Last blog post January 2014.  Hmmmmm. That's interesting.  A few things have happened since that time.  Two being a wedding and pregnancy.  Oldest got married..... but she is not the one pregnant.  Her time will come.  It is interesting have the oldest moved out and a new one to come in.
Life is always on the move, God has given us ao much grace on this journey of life we are on.  Over the past 22 months there have been a multitude of ups and downs, and God has been very gracious through them. We don't always handle them as good as we should, but we will continue to do what we do with as much heart as anyone.
I am trying to post this from my phone to see if it would cause me to post occasionally.  It is at least a try  :)
Here are a couple of random pictures I have on my phone.

A Special Christmas Present...

This year is extra exciting for the Dittmers because we have a special present from our parents this year...

It is true mom is pregnant!!

Our excitement is beyond words! 

Yes, we do realize we took the Bible verse out of context but I'm sure all of you will forgive us. :) We hope you all will share in our excitement as baby number 9 is on the way!

Birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Visits... Oh my!

It has been such a long time since we've posted! Since you've last heard from us we've had 2 birthdays... Olivia turned 5, and Mother turned... Well she'd rather not talk about it. Happy very belated birthday to both of you!

Thanksgiving was such a wonderful time of...
- Cooking
- Family Time
- Eating
- Cooking
- Games
- Eating
- Playing
- Resting
- Good Conversations
- And Lots More Eating!
We all enjoyed the day with our Aunt Lisa, Uncle Sam, and our 2 cousins Eric and Luke!
Our meal consisted of mashed potatoes, gravy, asparagus, corn, relish tray, cranberry scones, beets, stuffing, ham, and turkey. And our dessert consisted of cheesecake, apple salad  pumpkin spice pie, rice crispy treats, red velvet cupcakes, a pecan pudding pie and french silk pie!!! YUM!!

The Witzenburg family also visited us on Sunday last week! We all had a lovely time! It was such a fun visit and we can't wait to see them again soon!

We all enjoyed playing the table slapping game :)

We went shooting on Saturday! Dad took Emily, Caleb, Anna, and me; while mom stayed home with all the young ones. I shot 50 times with the shot gun and my arm is so sore it's ridiculous!

Here are some pics of our fun day! :)
