Weekend Recap

Since dad has been gone the last couple weekends it was nice to have everyone home and hang out. Saturday we had some people over to watch the K-state vs. Louisville game. We had a good time with everyone even though K-state lost. My friend Morgan was the life of the party, she sang the Fight Song and does the K-S-U Wildcats.

We had our new neighbor, Delilah, over for the weekend. Mom and dad forgot how hard it was having a puppy around. Even though they are so cute, it is a lot of work when they are not potty trained. Delilah did very well though and we had fun playing all weekend.

Sunday was mom's 26th birthday. Dad did a great job making the day special with breakfast in bed and gifts creatively hid in the house for her to find at different times. He even made a yummy cake for everyone to eat at their couples bible study. I was hoping to get a piece but all I got were some crumbs. Mom also had a softball game on Sunday and they won! It was the last game of the fall season. I guess now they want to start a winter season so the playing never stops!

Miranda, Kathryn, Taylor, Courtney
Mom is an AWANA leader at their church for T&T girls (3rd - 6th grade). Every Wednesday she goes to church and listens to their verses, plays games, and encourages the girls. She had really enjoyed getting to know them and develop relationships with them. AWANA stands for Approved Workers are Not Ashamed and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15. They also have a sleepover every year in the spring that the girls are already talking about. It is a contest to see how late they can stay up.
Miranda's coming to AWANA last year is a cool story. She would go over to Courtney's house after school and one day her mom couldn't pick her up in time so she had to come AWANA. Her mom came to pick her up in the middle of it but she wanted to stay until the end. Miranda enjoyed it so much that she has come back ever since and this year she even goes to a different school but is still coming. I think AWANA is the only place she has heard the gospel and it is so encouraging to see her memorizing the word and praying! There are about 25 girls in the program. Mom is leader of the red team which averages 4-6 girls.

Change of Plans

Tonight was supposed to be a night of friendly rivalry between dad's Cowboys and mom's Redskins. The game is on but dad got stuck out on his trip so it is just mom and me. It's not looking good for the 'skins but she is still working on corrupting me.

Memory Lane

Here's me the day mom and dad picked me out. No recent pictures to post as nothing new has been going on lately. Dad was gone on a "business trip" last weekend and he will be gone this weekend as well so it is just me and mom hanging out. One of my legs was really hurting last weekend and mom didn't want me moving around a lot so we watched a lot of football. I have a feeling it will be the same this weekend. K-State is on TV so that will fun to watch!

Three Games and a Wedding

Mom and dad had a wonderful weekend in Kansas. They arrived Friday afternoon and stayed until Monday afternoon. Friday night they watched the Royals beat the White Sox. Saturday they headed up to Manhattan to watch the K-State Volleyball game and their favorite player Tiffany Johnson. We found out that today that Tiffany was named to the Varney’s Kansas State Invitational All-Tournament team! Saturday night they went to the K-State vs. Illinois State football game. The game was way too close but we will take a win and hope for improvement as the season goes on. Most people know I was named after the K-State Football field. Well just because they changed the name of the stadium doesn't mean my parents have to change my name. I believe it is still Wagner Field at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
And the reason they went up to KC, the wedding of dad's friend Jamie from college. The wedding was at a beautiful glass and wood chapel in Powell Gardens. The bride was beautiful, the reception was fun and it was a joy to celebrate with them!

The chapel is located back by the tree line and overlooks the lake and gardens.

Dad and mom enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of dad's friend (and his wife) from college. The also got to meet their adorable 5 month old daughter! They enjoyed spending time with them - just wished it was longer!
