Thanksgiving 2008

Luke and I enjoyed a great Thanksgiving this year. We had a Muncie Thanksgiving on Wednesday night at Luke's parents' house. My parents joined us, which made it a lot easier on me (rather than have to be 2 places at once)! I have always loved that my parents and Luke's parents do a lot of things (like holiday events) together. It really makes for a fun family atmosphere. 

Luke and I spent Thanksgiving day in New Albany at his grandmother's house. It is always fun to see allllll the Ernstbergers and enjoy the good food.

I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story! Christmas is coming soon.... :-)

Though they don't look that happy, I promise we had a great time at Eric & Lisa's

Lisa was teaching everyone how to make snowflakes. Mine is a Colts one!

We think Luke's turned out a little satanic

Our family just keeps getting bigger (Liz was at work)

Colts vs. Texans!

Luke and I have attended two other Colts games (both at the RCA Dome...both were losses!). We got the chance to go to the Colts vs. Texans game at the new Lucas Oil Stadium. What an immense place! We enjoyed watching a tough game that ended in a Colts victory! Finally!

Cheer, Cheer for Old Notre Dame!

For the third year in a row, my parents have generously treated Luke, my brother, and myself to a Notre Dame football game. It's really my mom and brother's "thing," but I really enjoy football as well as the campus. It is an absolutely beautiful place. I always get so jealous of the students whenever I visit. 

This past weekend had the BEST weather (compared to last year in the freezing rain), so we were able to truly enjoy it from start to finish (through all the overtimes AND a loss). We experienced a jet fly over, which literally raised the hair on my arms, and we also saw the sprinkler system go off on the field during the game! It was a memorable day, for sure!

My brother's girlfriend, Jana, came, too. Chris is trying to teach her all about football and she really seemed to enjoy it. 

I love taking pictures at Notre Dame. The beauty and majesty of the campus just never gets old, win or lose (we have yet to see them win).

I love this picture!

Halloween 2008

We spent Halloween this year at Abe & E's in their new house. We had a great time getting dressed up, and I think the boys won the award for best costumes (Batman and Joker). However, I do have to give credit to Sarah Keck for her "cholo" outfit. For those of you not "hip to slang," a cholo is a Mexican gangster. If you look close enough, Sarah definitely looks like a Mexican gangster!

I played the part of an Oscar statuette, gold leggings and body dust in all. E was Elphaba from our beloved Wicked play. Maggie was Angelina Jolie and all her babies. Abel was the Joker, Heath Ledger style. Luke was Batman (which he made the costume ALL by himself!). Sarah Ordo and Bev were the "Spirits of Halloween." It was truly a fun night in the cornfields of Greenfield!
