The Adams Family

We’re kooky, but hopefully not too creepy…

Uncle Fabulous November 24, 2008

Filed under: Elyse,Family — hjhadams @ 11:52 am

We spent last weekend in Sterling, IL, visiting Grandpa & Grandma Huseth.  We helped Mimi (formerly Grandma Judi) celebrate…it was the 25th anniversary of her ordination to become a Lutheran minister.  We had a good time, but Elyse was suffering from her first cold and double ear infection.  On a good note, she finally got to meet my step-brother David, who has requested to be called Uncle Fabulous.  ; )

Slumber Party! October 24, 2008

Filed under: Elyse,Family — hjhadams @ 5:03 pm

Jim had to travel for work this week, so Elyse and I spent the night in Janesville on Wednesday.  Aunt Alyssa and “Uncle” Justin (maybe one day we can take the quotations off of uncle?) were nice enough to let us stay with them.  Elyse did great, only waking up once to eat in the middle of the night.  Since she was so well-behaved, I have a feeling we’ll be welcomed back again in the future!

Elyse’s Baptism October 22, 2008

Filed under: Elyse,Family — hjhadams @ 12:18 am

We had Elyse baptized on Sunday, October 12th.  My sister Alyssa, Jim’s sister Kym and Jim’s brother-in-law Kenneth were a special part of the day, serving as her Godparents.  Pastor Rachel, the same minister who married us two years ago, performed the ceremony.

The Elegant Farmer

We were lucky enough to have lots of family visit a little over a week ago for Elyse’s baptism.  On Saturday (October 11th) we headed to the Elegant Farmer in Mukwonago to check out the apple orchard, and of course their famous ‘apple pie baked in a paper bag’.  The weather was absolutely beautiful, and I think everyone had a great time!
