The Past Week

We have been down at Mom and Dad's for the past week. My brother and his family were up for a visit and it was great to have the whole family together.

I have lots a pictures but they all need to be sorted and edited before I post them.

We are off to Cedar Rapids tonight and then we will get together with Nate's Mother's side of the family tomorrow.

I will post more later and put up a bunch of pictures!

P.S. For those still not sure about what to see in the picture, it is a deer that we saw in Denny and Debbie's backyard.

Can you see something?

This is not a trick and I did not alter the photo, other than to lighten it and add a little contrast so you can see it better. Look behind the trees, see if you can find the eye, nose and ear.

We attempted to make Snowhenge, we used huge pieces of ice/snow chunks!

We arrived home to a driveway full of snow, it took about an 1 1/2 to two hours to clear out, and the end was plowed in!

An Assorment of Pictures

I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything new. A month actually!

Been keeping busy, I painted the living room. Not too much different, just a warmer, darker tan.

I also looked through some old pictures and found some old pictures to post.

We were down at mom and dad's for thanksgiving. I took some pictures of the kids with grandma and grandpa.

Party Pictures!!!

We had a great turn out this year, a lot of awesome costumes!

Thank you to everyone who dressed up, that is one of the best things about Halloween.

I want to thank everyone for all of their hard work, the party went smoothly this year and we couldn't have done it without everyone's help. The food was great and we hope everyone had a good time.

We thought we would give everyone a head start for next year. The theme will be PIRATES! So start looking for eye patches, swords, red sashes, hats, ostrich feathers, boots, one-shot pistols, treasure maps, skulls, and anything else from that era!

And now the photos from this years party!
