Look at the Sandman Family

This past Thanksgiving, Grammie wanted a photo of all her grandkids. So, we tried to get everyone to hold still and smile, but the sun was toooooo bright and everyone was tired from a long holiday weekend of playing and catching ailments. So, here is what was captured during 15
minutes of photo time. We love those Huskers!!!! Go BIG RED!!!

Bronco Cheer Camp 2009

Each year the WP cheerleaders host a day cheer camp for the elementary girls to learn cheers and a routine that they will perform at half-time of a basketball game. This year the girls got a set of poms and new t-shirts. It was so fun to watch the girls perform and show a little attitude during half-time.

Alexa's 6th Birthday

My baby is growing up!!! Alexa turned 6 on December 3rd and we enjoyed lots of cake!!! She is the biggest cake eater and loves Pooh. Alexa enjoyed having a friends party and a family party. Lots of gifts too. She can never get enough partying!!!!!!

Huge Snow Storm of 2009 (not the only)

I took a few moments before I scooped the walks to capture these photos of the major snow storm that hit before Halloween and delayed everything for a couple of days. The huge drift in the back was the hardest and heaviest to scoop. My pumpkins were not excited about the wintery weather. Not to mention that the farmers needed to harvest their corn. One of many setbacks this past year related to the weather.

Halloween 2009

Is it Hannah Montana or Haylee? Is it a pink ballerina or Alexa? And who is the rooster??? We also found a chicken and a camo girl.... We had such fun at Halloween. Haylee is a bit obsessed with Hannah, and Alexa was determined to be a ballerina. So what should a mom do, but find the appropriate costumes. Noah doesn't care what he is, but I have this costume from Haylee's earlier days. Every year the elementary teachers host a Halloween Party/Costume Parade at the school for everyone to attend. As you can see, Noah wanted to be in the action too. The chicken is McKenna Doetker; after her mom and talked about the costumes, we knew we had to get them together for a photo shoot. So, cute, we hope it doesn't spill over to junior high love!!! And the camo girl is my niece Madison who would never miss time to hang out with cousins and "Trick or Treat" for all the goodies.

Halloween Pumpkin Patches 2009

Here are a few random photos taken from Cox Pumpkin Patch and the Wright Pumpkin Patch too. The cousins always have fun together and we are never at a loss for humor. There is a neat photo of the Cox car that made an appearance at the patch "Uncle" something they named it; very humorous to watch and quite creative too.

Haylee Turns 7

It is hard to believe that Haylee Elizabeth turned 7 on October 15th. She enjoyed lots of fun with friends and family. We were blessed to have lots of cake to eat and laughs to share. I was brave and hosted a friend party full of 1st graders and a craft even. I have no idea if the Halloween bracelets made it past that party day. But they were lots of fun to create and string.
