Corn Maze

We went to a corn maze on Saturday night...first time for all of us. Since it was already dark, we used flashlights to find our way to each of six checkpoints. Well, okay, we only went to five turned out that #5 was missing, LOL.

Punch Card

This is the back side of the corn maze punch card...we all got a kick out of comparing the front side with with the rear :)


We have finally gotten the lights installed on the front of our house!!! I am totally excited to be able to see the front steps in the morning when I leave for work. I was sure I was going to break an ankle or something during my groggy stumble to the car.

Halloween Costume

Went halloween costume shopping this weekend for my step-son...he decided on this grim reaper type costume and is totally excited to go trick-or-treating tonight. He and Tory made the scythe...thank goodness it is made of wood!! The mask is totally recirculates blood using a tube and pump system to make it look like his face is bleeding, crazy crazy.

Eyes like fish

We had a good time playing with this cool camera lens of Matt's.

All Ears

Do you remember how Dumbo could fly with his ears...well, we have this horrible habit of showing just how large the boy's ears are and taking pictures of them. Matt sent this one to me...taken a while ago while my sister was visiting (she is holding Charlie's ears) with the fisheye lens. Charlie is so incredibly patient with our amusements.

Pumpkin Carving

Jacob had one of his friends over yesterday and decided to get into the Halloween spirit by carving pumpkins...this one is Jacob's. He carved faces on both sides and so when it is lit the rear face reflection on the house looks a little ghostly, so cool.

Halloween Fun

This is the pumpkin Tory carved...perhaps he has done this type of project before :)

NPR Pledge Drive

My company volunteered to answer phones this year for the local NPR pledge drive. Seven of us showed up at the Seattle station at 5:45 a.m. to report for duty... and waiting for us was fresh coffee (thank goodness) and tons of food. The phone answering part was fairly easy, they provided a script and directions. We ended up making the goal in the last minutes of our three hour shift...very satisfying!!! However, it is a good thing that we will not be doing this again until next year...being in Seattle at quarter of six in the morning had me getting up around 2:30 a.m., waaaaaaaaay too early.
