Party at the Lake

My granddad’s 80th birthday party was at the Lake this year.  It was lots of food, family, and great weather.  Even though the day started out with a major mishap involving a blueberry pie, I think all the evidence has been cleaned up by now.

And check out this great picture from Lizzie’s blog.  Boy, Sam sure does love pumpkins.  I guess it’s good that she’s an October baby.


Merry Christmas! Part 3

After a few days with Brian’s family, we ventured across the state again to my family.  Luckily, there was still some snow on the ground (from Christmas morning that somehow missed Brian’s parents’ house).

Sam wanted to make “foot holes” in the snow.

We also spent a day at the lake.   I haven’t been there since this picture, taken at Thanksgiving 2007.  (Brian is holding a 4 week old Sam.)  The lake has changed a lot in some ways and not much at all in others.
