This is a picture of our good friend, Maria when she first fell in love! Can't you just see it in her eyes? She and Antonio are great friends from our church. They have 5 children and we love spending time with them all! Sam and Antonio love to hunt and fish together.
Here are the guys after a successful hunt! Reuben, Sam, Roger, Tony and Antonio.
Can you tell the the photographer was NOT on the hunt? HA! Dead giveaway, Ben, in the stark WHITE!
Here is a snap of some of the kids at our Super Bowl Party. We were all engrossed in a couple games of 10,000. Not to brag or anything, but I WON!!!! Gotta show those teens that the adults still come out on top in SOME things, right?
As you can see, our family has grown a little from last year. Kathrin Diconne from Germany and Bombay Wattanasombat from Thailand are members of our clan for the year. They are both foreign exchange students, one from NACEL Open Door, and the other from AFS USA. We have really enjoyed having them as part of our lives, and they add a new perspective to each day. They have alot to share about their countries, and our lives are enriched a little more with each person we have into our home!
Sam and I have been falling more deeply in love every day for 20 years and we have been blessed with 9 wonderful children! They are Benjamin (20), Annika (18), Charisma (16), Becca (14), Reuben (12), Amelia (10), Katrina (8), Erina (6), Simeon (4)and Johann (2)! We love the Creator of this world with our whole hearts!
