Happy Halloween Part 1

Last night we carved the, wait....we GUTTED the pumpkin! We ran out of time to carve the face, so that will be the project at hand tomorrow morning while it rains! Beth is an old pro, but I don't think Sarah remembers doing it from last year. She was thoroughly grossed out and ran to the bathroom to wash her hands each and every time she took a handful of "gunk" out of the pumpkin. Beth basically gutted the whole thing by herself...then we made roasted pumpkin seeds.....yummy!

Notice the "grossed out" face on Sarah Katherine:
What's gonna work? TEAMWORK!

I finally got the two of them somewhat coordinated in Halloween attire, so we took a few photos on the front porch this morning!

On On U of K...

Bob and I went to our annual UK game. The last two years we have picked late season games and both games have been freezing! Next year I'm opting for early September! :-)
Pregame we were entertained by an Armed Forces Jump Team from high above! There were three jumpers and two of them carried flags. It was neat to watch them guide their chutes in whatever direction or at whatever speed they desired. The last one to land was the guy with the US flag. The other two met him on the ground and grabbed the flag before it touched the ground- very cool!

Then it was On, On U of K, My Old Kentucky Home and the Star Spangled Banner.

This happened to be e the game where UK invited all the troops from Fort Knox. (well, not ALL of them). We suspected they were all in basic training, but after a closer look at their uniforms, Bob wasn't so sure. It was cool to see them all there. The Cats even greeted them on the field after their "big" win!

Sarah's trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Today Sarah Katherine went to the pumpkin patch with her Nursery School class. Because she went last Saturday, she felt the need to be everyone's tour guide.... :-)

She played hard and was EXHAUSTED when we left! I'm glad I finally got some pictures of her at the pumpkin patch in pumpkin clothes!

Pumpkin Patch

It was very chilly on Saturday, but the sun was out, so off we went to the pumpkin patch! I always look forward to dressing the girls in their cutest halloween outfits and getting cute pictures of them among the pumpkins, but we have YET to go when it wasn't cold and/or wet and coats are needed....Sarah has a trip with her class on Thursday. Its supposed to be 70 degrees, so MAYBE I'll get my picture then! In the meantime....enjoy these!

Happy Fall!

I think I wore them out! Both were asleep in record time that night!!
