Sometime about Wednesday of last week I picked up three pumpkins for the kids to carve. Andrew promised the kids he would help them carve them so I thought I would get them so they could be here when he got ready to do it. That was a mistake, because as soon as I bought them the younger ones were wanting to carve them. The twins, especially Taylor, kept asking when they could cut the pumpkins. Well, as time went SLOWLY by for them, they started naming the pumpkins, one was Sam, another was Bucky and the other was named Lori. Taylor said his was Bucky. So last night Andrew came home and we almost immediately got to carving pumpkins. As it was, I think all three of the younger boys thought theirs was Bucky. I don't guess they paid close enough attention because none of them seemed to know which pumpkin was which.Katie's friend, Catie Callahan, came and spent the weekend with us. (her foster Mom was out of town and she needed a place to stay) So, Katie, Catie and Tyler were carving one pumpkin, Heidi and Taylor another, and Drew and Grant another. I bought kits that had stencils for faces and carving knives.

You can tell by his face he is less than thrilled. The next picture is blurry but a little more disgusting, just a warning for those who can't handle gross stuff.

Well, I tried to upload a picture of Andrew and I kissing but blogger wouldn't let me. HA!! They are having problems so I'll try to post it later. Anyway, Andrew and I have been married 20 years now. It doesn't seem possible that it has been that long. I think it has flown by. We have had our troubles just like everyone else, no one is perfect and we both have our faults... I seem to have really BIG faults. :) But we have learned how to really love one another and appreciate the good things and it has been a wonderful 20 years. I would marry him all over again, right now!! You know what he is doing for me?? He and Gale are finishing up the job in Ft. Yukon... it's crunch time, they are really trying to get done by Oct. 31st. There is alot to do to finish up the job, but he is taking the time off to fly down tomorrow afternoon and take me out to dinner tomorrow night to celebrate. I have to tell you a funny thing on him, he's so sweet... :) he ordered me several new outfits while he was up there in Ft. Yukon, wanting to surprise me, but he used our home e-mail address and they sent me the receipt. So 10 minutes after he ordered it, he is on the phone with me and I asked him if he ordered something on the internet, and like a good BRYAN he lied and said "No", then I said, "Well, if you didn't we're in trouble then because someone ordered something on our name." He got really quiet and I said, "uh oh" and he asked how I found out and I told him. So the young, computer savvy guys up there have been heckling him ever since for not putting in his business e-mail address. But I told him I WAS surprised... to get the receipt and it certainly doesn't take away at all from what he bought for me. Isn't he the greatest??? I love you BABE!! You're the best, even when you don't order anything for me!!! I have to say, I feel sorry for all of you because I got the best guy in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!! :)

So, after Renee knocked the hook off, we had Ron Hunt pitch it to Thad .......
Then all the candy fell out.....
Standing around eating candy.
Ooooops ..... we fixed waaaaaaay too many hamburgers and hotdogs. We had almost as many "baskets" left over as Jesus had after his miracle feeding of the five thousand. :)
I wish I had a picture of the devotional time we had around the fire. Thad talked about God's goodness, His mercy and His truth, then there were several testimonies and we sang lots of songs and choruses. These kids all really seem to have a desire to serve the Lord. Many asked for prayer in areas of their lives that they need help with. They are honest and open. It was a very precious time and I'm glad I got to be a part of it. I hope we have many more times like it.
