A moment to share

When I was little, I remember going to kindergarten for half days in Monterey, California and coming home and finding a fun lunch all laid out for me by my mom. One time my lunch was a purple theme. Everything, including my milk, was purple. She's just fun like that. Much more recently, she had this idea of filling Z's choo choo train with all the trimmings for sugar cookies. Z loved it...a little too much - we nearly ran out of certain candies before the cookies were all decorated. I'm sure he had sweet dreams of trains, cookies and candies that night.
"Guess who this is!" she said. I didn't get it at first, but I'm still laughing, mom!
My parents left on Monday, I talked with them today and they're home safely. We had such a nice visit. Ben and I got to take a couple of hikes while we had live-in sitters. The most recent was out to this awesome oak tree just a field and a forest away from our house.

My Dad took this with my camera.

Here's another sneak peek at the banner I'm working on. I've had my parents, my husband, my cousin, Grace, and friends from the church all help me with this 8'x11' project. I'm so close to being finished I can almost taste it. I was excited to find this video of an abbreviated church service available on-line! You can hear our worship team and a special music song that Ben and I sang that Sunday they happened to video. {{Grandparents, it might take a bit of time to buffer, just let it sit for a while after you download it if it's choppy.}} Click here to hear the song we sang this past Sunday, only much less accompanied. We only had Ben's guitar and a drummer. Well, I need to get working on that banner!!!

Did the purple milk make your teeth purple?!
Have a good week!

Hi Becca! I loved seeing the video from your church. How awesome to see a more "real" version of you. (you know, as opposed to just the cyber version).

Miss you!!
