We just finished up a wonderful fun filled weekend with family and celebrated with a baby shower so I have a ton of things I should be posting about.  But I was catching up on some blog reading and was reading one that I go to often and she challenged everyone to take a picture of the inside of your fridge, without changing anything and post it.  I went and opened mine up after a long weekend of cooking and it scared me.  But I am being brave and showing it all, untouched.

The Good:
 - Yes there are veggies in there somewhere!
- There is a whole pumpkin pie left
- And real whipped cream!
-Leftovers for lunches
- Eggs are a staple in this house
- Jim's shelf is full of his vitamins/supplements

The Bad:
- I never can decide which dressing to use on salad
- This was cleaned out on Friday morning, with lots of room to spare.
- I need to go to the grocery store for more butter

The Ugly:
- Some things may be expired
- I found some bacon that has a funny color
- I have to go buy more butter
- I can't find the fudge topping for ice cream and I really want some

So I leave you with that.  A challenge to bear the inside of your refrigerator.  Be bold, be confident, be brave and OPEN that door!

A Family Wedding

Oh how we love weddings!  Our niece recently was married to a fine young man.  And our whole extended family was able to be there.

I didn’t do a good job with picture taking that day so this is about the best I have of the bride and groom.
Joni was the maid of honor.  Here she is with the bride.
This picture shows her cute baby belly and her husband Bob.(Grandbaby #6!)
A picture of all four of our daughters.  Very seldom do they do a picture out of birth order, this is one of them.

My three fantastic sister-in-laws and my mother-in-law.  These girls can really dance the night away and they did, we all did.  Danced until we couldn’t dance any more.

And then this happened.  A hula hoop contest.  This girl can really hula!
And with the assistance of her husband, she won the contest!
Congratulations Samantha & Dylan!  We had a great time.
