We headed down to Cancun again this Thanksgiving, and Shaughn did not even get deported! Christine's fiance, Taylor, and his family joined us along with Oma and Opa. We had a wonderful time as usual!
Opa Reading and Relaxing
Shaughn a Snoozing!
and that was before the shot of Tequila!
And he wonders how he gained 12lbs in 4 days! And this was just the first plate!
(there may have been a little cheating going on!)
Tim didn't want to do anything special for his 50th Birthday! He was feeling a little old, I mean sad! Our dearest friends offered to cook him dinner for his birthday! She beats Martha Stewart and Paula Dean. She is the best cook. She invited my parents over also. We had a wonder time.
Thank you so much Susan and Peyton!
You are the best!
I don't know what got into me this year, but I had a great time making decorations and decorating for Halloween. I haven't done a thing in years but really got into it this year. For the first time ever, I forgot to buy pumpkins to carve! Yikes!!! We ended up eating spaghetti squash on Halloween and Kirby came up with the idea to carve it. He drew the line when I told him I was going to put them at the front door for Jack-O-Lanterns.
I call these our RED NECK PUMPKINS!
I found a couple of cool spell book designs online and made them. I picked up the books at the local Goodwill. They came out really cool!
I can finally clean those cob webs off the ceiling!
This is one of the many beer tents. In the late afternoon everyone is calm but by sundown everyone is standing on the benches prosting and singing. It is really something to see. Someone asked me if we have an equivalent in the United States and the closest thing I could come up with is Mardi Gras, and I don't even know if that is comparable.
When I think of a German this is the image I get. What a great outfit. Tim and I thought it was really neat that so many of the Germans dress in the traditional outfits. I would say that about 80% are dressed up, even the teenagers and young adults. Next year you may see Tim in lederhosen!
The Happy Couple
Our friend Susan, aka Martha Stewart, hosted the wedding at her house. She planned everything but the food. It was unbelievable. Pam and Don were thrilled!
I did the cake. It was chocolate with whisky cherry filling and cream cheese frosting. I have to say it tasted pretty good! The bride and groom were happy~
The Wedding Family and Friends
There were 30 people at the wedding.
Us with the beautiful bride!
Best of luck to Don and Pam!
