Hi all! We're still around, just struggling through bouts of flu and cold symptoms.

The girls continue to enjoy time spent with friends and family. We had a fun time with cousins, a few weeks ago, visiting an apple orchard. We had brat(wurst)s with strudel and cider for lunch (yum!) and brought home a lot of apples and pears.

The girls have finished their fall co-op session with the local home school group. We should be starting the next session in January.

Other than all that, we've been working our way through colds and school work. The girls have begun working on a couple of new Christmas songs for the upcoming season. Allison is beginning to plan her 7th birthday party! This will be her first "kids party" and she is very excited. Abby's vocabulary is booming again. She's quite an articulate little girl, at 2 and 1/2 years!

I'll try to get some new pictures up in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for staying posted with our family's goings on!


  1. I had to re-read the second paragraph. You had bratwurst for lunch! ha! I thought you were saying the cousins were brats! :)

    You have a very beautiful family. Maybe some day we can meet?


  2. Jennifer,

    Thank you so much! I actually wondered about whether or not to spell out bratwurst and ended up just leaving it as is - hah! That's funny :)
