October Wedding!

In October, we attended a beautiful wedding for Cole and Kathryn Jost.
The wedding was in Wichita, KS at a Catholic church which was just beautiful!
The reception was also a huge hit!  There were about 500 people...biggest wedding I've ever been to!

Cole is Aaron's buddy from Hesston and they have played softball together for years.
The reception was held in a school gym, but they decorated so well that you couldn't even tell!

The live band and dancing was so much fun!

Here's our good friend Billye!

I didn't get a picture of the bride and groom, but I thought I would still document the day.  Cheers!

Baby Reveal to our Family!

Baby on Board!
Hello!  We had a fun two weeks of traveling in October to tell our families the good news!
First, we told the Billings family in Garden City!  We drove out to just "hang out" for the weekend and then had a gift wrapped for Danielle's birthday...but little did she know it wasn't a birthday gift!  We surprised her with a onesie for little Madelyn that says...

Everyone loved it and it was a wonderful time talking and celebrating together!!  The Stucky kids don't have 1st cousins yet and we are going to bring them one soon!
(Madelyn looks like a life-size doll baby in Makenah's arms! hehe)

These two just love playing with Uncle Bear :)

Aren't they all just precious!??

Next to VA for Fall Break to tell the Yoders!
(The Royals were playing in the World Series play-offs as we were flying and so Aaron was decked out in his gear and watching the game!)

We gave my parents gifts to open for my Dad's birthday...but little did they know that it wasn't a birthday gift!  We had mugs made that said, "The best moms/dads get promoted to grandpas/grandmas!"  So fun!  Again, everyone was surprised and it was fun celebrating with everyone!

Here's our little peanut on October 20, 2015.  Less than 2 cm in length.

Yes, we have already have made many trips to Target to look at baby gear!  Aaron has been the best about finding which brands are good and which styles are easy to use.

We think Casey knows the news too :)

Here's our 2nd sono on November 12, 2015.  Doubled in size...4 cm.
At this appointment we saw the baby moving all over with arms and legs!  It was the coolest thing to see!

I have also been able to break the news to my First graders!  They are so excited for me and ask me questions all the time about the baby!  They want to know if it's a girl or boy really bad!  Another said she could see my belly growing.  Cute kids.

Hope you all are having a good weekend!
Love, Maria
