Farewell to our Pastor, Sarah and Kerena

Our pastor Luther was called to Springfield, MN and we attended his farewell party for him, his wife Sarah and their daughter Kerena.

Addison's first Halloween

Addison enjoyed her first Halloween by going trick-or-treating. She didn't quite enjoy her peapod costume because she is getting quite long and her poor toes were getting curled. Nonetheless, she had a great time.

Halloween 2008

Jen and I went as Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth. We went with a group of friends and hit the contests - we won 1st place at the Eagles Club. Along the way, we collected some bail jumpers.

However, not everything is easy for Dog and getting his bounties.

Hobie & Maya say bye to Sheeba

Our neighbor from the apartment next door and her dog Sheeba moved to the cities last week. Sheeba, a husky/rotweiler mix, liked coming over and laying near the kennel to keep our dogs company or to keep them barking at night. The pix are from Sheeba's last day in Morris. Bye Sheeba!

Hobie says 'bye!' :-[

Maya says 'Hey, take me with you!!!'

Jen and Addison heading to work ... and daycare

You can guess which one is going where. Jen and Addison were all smiles this morning.

Addison photo update!

Addison has been busy growing. She is now four-and-a-half months old about now, and she enjoys hanging out with us, on the floor watching things and smiling. She is now beginning to eat solid food. Mom won't let Dad feed her a steak anytime soon.

Eisenbacher tribe visits Addison

Mike's college friends Harold and Janelle Eisenbacher visited Addison a few weeks back and dad forgot to post it! Here Harold and Janelle's children meet and hold Addison. We're looking forward seeing them in February for the annual Cihak Super Bowl Party.

No one puts Baby in a corner...

... but that doesn't relate to cats. It's sad when you can't put Addison in the bassinet because it is occupied by two large furry things...

Watching the Morris Tigers at Big Cat Stadium!

We brought Addison to Big Cat Stadium to celebrate Homecoming as the Morris Tigers played the Montevideo Thunderhawks. Jen found a great tiger costume for Addison and she was a big hit. The Tigers lost, but it was a great night for football.

Arriving at the Big Cat Stadium - probably the best football stadium in out state Minnesota - Addison and Jen wearing their tiger colors.

In the stands cheering on the Tigers.

Addison was always looking at her feet and her tiger toes.

Addison is a Vikings fan!

No better way to teach a child the meaning of the word 'disappointment' than making her watch the Minnesota Vikings...

EPA Golf Tournament

Bob and I played in the 2008 EPA Golf Tournament held at Rush Creek in the Cities in August. We didn't bring home the hardware, but we enjoyed the beautiful weather on a great course.

Addison grows!

Something isn't quite right...

I got this small flag during the Prairie Pioneer Days parade in Morris last week. Something not right about this.

Randy is one unhappy American.

Golfing the Bois de Sioux

On Friday, July 18th, Bob and I met at the Bois de Sioux Golf Club in Wahpeton, ND for a round of golf. We kept on talking about getting out and playing a round of golf, so we set the 18th for the date. We had originally planned on golfing Pebble Lake Golf Club in Fergus Falls - since the distance is about even between Moorhead and Morris. Unfortunately, Pebble Lake was hosting a tournament that particular day, so we made a tee time at Bois de Sioux, which is also about halfway for each of us. The course was pretty good shape, with the exception of two holes are still unplayable due to the annual flooding they receive each year. Otherwise, it was a nice alternative to our plans.

The weather was great - you couldn't ask for a better day - 83 degrees, no wind, and more importantly, no bugs. We got our golf games ready for the EPA Golf Tournament at Rush Creek in August.

After our round, we headed to the Wilkin in Breckenridge for a great meal. I highly recommend this place if you find yourself in the area.

Bois de Sioux has very lush fairways with well timed rains.
