Carving Pumpkins

Finally, on our sixth Halloween we got around to carving pumpkins. I have to admit, we had a blast and I think our pumpkins turned out really well. Nate only carved pumpkins once or twice as a kid, and it's something my family did each year and I have fond memories of it. We will definitely be adding this to our list of Halloween traditions. Nate wanted to carve something other than a traditional face. He found these stencils online and it was so much fun. We're thinking we'll do some themed pumpkins every year.

Photography Classes - Amazing Deal!!!

Okay, there is an amazing deal at Groupon for these online digital photography classes. I just did my first class last month and am in the first week of my second class. I cannot tell you how much better my photos look after just the first class. The classes are for dsl cameras but she does have one for point and shoot. I promise your photos will improve and you won't be frustrated with your camera any more! The class takes me about 30 minutes to read through and watch the videos each week. Then you have an assignment and you send in that photo and you get individual feedback on that photo every week. Love it! Last time when they were on Groupon, Nate ordered me the Digital 101 (which was awesome!) and Digital 102 which I am in right now. I ordered two more classes today. That is how much I like this lady! The classes are normally $97 each and they are on sale for $29 right now! The Groupon is good until December 2013 and you can pick what month you'd like to take your classes. I totally recommend them. This would make a great Christmas gift too!
