Faith and Darren...
I hadn't seen Darren for a little while...I looked in his bedroom and there he was...hiding in his toy box...doing "his business!" Luckily I had a pull-up on him at the moment. Potty-training is SUCH a joy! (nice hair, huh?!)
Great Sunday in our teen department today...over 25 teens. Great morning service with an excellent message from pastor about keeping the Christian life fresh or "sweet and new" every day. Great truth.

We had a great Sunday at church. Good crowd this morning and tonight. We had 18 of our teens back at church tonight and in SNAC played a game of "C'Mon Fill the Bowl!" Teens had to pass a spoonful of cheerios from spoon to spoon from a full bowl to the empty bowl at the other end of the table. Whichever side of the table had the most Cheerios in their bowl by the end of 3 minutes won. Very entertaining since they ALWAYS cheat! Ha! Then we all sat around the table and ate cereal and milk. Fun! LOVE our kids!

I just wanted to stop and make note of the wonderful, relaxing, comfortable haven a home can be when Christ is the center! How I thank God for the wonderful godly husband He has given me.
The standards and guidelines Christ has set up for us are not to hinder our happiness, but rather to further it! Just as disciplinary rules that are set up for a child will give him security in knowing his boundaries, so guidelines from our Heavenly Father will give us security in our daily lives. Following God's Word will keep us from ways of life that could lead us to wrong and dangerous decisions.
Thank you, God, for one of my favorite words and favorite places...HOME!

Fun family night...Nice dinner at home (grilled chicken breast, mashed potatoes and green beans, Mmmmm!) went to Target for a few items, then Ice Cream Cones at McDonald's! (Hey only 150 calories and it's SO good! C'mon now! We have been real good this week!)
I took several little video clips yesterday of Darren playing his new guitar and singing. They take a little longer to post, so I am just going to upload one right now.
This one is Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. He is just TOO CUTE!! No, you can't have him; he's ours!! Enjoy...
Also, praying for the Kalapp family as they said their final goodbyes to Husband and Dad today. What a sweet service and a great tribute to a great and godly man!

Our snow trip to Lake Tahoe is in 3 weeks. We are excited! So are the teens! Looks like we will have a good group. 2 snow "first-timers" this year! That is always so much fun, and beyond my comprehension! I cannot imagine NEVER seeing snow until I was a teenager?!! Weird!

We had lots of fun on New Year's Day. Darren and I had a pretty yucky cold the days before, but felt better by New Year's Day. Dan's family all came over to our house for a late lunch and we played a bunch of games and watched the Bowl Games. We love to watch football, even though there was no team we were particularly interested in this year. Dan and his sister, Karen were fooling around, celebrating a New Year's touchdown. Their personalities are so much alike! Thought you might enjoy this fun little video clip...
Also, taking down and putting away the Christmas things today. Darren was helping me with a few things, so we were talking about Christmas. Took a picture and little video clip of our chat. He enjoyed this Christmas SO much.
Here is a short little video clip. Sorry it is kind of sideways and up and down. I was taking the video and couldn't really tell what I was getting!
Have a Great Day!
