We went to Koln, Germany and visited the Dom Cathedral. It was one of the most beautiful man made structures I have ever seen! It was massive and absolutely unbelievable!

We bought a house a few weeks back. Directly below is a picture from the street. As you can see, it is in a cul-de-sac and there's plenty of room for the kids to play on a safe street.
Unfortunately, we are having difficulties with the people who are currently renting the house. We hope to move in as soon as possible (hopefully November). We are VERY ready to have a home again.

Luke turned 1! We had a fun party for him at Incredible Pizza in Tulsa. We had a great time seeing all of our friends that we don't get to see a lot. Thanks to everyone for making it a special day!
He loved the chocolate cake!

He enjoyed the cake so much, he got some in his eyes, which he did NOT like at all!

We went and visited our good friend, Bruce Willett in Stuttgart, which isn't too far down the road in Germany. While we were there, we went to Volksfest, which is Stuttgart's version of Oktoberfest. It was really neat to see- LOTS of beer, brats, and lederhosen!
Elijah and Luke's first ferris wheel ride in Stuttgart. It was the largest transportable ferris wheel in the world (and it cost $25!)

This is our buddy, Bruce
Nice pair or beers you got there.
We loved Legoland!
Elijah and Jeremy on the airplane ride
Mommy and Lukey on the train- he really did like it
We went to the Pumpkin Festival in Hitscherhof, not too far away. It was really neat. They had lots of vendors, wine, pumkin goodies, and of course, pumpkins!
They had a really cool maze in the corn!
They say everything is bigger in Texas, but I've never seen any pumpkins this big in the Lone Star State!

Elijah had his 3rd Birthday on September 4th. We had a birthday party for him at a nearby park. He had lots of friends there and had a great time.
Some of his friends, Lexi, Noah, and Gabriel
Birthday kiss for the big man
Luke cheesin' it
He was very excited to see that he had a Thomas the Train birthday cake.
Daddy and Lukey- the pretzels were a big hit
Mommy and Luke
We celebrated at a local Mexican restaurant for his actual birthday
He liked the fried ice cream.
I can not believe three years has already flown by. He is the most amazing boy I could ever imagine. I would not change one thing about him. I thank God every day for him. He is an amazing blessing from a wonderful God! Happy Birthday, sweet Elijah Lincoln!
