Camping with the church – October 2009

Last weekend (October 9-11, 2009), we went camping with the church. This is our sixth time camping together as a church in the last 3 years. Here are some pictures.

Dinner with the boys

Jared, Jason, Matthew, and Ryan (four of our friends who share an apartment) invited us to their apartment for dinner. Matthew cooked pork, brunswick stew, and grilled corn. He also made some homemade bbq sauce (and bought some Sticky Fingers Tennessee Whiskey sauce). Margaret made baked beans and potato salad. We had a great time [...]

Bonfire at the Miller’s house

We went to our friends’, the Miller’s, house last night with the Henry’s for a bonfire. We cooked our food in aluminum foil on the fire. After dinner, we roasted marshmallowes and made smores. (Or, to use it as a verb, we smored.) There is a picture of Jeremy without his braces in this album! [...]

20th Anniversary

Today is our 20th wedding anniversary! Unfortunately, we’re spending it apart because Margaret is helping take care of her dad in Alabama while he’s recovering from bypass surgery. This afternoon, our friend Denise surprised me with a fruit basket that she made. (I think Margaret had something to do with this.) And, yes, I said [...]

WaFoCoCo with David Rogers

We had hamburger steaks with onions, broccoli, and sweet potatoes. After dinner, and after talking for a while, we decided to [...]

Family Pictures

Last November, our friend Melissa (from tesorophotography) took pictures of our family. We think the pictures turned out great! Thank you, Melissa! If you are in the Raleigh area, you should definitely get Melissa to do your family photos! Here are some of the pictures: BubbleShare: Share photos

Dinner with Friends – 12/19/2008

On our trip from Youngsville, NC to Alexander City, AL (about a 12-hour trip including stops), we stopped in Braselton, GA to have dinner with some good friends: Lew and Kati, and Brandon and Heather and their girls. We’ve known Lew and Kati for a few years. I (Alan) worked with Lew until they moved [...]

Wake Forest Christmas Parade

Last Saturday, we were in the Wake Forest, NC Christmas Parade on the Franklin County Humane Society float. Jeremy wore a dog costume and did a great job waving to the crowd. The kids really loved him. Jeremy, Margaret, and I rode in the back of the truck that pulled the float. Miranda rode on [...]
