Joseph and Mallory One Year Anniversery - Dec 10, 2016
AvaLeigh Blair Brakebill dedication - September 28, 2014
We decided to return to Iowa for RAGBRAI in 2013.
2012 was another great year. Here are some highlights.
We enjoyed the 2010 Year in Review so much we did it again for 2011.
Jacob and Josh's version of Crazy Train.
The last song from Jacob's 4th Grade Program at Hunters Bend Elementary School.
The last week of July 2010, we participated in RAGBRAI (Registers Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa). It was an incredible experience. This video highlights our trip. Note: This video is 27 minutes (80.5 megs).
While having dinner on New Year's Eve, we discussed what we had done over the past year. I had forgotten some so I decided to make a video review.
We got some snow on Friday, Jan 29, 2010. Freezing rain put a slick surface for sledding on Saturday morning.

We had a great time in the mountians.

Joe's 40 Birthday video
For my 40th birthday, Sharon decided to make a video of my family and friends birthday wishes (as many as she could on short notice). She enlisted Beth to video in Loudon and Merritt to put the video together. The final video was wonderful and about 40 minutes long. I want to thank everyone in the video and everyone else that made my birthday special. To share the video on the web, I have shortened it to a summary video (9 minutes). I want to thank everyone in the video and everyone who made it such a special birthday. A special thanks to Beth and a very special thanks to Merritt. Thank you Sharon. You made it a very special day.

Video Announcement of Joshua
Sharon and I tried to find creative ways to announce the upcoming birth of each of our children to our parents and family. For Joseph, we presented each of our mothers with a "Grandmothers Brag Book" photo album for Mother's Day. For Jacob, at Easter Joseph presented each of our mothers with an Easter egg with a note in it saying Joseph was going to be a big brother. For Joshua, we used this video.

I wanted to use Greg Grahamís song "Little Piece of Heaven" even though it is about a little girl and we have 3 boys. It was the chorus of the song that fit so perfectly:

Lord let this last for ever
Please donít let this moment pass
Slow me down so that I will notice
This little piece of heaven is growing up too fast

Watch Out for Jakey
While finishing her Masters degree, Aunt Cindy Elwood created the children's book "Watch Out for Jakey" as a Children's Literature project. The book is from Joseph's perspective about becoming a big brother. This is a video of the book with Joseph reading it.
