We decided to be smart this year and put up our Christmas lights before it got too cold. It was still chilly but nothing compared to what followed shortly after. Thanks to our neighbors who gave us the idea to put the lights up early!
After 7 and 1/2 long years of going to school, Roberta finally graduated! Her family came up from Texas and Arizona to support her which was super cool of them. Graduation has been a goal of hers for a long time and now she has finally accomplished it.
We planted pumpkins in the garden. We were told to pull some of the plants early on so that we could have bigger pumpkins. We got greedy though and thought "Why pull up some of the plants??? We want as many pumpkins as we can get!" We ended up with about 30 small pumpkins! We had no idea what to do with them all. Next year, we will follow the very wise advice we were given and hopefully get some bigger pumpkins.
It has been a long time since we have posted anything so we have a lot to catch up on. We bought a motorcycle this summer! It is a Yamaha Virago. It rocks! It cut our gas cost in half and we also had a blast cruising to some beautiful areas. We have decided to become hippies, riding around on our bike and taking pictures of waterfalls :).
