Garage Sale!

Mindy and Ben decided to have a garage sale last weekend so Mom and I joined in with some "junk" of our own. It was a freezing cold day but we still had a wonderful day and lots of people showed up.

Mindy and Ben are in the process of cleaning out their house and fixing it up so they can sell it and move to a smaller place. Here is a picture of Elianna "helping" Mindy plant some flowers.

The Love Birds!

Since Audra (my engaged cousin) lives right next door to us I have been able to sneak in a few pictures of her and Justin here and there along the way. Here are two of my favorites from the other night when they and all their siblings came over during an evening stroll.

"Delight thyself also in the Lord;
and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart."
Psalm 37:4

Matt is here!!

My brother Matt arrived from Texas and has officially started the building process out on his land. Today he is heading back down to Texas to move the rest of the family back. I am so excited to have them here!

Sweet Elianna

Being an aunt is a wonderful thing!

Audra and Justin

Ok--I realize that I am WAYYY behind in my blog but I will attempt to do a little catching up here.

The buzz around here for the past while has been the exciting upcoming marriage of my sweet cousin Audra to Justin Kastner. We are all greatly rejoicing in the news. They are two quality young people who love God and serve Him greatly through the quiet obedience of their life. I have been so impressed with the way they have carried out their courtship and the high standard that they have set for themselves.

We celebrated the occation with a bridal shower at my aunt and uncle's house.

Erica, Mindy, and Karen: dipping strawberries in chocolate!

Krista Fafach: Using her culinary magic and creating a masterpiece!

Congratulations Audra and Justin!
