You can leave us a message! We are goofing around and found this little thing. Who knows if we will like it or not, but we thought we would give it a try! Hope everyone is having a wonderful end of September! We are loving the fall days. Tomorrow we will do one last batch of tomatoes and press some apples for cider! Yum! We will try and get some good pictures to post! Bye for now!

Big sister Annika was such a help this past week. She was more the mother who was mothering her mother! It was kind of fun to be on the receiving end of her hospitality. I felt very spoiled to say the least!
Big sister Charisma giving him his first kiss on the head while he is not even 1 hour old! What a sweet moment to cherish. Charisma, Becca, Reuben, Amelia and Katrina were honored to be invited to go to Milaca to spend time with Grandpa and Grandma Sahlstrom from Sunday until Friday. They had a BLAST! It also made for a nice quiet week here and boy did that make a difference for being able to rest! Thank you Grandpa and Grandma!
Now we are back to activity as usual! Little Simeon can sleep through a lot though!
We love you little one!

When Sam saw the size of Simeon's hands, he made the statement that he sure is a "little Ole"! Grandpa had hands that had seen some tough days! He was a welder and machinist and there were definite signs of hard work that showed in the scars and callouses, but what a thing to be proud of! He created so many things that to this day are testimony of a man that could work hard and succeed at seemingly impossible tasks! This name will be one to truly aspire to!

I was honored to help with the birth again this year. After helping with Erina's birth, I wouldn't have missed this one for anything! Mom went into labor around 5:30. It went so fast! The Midwife Diane Adamski actually made it this time! We will post more photos soon!

Well, I promised to capture some of the playing "wedding", so here it is! Of course the bride was the birthday girl, Charisma, with her flower girls - Amelia, Katrina and Erina. They went out early in the morning and picked tons of flowers for their bouquets.
There were 5 bridesmaids and Annika was the pastor. They tried to convince Reuben to participate, but the large number of girls was a little intimidating! Pictured above are...
Cecelia Trejo, "Pastor" Annika and Noelle Ziemke.
All 6 sisters in their full attire!
Thank you Grandma for taking the time to spend with us last week! We were so blessed to have you here, and we look forward to another visit soon! You are a blessing and you make each one of our lives a little bit richer every time we see you!

In the meantime, we have a houseful of girls today who are playing "wedding" since we gave Charisma a most beautiful wedding dress for her birthday! I will try to capture some photos of this to post! I am so glad that the girls have friends that are not afraid to still play "dress up"! How fun!
We covet your prayers for this birth, and will let you know the BIG NEWS when we know something! Enjoy these early days of autumn, eat some apples (ha) and live each moment to the fullest!

It is hard to believe, but 12 years ago today we welcomed Charisma Faith into our family! She has been such a blessing to our family and is growing into a beautiful young lady! Her favorite thing in the whole world to do is READ, READ, READ! If she ever has a spare moment, that is exactly what we will find her doing! She also enjoys biking, swimming, puzzles, piano, mandolin, dulcimer, singing and babysitting. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARISMA!
