A few weeks ago I learned about Aztec having an Oktoberfest. Being a Tradition from Germany, and me missin' life there so, there was no way I was missin' out! Even if it wasn't in September. So I got out me and Will's leaderhousens and ventured over to Aztec. They had a parade, booths, clowns, bratwursts, face painting... It was a great road down the memory lane.. Even though it didn't quite compare to the real thing. I really was grateful for the chance to go.
So many people commented on our dress.. Especially Will's.. Said he was so authentic... He should have been the mascot. Fun Fun!
Here's a pic of us afterwards!
And yes it is a holiday all about the alc.. we just skip that part. So no worries. I'm not exposing my children to anything of the sorts.

I don't know if everyone knows, but Nathan is extremely talented when is comes to drawing. But he has One Huge Issue... He never thinks his work is good enough. So almost always, he throws it away. So frustrating, because it is more than most people could ever hope to do, with plenty of classes. He's got born talent!
You can judge this for yourself. I have attached his latest big peice of work. And by big I mean the size. Normally he just draws on the back of the church programs, they hand out every Sunday before church starts. He draws during sacrement. He says it helps him listen to the speakers better.. I wonder though, since most his art is of Football players. :) AnyWays, this piece he did for one of his Sister Casey's nanny kids. Its a Dragon! And it only took him 15 minutes... Now if it was me.. I think it would have taken me a bit longer! ;)
