We had our 3rd annual Lowrance Pumpkin carving contest on Saturday and man was the competition fierce. Matt smoked us some pork which was mighty tasty and he had several people in the kitchen "helping".

The Woody boys are the original "babies" of the crew and look how big they are!!! I just can't get over them. Caleb even has a girlfriend.

This is Davis, Ben and Jennifer's baby boy, and possible suiter for BellaRose.

Those over there are the 3 judges, and they took this pretty seriously. Worth carved our pumkin into Rainy, with her tennis ball and all. Mousee, the Woody's chocolate lab, wanted that ball. We came home the 2nd place losers, I mean winners.

Ben Young was declared the winner, with his B.Y. original and he went home with the awesome prize of the turkey statue. There was a major upset, however, when the pumpkins were lit at night, when we all discovered that Woody had the far superior pumpkin. Too bad the Young's had already gone home with the prize.

BellaRose had a blast the 3rd annual pumpkin carving contest as well, although it was her 1st. She was sporting a pretty rocking outfit as well. As the temp. dropped the layers started coming on. She has offically rolled over. I have pictures of that coming soon. I have already posted way too many pictures, so you can see those later. She is also swaddle free!!! Yes we broke the habit. It was rough, but now she has slept through the night the past several nights, and she is taking naps, all swaddle free. She is also eating like a champ. She loves her sweet potatoes!

As most of you know I LOVE cell phones. I can't help it, when I see someone with a new phone I have to look at it and find out all about it. It is just who. I. am. On Friday I discovered that my new in two was up with Verizon so I got myself a new cell phone. This is the RAZR 2 and it is AWESOME! It is chocolate brown, need I say more?

Now I cannot see the other pumpkins too well in the picture but yours looks very creative. I think you should have tied for first. Are you dressing bellarose up for Halloween? If so what will she be?

katie-i am likinf being home more and more. i get out everyday. if i did not i think that bellarose and i would go crazy. she has to be on the go as well. there are days that i miss work, and bringing home a paycheck. that sometimes is really hard for me. it is going really well though being at home. i am surprised by how much i like it.
cat-we aren't dressing her up this year, but next year you better believe we will be out there getting candy. i always find it interesting the parents who come to the house with their little babies and want candy.

I dont blame you for not dressing her up! I think both Tripp and Jack wore pajamas on their first Halloween!
