A Sunday Full of Memories

Looking back at my childhood I can recall a number of specific memories that have stuck with me for one reason or another.  Whether it was receiving a gift that I had longed for…or taking a trip somewhere special…these memories were strong enough to stand the test of time and still remain relevant in my life.  If I had to wager a guess, I would say this past...

A Special Halloween Treat!

Finally!  The secret is out and we can talk about it!  Many of you may remember how we surprised the kiddos last year with a special trip to Disney World…well, we decided the trip was so special that it was time to head back.  We planned and booked the trip months ago, and we’ve been trying to figure out a way to spring it on them that was different than...

MICHIGAN 2010: The Videos

Well…..we’re back!!  It was a wonderful vacation that has (again) provided us with memories to last a lifetime.  But as we try to ease back into our routines (and crawl out of the mountain of laundry), it is taking a little longer to get the pictures organized and blog post written up.  So, I thought this would be a good time to post up the videos I made...

Thoughts For A New Year

Happy New Year everyone!  It is hard to believe that not only 2009, but the entire ’00′ decade has come to a close.  And while there is still no real consensus on what to refer to the past 10 years as (Zeroies? Double aughts? Oh-ohs?), I am filled with amazement, pride, and satisfaction at what they brought to the Oldweiler family.   Looking back to when I...

Lights…Camera…Oldweiler?

December is upon us, and with it comes the Christmas shopping season.  In the spirit of giving, I decided to give myself a brand new HD Camcorder  To be fair, the gift was for our family in hopes of getting better at recording our wonderful kiddos as they grow up.  While we have 20,000+ digital pictures, we have very few videos.  So…I’m about to change...
