A birthday and a Fall Fest

Several pictures for you today and only one has to do with cards. Today is my oldest son's 20th birthday. I can hardly believe it has been 20 years since I brought home my 7 lb 10 oz baby boy. I was only 18 and a senior in high school and wasn't really sure what I was to do. Thankfully, God was guiding me even though I didn't know it and now,20 years later, I have a wonderful son who is a sophomore at CWU studying history and then on to get his teaching certificate. It is his hearts desire to teach history to high school aged kids. I know he can achieve it! He has a great sense of humor, has run for our city counsel, and is just all around a great person (notice I didn't say kid!)! I love you, Scott, and I'm SO proud of you! So, that is a picture of Scott on the left and on the right is a picture of the card I made him. Note...those are root beer bottles on the card! LOL!

Next are a couple of pictures of the Wild West Fall Fest that took place at our church yesterday. While the number of kids and families that came is very low I'm still happy that I was obedient to God (He told me to make WWFF work) and only God knows how we affected the hearts of the people that attended. The other thing that was very exciting to me is that there were many volunteers that came that don't usually work with the children's ministry that came to help. To me, that is a HUGE success!

I hope you all had a great weekend and I'll see you tomorrow!

Wow. What a lucky man he is to have you as a mother. Notice I said man??? Wow! Does that just blow your mind or what???

In Sunday School today we talked about how many missionaries work very very hard and don't see immediate fruits for their labor. You may never see the fruits of your labor, but I'm certain those kiddos will remember all the fun things they did at their church. You're planting seeds. You go, girl.
