A Brief Intermission and Now It's Back

I know it seemed as though we forgot about our blog and that it was a thought of the pass, but we simply were having an intermission and now we are back! As everyone, we have had a very busy December. Here are a few of the highlights thus far:

Anna Kate O'Dell Arrives
My dear friends Candice & Jeremy welcomed their daughter Anna Katherine on November 29. I was able to make it to Bowling Green, KY, a day after her grand entrance. She is so precious! Here are a few of my favorite pics from the day.I look forward to seeing her grow into a darling little girl. I'm sure she will be a familiar face on our blog as our families share many memories in the future.

A Visit With Uncle Drew
So maybe he is not a biological uncle, but we are sure that Wilhelm will come to call Alan's college friend, Drew, Uncle. We were able to make a trip to Cincinnati the week after Thanksgiving to visit with Alan's parents and our friend Drew. Drew is an attorney and lives in Dayton, OH. Though our visit was short Wilhelm and Drew found time to share a few laughs.
It was wonderful to see Drew and it is nice that we now live closer to one another.

Our First Trip Back to Geneva (and some Christmas shopping)
We'll we have no pictures to prove our visit, but we just returned from a long weekend in Geneva, IL. It was our first visit to Geneva since we moved in August. The weather was extremely cold and there was lots of snow, but that didn't stop us from spending some quality time with friends and shopping the streets. We had a grand visit that simply went to fast.

That brings us up to the current moment, we are trying to get ready for Christmas and in less than a month we'll be celebrating Wilhelm's first birthday. Stay tuned for an exciting time in our eargle family's adventures.
