Computer Woes

Well I just wanted to post a quick note that neither one of our computers is currently working so there may not be too many posts for a while. The good thing is we foresaw this coming and backed up all our files and pictures. Our desktop made really weird noises for a week or so and now it just flashes a blue screen and lots of numbers. Seeing that my husband is in the middle of harvest we probably won't have time to shop for a computer for a few weeks. So if you need to get a hold of me just give me a ring, you know, the old fashion way. :)
And I promise many wonderful posts once we are up and running again.

Rejoice with us!

Rejoice, rejoice, and again I say rejoice! For the past 8 months we have been the proud home owners of two homes. Yes two you read that correctly. And Just under two weeks ago God saw fit to sell our house in Indy and we closed on it today!! Hip hip hooray! Thank you Lord for this blessing. With the economy, housing market, etc. the way it is we know it is only by His hand and almighty grace that we are not buckling down for the winter with two mortgages. I don't think it has quite hit us yet but I would say it will when it comes time to pay bills next month! Wow I can't believe it is finally sold. Below is a picture of our home with the very proud Sold Sign displayed in front. Thank you to all of you who have been supporting us during this adventure and praying along with us for this sale! We are forever grateful.

And while Kreg and I were at the closing, Aiden got to play with grandma. He apparently had a lot of business to conduct on the phone today. He was very talkative and had to multitask to get all his calls made i.e. push his shopping cart while talking on the phone and ride on his car while talking on the phone. Enjoy the pics! And rejoice with us for God is the Great Provider.

Weekend Away

This past weekend while Kreg continued to work hard in the fields, Aiden and I each had a little time away. On Friday I took Aiden down to Indy and handed him off to my mom so I could go to Chicago and have fun with my college roommate, Ms. Heather Dunbar. We had a great time catching up and hanging out. Friday night she took me to Naperville (where she works) and we did some shopping, hung out with another college friend (Ms. Gabe Henderson) and ate dinner at a restaurant called Cosi, where we got to roast marsh mellows right at our table. So fun! And since I was "child free" we even lived it up and went to a movie. We saw Get Smart....very funny by the way.

The marsh mellow presentation!

Roasting over the fire....splendid!
Saturday we ventured downtown and shopped most of the day. I had my first fruit drink from Jamba Juice...yum yum yummyy...and was in the biggest Macy's store I have ever seen. We met my brother-in-law, Kent, for dinner at Gino's East (amazing Chicago pizza) and upon much searching ended the night at a unique yogurt shop, in which I can not remember the name (pregnancy brain)....but it was really good and had all kinds of unique toppings. Sorry I did not really take any pictures of Saturday...guess I was having too much fun to remember to do so.

Aiden had a great time with grandma and grandpa. My dad had Aiden all by himself Saturday morning (I'm very proud of him). I talked to dad later that day in which he proceeded to tell me my son is quite a handful and he could get nothing done while he was awake. Oh how this made me smile. I responded with a resounding oh yes, yes he is. I am glad to now have some sympathy from my dad on the matter. haha....of course every moment of getting nothing else done is worth it because I know he will only be little for so long. Mom kindly sent me some pictures of their weekend...looks like he didn't miss me too much.

Just look at that smile.

Torturing his grandpa.

Playing with cousin Luke.

And I am happy to report harvest is continuing to go well. Kreg was happy to call and tell me Saturday night that they had all the beans harvested! hip hip hooray! Just a few more weeks to go. Hopefully the good weather will continue.

Well harvest is well underway now and Aiden is in tractor heaven. He LOVES tractors! It was my turn to take dinner to the fields last night and feed the men so Aiden and I went early and fed them so we could take some tractor rides. And just a little bit ago we got back from riding again today. Aiden loves it...so I love it.

Aiden and Kreg riding with Kreg's Uncle Pat in the Combine. Isn't it huge? Even I am amazed.

Away they go! (picking beans)

My beautiful dinner spread. We had hot zesty beef sandwiches, green beans, salad, chips, and cookies off the back of one of the pick-ups.

Today Aiden rode with Kreg's dad in the combine. He LOVED it! He had his very own seat...complete with tray, snacks, and sippy cup. I even heard rumor he fell asleep for a little bit. I think he rode for close to two hours...picking corn. I think the first thing Aiden said to me this morning was "tractor!" yes yes Aiden in a little bit.

And here they are dumping the grain into one of the semi's. Kreg then drove the semi to the grain bins and put the corn in the dryer. I rode along and I was quite impressed with my husband's manly semi driving skills. (Not sure exactly why it has to be dried but it does.)
