So, this is one room we have finished. We've been busy since we moved in, thought you might like to see why we haven't been doing much but WORK, WORK, WORK!

Funny Baby

This is what Mason is doing almost every morning and after naps. I guess he likes his bed!

Hall of Fame

Ryan was inducted into the Bethel College Hall of Fame on Sunday, September 9th. We are all extremely happy for him. Although he's been very modest about this and hasn't told anyone, I decided to post it on the blog because I'm so proud of him! The focus of his job as a basketball coach remains to impact the lives of young players and his priorities are always to honor God in his life and to be an excellent father and leader in our family. Although this award doesn't change anything for him, it's still nice when others recognize his hard work and success. We love you, Ryan!

Paddle Boat Races

So, this is my sister-in-law Molly and Nolan and me in the paddleboat race this weekend at my parents. We got 2nd place and are seriously ticked, we lost to some 12 year olds. Better luck next year.

Birthday Boys!

I cannot believe Nolan will be three this week. He is such a fun, energetic boy and I can't imagine what we did for entertainment before he came along. He's really loving all this Birthday talk, he really gets it this year, and since his families live far apart, he's having several parties, and lots of cake! In case anyone doesn't know, that's my brother Kendrick in the picture with Nolan. I had Nolan on Kendrick's birthday just for fun! Kendrick is turning 30 this year. And I almost had Mason on mine, missed it by two days...and Ryan and my mom also have the same birthday...just some fun little facts. Anyway, the boys were pumped about their cubbies cake. Who knew you could decorate a cake for a 30 year old and a 3 year old and they would both love it? (The presents differed slightly though, Kendrick didn't get any footie pajamas).
