I wanted to create a new blog so people from back home can see what we're up to in the Northwest. I should be updating this more often than my Germany blog (at least that's the plan)
As you may know, after we got married, we had our honeymoon in Sedona and then had to drive my car to Washington. I got to see our house for the first time! Chris wanted it to be a surprise so I wasn't even allowed to look at pictures. I will post pictures of our new home after my sisters visit (I don't want to spoil it for them). Chris did an amazing job on picking the house. I really like it. It is perfect for our first home. Obviously we have work to do on it, but nothing too serious.
The week before Halloween, we went over to his friend's house to carve pumpkins. This was the first pumpkin that I've ever carved. I was so proud! I carved the cat while Chris did the headless horsemen. They turned out better than we thought they would.
Unfortunately, they were starting to mold before we remembered that we needed pictures of our first carved pumpkins together. My cat is starting to decompose (it was a lot better looking than this, or so I'd like to think). I can't wait until next year to carve more pumpkins. I want to get a pumpkin carving kit and go crazy.
