Karina in November


Learning to climb. Someone forgot to put the step stool away.

Looking good with new glasses. Now she gets less bumps and bruises on her forehead.

Reformation Day @ the Erbers Oct 31 -By Britta

Britta turns 13!!!! Oct. 25, 2008

Britta has a lot of responsibilities as the oldest of 8 kids. She is a great example to the younger ones, and blessing to have as a daughter. A special gift that she received this year was a "hope chest" that she got to pick out while in Branson, MO in the fall. Without her knowledge, Bill fixed it up, and painted it, and lined it with cedar. Then, Armin and I lined the top with contact paper, and had it ready for her "real" birthday.

Happy Birthday Britta, We love you.

Blackhawk Statue, 2008

We took our annual trip to Oregon, IL and visited the Blackhawk statue. It was a beautiful day to enjoy the out-of-doors, and be together as a family.

The kids and Bill went all the way to the bottom. Karina and I thankfully only went down 2 flights.

Christ's Church 10th Anniversary Party

Sept. 19-21 we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of our church. We have been there for 2 years, and are so thankful for our "family" there. We stayed at the Erber's house, and had a great time. Most of the events were right at their house, except Saturday evening we went to the "Ark" for a variety show, pie contest and lots of dancing. We finally learned the Virginia Reel, some kind of Patty-cake dance, and a wagon wheel dance. While at the Erbers we played volleyball, Bocce ball, pinewood derby races, ate lots of yummy food, shot paint ball, sat around campfires, and so much more. Here are a few pictures from the weekend. Enjoy!!
