Greetings from the Enterprise with Butterflies!

Happy Halloween! Today was great fun with all the trick or treating, sitting out in the lawn giving out candy and the costumes! Kaylie tried to get into her Pa's jacket pocket at all the 'scary' costumes and decorations, but managed to get a bucketful of loot anyways after they walked up and down the entire street.

Kaylie wanted to be a pink sparkly butterfly. check.

And she wanted fancy pink sparkly makeup. check.

Here we are in our costumes. Well, except me. I'm boring. But Kaylie as the pink sparkly butterfly. Reed as Spock. And Carter as Captain Kirk. Quite a team!

The brainpower of the Enterprise. Ready for action!

And a close up of Reed! "Live long and prosper!" Spock.

Pretty Pumpkins...

So I always keep my dining room table set. It stays decorated with the season or holiday always ready for dinner. Or lunch. Or any other meal that would need china and crystal. Yes, we actually eat here sometimes.

And because it is fall, I have way too many pumpkins out all smooshed together in the middle. They make me happy.

And Reed, now you have proof on the internet that I do this, and usually make you help me :)

Thanks Dad!

So my Dad is an awesome woodworker. He has made most of the furniture I owned. My favorite being of course my coffee table. Recently he brought us his old bedstead in hopes of us converting it into a more grown-up entertainment center for our living room. Our old one being a college dorm holdout made from a stolen sign, plywood and a set of drumsticks - yes drumsticks!

Reed and I finally got all the pieces in the living room and spent all weekend putting it together and arranging all the cords and such. It was a bigger job than anticipated, but now that we have the space for it, all the gaming consoles are out and the tv actually fits and the dvd's are hidden. It is a beautiful thing!

Without further ado...

Thanks Dad! It looks great!

16 Pounds!

So, I have no idea what I am doing on a blog. Or how to write one. I do not write journals, or notes or much of anything, so this is all very new. So jumping in...

Yesterday Carter had his 4-month checkup. 16 pounds! 26 1/2 inches long! I have one heavy tall little man! But he seems perfectly contented to be all of the above.

Oh happy day!

Oh and also, I can't get that song 16 Tons out of my head now that I have posted this! ;)
