Andy and Rosa went to Indiana over Veteran's Day Weekend and stocked up on their Boilermaker's gear! Even got some for Boiler himself! They came back for round two of their photoshoot. Love these people!

Last year, I took high school senior photos for Ryan and Quintin's older brother, Nolan. So I was extremely happy when their mothers called to say they wanted me to take photos for these awesome Eagle Scouts! What an honor - for them - and for me to take their Eagle Scout portraits. Congratulations Quintin and Ryan!!

You hear it all the time..."Grandchildren are wonderful!" It is true! Two of my granddaughters came over for lunch after church a week ago. Roger had made some awesome lasagna and we had some leftover so some of our family came over and the two granddaughters love hamming it up for Gigi!
Jocelynn asked me today, "Gigi, why haven't you put the pics from last weekend or the one from Thanksgiving on the internet, yet? I have to update my Facebook profile!"
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with old friends and new. I miss my friends at my former church, but I love my new church, especially going with more of my family.
|Our deep-fried turkey. Don't you just want to pull off that skin?|
|Our friend, Mike, has deep-fried one of our turkeys every year for years.|
|Jeremy - I think he is stuffed - waiting for group photo.|
|Look at my drawings, Uncle Jeremy!|
|Family and friends - old and new!|
|"Take a picture of me and baby, Gigi! Will you send it to me on email?"|
|The not so fun part of Thanksgiving...|
|It was a tight-squeeze, but we managed to put 18 people in here!|
|"What! We have to do dishes?"|
|"Yay! We're all going to bed and doing the clean-up tomorrow." Veronica said, "Afterall, the world could come to an end tonight and then we won't have to do them."|

Erin's having another baby! She wanted some family/maternity portraits before the baby comes in just a few short weeks. I LOVE THIS FAMILY! Steve amuses himself and those around him and Erin is one of the calmest, friendliest people I know. How can you not love those little redheads? Can't wait to meet the newest member of the family.
|Patiently waiting for baby!|
|Yes, their last name starts with "P"|

Here we go again!! While I love our bungalow, I don't like that most of it is white, especially the carpet. We are slowly remodeling our home and when Roger's sister, Phyllis, called to say that she and her family wanted to come visit for Veteran's Day weekend, we said we would love to have them, but we were already planning on painting. Being the great relatives they are, they still said "yes, that they would come and help!"
|Here we go! We spent all day on Thursday getting everything out of the kitchen.|
|A couple of "before pics." We've had splotches of paint on the walls for months, trying to figure out what color we like.|
|Before pics of the painters!|
|Are we going to like all this color? It's so scary to pick colors!|
|I'm not too afraid of heights, but more than that, I don't want the main breadwinners falling off the ladder!|
|Veronica is afraid of heights, but she's usually fine once she's off the ladder.|
|Worn out after one day!|
|Now we begin the after pics!!|
|Ready to go to breakfast! Yes! No more white walls (in the kitchen and dining room, anyway).|
|Baker's Rack back up...|
|Pictures all hung.|
|New angle for the dining room table.|
|Roger will be finishing the cabinets for the next project. We hope to replace the floor tile with wood floors, eventually.|
|We are all happy with the colors.|
Office, bedrooms, and hallway are the only ones left to be painted. Paint! It's magic!!

On Sunday, after church and after Roger and I took photos of the confirmation students (he helped with the lights), Roger asked me to go for a Sunday drive. It was a gorgeous day and since we had already had enough with Halloween with our Trunk or Treats and "no kids coming to our neighborhood", I jumped at the chance.
|While we were taking photos at this turnoff, we saw the wedding photographer taking photos. Soon, the minister started walking towards us when he saw Roger's car...|
|My state is pretty.|
|Fun date with Roger!|
|Took this right before we stopped for dinner. Our Sunday drive was very nice riding with the top down.|
