Abigail is related to Grandma Maas too. Today after lunch Caleb left the peanut butter bowl a little too close to Abigail while he was going to get more apples and you can see the results. It seems that I have a peanut butter fan in the making. I am also including a couple of pictures from Indian Summer which was last Monday. We went out to play in the yard and of course Abigail decided that the slide is much more fun to walk up than to bother with the ladder. She already has the nickname trouble... just wait until she starts walking!!

Hannah turned 4 on August 26th. She wanted to be a princess and have a princess cake. Glenn likes the picture of the cake by itself because he thinks it looks like it is coming to get you. Hannah had fun at her party with her cousins (actually Sonja's cousins) Kyle and Ehren, her Aunt Amy Jo, Great Grandparents: Ed & Jean Nelson, Eileen Hansen, and Earl & Ruth Reynolds, and Grandpa Roger and Teena. We can't believe she is already 4!!
At the beginning of August we went camping for the weekend at Green Lakes State Park near Syracuse, NY with our friends, the Cronks, from Houghton. It was fun going to the beach, hanging out at camp, having bonfires, sharing food, catching up and having fun. We hope to do it again next year if we are around.
Just uploaded this cute picture from church a few weeks ago. Glenn's Grandma and Grandpa Earl and Ruth Reynolds stopped by Waterloo, NY on their way to and from Nova Scotia where they took a bus tour. It was so fun to visit with them and get spoiled. We took the opportunity after church to get a picture of the kids with 5 of their 8 great grandparents. It has been fun to live in Waterloo for a little while near Sonja's grandparents, Ed and Jean Nelson and Eileen Hansen. It was a very sunny day and that is why the kids are squinting.

Caleb turned 6 on July 15th. We started the day with a waffle breakfast at Grandma and Grandpa Nelson's pool with lots of fruit and whipped cream for toppings. Afterwards the kids swam with their cousins Kyle and Ehren. We didn't figure birthday cake went too well with breakfast so we had cake and ice cream Sunday afternoon and Sonja's 3 grandparents were able to join us. Caleb wanted a boat cake and it turned out pretty cute with 3 little people made of starbursts. Glenn was quite proud of his rescue ring. Caleb loved the cake and said the people were himself, Hannah and Lydia and they each got to eat themselves. Caleb's favorite gift was little Army men sized cowboys and indians that have had skirmishes all over our house. You can see them on the table in front of his cake.

Well, it finally happened, Russell Nelson (Sonja's brother) and Camy Chipe tied the knot. We were all present at the ceremony and two of our cuties were in the ceremony. Caleb was dressed to kill in his tux and Hannah was a sweet little flower girl.
It was a fun weekend with a rehearsal dinner party the day before at the Chipe's lake house. We spent the week before the wedding in Dayton at Uncle Bob's house and were able to help with some of the pre-wedding stuff and got to hang out with them a bit. It was fun and Sonja is excited to have a new sister!!

I am a big fan of going to yard sales. We have found some neat treasures in other people’s junk. One of my favorite yard sales is the Houghton VFD yard sale on Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends every year. We have had two yard sales ourselves. One in Waterloo, before moving to Houghton, and just this last Saturday as we are preparing to leave Houghton and head back to Waterloo. I was not impressed with our yard sale in

This past weekend we went to a wedding shower for Sonja's brother Russ and his fiance Camy (They are the two at the far right). We had a fun time with them and many old church friends at the shower. It was also fun for Glenn to play basketball with Camy's cousin Dutsu (blue shirt in the middle) who we met on our trip to Ohio in February. We were also able to spend time with Sonja's Grandma Hansen and also her Dad, Roger Nelson, as well as hang out with her Aunt Amy and her Uncle Paul and their kids Zack, Ehren, and the infamous Kyle. Over all it was a good weekend and it was fun to get out of Houghton for a while.

We had Abigail dedicated this past Sunday, Mother's Day, since we wanted Pastor John to dedicate her at our church. Since they are leaving and so are we, we didn't have many Sundays left to choose from so... it was kind of a spur of the moment thing. The picture isn't that good of the dedication so including a good one of her taken yesterday 5/16/06 for your viewing pleasure.
