Eagle River...

(click on here to read about "the making of a community")


located in the Great North Woods...
(on the lake...by the pier of my parent's home...)
1970's

40 years later...it is still as beautiful.
Spring 2009
(My Hubby and our Heartbreaker)


Snowmobile Capitol of the World...


Where Eagles fly...
(My dad's uncle's name-also Krueger...wonder if there is a relation?)

Where my dad's Uncle and Aunt made their home, before it was passed down to my dad.
(*Will post photos here later*)

Where my parents, brother and I moved to after my dad retired from the Air Force in 1981.
(*Will post photos here later*)

Where my hubby and I spend some time...
before leaving to be "baby newlyweds" in New Mexico in 1982.


Where my little sister was born a couple of years later.



Where my brother and sister graduated from high school...



Where our kids love to visit between our military moves.
1992


1993

There are many more photos throughout the years, but those are in storage boxes.


Where they have awesome Fish Fry dinners on Friday!

(Spring 2009)


Spring 2010


Here is one of my favorite photos of my parents...not sure when this was taken.
(maybe 2003?)
(I sure do miss you, mom!)


I think this is a great photo of my dad!
 (taken for his 2010 church directory).


So blessed to have a wonderful family.  
We have many great memories of times in Eagle River! 
And look forward to making more memories...

It will be so, so, so good to have my dad's surgeries for the multiple bypasses
 successfully completed next week...
surgeries are scheduled for Thursday, Oct 28th.
and have him back on the Road to Recovery!

 

"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.






“They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a HOPE.
Jeremiah 29:11





I'm so behind! but will come back to add some other photos and some drawing samples. And to the winners of my drawing giveaways, Thank you all so much for getting with me...I have some completed already and need to get to the post office and UPS store. I will be contacting you and also continue working on the other orders.

Here are a few Eagle drawings...

Looks like such a beautiful place! I love the colors of the leaves, definitely what I miss most about living in the Northeast.

I hope for a healthy recovery for your dad . Your sister and brother are beautiful as your mom . They look east indian but your mom looks philipino as yourself. Asian anyway . Nice pics.

I'm praying for your father's surgery to go well!

Pondside said...

I pray your dad's surgery goes very well and he has the same great benefits that my dad had from multiple by-pass surgery.(twenty years ago and still going strong at 84)
Thinking of you!

I see where you girls get your great looks. You mother was a truly beautiful lady. Wish your father the best, and he is not bad either. I forgot what the price was on your smaller work, so I have not sent you an idea. It makes a difference, as I cannot spend a lot on very many.

Thank you for sharing this 'e' post! I love to see pictures of new places. Best of luck to you and yours in these upcoming weeks!

Nina in Portugal said...

Great Post Maria! I Love all the pictures you always post!

I can't wait for you to have some grand babies so you can start showing baby pictures...and comparing them to your own babies when they were...well...babies! To see who they look like. (Hope all that made sense! giggle)

Happy Sunday my friend!
