The Pumpkin Artists

I love to carve pumpkins. So much so that for the last month or so I have asked Chris everyday if I could get a pumpkin to carve. He kept telling me it was too early and that I had to wait. Last week we went over to our friends Kristen and Jeremy's for supper and Kristen and I carved pumpkins. YAY! Here are pictures of our pumpkins. Kristen's is on the left and mine is on the right. Yeah we are five, so what!! Now go on, carve a pumpkin. What are you waiting for? It will be fun, I promise!!

Has it really been that long since I last posted? I seriously need to find a way to get myself out of this blogging funk I am clearly in and have been for quite some time. But before I figure that out I thought I would update you guys on the goings on around here.
Last Sunday Chris and I took an unexpected trip to the ER. We realized we were out of coffee and so Chris decided he would just pop over to the Dunkin Donuts right up the street from our house. As he was sitting in the drive thru he started to have a really bad stomach ache. Thinking that was all it was he came home, took some pepto and laid down. Within 5 minutes he was in the bathroom throwing up. After he laid back down he told me that he no longer had a "stomach ache" but rather just a bad pain on his right side just below his belly button. My immediate thought was that maybe it was his appendix. By 4 pm the pain was still there and Chris was once again throwing up. I think that was when Chris realized that maybe we should go to the hospital. So we got ready and away we went. When we finally got taken into the back and Chris was settled in a sexy hospital gown and a bed he was given morphine for the pain and something for the nausea. He saw the doctor, a surgeon and they were all confused. They couldn't decide if they thought it was his appendix or not. So they had him drink a big ole jug of white stuff so they could send him for a cat scan of his abdomen. The doctor came back with a confused look on his face asking Chris if he was sure he didn't have any back pain. When Chris told him yes he was sure the doctor was like "that's weird, you have a kidney stone, I have never seen it present itself like this." Well thank God it wasn't his appendix and he didn't need surgery. So they gave Chris a strainer to pee into and some pain killers and sent him on his way. The strainer is to try and catch the stone to take to a urologist to have it tested to see what kind of stone it is. Monday was filled with more throwing up and more pain but the rest of this week he has been fine. Just drinking a lot of water and peeing a lot. ha ha. He will go in again this week for another scan to see if maybe the stone has broken itself up. If not he will still have to give birth, for his sake hopefully sooner rather than later.

So other than Chris preparing to give birth things are pretty much the same around here. Just working a lot and trying to find enough hours in the day to get things done. Next weekend we are going to Cleveland for the Seahawks/Browns game with our good friends Shawn and Celeste so we are really looking forward to that. The plane ride I could do without but the rest of the weekend will be a fun time.

Chris and I laugh everytime we see this commercial. Andrea can you not picture Gavin and his friends doing this...haha, we totally can!

As you all know I am a dog walker. Because I am out walking with dogs all day I see all sorts of people. From time to time people stop to talk to me and pet whatever dog I may be walking. Sometimes people roll down there windows as they drive by to ask what kind of dog it is. It is fun to see all different kinds of people on a daily basis. What isn't fun is when GROWN men bark at my dogs as I walk by to try and get them riled up. It is really really annoying. Especially if the dog or dogs I am walking happens to take the bait and bark back. Annoying.....

Ok so it's a new week and time for me to get back in the groove with my blog. Not a lot has really been going on so I haven't really had a lot to blog about. We have both just been working a lot. Nothing new, nothing exciting.

We are taking a trip to Cleveland in a few weeks and are looking forward to that. We will be meeting our good friends Shawn and Celeste (from Seattle) there and will be going to the Seahawks/Browns game and we are super excited about that. It is Chris's b-day that weekend so the trip is really his present.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my peeps up in Canada :) GOBBLE GOBBLE!!
