Big News!

Big News for the Krekelbergs!
We are Moving up to Ely, MN! Mark was offered a job as President of a Credit Union up there. We will be praying our home sells quickly, and he starts around the first of the year. If our home doesn't sell right away, I will stay back with the kids and do daycare, until it does sell!
So, if you want to buy our house! We will give you a great deal :)
Be praying for this transition for our family...we can definitely still keep in touch via blog/facebook... (plus Ely is only 3 1/2 hours from the cities)
Just wanted you all to know...and celebrate with us!

Alli's firsts...

Hello...this week we introduced rice/oatmeal cereal to Alli...she did really good! She was definitely ready for it. I am giving it to her 2 times a day. She hasn't quite rolled over yet, but she is minutes away from doing soooo...
I attended Mr. Tom Gardner's funeral yesterday, it was so inspirational? Can I say that? It was so motivating, to see such faithfulness in a person...You could compare him to Paul. He was so selfless and was so concerned for souls. I pray that I can be more Christ like in that sense. I think the best "line" at the funeral was from his son Miss. Dan Gardner, he said "My dad is probably looking down from heaven, feeling sorry for us, b/c we are down here and not up there with him/Jesus!"...WOW!!! I think that puts lifes problems and situations in perspective! Praise God for all the years that he let us get to know Tom Gardner.
I'm feeling quite exhausted from this past week...emotionally, spiritually and physically! Pray for me and our family.
Anyways...on a lighter note. We are going to spend the weekend with my grandma and sister. Just hanging out and enjoying each others company. I hope Mark get's his deer this weekend. He has spotted a big buck, but it's been too far away to shoot.
We planned a mini vacation for next Wednesday-Thursday so we will be heading up to Beautiful Ely, MN again!!!
I will have to post the photo of the kids. I am just too lazy to run upstairs and download the pictures, ever been there?
Anyways. Have a good Godly weekend.

What a weekend!

The kids and I had a fun weekend at my grandma's in St Louis Park. We stayed over night Friday-Sunday.
Friday night was a girls night with the girlfriends...we ate, talked, did karoke, and drank virgin margarita's. It was a blast bonding the girls! Thanks guys...let's do it again soon!
Saturday, we took the kids to the apple orchard, where we picked 10 pounds of apples...and ate as we picked. We had lots of fun. In the evening, Melanie and I went to her missions conference at Grace church. It was really neat, they had a speaker "George Sada"...he was an advisor to Sadaam Huessin, and talked about being a christian dealing with Sadaam and how he was able to give God the glory and be the modern "daniel in nebuchadnezzer's court"... I got his book "Sadaams Secrets" talking about WMD and how much America is truly appreciated over in Iraq. It was nice to hear!
Today we went to church and out to lunch with my grandma.
I started drinking coffee! (I feel like a grown up now) Rebekah works at Caribou, so she is encouraging me to drink different kinds.
Mark went hunting and didn't see a deer...he had a relaxing weekend.
Oh, on a sad note. Today we found out Mr. Tom Gardner passed away! He was a true warrior of the faith and loved the Lord. He is up in heaven now, with NO PAIN, which is huge b/c he suffered quite a bit. Horner/Gardner/Peterson family's...know you are in our prayers!

Is Busy, an excuse?

We have been keeping busy, like the rest of you!
The kids had a Halloween party on Tuesday with the daycare kids...we carved pumpkins, did mazes, ate pizza! and more...they were all so adorable (Haellie-puppy, Sydney-snow white, Carter-mouse, Alli-pumpkin, Logan-red power ranger)
I did take Carter and Sydney out on Halloween, and we hit about 10 houses, before our church "halloween party"...the kids had a blast...
Well...I am heading south to spend the weekend with my sisters and grandma!
tonight is girls night! Can't wait!!!!!
I will post pictures later!
