I love these pumpkins that are all over the place now! I had to buy one!
This one turned out really dark, but I wanted to be able to tell the candles were lit :)

Saturday, Garet had a fishing rodeo for work. Here is the one from last year... this year it was out in Decatur. I didn't go this year, and Garet didn't have many pictures because it POURED down rain! I was at the house and cleaned most of the morning. After I had my shower and was all set to get out and do something, the rain came and didn't stop!! I have no clue how much we got, but it was steady for a few hours! When I finally got up the motivation to get out in it (I went to the grocery store) it let up some.
Sunday was absolutely beautiful!! That morning Garet and I decided to go to church then go out and do something outside. You just can't waste a gorgeous day like that inside! So after lunch we headed to Guntersville. There is a nice path around the lake that we walked around.
Down near the water there was a nice breeze. It was so perfect to be outside!

Many of you know some of my Suzi stories (here and here for example). Well this one isn't soo bad :)
Yesterday, Garet went home around 3:00 in the afternoon. He gives me a call, and he says, "Where's Suzi??" I thought he was joking. He thought that I had taken her somewhere earlier yesterday and he just thought he had forgotten (like the vet, or Petsmart). So he thought I was joking. The conversation went something like this:
G: Where's Suzi?
Me: Yeah right! (Suzi is normally all over us when we get home)
G: Seriously, where is she?
Me: Nu uh! ..... Garet? huh?
G: I can't find her!
Me: What? Are you kidding with me?!
G: Kelly, I pinkie promise! (That means it's serious!)
Me: Ohmigosh, I gotta get out of here (I was at work)
I run in and tell my boss, I gotta go, my dogs missing! She says fine, good luck, and I'm out the door. Garet calls back:
G: What the heck?
Me: Is any doors open?
Me: How the heck would she have gotten out?!
G: The mat in the laundry room is all messed up, the laundry detergent bottle is moved around, looks like a struggle.
Me: Do you think someone broke in? Is anything else missing??
Okay - so in my (crazy, dog obsessed, not thinking straight) mind, I am trying to make sense... no doors were open to the outside, we normally shut all the inside doors to all various rooms, nothing was missing, garage door was shut....
I came up with all sorts of scenarios... a robber tried to get in and Suzi got out - and somehow the robber shut the door as he was leaving with nothing (??)
Suzi got stuck somewhere in the house and was hurt (or worse)
There was a hole in our house going to outside that we didn't know about - maybe through our fireplace (???)
HA! told ya I wasn't thinking clearly.
I was almost home, and Garet calls me again...
G: She was in our guest bathroom.
G: The door must have been opened a crack and she went in and then the door shut behind her. Looks like she was in the tub because all the shampoo bottles were knocked over.
Me: HA! At least she's okay!
G: She has her head down and tail tucked like she is in trouble.
Hahaha! Suzi doesn't bark when it is just Garet or I coming or going. If you have ever met my dog, you probably know (and have experienced) that Suzi is a great watchdog! She sounds very mean, and barks like crazy at the doorbell or anyone besides us that comes inside. So, poor dog was stuck in the bathroom and not making noise. Garet (thinking all the doors had been shut before we left) didn't even think to open the bathroom door. She sure had us scared!
So...... after going through all these crazy emotions, and for-sure-could-never-happen situations, Suzi is fine.

Yesterday was their first game, and boy were they BAD! So sad! It is always so exciting for us to cheer for our Panthers. We are obviously not anywhere near any other fans, so it is just us cheering at the restaurant. - We are at the restaurant, ya know because, of course, they don't televise Panthers on our local stations. I think the only time they do is when Panthers are playing Tennessee.
Anyway... we were so pumped! We woke up early to go to the early service at church, to make sure we were out in time for the game :) We put on our colors, and parked ourselves at Buffalo Wild Wing. We did actually score a touchdown right off - but it just went downhill from there (wayy downhill) Maybe next week?? I'll let ya know.
2. When my parents were here a few months ago they brought a bluebird house with them. Now first off - I really really dislike birds, strongly! They are fine and dandy to look at from far way, but they just give me the creeps. Dunnowhy. So, I was weary of having a birdhouse so close to the house. I didn't want to attract the creepy little things. Secondly - how the heck would BLUEbirds know that this is a BLUEbird house?? Well, turns out they are smarter than I thought...
I don't think I have seen a bluebird since we have lived in this house, and yesterday Garet told me to look out back - 3 of them! It is actually pretty neat :)
There are so many different breads I could make, but I actually had everything on hand to make whole wheat bread. It is so good!

Can you even see me?? Here is the whole sign:
Friday, September 4, 2009
and maybe do some canoeing. I am a little homesick, so it will be so wonderful to see my parents, and I think my brother and his fiance are coming too! Both Garet and I have off Monday (for Labor Day) and Tuesday, so it will be a nice long weekend!
Have a good weekend!
