Happy 165th Birthday to My Home State!

Today, in 1848, Wisconsin became the thirtieth state! Happy Birthday, Wisconsin!

And I have to post our anthem, On Wisconsin. Sorry, I couldn't find one with the lyrics, so here they are.

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!

Grand old Badger State!

We, thy loyal sons and daughters,
Hail thee, good and great.
On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Champion of the right,
"Forward", our motto,
God will give thee might!

And for advertising purposes [wink], here's a short film by the Leclerc Brothers on Sheboygan County in northern Wisconsin (warning: the footage is so pretty you might just want to move there [grin]):

Happy Birthday to my Dad!

Dad and I recently, and now, let's hit rewind...
Dad at about 2 I would guess... isn't he cute?!
Fast-forward to the wedding!

You are such an incredible husband, father, counselor, teacher and pastor. I love you so much, and hope you have a very happy birthday!

To the woman whose husband and children rise up and call her blessed, who is such a sweet counselor, homemaker, and blessing to so many.... Happy Mother's Day.

To my sweet, lovely, precious Grandmothers, who are a wonderful example to me, Happy Mother's Day.

To all my friends who are mothers, Happy Mother's Day.

Just as a warning, there is a brief shot of a dead body... but it is only on the screen for a second or two.

Melvin & Nathalie - Engagement

Last week, I had my very first official photo shoot! Our pastor's daughter got engaged... and she wanted me to take the engagement photos. Every shoot I have been to I was following the photographer around... this time, I was the main photographer. The prospect was pretty scary at first, but my sweet friend Allie Dean came over and was my amazing supportgroup-secondshooter-friend. :) Melvin & Nathalie were excellent models and were so fun to be around! Here are a couple of photos!
