A while ago, we took all of our pictures off the computer and put them on a separate hard drive because they were taking up so much room.  So we only have a few recent pictures on the computer now, and if we want to see the other ones, we have to plug in the other hard drive.  Well, I needed a particular picture from the hard drive but had no clue which file it would be in.  So I went through all of the files on that hard drive!  And boy, we had a LOT!  Anyway, looking through all those pictures I stumbled upon these few.  And I just couldn't not put them up.  It's so fun to take a stroll down Memory Lane.

Dad and Zach looking AWESOME in their dressed-up cowboy outfits.
I think this is the most recent pic of the 6 Silverberg kids.  And this was taken last year in June.
Me, with my Missouri pastor and his wife.   I'm probably 12 or 13 here.
This is probably my favorite picture of Jason and Nicole.
I love this one of Abigail and Anna Marie.  It's so cute!
Jason.  This is one of the days he was riding bulls all day long.  Don't those chaps look so cool!
This baby camel was so adorable!  And he LOVED kisses!!!
Me and Anna.  This was at a friends' wedding.  It's supposed to be a pic of our hairstyles.
Me and Anna again.  Anna's on the left.  I love this one of us!  We were like 3 and 4 years old.
Well, not a very good facial expression.  I was actually trying not to make a face.  But everything else is kinda cool.  I'm 13 years old here.

There were a few others I thought about adding, but it would have made for a super long post.

Ok, so I've got a confession to make about this post:  these pictures are actually from last Thanksgiving.  I was going to put them on facebook to share them, but somehow it all got forgotten.  So, here is the long lost story.  Thankfully it's a short long lost story.  Last Thanksgiving we made like 3 pies and Chocolate Creme Pie just so happened to be on that list.  Well, since there were 3 pies, only a little was eaten of each one.  So after dinner I took it upon myself to put the pies away.  So I put the Chocolate Creme in the refrigerator first, then comes the Apple Pie; only they would both fit better if the Apple Pie went in before the Chocolate Creme.  *here it comes*  I grabbed the edge of the Chocolate Creme foil pie plate, began sliding it out, started to lift, realized I didn't have firmly enough in my hands and .....*slip*.....Just like that.  The pie flipped, but amazingly I caught most of it with my hand.

As I said, I salvaged most of it, but now it's more like a pudding than a pie.  It still tasted pretty good though!

This is me cleaning up the part I wasn't able to rescue.  Of course Anna had to run and get a camera before I was done cleaning up.

The whole thing was pretty funny though.  As soon as it fell I gasped, causing Anna to look over and see what I had done, resulting in a gasp of her own.

Mother's Day/Sunday Hiking

Well, yesterday was Mother's Day, and like we always do after church on Sunday, we went into the mountains.  But instead of having a bon fire and roasting our hotdogs, this time we brought along a newly bought grill just for this kind of occasion and grilled our hotdogs and hamburgers.  And in my opinion, Dad grills the best hamburgers there are to be had.

Since it was Mother's Day yesterday, I'll start off with my beautiful mother.

The 3 gals in this family quilted a table runner for her and snuck it upstairs and placed it on the table while she was in the kitchen double checking everything in the cooler.  Jason and Nicole stopped by with the flowers while we were out.  The last gift we gave to her is at the bottom of this post.'re the greatest.  I love you so much, and I want to thank you for all the encouragement that you've given me for my whole life, and I know you'll do it for as long as you can.  I just want to say that I love you and I always will. ♥♥♥

These pictures are from the hiking that we did yesterday.  I didn't take them all,  Anna did a few and so did Mom.

Anna Marie

Rachel, well, me ♫

This is Nathan up in an aspen.  And just so y'all know exactly how high we was at this moment...
Thant's him up in the tree with the rest of us down on solid ground.


And now for the last gift given to Mom for Mother's Day:
