Hey Everyone:)

I am finally posting some photos from our Annual Oktoberfest that we had over the weekend. Don has more photos on his camera but I couldn't figure out how to down load the photos onto my computer. Geesh!

Our Oktoberfest is an annual  weekend event. We have it here at our home. It lasts from Saturday through Sunday. We even sleep out in tents on Saturday evening and wake up to have a yummy breakfast Sunday morning. I love sleeping out in the fresh Fall air.

Every year we invite our favorite people to join us for the last picnic of the year. Since we have many 'home brewers', we call it the Oktoberfest. This year we had about 200 guests. We have lots of delicious food and the brewers brew to enter into the contest.We give out trophies for 'best light and best dark beer' and for horseshoes too.

 Mark Lohman, the photographer, doing what he does best. So happy he and Fifi were able to attend. They were shooting for their new book. There was a lot going on this year.
                   Lisa and Suzy helped keep the bonfire going. It will be ready for smores at night.
                                          Good job ladies!
                             Fifi, the sweetest and busiest lady I know:)

 We had two pinatas for the kids this year. Manny was in charge of 'tricking' them;) Thanks for the help Manuel:)
             Fibi was here too. She and Nicole are Siamese twins. She rarely leaves Nicoles' side. lol
 The Oktoberfest is a family event. I love seeing everyone every year and how the kids have grown. They always have such a fun time. It is memories in the making. LOVE that:)
 This year the food was awesome again. We had salads, desserts, 5 deep fried turkeys, homemade french fries, pork and clams, pumpkin soup, pot pie, wings...................................................................!!!!!Everyone brings their favorite dish.
 I was happy that Carole and Lisa were able to make it. I always love it when they stop over. That is Sami, Lisa's gorgeous daughter.
                                         Sami and Maci, best buddies.
Nicole and I made all of the girls hair pieces and bought cow boy hats for the boys. They all looked adorable:)
                               OMG, is this the cutest cowboy ever????
                    Nicole brought the sun:) It was a gorgeous day.
      Thank you to all who came out and joined us:) And to those who couldn't make it, we will see you next year:) We love having you all here. Getting together with family and friends is what it's all about. You all bring such joy to us:) Thank you:)

'Till next time..............
