We spent this last weekend with some of our dear friends and all of our children on the Henderson's family farm. We had such a wonderful time and made memories that will last forever! The farm belonged to Nicole's grandparents who have passed away, but they have kept the farm in their family. Nicole was able to share pics of her family over the years on that farm and it was special to be there. What a leagacy and tradition to be able to leave your future generations!
I will post some pics of the weekend later, but in the meantime just know that the forementioned "gang" included the very scary and dangerous William's, Morrow's, and Henderson's (and obviously us) and the booming noise was them having some gun-time out in the woods. And to reassure, if you know Nicole and Austin, the gun-shooting activities were extremely safe and caution was first priority!
...will post pics soon!

On a walk back to the house with Derek, Em found this caterpillar and of course wanted to keep it. They chose to set it free! If you know the Kramer's, we encourage the releasing of all things great and small...well unless it can bite and sink poison into your body! We think it is so funny how she loves all kinds of creepy crawly things...there is no doubt that she is my daughter! (if you are curious about the booming noise in the background...the rest of the gang was back in the woods with the guns. Em had to take a pee pee break.)

I think the ultrasound pics below are hilarious!!!! I can't stop looking at them. Is it just me or is his "boyness" very apparent? And I love the next pic...his little profile is so handsome and precious to me. I can't wait to see his sweet face. I love the shape of his forhead and his nose.
We just feel so incredibly blessed that everything looks great and that he is growing well and strong. Now...onto names! I don't even want to imagine how hard this is going to be. Boys seem so much harder to name than girls. Any suggestions are welcome, but don't be offended if they make me laugh:) Derek and I had a hard time deciding with Emily and we kept saying that if she was a boy it would have taken much longer.
Thanks to you that are praying for us...we are so thankful and appreciative! We'll keep you updated!
Emily loves to "dance ballet" these days and it is pretty comical. This video was the shortest one of the night. It was the quickest to post, but unfortunately by this point, she was just goofing off (as usual). I actually really like her booty dance, but you can decide for yourself:)
Disciple Now Weekend was awesome...we had a great time with our youth group. This is Derek with his Freshmen guys...they are a crazy group!
Chad will be blackmailed for years to come with the photos we got of him! He was hilarious in a skit that they did.
The group having a blast while praising God and listening to Manic Bloom with our very own David Stevenson...so talented!
Sweet Kolbster and Mia...they have very similar knee injuries on opposite knees...Kolby just had surgery and Maria is probably headed that direction (stubborn girl:):)!! They had to take a break! No mosh pit for these girls...haha!
NICE booty shot Ems! Emily got some new low rise cargo pants and we were laughing hysterically at this sight of her booty...again I have no clue why it is turned sideways.
Emily and I went to lunch with my mom for her birthday and my sweet great aunts. They are Emily's great-great aunts. They were my grandma's sisters (she passed away before she got to meet Em as did my precious great-grandma). They would have loved Emily and I think it is such a blessing that Emily can at least have this connection to them. Thanks Aunt Mamie and Aunt Dodie for a fun and yummy lunch!
Mischevious little thing!

Happy Birthday to my mom today! You are a wonderful mom and an amazing Mimi. We all love you so very much! I don't know what we'd do without you! Happy Happy Birthday! (Hopefully you'll get the full rendition of "Happy Birthday" this weekend from Ems.)
