We have been very busy around here...Soooo I will try to update on a few things :)

David and I saw FIREPROOF last week and LOVED it! I highly recommend it. We also just started a Sunday night small group bible study this weekend and for the next 6 studies, we will be using the FIREPROOF Sessions for our study. We really enjoyed the 1st one and are looking forward to next week.... (The song is from FIREPROOF.)
I decided to have 1 more yard sale this weekend, besides staying up late and getting up at the crack of dawn, it went okay. We have cleaned so much our of our basement; we actually have empty space! Those who know me/us , know this is unusual, because I am a pack rat!!!

On Saturday night we had a small dinner party for my Dad's birthday. It was 3 guys that he works with and their wives. My brother came too. It was a fun night, I made 3 different kinds of chili, SPICY( recipe from our friend Brent), Steak-n-Shake & White Chicken Chili......WE had fun hanging out, playing Wii, and some Bingo. The boys love when people are over, they had a blast!!! It was a good dinner with great friends!

On Sunday we did not go to church, instead we did a fundraiser walk for our 7 year old neighbor Hannah. She was diagnosed with Raynaud's when she was about 4 years old. (Learn more about Raynaud's at http://www.raynauds.org/) Since then, the Raynaud's been discovered to be a secondary condition, orindicator, of a more serious disease. This disease is Juvenile Scleroderma. It is rare and different from adult-onset Scleroderma. Hannah has Systemic/Diffuse Juvenile Scleroderma which involves the hardening of her skin and early internal organ involvement including heart, kidneys, muscle function and joints. (Learn more about Juvenile Scleroderma athttp://www.jsdn.org/aboutjsdn.htm). We felt like it was important to do the walk as a family. It was a warm fall day, but a beautiful walk, with neighbors & good friends for a wonderful cause!

Today was a typical Monday, BUSY! I caught up on lots of things and made dinner for a family at church. Michael had soccer practice and I had a Mom's club meeting...Someday we will slow down, right???

From our bible study:
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27
