Happy Anniversary to us!!!

brooke and i are celebrating our 6-year anniversary on Sunday, the 22nd. we still feel like we're newlyweds....we hope we'll always feel a little like that. tonight, we celebrated with a date. we went to the Fox Valley restaurant in Maylene for supper. we went to get coffee at Starbucks. then, we came back home to catch a concert from the neighborhood kids (see pics below). then, we finished the night by watching the new Steve Carell movie Get Smart. we gave it 3.5 attaboys out of 4. definately worth watching.

it's been a wonderful night. we hope we'll get to celebrate our 66th anniversary one day.



the final song was complete with pyrotechnology...kinda.
here's the band practicing their album cover pose.

House update

still no buyers just yet. our house has been on the market for only 3 weeks, but we're already getting anxious.

one of the best things that has come from this is we have to keep the house neat and in order everyday when we leave in case a realtor brings a potential buyer to view the house. and believe it or not, it's actually been easier than i thought it would be. we're putting our dirty clothes in the hamper and not (gasp!) on the bedroom floor. we put the dishes in the dishwasher, not the sink! we don't leave stacks of junk laying everywhere. it's pretty nice to live in a neat house. brooke and i are bad about letting it get out of control before we can't take it anymore and clean like crazy!

Senior Member Appreciation Dinner 2008

saturday night, we hosted our senior members at church to a Hee-Haw Ho-Down!  we had a bluegrass performer come and play songs.  we served them a good old country meal (chicken fingers, mashed taters, green beans, cornbread, naner puddin, and apple pie).  then, we recreated a Hee-Haw skit as much as possible.  it was a blast!  i think we had more fun than they did!

thanks to everyone who helped out so much to make it such a success!!!
