and great conversation. We called are trip "Moms' gone wild"! I wouldn't say we were wild, but a trip to anywhere without kids is special.

I love Fall!

I have completely given up on this particular video, but let me brag for a moment about it. I have Eve reciting all of the books of the Old Testament. I guess it was a little too long for blogger. I will keep trying. I know that everybody loves Fall, but why can't we have it around for longer?

Having problems

I'm having serious problems right now with uploading videos. I've left it uploading for 2 hours and it still won't. Anybody know how to fix it?
Okay- nobody laugh at me. My computer training comes from grade school on the old Apple computers playing "word munch", "number munch", and "Oregon Trail"!

bedtime at the Garretts

Missing the South

What did you think of the debate last night? I thought McCain rocked it personally! Hannah came home off the bus yesterday and said "Obama for President" I choked on my coffee; "what did you say"? I told her that McCain needs to be our next president and the reasons why! The things she hears in school is ridiculous. Another little tid bit from the past -
She came home from kindergarten one day and was chanting, "The Mets stuck" "The Mets stuck". Of course she meant suck but didn't know what the word meant. Hannah said that they chanted on the bus all the way home from school. I guess the bus driver must of been a Yankees fan. Oh- I miss Birmingham sometimes.

Oh yeah- I'm a new auntie as of last evening. Liz had a baby boy yesterday (Jacob Myles Garrett) Congratulations David and Liz!!!
