Here comes the Bride

Congrats Sarah and Danny!!!

The Bride and Groom

My Mom and brother Daniel

Our Family

We celebrated my younger sister Sarah's wedding this weekend. She is the fifth of us ten kids. Can't believe that she is old enough to be married. Nevertheless, she found a wonderful guy from Minnesota. Danny Ruter is a Deputy Sheriff in Boone County. So hopefully the next time I get pulled over by a cop, it will be him.
We had the craziest weather all weekend long...thankfully, the Lord blessed us with clear roads and clear skies for the wedding.

Do your kids believe in Santa?

Every time my 20 month old son sees Santa he appropriately says, "NOAH!!!" I can see a slight resemblance. We like to think that he is oh so spiritual.

Thanksgiving 2008

Little Rock was the destination of our Thanksgiving this year. We had such a wonderful time with all the family together. I'm sure ours was similar to most of yours...eating, shopping, sleeping, laughing, eating some more, movies...etc. However, the kids and the dogs ended up being the main entertainment as usual.

My little 007

We are anticipating the upcoming Quantum Of Solace movie coming out this weekend. Edward is ready. He's been practicing his moves and James Bond faces all day.

Halloween 2008

We spent the day playing outside in 70 degree weather, carving pumpkins, dressing up as a cheetah, and eating lots of candy.
After giving Edward a long bath to remove all the stickiness and sugar, I am ready for bed. Too bad my little boy isn't. I guess we learned a big lesson today. No more then one piece of candy after 7 pm.

Who wants some APPLESAUCE???

Today I went to my parents house to help make buckets of applesauce. There is nothing like homemade applesauce. The entire house smelled AMAZING and obviously like apples, cinnamon, and sugar, YUMMY! We used over four bushel's of apples this time around. Some of the best sauce is made by using a mixture of apples. Today we used Cortland, Honey Crisp, Early Gold, and Gala.
Hopefully all this sauce will last throughout the long winter months until we can make it again next fall.
As you can see, Edward was quite the big helper.

We were able to go to Chicago back in September...don't ask me why its taken so long to finally post about it.
John had to go for business so Edward and myself decided to tag along for some fun. We loved spending time with my sisters Katy and Abby and their husbands. Edward especially enjoyed shopping on Michigan Ave, which happened to be one of my favorites too. He also loved swimming at the hotel, playing at Lego land, eating at Rain Forest Cafe, and riding the subway. Other than one day of torrential rain pour, it was great weather. Too bad the rain came on the day John was off work.
Thanks to Katy, Caleb, Abby, Josh, and Jane for hanging out with us. We had a wonderful time!
