Pumpkin Time!

We had some friends over last night to carve pumpkins. I always forget that it actually takes skill to carve pumpkins. Matt says i'm not allowed to carve next year, But I can scoop out the yucky stuff. I'll take it :)
(I dont know why Matt is so sad about it)

Of course we had to turn it into a competition. But I dont think we ever really decided on a winner. So i'll leave it up to my 2 or 3 blog followers. :)
Wright Graveyard
Johnson's Peek-A-BOO Pumpkin
Schmitt's Hanging Bat
Erb's Harry Potter Crew

And a special thanks to our musical entertainment :)

Meet the Wright Kiddos

Last year, we stepped into the Gene Machine (at Dave & Busters) right after we got married to see what our future children will look like. And then we regretted it.
Heres our little Princess... (for all of you that ask when we're gonna have kids...heres our reason for waiting....)

Well tonight we decided to try it one more time. Maybe our genes got a little cuter, who knows. Heres our little stud, Matt Jr.

Not so bad huh? Sure he looks like he's wearing lip gloss, and I think i'm a mean mom for putting him in that turtleneck ( I hated them when I was a kid). But over all, I think we did ok!

We're still not in any hurry... but we'll be crossing our fingers for a boy, for sure.

And of course we'll love them no matter what they look like :)

Just a couple things we consider exciting... Lots of changes but we love where we are right now. Life is good :)
1. I went to my first day of school today!!! After finally figuring out some kind of plan for us I decided to go to school for Diagnostic Medical Sonography at West Coast Ultrasound Institute. I'm really excited about it!!! I did have a hard time leaving my job. I loved it there, and i'll miss them but we both feel good about this decision :) I can't wait to start working again!
2. I feel like this counts... I cut my hair :) I love it, and cant wait to go even shorter next time. Yes, everytime I see beautiful, long hair I get a little tear in my eye, but I'm glad I finally did it, I'll stick with it for a while.
3. For #3 I wish I could say we found another place to live (rent). A place a little bigger, with a backyard for the dogs, a little closer to school and Matt's work... is this too much to ask? Everyone is telling me how its so super duper easy to find great rental houses right now... WELL??? Its frustrating. So for now we'll stay here in our little apartment. Its really not so bad, and I'm ok not packing up and scrubbing walls right now.
4. We booked our next big VaCa!! I'm so excited. We haven't really gone anywhere since Hawaii last Sept ( I know, poor us right?) but i've been craving a big trip. Last week we booked our tickets to ITALY!!! I'm beyond excited. My whole life when someone asked me "Wheres the one place you want to go?" I always answered 'Italy'. I love my wonderful Matty for making it happen so soon! We're going next March during my school break. Cant wait!
5. For the very first time... I WON on Ebay!!! I know that may not be exciting for everyone, but its kind of a big deal to me. Bidding is intense. And I know my dad, the Ebay King will be proud :)
