This coming as a surprise to no one as Rosie and Jared got married this past weekend, but I wanted to post these pictures before the wedding ones.  :)  Stay tuned for those!

Pre-Thanksgiving Day Cider

A tradition that spans many years in the Yoder family is the making of apple cider.  Each year, we get a ton of apples from an orchard, bring them to a apple cider factory, have it go through the cider process, and then bottle it.

I’ve been gaining more appreciation for family traditions these past few years.  The making of apple cider is a neat fun thing to watch, brings a lot of the cousins together, and has become a thanksgiving day staple.  Delicious.

All the apples.

Taste testing is always important.  :)

Happy thanksgiving!

Orange and Blue

Boder!  :P

What what! :-) So this past Monday was super exciting for me. I’m really excited about all the opportunities that being beau’d will bring. I’m just hoping that I’ll be able to spread Christ’s love through this and encourage these awesome girls.

Since I’m having trouble explaining this situation to (fictional audience?) people not in Harding and people in Harding, I’m just going to stop here. :-P

Hear my prayer and answer,
I am poor and needy.
Guard my life for I am devoted to you.
Hear my prayer, O Lord, and
my cry for mercy, in this day of
trouble I will call to you.
Psalm 86
