I'm Back...

It has been too long since my last entry. Here is what we have been doing the last few weeks. As you read our various activities notice our crazy weather pattern. I am kind of missing wearing my flip flops everyday!

Saturday, September 27th was Homecoming at Carroll College. As part of the festivities was a mattress race. The faculty was one of the groups. Dale was on the mattress and they had to carry him from one end of the football field to the other. Alan is the one in the yellow shirt with his hand in the air. Notice the head-start they had. It turned out that the head-start didn't matter, but they both had a lot of fun participating.
NOTE: LOOK AT THE BEAUTIFUL WEATHER!!

A week later, Saturday, October 6th we were running to the store to buy snow bibs and gloves so we could play in the snow.

Even our dog, 'Babe' was trying to stay warm. He would run outside, pee, and then come lay by the fire. It was quite funny to watch.


Friday, October 17th Dale and Gracie playing golf with dad while breaking in their new clubs. Thanks grandma and grandpa! NOTE: We are back to sun and short sleeve shirts!

And finally today, Abi is having fun playing at the fall festival!

I would enjoy just a little of your cool weather. The high today is 80 degrees!! Are those sandals Gracie is wearing in the snow picture? Gotta love being caught unprepared for a snow fight. Kinda like a snow storm in Corpus on Christmas Eve ;)

I've been missing you! That really is some crazy weather! Abi is looking so big. Emma still says, "that's the park I go to with Abi and Sister Hansen" every time we drive past Holly on Rodd Field! You are greatly missed!
