Suzy took a class in Wisconsin last week. Joanna and Tabitha
went to pick her up and spend time with Adam and Mary.
It was so much fun to see them and spend some time together.
We stopped in Chicago on our way back to Michigan.
We always enjoy seeing the kids.
(and Lloyd and Bethany of course :-)

X-treme Bounce Zone

The girls had a Sunday School Class party at
X-treme Bounce Zone. They had an absolute blast!!

Rachel & Sharon took their Sunday School classes.
They even had fun! :-)

Abby went to help with the kids. It was her
birthday so we made her wear this crazy hat.

Happy Fall!

There is something about these fall months that makes you want to bake! Here is a recipe of pumpkin bread that doesn't last long in our house! :) What are some of your favorite things you like to make around this time of year?

Pumpkin Bread

5 eggs
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
1 can (15 oz) solid-pack pumpkin
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 packages (3 oz) cook & serve vanilla pudding mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add oil & pumpkin; beat until smooth.
Combine remaining ingredients; gradually beat into pumpkin mixture.
(chocolate chips are optional, but highly suggested! :)
Pour batter into five greased loaf pans. Sprinke with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 325 for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Enjoy!! :)
