Lots of fun tonight carving pumpkins and watching scary movies!
Justin and me had some fun carving our pumpkins Saturday. Justin found a cool stencil online and meticulously carved a wonderful skeleton...
I went more traditional free-handing mine from scratch...
The pumpkin I chose to carve was the largest pumpkin we have grown to date....
I have my tickets!
Below is one of the latest videos I edited with footage captured on mission trips to the Dominican Republic. It was shown at this years fundraiser and got a good response from the audience, especially the "El Professor" bit :-). I'm looking forward to next year's trip in January!!!
Are you kidding me? You made it to a half century? Unbelievable!
Okay all kidding aside it really is hard for me to believe I am 50. I certainly don't feel it and I think mentally I'm more a cross between a 30-year-old and a 12-year-old kid. I've had a lot of laughter in my life and I think my youthful attitude contributes to this disbelief. I have done so much in my life already that I feel like I've already lived a lifetime. You mean I have another 50 or so years to go??? The years I've lived already has yet to come once over... YIKES!
Well if they're anything like my first 50 years they'll be very exciting and filled with adventures and I'm sure a whole heck of a lot of laughter :-)
What I thought I'd do is include some mementos from the year I was born. Scroll down below to take a look at what I dug up in honor of my 50th birthday, and in honor of being a half a century old.
I got a few photos of our cherry tree in bloom...
It is quite magical to stand underneath it and look out through all the blossoms!
I am an upbeat energetic individual and believe most people would describe me as being easy-going, patient, and tech savvy. In my youth I was a “tinkerer” and hence have grown up to be handy with most gadgets and computer tasks.
I am often called upon by my friends, family, and co-workers to help with technical, electronic or a computer related problems which I am very good at helping with. I have the ability to speak in laymen everyday terms and have a patient show how attitude.
