Cougar Pumpkin

For the past two Halloweens we have carved pumpkins with Mike and Heather Thatcher. Heather is Travis's cousin, and she and her husband Mike are our dear friends. They are serious pumpkin carvers with all of the right tools and books full of templates. They also have incredible patience to let each of our kids design their own pumpkin and go at their own pace. We were so sad to learn that Mike's mom died suddenly the week before Halloween. We can't imagine such an unexpected loss like that.  There just aren't words for it. We're thinking of them and looking forward to resuming our tradition next year. We had pumpkins for Anna, Michael, and Sarah to carve in addition to all of our fun Cinderella pumpkins and jack-be-little pumpkins that we grew in our garden. Sarah and the other young neighborhood kids keep a baby paired with each big pumpkin. I love it. I didn't have the courage to tackle three pumpkins without Travis's help, and he didn't return home from work until 7:30. We decided to just carve one altogether using Travis's design. We Cougar fans have to make a statement in our Ute stronghold. Travis tries to not be a contentious fan, as a member of the bishopric and a doctor with a variety of patients to relate to, so this is a strong  public statement for him. Inside our home there is no tempering his loyalty to the Cougars

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
