Sniffle, cough, sniffle

We have both been sick all week. It is not fun. Aaron got sick first, and like the good giving husband he is, decided to share it with me. That's what's new.
Also, I have been making the center pieces for my Dad's wedding. He gets married on Friday. Third wedding in our family in four months. Crazy! The center peices are turning out surprisingly well. It's supposed to looking autumn like. I'll have to post pictures later. I'm pretty proud. :)
That's all the updates for now.

Brand newish 2002 Honda CR-V

Today we finally bought a new vehicle. We have needed this for awhile because all we have had to use is my Toyota and Aaron's motorcycle. With the cold weather Aaron's motorcycle is no longer a good vehicle to use. My car is an ice box and frosts on the inside and out when it gets cold and the rear defrosters don't work, so we were really in need of a reliable car for the winter time. We have been talking about getting a new a new source of transportation for about six months now, so I got tired of just looking and gave Aaron a deadline to get a car. That was this Saturday for when we go to a Jazz game. I didn't work today so Aaron got the day off too so we could look. I honestly had my doubts that we would really buy something. We found a silver 2001 CR-V at the first dealership we went to and I loved it. It was in perfect condition and drove great. We went to the next dealer and there was a gold CR-V that was a year newer and had less miles but was a thousand dollars more and had some smaller scratches on the outside and bigger ones on the the inside. It had a lot more power though and a sun roof. We were torn as to which one to get. Finally we decided on the newer 2002, the differences on the inside were pretty big and better looking. I am very happy with our decision. My first car in the twenty first century!!! Now that the all too long story is finished, here are the pictures! :)

Goldie Locks? Goldie Hawn? Still working on a name :)

The last of the Halloween fun

Halloween has come and gone. Our last couple days of fun included carving pumpkins on Friday and eating delicious pumpkin pamcakes on Saturday. I love how everything is pumpkin flavored at this time of year. Mmmm so much to love about Halloween. Here are some pictures from the carved pumpkins. Can you guess who carved which one?

Stitches and cannibal
The guts from just one pumpkin. Messy!

Aaron Carved stitches, I carved the cannibal
