Getting into the festivities!

Thanks to Ben and Amy, Jean and I got into pumpkin carving! I had been thinking about doing it, but life kept happening and we never got around to it, I like to prefer to avoid calling it lazy...Anyway, they had us over for a delicious breakfast dinner (my fave!) and carving.
I think this was my first time actually involved in the carving of pumpkins...yep, I am 26. I have helped clean out pumpkins, but can't remember ever taking a knife to one. Don't judge me!
Anyway, Jean and I picked the happy looking pattern (it looked the least initmidating) and Emma, a pro, coached me through the carving and made it look great!

After 26 years of living, I can no longer say....

that I have never been stung by a bee. Rude! At work, I was innocently reaching into my bag when a bee felt threatened and attacked! So I had no idea what to do (having no experience in this area) so thanks to my co-worker nurse who promptly removed the stinger. Side note--did you know that stingers move around after the bee has fallen off?? Weird, like a chicken without a head maybe. I guess on the bright side, I will now know what people mean when they say something is like "being stung by a bee"....

Comforting or Creepy???? what is your take??

So I just found a story on MSN that you should check out at They are making these dolls to look quite (disturbingly??) like real babies. They are called "reborns". Hmm. It said that they can "fill a spot in your heart" regarding women who can't have children...I know this is a sensitive area for many, so I will refrain from more commentary. But, interesting to look at the photos (click on images and you will see several different...models?...designs?). I know I would be fooled!!!
