Thanksgiving was a great day for Ella because she got some bites of her first solid food... POTATOES! She was very confused by it, didn't like it, tried to throw it up, and smiled the whole time while eating it. She has since eaten some sweet potatoes too. She had the same kind of feelings toward sweet potatoes as regular potatoes, but is starting to enjoy it. It has been fun watching her reactions towards new things, but the second time she has eaten it she has loved it. It will be interesting to watch her try more new foods.

Gobble, Gobble... Happy Thanksgiving!

For the last two years Ernie, Mylie, and I have traveled to New Castle to visit with Ernie's family for the long Thanksgiving holiday. This year was no different (minus Mylie staying back because it was too cold) It has become a welcomed tradition for our family with lots of relaxation, fun memories, and LOTS of good food. This year we were able to share it with Ella. We introduced her to the horses, played with Uncle Erik, and laughed with Grandma and Grandpa. We look forward to many more holidays together. Thank you to my in-laws for opening their home and making us feel welcome. We are VERY thankful for all of you. We LOVE the Ranch and all that it brings.

We did some shooting this year too... SO much fun! Amanda was scared, Erik was scary, and Ernie did well and I beat the pants off Ernie! Let's just say I have a knack for shooting. I fit right into the Krauth family.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Krauths!

Loving life right now. There are just so many things to be thankful for. My daughter, my wife, my job, my family, my friends, my God, and life. Just thought I would share my thoughts.

October and a little more...

The month of October flew by in our family. There were many challenging things that happened in this month. However, God has continued to show us His grace and faithfulness despite everything. Although some of those challenges will not go away anytime soon, we have learned a lot and Ernie and I have learned to rely on one another and stick together despite everything. When you feel like the world is against you, it is so nice to have a partner in crime to fight the world with you!

Ernie, I love you and I am so proud of how hard working, obedient, and faithful you are to God and to me. Your hard work and perseverance have shown me that we can fight anything together. The odds are never against us because we have each other and God to rely on. Thank you for helping me realize that God is in control and that he has a plan that far exceeds my expectations. Thank you for letting me cry when I needed too and be angry when I needed too. Thank you for being a GREAT stay at home daddy for Ella Jean! You can see in her eyes that she feels the same way about you that I do.

Despite the hard times, we also had some fun times too... ENJOY!




We're excited October is over and we are looking forward to the rest of November and celebrating Christmas! Ella Jean is VERY excited to go visit Grandpa and Grandma Krauth and Uncle Erik for Thanksgiving and of course celebrating Jesus birth in December!
