Marks Birthday

For Marks Birthday this year we had a pretty low key day. The week before we went to dinner with John and Sherry to Tuconos. It was a meat frenzy! On the day of, we both went to work. The day started out not so hot. Mark had to be to work at 5:00 am and when he tried to leave at 4:20 his car wouldn't start. So I crawled out of bed and drove him. But, on the bright side, we got to spend that much more time together!

I picked Mark up on my way home from work. When we got home, Mark opened presents. I got him new windshield wipers (he has been so jealous of how well  mine work) and i surprised him with a wonderful photo book of the first two years of our marriage. After presents, Mark took a nap while i hung out. When he FINALLY woke up we had dinner at Cafe Rio. Then we went to his parents house where we sang and had Sweet Tooth Fairy cupcakes! (thanks Wendy!!)

Unfortunately, the only pictures we got were on my phone.

The candles flames are the same  color as the wax! Cool!

Wednesday, Mark had the day off of work. He claimed birthday week rights and rented a video game and has been thoroughly enjoying it!

Silly face!!

Hee Haw!!!

Mark and I went to Hee Haw farms before Halloween with our friends John and Sherry. We had a great time! My favorite was definitely the cotton candy. Me least favorite part... when mark smacked me in the face with a tether ball. It was both awful and embarrassing... embarrassingly awful!

Mark and I had fun waiting for JS to get there by feeding the goats. They all ran over to mark when he started cranking the wheel for their food.

Mark had fun delivering the food on this crank system they had set up

Just a good lookin' John Deere Farmer! My Grandpa would be proud!

We had fun getting lost in the corn maze... until we all got hungry! then we wanted out!!

After our great times at hee haw we went to John and Sherry's with some In N' Out burgers! it was a great night!

Pumpkin Carving

We carved pumpkins for Halloween! I look a little creepy in these pictures, but i like my toothy pumpkin! Mark HATED his pumpkin. He kinda started carving without a real idea of what he wanted to do. in the end we decided it looked like E.T.! He threw it away soon after taking the pictures, he just couldn't handle having it around.
