Celebrate Good Times

On Saturday night we celebrated my nieces' birthdays!
Does it feel like we are always celebrating a birthday around here? I guess that's what happens when you're close to family.

This is Jennifer with Katie. She will be 17 on Saturday.

And Melissa is 12 today! Here they are with their parents. Pam is Marcus's sister.

I also need to say Happy Birthday to my Aunt Carol today! Aunt Carol, if you lived closer, we would have a party for you too!
Yesterday we had another big celebration. We had the ground breaking for our new youth building. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy, so everything had to be done inside.

The is the ceremonial breaking of the pretend ground!

And they showed a bulldozer outside breaking the real ground.

We brought Katie to church with us since it will be her youth building someday! Her dress says "Future Epic Student", because it's the Epic Student Ministry.

Katie LOVED church. She loved the music and all the people. I wish I would have captured her beaming! She was so happy!

The building should be done in January and we can't wait! Marcus and I teach 9th grade Sunday School, so we are just as excited as the kids.

And I am also excited about a project we started in Katie's room. Hopefully we will be done by the weekend and I can show you!

Gotta get back to painting!
