Wissmann Visit.......

This summer our family had the privilege of raising some broilers for some dear friends. When the time came to butcher their birds, we enjoyed the 'excuse' to get together!!!! We enjoyed spending last Saturday with the Wissmann Family butchering and visiting. Despite the cold, rainy weather, we got 76 birds done in about 4 1/2 hours; thanks to Scott's fantastic plucker and many helping hands.
After the butchering was over, our families enjoyed lunch and spending the afternoon together.
Thank-you for coming, Wissmanns!!! Enjoy your chickens!! :)

Baltensperger Wedding!!!

Mr. and Mrs. Allyn Weddle!!
This past Saturday our family had the immense pleasure of attending the wedding of Emily Baltensperger and Allyn Weddle!!! We have known Emily for several years, but it was just this past year that we got to know Allyn!!!
What a blessing for our family to attend two weddings this past month where the bride and groom had sought the blessings of their parents and the Lord!!
Esther was asked to be the food cordinator for the reception (and she did a terrific job!!), and various members of our family were helping serve the meal as well. Emily and Esther spent several hours laying out the many important details so that everything could go smoothly!!!
Our family so enjoyed helping in the reception, and being part of their special day!!!
A few snap-shots from the reception!!!! :)

The beautiful bride and most of the "Kitchen Girls"!!!

We enjoyed working along-side dear friends, whose hard work ensured that the reception went off without a hitch!!!

God Bless You, Allyn and Emily!!!
