To celebrate the first anniversary of our blog, I have posted a random collection of pictures from this past year. We would love to hear from all you lurkers, so please comment by voting on your favorite picture and why you like it. Every one who comments will have their name entered in a drawing, to be held on March 27, for the first copy of our new cd. We will announce the winner on March 29. By the way, we are planning to be in the studio March 24-26, so you will have to wait a month or two for your cd. Have fun!! We are looking forward to hearing from you.

A Belated Anniversary Post
I like “Elizabeth” the best 🙂
I would have to echo the first comment–“Elizabeth” is just such a sweet picture! Makes me want to be a little girl again! 🙂 What a great idea for the anniversary post! Love you all! Marissa
UMMM I think my favorite is the “hard working boys “picture the reason is because I also have six brothers and I think it just shows what brotherhood and boyhood is all about !
I loved all the pictures ! and what a good idea! I also really enjoy reading your blog!
Your sister in Christ
Yay! A drawing… I love em!
Ok, I love the one of Mitch and Ali… but I also love the one of Elizabeth… but I also love the cornshuckin’… but, no. My fav has to be of your dad… totally love the glasses, the smile, um… it’s just so, so, like Mr. Bontrager. I guess I’ll leave it at that.
Thanks for being our friends and for letting us be that. 🙂
Love ya all lots!
I think my favorite will have to be the one of Joshua playing the dobro
very hard decision but I think that I like “best friends” the best. I guess I might be a little partial.
I would probably have to pick the one of “Elizabeth”.
Hi its me again 🙂
I just wanted to say I really like Chelsy’s jumper in the “A SPECIAL MOMENT FOR SISTERS ” picture .What a cleaver idea ! I think I will do the same thing!:)
I like “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep”
I like “Elizabeth” the best.
I liked “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep”.
My favorite picture would probably be “Best Friends”. I also like the pictures of Rebecca and Elizabeth!! So Adorable!! -Tiffany Bontrager
hey Bontrager family, from snow-covered N.Y.! awesome, a drawing! since everybody else so far said which picture they liked the best, I will too! M-M-M-M, now I lay me down to sleep, giving love, and Elizabeth…you narrow it down – I just couldnt make up my mind!*smiles*
Love to all,
I like the one with Elizabeth also! Of course, she is a cutie pie, but I like the picture because I want to know what she was thinking. She looked so intense.
Happy lurker for about a year now!
Well, the “Old” folks at the Yoder house have to vote for Marlin in the shades:) It has that “youthful” look to it. It must be the vintage year:)
Love the pictures!!! And Happy Blog Birthday/Anniversary!! We’ve enjoyed all the pictures and updates!!! My favorite pictures from this post are; Elizabeth, Giving Love and Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord!!
~Elizabeth for the Ulmer crew!
They are all good! but I love “Elizabeth”, “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord” and the boys husking corn best. -Wanda
I like “Elizabeth” the best. It is so cute! It looks like she’s in deep concentration – Carrie
“Hard Working Boys” is my choice.
Greetings from the SOUTH. I like ‘Elizabeth’…the black and white and her serious look. Blessings to all of you. Diane Y.
hey guys! i think i will have to go with the one of your dad with the shades cause it reminds me of my dad. i love that look mr. bontrager. you pull it off well! 🙂
may the best man win! tiff
I like the “Hard working boy”!
Greetings to the Bontrager family, A favorite………………….. We enjoy ALL of them! To have to say, um…the one of sisters on the porch because of it being on the “porch” where we have enjoyed blessed fellowship with ya’ll! So, add our name to the list. Praying for you on your up and coming recording! Our love-The Mayo family
I liked the “learning together” picture. It’s nice to see children, particularly boys, enjoying books and learning, especially as a family. Hope the recording’s going well.
All the photos have their own special charm. From a purely photographical stand point, I would definitely say “Elizabeth”. I think that is good enough to be entered into a contest.
However, just looking at them for the fun of it, I would say “Our Favorite Dad”. However I could also make a case for “Best Friends”. It would have been easier if you had just posted one good picture and a bunch of bad ones. All the pictures have something that I liked.
I saw you guys on WHO-TV 13 in Des Moines on the noon news. It was a clip of Mitchell and Allison performing at the homeless shelter in Des Moines on Resurrection Sunday.
Hope all is going well for you in the recording studio.
I really like the photo “Elizabeth.” It could easily be framed and displayed. Very nice.
Hi! I like “Elizabeth” & A sister moment, & Make A Joyful Noise Unto The Lord. They’re all good really!:) Hope everything goes well w/ recording! Praying for you! A cousin, Dorcas
My fav is “Giving Love”. That’s so precious! And yes, I’m a lurker (from Portland, OR!)… : )
Ohhh, how can anybody chose what they like the best?? I like them ALL! (I’ll have to admit ‘favorite dad’ picture made me laugh though)
