Christmas Camp 2015

This past weekend we were at Cross Christmas Camp.  Yay!  It was action packed, especially since we had been in Kansas all week and the kids had been down on the farm with my parents.  Gus was a little sick...but all and all it was very good and loads of fun.  Here are the few pictures I managed to snap.

Rose and Patch... we were trying to get all three toddlers together...

 We finally got Bernadette in the shot.  Totally worth it...

 Grandpa with the 3 little boys.  Can you see why my family calls Dominic "The Judge"?

The ever classy Librande Family

And then Santa came!  

Dominic was less than pleased.

And there you have it.  Another year in the books.

Late fall 2015

And, here are a few pictures from late Fall, early Winter 2015.

First off, Thanksgiving.
Dommy and I took a pre-meal nap...and this sleeping boy was just too precious.  I had to take a few pictures.
Notice how dirty his little hands are...clearly we were at the farm.

Bernadette and Rose...looking...umm....

The Turkey!  Yes, it even tasted as good as it looks!

Grandma Anne and Lukey

The feast plated up.

Back home, Gus and Bernadette playing in the snow that didn't last very long.

And, we got new windows all through the kitchen.  Gus was happy to watch...and we got to enjoy the windows for a whole month before we moved.

And finally, a few shots of Gus at his first Christmas concert.  He did great!

Last post of pictures coming shortly!

Halloween 2015 and a pretty dress.

I am way behind sharing pictures here...so let's get caught up!
First off, here are a few shots of the kids this Halloween.  
We had Olaf, Anna and a Ninja.  

A sweet little moment.

And here are a few more fun pictures.  Bernadette helped me out with a post for the blog about a pretty dress.  We had fun...but she posed for pictures a lot better once Gus joined us.

More pictures coming shortly!

Fall Leaf Pictures 2015

We took our annual fall leaf pictures over the past week...not that I am above taking a few more.  These first pictures are from Camden State Park, near Marshall.  We spent the week there while Bill was (and still is) in Mexico.  As always the experienced proved just how frustrating it can be to try and get all of the kids together for a group shot.

Dommy thought the leaves were great fun!

And, here is the big jump!  

The jump...well, not for Gus.

And after.  Gus remains unmoved.  

And then we got home on Sunday and found a whole bunch of our own leaves.

We have been enjoying some remarkably wonderful October weather this week so I feel pretty confident that we will be raking leaves and jumping into piles a few more time this week!

All the best,
Nancy, Gus, Bernadette and Dommy

I think we need to get Bernadette a bunny!
