Lydia's Cake

Lydia was in charge of making the cake for a baby shower we had this past weekend. She has been practicing and was excited, but nervous about making her "first cake" all by herself. She did an awesome job and it tasted delicious!

While we were at the baby shower, the boys went to
a birthday party for David. He turned 16! :-)

Raking at Grandpa's!

Today some of us went over to Grandpa's and raked for him.

Grandpa's Uncle Harold built this playhouse during the depression. Mom, Aunt Susan and Uncle Paul use to play in it when they were kids.

The kids made their first snowmen this year with the little snow we had. :-)

Suzy's Trip

Suzy had a great time in Florida.
The weather was beautiful!
They went to the beach before they left for home.

She was able to visit with Jim, Kari & the kids while she was there. Suzy had a lot of fun climbing the 62 foot wall.
She made it all the way to the top!

Grandpa's Home

Grandpa went home yesterday and he's doing well! He will be having open heart surgery in the next couple of weeks. Please keep praying for him.
We had Grandpa & Aunt Susan over for dinner tonight.
Grandpa is on fluid restrictions, but after having Dr. Pepper
for the first time he became addicted! :-)
Rachel made a delicious pumpkin dessert.
Hannah is always writing notes... and it doesn't hurt to
label your stuff when living in a big family! ;-)We bought a new game "No Brainer" today for a dollar. It was funny to watch everyone play it. They looked ridiculous... but it made us laugh!
