Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I can't say exactly why, but I guess it has to do with the fact that it's kind of the "kick off" for the holiday season. It always guarantees a couple of days off. The days off are spent eating good food, hanging out with the family, watching Christmas movies, and beginning to decorate for Christmas.

This year, my parents, my brothers, our spouses and I went to Mendy & Derek's house in Kings Bay for Thanksgiving. I didn't take pictures of anything except the day after Thanksgiving, when we got The Official Tour of St. Mary's.

And in case you're wondering what that thing is that we're sitting/standing on, it's a big asphalt "submarine" outside the place where Derek works. (He's in the Navy.)

Friday Night, we had dinner with Kyle's mom, her boyfriend and his daughter, and John. Mrs. Edith was wanting sushi, so we ate at Wasabi's. No offense to the others at this dinner, but this was the only picture that turned out! :)

Puppies ... Again!

Are you getting sick of the puppy pictures yet? I'm not.

This one looks exactly like Rosie, except that Rosie never had the little mark on her head.
It's tiny like her.

Puppies ... again.

I've been looking forward to when their eyes open up. But really, now that it's starting to happen, it's actually kinda gross.

Here are some pictures that a friend took last weekend.

Puppy Update

This is a picture of me and Maggie holding the puppy she has aptly named "Blacky-Browny". My friend Amy brought her two girls over to see the puppies yesterday. Maggie helped me to name the puppies: Blacky-Browny (seen above), Browny-Blacky (they're nearly identical), Blacky-Whitey, Whitey-Blacky, Browny, Dakota, and Charlie.

Whitey-Blacky (the only female in the bunch) is the only one who's been spoken for "officially", but we have several friends who are interested in the rest of the pups. Their eyes and ears are still closed, but they're becoming more active. Blacky-Whitey is starting to try to pick himself up on his legs instead of just pushing around on his belly. I'm sure the others will follow soon after. He is the biggest of the bunch at this point. His legs are shaped like Oliver's. We think he'll be built like Ollie.

Blacky-Browny is the smallest and his coloring is very similar to Rosie's. We wonder if he'll look just like this in about two weeks:

Rita Polk: Plugged

This past weekend was our first Journey Church Mission Project. And when I say that it was a success, you can accept my word for it. (read more ... )

The Silver Lining

I work in a church office. One of my daily responsibilities is to check the email address that receives email from the church's webpage. We get emails from seriously ridiculous people on a daily basis. Every parachurch organization, it seems, has an agenda to promote that they feel is best promoted by way of mass emails. To churches.

Take, for instance, the flyer that was emailed to the church office yesterday calling for a boycott of Halloween, questioning the wisdom and criticizing the parental abilities of those who allow, and even encourage (gasp!), their children to read Harry Potter, and claiming that "we walk in the light," so that means Halloween is bad. Because on Halloween, it is dark.

I'm so ashamed to be grouped with those types of people.

But moving along ...

One of the emails we've been receiving with increasing frequency is one that claims that we Christians are losing our freedom of speech. According to this email, certain legislations are being discussed among leaders in our government which would prohibit any pastor to speak from the pulpit and claim that homosexuality is a sin.

If this were to be true, I can already see the silver lining.

Westboro Baptist Church will be doing the majority of its ministry from behind bars.
