I was glad...

when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. ~ Psalm 122:1

I was looking through some old pictures and videos and found this one from 2009...enjoy! Lol

June Photo Challenge - Week 5

Well, June has finally come to a close. While this was fun to do, I started getting tired of it by the middle of the month. Especially this week...I may or may not have missed some days and played 'catch-up'. :) I don't see myself doing this again, but it was fun to give it a try! Without further ado, here are the final pictures for June...

June 24 'on your mind' (I'm planning a baby shower for July 14)

June 25 'something cute'

June 26 'where you shop' 

June 27 'bathroom'

June 28 'on the shelf''

June 30 'friend' (doesn't he look thrilled to be having his picture

Have you been doing the challenge? I'd love to see your pictures!

VBS 2012

Last week we had VBS at church. It was the first VBS I had ever worked in and it was such a blast! I'm not sure what the total attendance was, but I know that we had about 40 the second night. There were 7 profession of faith, and we certainly look forward to see how these young people grow in their relationship with the Lord.

The theme was 'The Good Soldier' and the lessons were from 2 Timothy 2:1-4...'Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.'

Getting ready for pledges and the theme song.

Col. Courageous comes to the rescue

Maggie, Dad & I had fun being in the skit.  (Unfortunately, this is the only pic I have of Maggie & I.)
The kids loved it and it was a great way to teach some basic Bible truths to the kids!

Ticket drawing. Kids would get a ticket for each night they came, bringing a visitor and their Bible. They got to choose a prize if their ticket was drawn.

Penny I'm sure you figured out, the girls won that night. :)

Pastor had to eat a spoonful of baby food...yuck!

Poor mom was the only girl that had to eat baby food.

Wednesday night we had a reporter from the paper come out. Of course it HAD to be the night Maggie & I made our debut in the skit. ;) You can go see the pictures and read the write-up on Maggie's blog!

Praising the Lord for a great week and already looking forward to next year!

Hello Monday {Demo Derby}

Hello Monday! It's a new week with new opportunities! We went to the Demo Derby this past weekend...I hope you enjoy the pictures throughout this post. :)

Hello rainy days that remind me of Whidbey.

Hello sunshine that peeks through the clouds to warm things up again!

Hello're looking very lush from all the rain and sunshine!

Hello summertime fun with sidewalk chalk and pool time.

Hello's so fun watching you walk and rediscover the world around you.

Hello good, Godly music...there's nothing better to listen to.
(I'm loving my new CD by the Assurance Trio from HBBC.)

Hello fresh fruit from the orchards.

Hello eating cherries like they're candy.

Hello Braxton. I loved sitting with you at the Demo Derby and seeing your excitement!

Berries 'N Cream Wonton Cups

Looking for a light, summery dessert? Look no further! These are so yummy, it's hard to stop at one...and since they have fruit and yogurt they're healthy right?!

24 square wonton wrappers
melted butter
1 (single serving size) container strawberry yogurt
1 cup whipped topping

Preheat oven to 350*. Brush one side of wonton wrapper with melted butter and then sprinkle with sugar. Place wrappers, sugar side up, in mini muffin pan. Bake for 6-8 minutes until edges start turning golden brown. Let cool.

Fold yogurt and whipped topping together and fill wonton cups. You can spoon it in, but I like to put the mixture in a ziploc bag, snip the corner and 'pipe' it in...much easier! Once cups are filled with cream, top with berries!
