Happy Birthday Queen B!

We celebrated a couple of weeks ago with dinner and a Casting Crowns Concert.

We sing the "Voice of Truth" and the Queen does an awesome bridge:

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them lookin' down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I'm so blessed to call you friend, I hope you have a GREAT day!

Hunter's arm is whole again. He recently had the last pin taken out, ending our 7 month relationship with his orthopedist-the guy in the glasses next to him bed side. He couldn't have been kinder to Hunter or his two freaked out parents!

I got some birthday love last month

in the form of post-its all over my car.

Which is super cute

and so thoughtful.

But it rained on my parade

and the post-its bled through turning my car pink. Which was fine with me, I need a little more pink in my life:)

You can't see her face but Snow is freaking out.....trying to get the pink off...which she did.

Sunday Best

Last Sunday our youth director's 3rd baby was baptised.

Drew used the opportunity to debut his fancy blazer. It was fun seeing all the guys dressed up.

Who Dat?

Our church is casual. Really casual. I can't think of any other place you can have your baptism,

Hunter's Baptism July 6, 1997

Sing praises to the Lord,

Have your picture taken with the Easter bunny,who will one day grow up to be the youth director.

Watch the SUPER BOWL ,

In the chair of your choice, from home no less,

Hang out with cool people,

While being served by youth running around in referee uniforms, bringing you all the food and drink you want. Good times :)

Church Visits II

Last time was all about nurseries- this time coffee bars and youth hangouts. We got lots of ideas, saw some great churches and talked with really nice people! One had a wall of cardboard testimonies- so cool :)

In February...Love was in the Air

Junior High Cafeteria love....

Hunter and Ryan went to their first school dance.....

with these two sweet girls

two-month-a-versary love

They must want something-teenagers don't show this kind of affection without an agenda.

We really knew something was up when Drew let a girl play with his hair......that can only mean one thing. Not the Drew we know and love.

Mind the Gap

........a British term warning to train passengers of the gap between the train door and the station platform.

A few weeks ago Joe and I taught Junior High Sunday School and the theme "Mind the Gap" fit perfect. We thought, planned, prayed. OK, I planned, Joe bought the Do-nuts:) both equally important. I really thought I had a lesson that was out of the box. In other words, I brought it.

We talked about what stands between us and God. EVERY TIME I asked a question...they had "the" answer.....How do we get to God...Jesus. How many brownie point does is take to get to heaven....Zero. Can you earn your way in.....no. What is Grace....an undeserved gift. If I work in a soup kitchen everyday for the rest of my life.....does it make me a better Christian....No.

I guess they brought it too! They're makin'em smarter these days! We're going to talk "feelings" next, can't wait.

Oh, and we sang my new favortire song Hold Us Together by Matt Maher.

Drew minding his gap-the pins on his sport coat say "Bring Conan back fall 2010".
