Long Time No Post.....Catch up Time!!

Wow, where did the summer go? Not for sure either. We had an awesome summer and did lots of fun stuff! Made our annual weekend trip to the lake which is always a nice time to get away. Mom had both her knees replaced 7 weeks apart. That was interesting. Things got pretty busy during that time. We had over 75 tomato plants out and about 25 pepper plants. Needless to say they produced and produced and produced. We put up enough tomatoes to feed an army it felt like. We will sure enjoy it all this winter though!! We are so glad Mom made the decision to have it done and hope to have her back in full swing next year! She is doing wonderful:) We went to the Pilot Grove Rodeo, St Louis Zoo, Grants Farm, and State Fair. Isaac had a great time at all events. We can't wait to make many more memories!!

Abby back to school, 1st grade to be exact. Wow, hard to believe my 1st niece is already in 1st grade. Time sure does fly by when you're having fun! She is doing great and loves it. Isaac asks every night when we get home if he can do his homework. Ha, he will soon realize that isn't so much fun!! Harvest is in full swing and some are about to finish up. Isaac got his 1st ride in the combine and loved it! He loves being on the farm. He wasn't home when they combined the corn and beans at the house so he missed out on them:( Oh well, he isn't quit old enough to understand that he missed out. Next year may be a whole different story! Enjoy the pictures as I try to play catch up! I had no intentions of banning my blog but the busy summer took over.
Did I mention we got A LOT of rain this spring??

Rocking his baby. He loves his baby, it goes everywhere with him!!

Whew, so glad that winter has finally made its departure. We have been enjoying all this nice sunny dry weather. I was beginning to think that it was going to rain forever. With the warmer weather comes playtime outside. Isaac has enjoyed going out and playing and playing and playing some more. He is actually starting a little tan, so cute!!

Having a good 'ol time!!!

Easter Sunday

We had a very blessed Easter. The weather was perfect. Isaac and I did have to do a lot of traveling but oh well, it was worth it.
Me and Isaac Easter Morning.

Looking for the eggs that the Easter Bunny hid. They were all full of change.....oh my!!
Molly, Abby, and Isaac at Kim's on Easter. Mom made the 2 Easter baskets and also the cake. I sure hope I got her talent!!


Easter Egg Hunt

On the Sunday before Easter we went to the Imhoff's for an Easter Egg hunt. We even got a surprise visit for the Easter Bunny. Isaac was a little scared at first but then sure wanted something out of his basket so he decided to give it a try!!

Isaac thought it was so funny to get the Easter Bunny's tail. It was the funniest thing ever.

Picking up his eggs.

Oh, I got it!!!

Dying Easter Eggs

The Sunday before Easter we got together to dye easter eggs. Molly and Isaac lasted about 19 minutes and they went on their merry little way playing with other things. Abby stuck it out and helped with the whole 3 dozen of regular eggs and 2 dozen of blown eggs.

Easter Pictures

I decided to try to get some Easter pictures of Isaac. With the help from Mom we managed to get some. Kids sure do make picture taking a challenge. They don't want to sit still, look at the camera, smile or anything. Oh well, we got enough to get our card made and sent out. Here are some of my favorites!!

Handsome little man!



Better late than never.....right!! Well retreat was a BLAST. We had the time of our lives!! Ashley and I got a little late start because I over slept but still made it to Branson in good time! We were unpacked by 2 and started getting busy. I managed to get 21 pages done through the weekend and was very pleased. I will try to get some pictures of my layouts to share. I was very excited about them!! When we headed down it was beautiful, sunny, and warm. When we came home it was cloudy, cold, and raining/icing. We made it home safely just wasn't as pleasant!!

This was our table space. We each had our own table, they were in pods of 4. After looking at the picture I don't know how we found the room on the table to actually work!!!!

Almost ready to go!!!

After a brief scare of the possible flu I have my supplies packed and ready to load. I started not feeling well last night but was just nauseous. Then at 11 Isaac decided he need to throw up but he didn't anymore. We had a pretty restless night but slept until 9 this morning. Got to work at 10 and we are both feeling 100% better!! Thanks goodness. I would have been so upset if I would not have been able to go to retreat!!

All my goodies for my Secret Scrapin' Sister. It is played kind of like a Secret Santa. Sound be fun!!!
