Pumpkin Carving


Adam, Kim and Landon Jerdee joined the Underwoods (Hunter, Blake, Amy and Dave) for some good old fashioned pumpkin carving on Sunday. Amy supplied the venue and food. One of the highlights was the excellent dried pumpkin seeds Amy prepared to eat. Everyone enjoyed them including Landon.

Dave and Hunter

Two pumpkins with candles later that night.

Adam carved out a "Kitty-Bat" design from a carving kit template. Otherwise the designs were carved using freehand designs.

Mathlete Blake


At the annual awards ceremony this year, Blake received a trophy for reaching 2 years above grade level for math. Go Blake!

Legoland, Florida just opened

Remember our visit to Cypress Gardens during the Jimmy Carter days?
It went by the wayside as a popular park so the lego people
took over the site.

Check out the VIDEOS...the second one, A Walk in the Park,
tells the story about the building of the park.

Blake is sure to love this place
for its use of legos...:)

Amy sent this photo to me so I'm posting it.
Hunter is popular with the guys.
 He works hard and they give him a lot of "atta boys."

Blake is popular on his team too.
There doesn't seem to be anything he can't do.
I don't have a picture of him to post.
Anyone?
