Grandma, Potluck and Evan

Grandma came down to see us for a couple days. We always love it when she visits! :) She helped me get things ready for MOPS (I had to make centerpieces for each table-thank you!) and we just had a great time together as always. Love you Mom!Out to McDonalds for lunch while we were running errands. Evan is eating more and more table food... I gave him some bun and he devoured it!
Of course we watched the Penn State game. They kept talking about the Rotel Velveeta cheese dip during the game and my mom got really hungry for it and luckily I had the stuff to make it!


Grandma taught Evan to sit up while she was here.
We have gotten so many new neighbors lately so we organized a potluck last weekend. We had a great turnout and it was fun to get to know everybody better.

It was really simple, everyone brought a dish to share.

The kids had a great time playing.
And everyone loved Evan!
Evan's photo shoot. What a cute chub! :)




Please pray for the little guy. This week, I had to take him the doctor for his second set of double ear infections... and he's ruptured his right eardrum both times. We have an appointment already to see the Pediatric ENT. I had the same problems as a baby because of a too short eustachian tube and we think he might have the same thing. Fortunately, he's such a good baby that he's dealing with it all really well but he's not eating and sleeping as well and had a high fever this week. He fell asleep playing one day which he hasn't done in months. Poor guy.

I just got caught up on your many pictures on your blog. You guys look like you are having a blast in PA. We just arrived to Germany last week and still trying to unpack our household goods and trying to find missing pieces to things. We are enjoying Mannheim, it is very different from Bamberg, but we are glad to be in Germany again. I am really eager to go meet some people. I am still trying to figure out how I am going to do PC. I have to get 150 in by the end of this month or I'll be inactive. I still haven't got the approval yet and I have heard it takes 3 months to get a approval. Who knows! Hope all is going great for you all. I hope Evan starts feeling better. I had ear troubles growing up.....it wasn't fun. Luckily mine haven't had any problems. Take care!
