The whole music thing is not doing as I want it ...the point of Kid Rock was because he performed at the CMAs the point of Brad Paisley was the whole deer hunting thing...oh well. I hope you like Kid Rock.

Once again, Puh came through for us on the CMAs. Unfortunately I felt terrible and Carmen had some school work she wanted to get done. We didn't think we would go but we both rallied at the last minute and went. It was a great show and we did get to go backstage and see Reese Witherspoon up close and personal. Hopefully we can score some passes next year again and we will be on the top of our game - like last year....if you want to call it that. Anyway, no pictures were even taken. I thought I might take one of Carmen walking down the red carpet but I really felt that bad that I didn't want to make the effort...so sad!

I am first off very sad there are no pictures to go with this post. Jonathan, Phillip, Lofton and Jude went deer hunting in West Plains this weekend. Ella and I stayed at home (Gabe was there too but he just goes along with whatever). I had big plans of things to do with Ella but she came down with strep throat and an ear infection on Tuesday and since I waited to take her to the doctor until Gabe had his 2 month appointment, she didn't have antibiotics until Wednesday. Off the subject...Ella and I spent Friday night in - painting nails, eating pizza, making brownies and watching Enchanted. On Saturday we hit the movies to see Madagascar 2, did a little shopping and then had some lunch. It was a great weekend and would have been even sweeter if Eli had not come down with a stomach virus so him and Amanda were not able to come...hope you guys are feeling better!!! I am sure Pops and Mimi took some pictures that I can put on here later. **edit - the "little" boys did not do any hunting - they played with Mimi, think crafts, cooking and riding around on the 4 wheeler!**

Due to my laziness, I am combining Trunk or Treat at church and actual Halloween. Naturally the costumes are the same - the only difference is Jude refused to paint his face on Halloween. I think obvious to all is the fact that Ella is Dorothy, Jude is Tinman, Gabe is the cowardly lion, I was the Wicked Witch and Jonathan was the Scarecrow. Ella really wanted me to be Glinda the good witch but all the costumes were so expensive and a little tight considering Gabe is only 7 weeks old that I decided to go with the freer (is that a word) flowing witch costume - much more economical as well! My mom made Ella's costume (Marilyn's mom had started it for Jenna and had the all the pieces - Nana had to sew it together and add accessories - thanks Big Audie!), and the rest were ordered online in September. On Halloween my parents, Marilyn, Casey, Audie and Jenna all were over for dinner. Audie pleased Ella as she came dressed up as Glinda! She looked great! We did very little actual door to door visiting but we did hit a few houses. The kids (and adults) had a great time.

Thursday was PJ day for Ella's Kindergarten class as well as Jude's turtle class. His PJ day was for his Halloween party and I believe Ella's was for the letter P - honestly I am not sure though. Jonathan had the privilege of attending Jude's party and apparently he was a big hit as I don't think any other dad's were there. He had fun and let the kids take some pictures with the camera. I am not really quite sure what all the pictures are about but here they are!

Last Sunday after naps we finally made it to the pumpkin patch. We tried a new one this year because we sort of ran out of time. It was closer to home than the one we had gone to in the past. It was less crowded but just as much fun. You can see from the pictures a few of the things there were to do. Even at the tail end of the pumpkin patchin' season, there were still pumpkins to be had!
