The Countdown Continues!

FIVE DAYS TO GO!!!  Five months ago we began the countdown for  J and K’s Big Day (a.k.a. Jacob and Kate’s Wedding).  Until last week, the media helped us countdown by announcing the countdown to the election and then we just added eleven days!  Well, now we can say,  The wedding is this week!!!  (Do you think this mother is a little excited?!!!)

The crop was barely sprouting last spring  when we began praying for a timely fall in order for the combine to be parked before the wedding! We have been blessed with a super fall! The groom kept the combine moving, and  we were able to complete harvest a few weeks ago.  Plans are to wrap fall fieldwork up his week before the wedding.  Friday, Kevin finished baling corn stalk bales for our cattle bedding.  (We use approximately 2,000 throughout the year!)  A good job done!

Snickers is enjoying the new pillow cover that Grandma B. made.  Wedding preparations and helping Emily put up Christmas lights around the farm just wears a dog out!

Last night Kate was giving instructions to Grandma Van for a wedding preparation job!

You might say that I am just a little sentimental as the week begins!  Where does the time go?  Here is Jacob with two of his cousins.  It has been such a blessing to watch these three little boys develop into fine young men.  Shane was born March ’91; Ryan, March’92;  and Jacob, June ’92.  The latest picture of the three boys was taken a few months ago in July at Shane and Ashley’s wedding.  We have been keeping Grandma Van busy with wedding preparations this year!!
