Future Grass-Cutter!

The other day Jeremy was mowing the grass and I looked out to see D.J. sitting on the tractor. I didn't know if his father knew that he was on the tractor, but after assessing the situation, decided that he was not going to hurt the tractor or be hurt. So, instead of telling him to get off, I ran for my camera and snapped a couple shots! :)

After he saw me, he started putting on a show. He started singing Hallelujah and Praise ye the Lord. He was even standing and sitting on the alternate words like you are supposed to! (although he was the only one singing, and thus singing all the words) :)

50th Anniversary Party!

On Saturday, my grandparents celebrated their 50th Anniversary. Here are some pictures of the day.

Some shots of some of the guests.

Some of the cousins playing with bubbles that Grandma and Grandpa had gotten for them.

Cutting the cake and feeding each other.

When we were children, we asked Grandma how she had kissed Grandpa at their wedding because she was so much shorter than he was. She told us that she had stood on the altar. She was joking of course, but we believed her. So, as their 50th approached, she told us that at their party, they were going to show us how it was "really done." So, here is the proof, no altar was stood on! :)

The whole clan does not get together very often, so when we do, we like to get a picture. Here is Grandma, Grandpa, their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren! (33 total) It made for a difficult time of getting everyone in!

Bike Ride!

Uncle Larry was riding on a dirt bike, so some of his nephews and nieces decided that they needed rides. Being the loving uncle, he dutifully complied! :)


Here are some of the cousins playing together at Grandma's house before the party. The times of them all being together are few and far between, so they really enjoyed themselves.

Youth Convention

We had youth convention this past weekend. We had service at our church on Friday evening. Then on Saturday afternoon, we had games, followed by pizza, and ending with service at the Allentown church. Sunday morning, everyone had service at their own churches, and we ended out the weekend with service at the Northampton church on Sunday evening. We really enjoyed the weekend.

Here are some pictures of Saturday afternoon. Here are some of the kids playing basketball.

Here are some playing volleyball.

Here is D.J. playing soccer.

Brandon playing with his laptop.

Then there was D.J. and Brandon's highlight- sharks and minnows! They played with the big kids, and although there were some close calls, they did not get run over. :)

After all of his hard running in sharks and minnows, Brandon had to stop for a drink break!

Happy Anniversary to Mom and Dad

I want to wish my parents a happy anniversary. We love you guys and hope that you have a wonderful day!

Graduation Time!

D.J. and Brandon have graduated! Brandon to a big-boy bed, and D.J. to the top bunk. Tonight we put the rails up and they moved into their new beds. They were both quite excited over it. However, Brandon kept getting up every two seconds. He liked his newfound freedom and decided to take advantage of it.

Here are pictures of them in their new beds.

Time with the Greats!

This past weekend we were able to spend some time with my Grandma and Grandpa. We enjoyed our time, but I forgot to take my camera, so no pictures. :-(
