Christmas Eve Portraits from Florida

We couldn't seem to get our act together for a group portrait so here are some singular ones.  Merry Christmas, everyone!

Dopey Challenge Training Upate

Adam here with a Dopey Challenge update. It's less than a month from the race and I'm still pretty much on schedule with training. Unfortunately the rigorous schedule took it's toll me; I got a sinus infection and a case of shingles (something that comes from having chicken pox as a child: The sinus infection was actually gone in a couple days, but shingles sticks around a little longer. It has been a relatively mild case, if that is possible. But still very irritating. I have still been able to run in the meantime, albeit slower, shorter distances and not as often. The illness is on its way out but has been a challenge in itself. I highly suggest avoiding it if you can. Enough about ME, this is for Team JDRF, Carson, Mandy, Kerry, my coworker's son Palin and everyone else who lives with Type 1 Diabetes. Please remember this is for a great cause, the research for a cure for Type 1 Diabetes and for improving the lives for those w…

Spider Cupcakes

Landon cooks with his mom...carrot cupcakes with spider legs and beady eyes :)

One spider has eyes all around (right front).

Grandpa Lyle

UPDATE from Adam: "So the visitation was pleasant last night, lots of visitors, beautiful night. Today was kind of gray, but much was said about what a great family man he was. It was a pleasant funeral."

Kim's Grandpa Lyle left the earth this week.  No doubt, he's dancing with his beloved Kate in heaven. His celebration service will be held in Guthrie Center Friday morning.

Blake and His Buds


It Was a Black-Tie Affair

So many September birthdays at the Underwood house that we decided to invade their home with one-birthday-party-fits-all-three.
I cooked up a crock-pot lunch and Kimberly made the black-and-white cake~~you know the kind~~
with Oreos on top :)
Everyone came in black and white. I managed to get a few portraits but didn't get everyone covered,
missing Kim and a selfie~~we'll live with it.
 Hunter's 13 this September.  Landon and Blake, pre-party...they're big gamers. Blake is 12 this September.  Amy's one year older... ...and Dave got that way in August.  Adam's a little older too...  ...but Grandpa Al has always been old.
Yep. We did it in black and white :)  The Oreo cake. Blake now has his desired Oakley sunglasses... in good company with Uncle Adam.

Landon led the happy birthday song with everyone following along :)

Cousin Kyle Got Married

Majestic Oak Golf Club in Ham Lake was the venue Kyle and Missy chose for their nuptials...a ceremony outside in front of a gazebo, the reception inside the Fireside Room at the clubhouse. Ham Lake is just a couple miles north of Ron and Linda's home in Blaine so they hosted us overnight before and after the simple and convenient.
 Cousin Kyle waiting for the wedding party to turn up. He's a cool, confident extremely nice dude working in marketing.  Missy (Melissa) and her dad arriving.  Missy is a nanny about to open a daycare in their new home.
Kyle's parents, Aunt Cindy and Uncle KK Larson
The Jerdee siblings...Cindy, Kathy, Jon, Allen  Aunt Kathy, Uncles Jeff and Jon, Aunt Mavis  Al and Becky, Cindy...KK was outside chatting it up with people leaving the party, unavailable for this picture next to his wife, Cindy. Kyle dancing with his mom at the end of the evening. Lovely party.
