We weren't expecting to see Courtney until Christmas time!
But her job brought her to New Mexico, so she worked it out to come home for
several days ahead of time.
It was quick, but very sweet.
AND, the most amazing thing is that we got everyone together for dinner
one evening and managed to get some family pictures taken.
With eight family members and one grandchild, it was not an easy task!
I think they turned out GREAT!
Rachel and Elenna, who is now TWO!
Love these two daughters of ours so very much!
Rachel, 24 and Courtney, 26
Now for these two rascals who consume my days!!!!
Joshua, 9 and Isaac, 10
Of course I didn't even notice they had on their chore boots until the sun was down
and we were all looking at the pictures!
Now for all four of the Krause men!
Jonathan, 22 and David, 18
This is what these four looked like just seconds before the
above picture was taken...........
Who would have thought when we got married 28 years ago that we end up
with this brood? It's been quite a run......and it's not over yet!
Thank goodness we have each other, both for the good times and the not-so-good!
