Apple Hill

We made our annual trip to Apple Hill. We enjoyed the donuts and cider and brought a box of B's favorite apples home. Emily enjoyed painting on one of her tiny canvas we had bought her in Paris. It was a fun day except when Kronk got sick!

Happy 11th Birthday Roxy!

She had a great birthday party! Roxy, with 2 friends, went to see The Game Plan (GREAT movie) and then to the mall. Roxy got her ears double pierced! Then to Michaels to get a Bedazzler and to Mel's for dinner...Wow glad this night is done!

Carl, Gentry, Kirsten, Morgan and Michael at Mel's before the dance.

An incredible first for Gent

A week before Homecoming, Kirstens mom had said, 'Don't worry Gentry, Kirsten will look like a million dollars on that night.' Well when Gent got home from Homecoming he said, 'Mom, she was wrong about looking like a million dollars.' I was horrified as I yelled 'WHAT!' He smiled and said 'she looked even better.'

Left high and dry

Gentry walked out the door to walk to school, came back in and said, 'Dad, what did you do to the car?'
Well, we now are looking for a washing machine for the front porch. Does anyone have an extra? It would complete the White Trash look.-

Thank You Tea Party

During the summer a friend, Donna Pagel, had sewing classes for some of our girls. They worked on American Girl outfits and had so much fun. They learned lots! We had a tea party to say 'thank you' and the girls brought all the outfits that they made.

Europe 2007

To celebrate our 15th Anniversary we set off on our greatest adventure of all. 12 days away from real life, we were living our dream! 7 days in Holland and 5 days in Paris. It was unlike anything we had ever expirienced.

Holland Adventures

Food was always an adventure! We enjoyed everything we tried, and didn't even gain a pound!

Standing in front of the Louve. We saw several Monet paintings, the Mona Lisa, and LOTS more.

Many faces of a bridge on the Seine River in Paris.

Notre Dame was magnificent! There was a real mass going on inside while we walked around.

Madeline is 7!

She asked for an ipod and as you can guess by the photo, she got one! We had an extended family swim party and then the six of us braved John's Incredible Pizza for the birthday dinner.
