With our dear friend, Betty Miller, the co-founder of Life Ministries.
carrying on tradition-breakfast at Der Dutchman w/ moms Uncle Amos & Aunt Hannah.
(it was quite a morning-people who were either
a) related to us
b) from Iowa
c) knew us from our singing
kept stopping by to chat. It was an extremely social breakfast. =)
Florida tropics!
even though it was COLD while we were there...it was still beautiful!


  1. awww...so nice to see you all again! Come home soon!!!(=

  2. Great violin practicing pics. Sometimes my violin practice has to be creative. When visitors are over, I head to the woods or basement. Skirt hangers make excellent music stands in a pinch!

  3. Allison, how do you get your hair up like it is in the picture of you helping one of the boys practice? Does your hair have a lot of body? My hair is very thin, and has almost no body, but a little below my waist. Any tips for getting my hair to stay up? (Or any other hair do's similar to that!) When I leave my hair down, it gets extremely tangled, and pulled and in my way, so I'm looking for ways to do my hair up, that's not sloppy.

  4. Hello to all of the Bontrager's,
    Awwww..spending time w fam is so good!
    In Christ,
