Fall Festivities

We went to the pumpkin patch the other day to pick out our pumpkins for our annual Knudsen Pumpkin Carving Contest.

It was poring rain, but the kids still had a blast picking out all kinds of pumpkins for carving and decoration.

They had a little maze for the kids to walk through and they had so much fun.

It was so funny to watch Dax try to get through it.

Then we all got together to carve them and had so much fun!
Kennedi pretty much did her own, other then some carving at the end. She actually did a really good job!

Here is hers all lit up.....
Here is mine and Shane's....

Our pet SNAKE!

The other day Kennedi and I were outside walking around the yard and as we walked by one of our window wells something grabbed my eye and for some reason I looked in to find a HUGE Black Widow Spider. I walked closer to check it out and then saw this HUGE snake that has made a nice little home down there as well. I kinda freaked out and yelled "there's a snake!!" and we both ran in the house. Now I'm not really a wussy girl, I can handle a lot and snakes don't necessarily scare me, I was just completely shocked, I wasn't expecting it.

I then went down stairs to inspect it from the window and here it is. We never stretched it out to see how long it actually was, but I'm guessing around 3ft. I'm also guessing it'd been down there a while because it had shed it's skin.

Sense Shane was out town, I called his dad to come over and get it for me.

Dax decided he needed to help too, so he went into the garage and got the shovel and came back to get funny!
Here is the skin.....

Dax was pretty interested in it....luckily by this time Kenna was at dancing or she would have had nightmares for months!

Have you seen my Hubby?

It's that time of year....we refer to it as "busy season" around our house. She sells medicare advantage plans for Humana, and from OCTOBER 1st through DECEMBER 31st he is M I A around here. This year he is gone Monday-Friday working either in Cedar City or Kanab and then works the weekends here in Sanpete County.
I can't complain though, because the rest of the year he is home ALL the time (sometimes too much), I'm sure people in town don't even think he has a job most of the time!!
So......anyways......I enjoy my days hangin out with my kids (with no adult interaction), and at night I enjoy my TV shows!

Best one yet!

Dax is really into hiding. He has a few hiding spots that he always runs to when he wants to if I want to change his diaper or put him to bed.

This is a new one that he found yesterday. I about died laughing because he thought he was being really sneaky!

Phone Pics

I need to post some of these pictures I have on my phone that I thought were pretty cute.

This was Dax pretty much all summer. He LOVES to be outside, in fact if we are in the house the doors always have to be locked or he is gone!

He thinks he is so big riding his bike!

My little Kenna is growing up way too fast! She also went very blond this summer, hopefully it darkens back up over the winter.

Love my little Dax!

We got to visit with the Allen family last weekend while they were in town. Dax and Mia were so cute playing then fighting then playing and fighting some more. Lindsey and I just laughed at them as they fought, it was the funniest thing!

(we told Mia to give him kisses...he didn't like that)
