Big Changes!!!

It is hard to believe it is time yet again for another Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for this year. We have two new wonderful additions to our family, a grandson (Gabriel) and a daughter-in law (Ashley). Our family continues to grow and change.

Speaking of changes, this Thanksgiving, Riley and I will experience a huge change...for the first time in years we will not be having Thanksgiving with our children. They and their families will be going to other family we are back to how it was in the beginning before we had any children. It seems so odd...Definitely "empty nest". We do plan to hop over the mountains and see Riley's sisters and mom so some of the emptiness will be less.

So here is to change...may we gracefully move through each season in our lives.....

Catching Up....

Ok, so it has been quite a while since I have long in fact we have added not only a new grandson to our family, but also a new daughter-in-law. It has been a busy time in our family.

Gabriel Weldon Yerxa was born on June 12th and is the delight of not only his parent's Kyle and Carolyn, but of all of our family. He is now almost 5 months old...and is smiling and cooing constantly.

Brian has been blessed with the love of his life, Ashley, and they were engaged in June. They married October 8th in her hometown of Archbold, Ohio. It was a wonderful and special wedding. We all flew out to attend the wedding and were so delighted to meet Ashley's family. We also had a second reception for them at the end of October here in Auburn for those who could not attend the wedding in Ohio.

Abram is now 19 months old and is running, not walking everywhere. And of course speaking his own special baby dialect of which he expects us to completly understand.

So that is some of what has been going on in the Yerxa household these past 8 months since the last post. I will try to get more pictures up in future posts.
