Our week in a nutshell

The highlight of the Norder house was we got to spend the week with this amazing little dude!

Camryn had her 2nd week of Showstoppers practice!  Those girls are great!

While Camryn and I were gone at practice Fred took the boys up North and the went sightseeing and rode on the Ferry!  They had a blast and Fred got some pretty amazing pictures!

Can't go up there without stopping at Cabelas!

Rainy night=Root beer floats and How to Train Your Dragon!

The AMAZING sunset Tuesday night!

Keith had his football game(they won!)

Camryn started another session of gymnastics!

David has now joined in on the chipmunk clearing ;)

Fred saw these 3 eagles in a field on the way home the other day!  Aren't these majestic birds!

You forget some things about having babies ;)

Oh how I miss this little man already!!!

Camryn is 10 (second one in double digits!)

1. You are not only beautiful on the outside, you have an amazing beautiful tender heart!
2. Even though you get frustrated with me for asking, you are always willing to help out your siblings!
3. You fight about the silliest things, but the things that are important you take us at our word and go in full force!
4. You are SO smart!  I admire your brain and how it works!
5. I LOVE that you LOVE to read.  You always have your nose in a book, I was the same way growing up.  I adore that I have someone to share my love of reading.
6. You are starting to remind me more and more of myself at your age(especially your room)
7. You have a very caring soul.  You are always willing to help others, you cry at movies and books, you get so excited to help out with a surprise, and buying presents is your favorite thing!
8. I love seeing the silly girly-ness of your age coming out!
9. You are so talented in music!  I hope you strive to always do it and learn more!
10. You are and will always be a Daddy's girl, however you always know when I need some "Cami-time"

Keith's first Football Game

Keith had his first football game with the Galena program.  It was adorable to watch all of them have fun!  Even though it was flag football, there was some tackling(Come on they are boys!).  All in all he had a blast and can't wait for the next game.  They even had little cheerleaders!

Labor Day Weekend

We surprised the kids and Fred entered one of the Pape Transfer Semi's in the Labor Day parade(Monday)!  The kids got to ride in the bunk and we all tossed candy out!  It was so much fun to see all of the kids yelling and waving.  One thing we did learn is that we need about 50lbs of candy next year ;)
2 of Fred's sisters and their families stopped over for the parade and eat lunch with us.  It was such a relaxing day and so much fun!

The night before(sunday) we went to Galena to eat at Vinnie Vanuchis for our anniversary and when we got home we stopped up for a little bit to the street dance.

Saturday we went to a house warming party for a co-worker of Freds.  We decided to drive around for a bit after we left.  This place was gorgeous!  We just had to stop and take a picture!

12 years! WOW

12 years ago I married my best friend.  Sounds cheesy, I know, but seriously I don't know where I would be without Fred!  We have built an amazing life together and he is truly my best friend!
For those of you who were not at our wedding(or those who were and just want a flash back) here are some pictures from our amazing day!!

September 6, 2003
A very warm day, sunny day!

I couldn't not include a picture of these two characters!

My bridesmaids and maid of honor.

My brother Jimmy was in Iraq.  We had a bridesmaid walk down the isle by herself to symbolize where he would have been.

My two beautiful attendants!

My Mom and Dad.

Fred with the bridesmaids and flower girl.

Right before I walked down the isle.

This is a far away picture but one of my favorite pictures.  If you look closely at Fred's face, our photographer captured the look on his face the first second he saw me.

Mr. and Mrs. Norder!!!!!!

Fred's Parents

Fred with Grammy Joyce

Our two surviving Gran parents at the time.  Fred's grandma and my Nana.

I love this picture!  The only boys in their family(not including any nephews or brother in laws)

All 4 of the parents

These two were hilarious!!  They grabbed each other and went to the dance floor and had everyone cracking up!

And that is where Fred gets it from!  What a card!

Everyone in the wedding party!

I love this picture.  Fred made fun of me, but by the time we got to the reception my feet were killing me.  I am a country girl who has always gone barefoot!  So we jumped in the car and as soon as I could reach my feet(that dress was huge) my shoes came off!  I didn't wear them again the rest of the night.
