One more thing....

I just made a page that is connected to our main blog- it is for Wedding Memories- I have put some photographs and even a few videos on this page. I will put a link in this post- but if you want to look at it again later there is a link on the right side of this blog.

4-0, Fire pit, and a "Dead Dog"

We have had quite a crazy few days here in the Burman household! Please try and keep up as I guide you through the highs and lows of our weekend!

Mississinewa is still undefeated! This past game against Frankton was a shut out! I am so proud of Ben, it seems to me that he may actually be the lucky charm, because Mississinewa went 2-9 last season! I have added a few photo's from that game and the article from the paper on Saturday. Note: Ben is actually mentioned in the article!

Getting ready for kick off.

Head Coach Funk getting into the game.

Fire pit
Well after much debate and convincing (from Ben) we built our own patio and fire pit! I must say after working hard on something for so long I am very proud of the outcome and my handy husband. I made a video of all the steps we did in the backyard- what you don't see are the THREE trips to Lowe's and all the measuring. You will also notice I am not in many pictures, please understand if you are behind the camera you can't be in shot BUT that I did actually help build, not just take pictures :)

Dead Dog
Monday night after a long day at school, I came home to a very hyper dog. I decided that I would take Grissom outside and play catch. I opened the glass sliding door and as I began to open the screen door our DUMB dog ran his 95+ pure muscle body into the frame and screen. The screen and frame were bent and couldn't actually be moved- so I forced the door a bit more open and sent Grissom outside to wait until his father got home. I was so mad. NOT as mad as Ben was though. Upon realizing the screen was beyond repair Ben ripped the screen door off the frame and threw it across the yard. (I call this "pulling a Stephen Burman") I guess he had an even longer day at school than I did. Grissom spent some more time in the yard and then slept in the guest room. RIP screen door.

Fall = Baking and Crafts

This is a QUICK post to show off some of my new house decorations and baking creations. First the baking- nothing screams fall weather in Indiana better than a house that smells like cookies. I already have all my fall decorations out and pumpkin/apple pie candles ready. I took a little time this past week (and had Ben help me!) and made some more cake pops!- this time they were "Fun-fete" and the tasted as good as they looked. Ben is really in love with these and is already trying to get me to make different kinds and sell them at our local Farmers Market- always looking to make a buck.

I also have finished the entry way!- Please note: the old people in the frames will not be staying. We ordered wedding pictures of family to go in the frames- they just haven't arrived yet. (This is in no way a slam on the elderly, who are overly in love and enjoy sunflowers.)

Hope you like!- Love,

Happy Birthday Stephanie!!

Today is my little sister's birthday and I don't know how it happend but she is 23 years old! If she is that old.... that means I am REALLY old.

This sums up all our photos.

I remember so many fun things about our childhood. From singing "The Song That Never Ends" in all different forms, to creating special handshakes that only we knew, we were litearlly best friends. We were also the best fighters EVER:

"I am sorry, I love you, you weren't adopted- at least not to my knowledge, now can I please use the compter?"

I must say though- some of my favorite memories of my sister involve the two years I drove her "non-morning person" butt to school. (Now is a good time to mention- those two years were her best pertaining to attendace and being on time). I would normally wait about 10 minutes in the car- honking my horn because she had just rolled out of bed as I poured my 3rd cup of coffee. She would then stomp outside and plop in the car- with a look of pure hate. Then as we passed Woodman Lane her tone and look would change and she would polietly ask if I had any money- of course I did. So she would ask about my day and I knew something was up and then... she would ask: "Since we are running early... (by her definition- she would make it to homeroom by the first bell) we should get some Krispe Kream."

She knew exactly how to butter me up and get a chocolate milk and doughnut out of it all. And somehow she made it to school with breakfast and lunch money all from me to make it through her Freshman and Sophmore years of high school- not sure how she survied the two year after I graduated but I heard they were full of tardies and a hungry Steph.

I want to take a minute and say: Happy Birthday Stephanie- you are so beautiful and funny- NEVER change, unless it is out of my clothes and into your own.
