This is a Godin Montreal hybrid guitar. It can do regular acoustic guitar sound, or electric. Matthew has been wanting to get this particular one for a long time. Today he got a call from McPherson's Music store, telling him they had one come in that he could look at and try playing. So of course he went to town to see it. When he was done playing, they asked him what he thought of it. He said it was awesome, and he definitely wanted to buy one when he had the money. "Well, it's yours!" they said! "We can't tell you who bought it, but they just wanted to say they love you and appreciate what you are doing out there." (meaning leading worship at church)
So as you can see he is very happy, still in shock, but very grateful and humbled that someone would do this for him!!
Whoever you are, if you're reading this,

Kids Say the Funniest Things

Tonight our church had a fun catered dinner with entertainment. Each of the fold groups did something. There were skits and a few song and dances. They were pretty funny! Here's what our family fold did...

Wondering what the title stands for? Fabulous Family Fold Fondue Fellowship Fun! Sunday night our FOLD group met for dinner. Each time we get together, we have a different meal theme that everyone contributes to. This time was Fondue! We had an oil one for meats, some yummy cheese ones, and some dessert ones- notice the chocolate fountain! I like this picture with the two bald guys of our group, Steve and Matthew. Stephanie, Carla, Krista What makes this a Blog-worthy event is the fact that we had 40 people at our house! 21 adults and 19 kids- who all but 4 of them are under age 4! In this picture there are 19 people. Here are some of the kids.
I like this happy action shot! This was running with a purpose, they weren't just running wild. All the kids played very nicely together. We were actually shocked afterward when we counted up how many kids there were, because it didn't seem all that crazy!

Some things

Matthew and his little building crew are building us a NEW DECK!! I'm excited! It will be bigger and less moldy than the one we have now, and there will be stairs (and I'm hoping for a slide) down to the yard! Here the workers are mixing cement for the footings. Brennen was fired after only about 2 minutes for throwing sawdust into the mix! Logan just stood by, overseeing the operation.Then they made hand print signatures to show that they helped.
This past month we have had wonderful, sunny, springlike weather! Here are some pictures from playtime on our friend Kristi's beach.
Ashlen thought the sand was delicious, and had a feast!
Then she tried to go for a swim! Mommy friends-Laura, Robin, and Kristi. Happy 3/2/10!
