Herman’s Wedding – 8/31/2019

My brother Herman is getting married! He lives in Warsaw, Mo, but is getting married in Sedalia. Family of course came in town to see the big day. In traditional Haake fashion, we did it our way. I started off the party of weirdness when the lady at the hotel desk asked for a description of the car. The photo below is what transpired.

I got a very strange look from the lady when she saw what I wrote. Family was already there and we all started getting ready for the wedding.

It didn’t take long before we were all dressed and waiting for the ceremony to start. Before long, Nikki and Herman were up there taking their vows and enjoying their party!

After the ceremony, we retreated indoors to the barn to celebrate more!

Look, a truck. I would guess a Ford, but I don’t see a tow truck.

Everyone except for Hayden.

I love out of town weddings because everybody stays in the same hotel and its a constant party. Here’s to Herman and Nikki!

Webster Groves Flooding – 8/30/2019

We had extremely heavy rainfall near the house. Warnings were going off around the area. Danelle and I decided to dress up and go out for a walk. During the walk, we stopped and helped redirect traffic on South Brentwood blvd to allow a bus to back up and turn around safely. The driver was having issues backing up and had hit a utility pole before we stopped to help. We walked/waded through one section where the water was knee deep!

Here are some of the photos and video of what we saw on our walk. Water over the new trail. The water is up at least 10 feet here,

Looking into the creek near the bridge.

And a video to see and hear the madness.

Cell Phone Repair – 8/13/2019

Sonora has been having bad luck with cell phones recently. The newest one she has was dropped and the screen cracked quite badly.

Her phone was a low end phone and paying a company to replace the screen was almost the cost of purchasing a new phone. Lucky for us, we heard about one of her friend’s dad performing this task himself at home. With the help of a Youtube video and parts online, a new screen and tools came in the mail.

I take no credit (nor do I have painted nails) for any of the repairs. Here are a few shots of the process. Its been a few months since the repair and you would never know an amateur replaced the screen.

Thanks to my amazing wife Danelle who did all the work and made it look easy!

Jen’s Birthday – 8/4/19

Josh was planning a surprise birthday party for his wife Jen. This is a milestone birthday party. There are rumors that she might have just turned 40 but I will not confirm or deny.

Mom and I were there to celebrate with them. Corvin and dad were off on a uni-cycling adventure and missed the fun. I had a good time hanging out with the adults and entertaining Robert and Eve.

July – 2019

Another crazy month of random activities has come and gone. We used to dye our hair as a family, but I’m getting old and less fun. However, Sonora dyed her hair what is supposed to be red and blue but looks more purple and pink.

Corvin and Sonora both got some quality time with both cats at once.

As always, Danelle is looking smokin’ hot!
