Every year since the girls were itsy bitsy, we have carved pumpkins! This year was a lot of fun! We grew our own pumpkins and had a lot of fun carving them. Lindsay, Zach and Griffin came over and had dinner with us, then we got out all the carving stuff and went to town.

Scott wanted to see how the insides of his home grown pumpkins tasted! Wasn't very tastey!! YUCK!!!
Since Kristin is now done with her heads for her Cosmetology Class, she wanted to use them to decorate the house. The kids had fun making the heads look gruesome.

Snow Day

It Snowed!! Sunday morning we wake up to a white blanket on the ground. Isn't it just beautiful. We knew it would melt fast, so we took a few pictures of our back yard. I am ready for Fall...I LOVE the Fall. Not so sure I am ready for the Winter yet. But this was an absolutely beautiful moring.

Scrapbooking Weekend

On Friday, Lindsay, Debbie and I packed up Debbie's Yukon and headed down to Nephi to have a Girl's Overnight Scrapbook Weekend. We stopped at Reed's Drive-In for dinner then went to Debbie's friends mom and dad's home.

We scrapped until around midnight, then headed to bed. The three of us stayed out in the trailer. It was a cold night, but we had the heater on so we slept comfy. We got up around 8:30 had homemade cinnamon rolls and cereal for breakfast, scrapped some more, then had home made soup for lunch. While we were eating lunch it started snowing. My camera was downstairs so I didn't get a picture. We started loading up all our gear around 4:00. It's a lot of stuff to take for just one night, but we had so much fun and actually got quite of lot of pages done. It's mostly just fun to be with friends, eat lots of treats and laugh and laugh.

The rules of the tag are to name 7 random things about yourself and then tag 7 others. Let the randomness begin!

1. I am an organizer! I hate it when things are not organized. It absolutely drives me NUTS. Everything needs its place.When things are not organized I feel panic and actually have to stop what's going on and organize.

2. When I am mad or in a bad mood....I clean! It's the BEST way for me to get out of a bad mood or get out my frustration.

3. I love to Scrapbook. It's my way of showing I have an Art Talent! I can't wait to finish a book. I have a whole Scrapbook room will all my stuff. It is PACKED. Closet, walls and shelves. It's my get away. I love to go back thru the books I've completed and reminisce.

4. I thoroughly enjoy yard work. I love being out in my yard planting, mowing, weeding, and pruning! I would rather be working out in the yard any day versus working in the house. I hate house work, but I do love a clean house.

5. I have a few nicknames I acquired thru the years. LD, LonnaDonna, LJ, Jo, sis, shortie, munchkin, and punkin.

6. I love to go 4-wheeling. I have my very own Yamaha 450 Kodiak 4-wheeler. We have been to some of the most fun and amazing places in Utah on our 4-wheelers. I don't mind riding with Scott at times on his 4-wheeler, but when I can I'd much rather be blazing my own trail and enjoying the ride.

7. I have a very strange talent and that is....I can pinch really good with my toes. I've caused a few people some really nice bruises, just ask my brothers, hubby and girls.

So now I tag 7 people and then I will stalk your blogs and learn random things about you. I tag my real life friends and family: Cheryl, Stacey, JD, Whitney, Lindsay, & Kristin. Only did 6, but my friends and family have to do 7. LOL
