This school year, I decided to branch out and take pictures of the kids instead of having them done at a photographer. Would you be so kind as to comment on which pics of the kids you like the best? Thanks!

Who woulda thunk it?

I didn't really think that anyone loved the season of fall as much as me. However, after witnessing my daughter sing, dance and laugh with the beautiful autumn leaves(or leafses, as she calls them), I believe she may love it even more:)

3 Years-Old. Where does the time go?

Today marks our little girl's 3rd birthday. I can't believe that 3 years has gone by. She is such a girlie girl and adds so much fun and character to our family.

This past Saturday, we celebrated Elsi's birthday with family. It was a sunny warm day and we enjoyed fellowship with friends and family. We praise God for the blessings of 3 years with our daughter. We love you Elsi Grace!

There's nothing like fresh picked apples from the orchard in September. In this case, it was an 85 degree day in September (sure, now summer arrives), but the apples were delicious!

Happy Birthday Bill!

Saturday we celebrated Bill's 71st birthday. The sons who live in the area and their families all attended. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed some wonderful family time together.
