Henry Weinhard's Root Beer Heaven

Root Beer Heaven from Dennis Schmidt on Vimeo.

My brother fell head over heels for his new precious little baby. We all did, she is just so adorable! According to Gerald there is just nothing better in life than drinking Henry Weinhard's Root Beer, holding your new little bundle of joy and enjoying a LSU football game.
We introduced him to the brand of Henry's when he and Paige visited us the first time right after they were married and it has ever since been his favorite brew. We knew how much he would love to have them when the entire family got together last month so we shipped four cases ahead of our trip to see them. They are now happily referred to as "brown soldiers" as Gerald calls them. Maybe we'll send some more for Christmas!
This was just such a fun moment of our time there and I'm still working on a longer version to splice together photos and video to send to all our family, but for now enjoy one of the "bloopers!"
As always... Stay tuned for more!

Firefighter Darby

Darby had a wonderful week in school. Everyday she came home with something new about fire safety and awareness. I was very proud of her while she was very determined to develop a family fire plan, write it out on paper, and display it in her room. She put it up on the back of her bedroom door, it is her escape route we discussed and she excitedly decided to put it into action. We've been to enough hotels that she obviously knew where the fire escape plan was supposed to be on display. So if she ever needs to refer to the guide while getting lost in our house, it is permanently adhered to her door.
