Avery's Oktoberfest

Our middle son turned 12 yesterday and we celebrated with an Oktoberfest. It was a perfect October day! We tried various German inspired foods and had a good time with family.

Here's a photo of the unappetizer... I mean appetizer my husband made. That gelatinous stuff is herring. I was a party pooper and couldn't bring myself to even sample this dish. Thankfully, everything else was tasty!
Goulash over spatzel, bratwurst, asparagus with Hollandaise sauce.
These apple turnovers had to substitute for streudel. We also had Black Forest cake.
We got our son an amp for his guitar. I found the perfect cutting file of an acoustic guitar over at Penny Duncan Creations and made him a matching card. Check her out if you have a cutting machine and MTC or SCAL. She has spectacular files and she offers them all for free. Really awesome!

My kids have been taking pictures...

I just downloaded a bunch of pictures off of our camera and I'm impressed with the ones several of our children took. Above is a sampling from our 9 year old son.

And above are some from our 14 year old son. Aren't they superb?????

And these from our 6 year old baby girl:

We're celebrating our middle son's 12th birthday today with an Oktoberfest. It's a gorgeous fall day!
