The teens are excited and so are we! We covet your prayers that all goes well and that the Holy Spirit will speak to the heart of every teen in attendance about the importance of learning to communicate with God.
More updates to follow. Busy Busy!
We also had a great day at church with over 25 teens in attendance on Sunday morning and about 20 back tonight. Dan and I are really proud of our kids! They all pitched in and did their assigned duties after church tonight to clean up the whole church. All the decor is up and the church is cleaned and ready for lots of teenagers!

Here is a short video clip of Darren singing Casey Jr. with his Thomas train set! He will literally play with this train set and all his animals on and off ALL DAY long! He loves it. He also sings the song "Casey Jr." many many times a day. I DEFINITELY have it memorized! He's a cutie pie!

We had a good time practicing after the service tonight with our teen ensemble singing in Teen Revival. What great kids we have!! Such sweet and willing hearts. There is nothing quite as sweet as watching young people sing about the things of God and knowing that they mean those words from their hearts.
Afterwards, shared some chocolate cake and some laughs with a few of our teens. Isn't it fun to serve God?!
Teen Winter Revival is ONE WEEK FROM TOMORROW! Woo Hoo! We are excited and so are our kids. Dan and I watched the clips recorded for the skit video last night and had MANY laughs! Crazy kids! Excited about a revival night just for teens to have a good time of fellowship with each other, but MAINLY to be challenged in the area of prayer! Pastor also preached a GREAT message about prayer tonight.

We also played the game "Come When You Are Called!" Not an idea original to me. Darren would go and hide anywhere he wanted. I would call his name in a normal tone, and if he wanted to "win" he had to come running as fast as he could when he heard his name and say "Yes ma'am!" He loves doing this and it is a great way for him to learn to come the first time he is called. He is such a good little man!
Had a fun date with my Babe! I love Thursday date nights! We had a delicious meal at the salad bar and then finished a few finalizing plans for Teen Winter Revival which is only a week and a half away! Hard to believe. We are excited!
Thank you, God for the AMAZING family you have given me!

Dan and I enjoyed spending the day at Golden State Baptist College with Karen and Jezzel! What a great place! We enjoyed being a part of the classes and chapel and seeing the great spirit of the young people. Darren enjoyed playing with Jason and Mary Azzarello's boys!

These pictures are from our nice "family date" this morning! Dan did not have to teach school today so we slept in and then went for a late brunch at Denny's! We got a coupon for 25% off of our entire breakfast! What a treat to get to go out as a family in the middle of the day!! Looking forward to the rest of the day just being lazy together!

This is what I found when straightening up before bed. I had asked him earlier just to put his toys on one of the tables. I was CRACKING UP when I saw them all standing erect and perfectly aligned! Too funny! He's a cutie!

Ever had a chopped salad? It is simply called a chopped salad because all the ingredients are chopped to roughly the same size. (Which makes it much easier to eat in my opinion; plus you get a little taste of every flavor in each bite.) It is a yummy way to have lunch!
You can be creative, add whatever you like!
Here is my creation from lunchtime today...
Blue Cheese Chopped Salad
The following items chopped and tossed with Raspberry Olive Oil Vinaigrette Dressing...
A YUMMY way to be healthy!
(I also added a turkey burger. I bought some of the already frozen patties and just cooked one up with the same dressing as my salad plus a bit of salt and pepper. No bun, just enjoyed it's flavors.)

There is a lady in our church who brings balloons for the kids every Sunday morning. Darren just LOVES that! When he was little, before he learned her name he called her "BaDoon!" Just thought you might enjoy a fun picture of our very fun little man!

We had 16 go out soul-winning and over 20 teens in church! We didn't have much time actually out soul-winning, but still saw 4 saved! Praise the Lord!
Gearing up for our 3rd Annual Winter Teen Revival on Monday, March 1st, 7:00 pm! Going to be some great singing, skits, preaching by Pastor Mark Lewis of Vacaville and of course...pizza and pop! The kids are getting excited and so are we! So great for teenagers to get together with other Christian teens for a fun time of fellowship and great preaching.
Also, really excited about our first Teen Ladies Winter Banquet. All the girls are buying their formal dresses and getting excited. So am I!
Thanks, God! Serving You is so much fun!

Darren was playing golf this evening with his sword! I was showing him how to hit the ball (sort of!) and I would say..."Fore!"
So he started playing. He would hit the ball and say..."Gore!" Dan and I had a good laugh over that one!
He is so much fun!
