Pumpkin Carving and Marine Corps Birthday Ball

This past weekend was filled with fun festivities.  We carved our pumpkins and roasted the pumpkin seeds.

Then on Saturday night,  my husband and I were invited as guests to the 236th United States Marine Corps Birthday Ball.  Our friend is a Colonel in the Marine Corps and we homeschool with his family.  He and his wife asked us to celebrate with them.  The video that we saw prior to our dinner was so touching as it highlighted how our men and women in the Marines have responded with bravery and courage to the most difficult and heartbreaking situations.  It was the same video that Justin Timberlake saw at the Marine Corps Birthday Ball that he attended.  I don't think I have much in common with Timberlake, but I will have to say I agree with what he wrote HERE about his experience at his Marine Corps Ball.

It was a fun night also!  The last time I saw my man in a tux was on our wedding day so it was awesome to see him all jazzed up and I had fun shopping for my accessories to match the dress I borrowed from friend :)  Here are a few pics:

I love your pumpkins! You all did a great job!

You and your hubby look awesome for the ball. Glad you had a good time!

Many blessings,

So glad you and your husband had a great time at the Marine ball. You look so pretty. Love the carved pumpkins, we carved out last Sunday and I had to throw it out Friday as it was going bad already. Kids were very disappointed:( Voted for you today

These are very neatly cut pumpkins. I am impressed. I have joined in your NOBH for the first time this month and have thoroughly enjoyed finding new blogs and posting more. I was hoping you could buzz in and visit my blog which is all about one of God's amazing creatures - the bee. Thank you.
