Decorating for Christmas

We've been slowly putting our Christmas stuff up slowly this year.
Tonight we decided to put up the tree downstairs.
Britton really like putting the balls on the tree.
He has gotten so big!
24 weeks!

On the Go Thanksgiving Outreach

Instead of 150 homes this year, On the Go Thanksgiving Outreach ministered to 500.
Our team made our way across the field to the area that we have always ministered to. As we walked by the kids, we inherited a whole team that "helped" us deliver pies!
Ben decided to give one of the little boys a lift!
All the girls wanted to help Bethany with the pies.

Our team!
We had a great time with Bethany and really enjoyed ministering to those in need.
We've gone every year since we've been married, 6 years!

Fall Leaves

Brandon was gone again this weekend, so Britton and I decided to go to Oma and Papa's house.
Britton helped Papa rake some of the leaves.
Papa had even bought him his own rake!
After raking for while, Britton and Papa went for a wagon ride...
into the leaves!
After the wagon, it was time to get out the car!

Papa has been working on a fire pit for awhile and before we left, Britton decided to help him out!

It's A Girl!

It was time to see what our child was and to make sure that everything looked healthy! It's a girl and everything looks great!
We are so excited! Brandon did ask the ultrasound tech to let him guess before she said what it was. When she pulled everything up, he said "it's a boy!" She looked at him and said, "where the heck do you see boy parts." He said "it's a girl?, oh crap!"
After we had left the appointment I asked him if he realized what he had said, he said no. When I told him, he said that all he could think about was tampons, a wedding, boyfriends, etc. What an amazing journey we are on! God has blessed our family so much and continues to do so! Britton is getting the baby sister he wanted!
