I had forgotten how fun carving pumpkins....

REALLY IS!!! Monday night Me, Ashley, Nathan and Devin all carved pumpkins while Laurie and Kecia sat by and watched. It was fun to be able to sit down and relax and have fun taking pictures of Ashley and Dev carving his pumpkin and watching Nate carve our pumpkin!! And they turned out really really good!!! I was very shocked with me and Nate's pumpkin because I picked out the absolute hardest pattern for him to carve, but he did an amazing job!!! And ashley did an amazing job on her gobling that she carved!! And I had a GREAT time taking pictures and carving the bat out of our pumpkin...everything else I let Nate do because he was the perfectionist about it!! =) But here are a few pictures from the great night!! And it will go down in history as one of the most fun nights I have ever had!!

Guys you might not want to read this one...and girls will will totally understand my pain....

So I am totally in the worse mood that I have been in, in a REALLY long time!! Started off that I woke up way before I even had to be up this morning. I had a girl doctor appointment at 10:15 this morning so I was going to get up and "prepare" about 8:30. Well that would've been nice except the fact that I woke up at 3 am and couldn't go back to sleep til nearly 5 then I was wide awake at 7 finally at about 8 I got up and got in the shower. And I shaved my legs because girls lets face dont want hairy legs going to see the dr. Well after an eventful morning at the house and some drama with work, I finally made it to the dr office about 10:00 on the dot. I got there signed in and gave them my new insurance since I haven't been since I have had my job at Faulkner. Well it was an act of congress getting all my insurance changed over...and I finally got done with that about 10:30. Well I sat in the waiting room for over an hour and 45 minutes. Long enough to see it clear out and fill back up with different people! Needless to say I was very very ill!! While I was sitting there Michelle Bond walked in and sat down and talked to me and couldn't even finish her story before she was called back there. And when she got out of her appointment, well I was still sitting there!! I finally got called back there about 12 and once I got back there...the NP was talking to me and looked at me kinda crazy and asked me my birthday...I told her and THEY HAD PULLED THE WRONG DONNA L WALKER!!! I was sooooo aggravated at this point!!! I mean so aggravated! So I patiently put my open front robe on and put the sheet over my whole body bc it was FREEZING in there, and sat and waited on my Dr. to come in. About 20 minutes later she came in and I was so flustered it was all I could do just be nice. So in the process of all this I totally forgot to ask her everything I needed to ask her!!! Which again aggravated me!! But finally she "got down to business" and everything was done in less than 3 minutes.
Then came the part i was last Guardisil shot. Man oh man do those shots hurt (for those of you that have them you know my pain...). For those of you that haven't had them...well they hurt like the devil becasue they are freezing cold and if you dont know shots that are cold...well they burn really bad going in and tense up your muscles from your neck all the way to your fingers!! So the NP gave me the shot and she wasn't as quick to make sure I wasn't in pain as my last NP was but she was very nice! =) But over all it was just been a horrible day!! Hopefully it will get somewhat better, but I wont is hard to stay positive when all you can think is negative!!! So pray that I get some positive shots, I mean thoughts soon!! =)

I love the fall....

so so much!! It has been such a nice day today!!

Well I had the best weekend that I have had in a while! not that it was perfect but that it was very REAL and just fun...and RELAXING! Nate and I went to his house this weekend. We got there Thursday night and just visited with his family and ate. Then Friday morning we got up and got ready and went and ate with Nate's cousin Amy. It was nice to be able to sit down and talk with her. She is getting married in december and Nate is supposed to be singing in her wedding so that was a good time to talk to her about everything. She is so super sweet and I am so glad that she is around for me to talk to! Friday night Mom and Dad met us at Nate's house for Nate, his parents, and me and my parents to sit down and eat. This wasn't the 1st time they met but I was still a little nervous about it. Overall though it was really nice. Daddy was doing the color for Dade County radio program so while he was in the booth mom sat down in the bleachers with me, Mrs. Jacki, Mr. Terry, and Nate, while Emily was playing in the band! =) She did so good and I am so impressed with her ability to play everything! She was playing the piccolo Thursday night and it wasn't even her instrument that she normally plays and she did so good!!! I was very impressed!!! After the game was over mom and dad left and The Woodring fam and I went back to their house to play skipbo. It was fun once we all re-learned how to play but Mr. Terry took the cake on winning the game! =) (This is a pic from the game, I know Carhart is my style! Haha =))

It was the Great Locomotive Chase Festival in Adairsville this weekend and let me tell you that was an experience! =) I was pre-warned by Nate's mom and by his hair stylist that it was a big high school redneck reunion! LOL And it was to an extent. But overall it was a lot of fun! I got to eat a corndog and funnel cake and drink some really good home-made lemonade!! Of course I also got to hang out with Mrs. Jacki and Mr. Terry.

The Adairsville Church of Christ had a booth set up at the festival and so we hung out there most the time and visited with all the church members that were working the booth. We left the festival and went to Wal-Mart and got some food for Mrs. Jacki and got us some Phase 10 cards so we could introduce another new game to everyone! =) And that was alot of fun also...mostly bc I won! =) (Just kidding I am not going to be a sore winner =))
Then came Sunday and we got up and went to church. Mr. Terry taught the lesson in class and did such a great job. Then Nate led singing for worship and all around it was a great morning. After church Mrs. Jacki fixed lunch for us. It was so good! And always is!! =) Then Mr. Terry, Mrs. Jacki and Nate and I sat down and all just got to talk for a good hour or so and that was nice to be able to do! But I think that about sums up my weekend and I hope I broke it up a little bit better for everyone that gets exhausted by reading my blogs! =)
