:: Last Friday (7-10), we had a Game Night at Kim and Gary's! It ended up being a fabulous, fun time! There were four couples altogether -- Gary, Kim, Me, Chris, Kim, Jason, Taylor, and Shelby! We arrived around 7:00, and enjoyed a delicious meal that Gary and Kim had prepared -- grilled chicken, jalapeno poppers, corn on the cob, green beans, macaroni and cheese, and and and! It was like a holiday spread of endless, delicious foods. They really outdid themselves! For dessert there was a chocolate delight and a berry crumble. Yum! They really treated us all to quite a feast! After we ate, we played a game called Loaded Questions -- basically, a question is read, each person writes down an answer, and then one person tries to pair up the answer with a player. Harder than it sounds! As Gary made more and more blue frozen drinks, our answers got funnier and funnier as you can imagine. Ha! We laughed so hard, our ab muscles were sore the next day! We are all looking forward to the next Game Night!!
:: Nadene and I had a great meeting last night! We decided on this as our memory verse for the week:
This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it - the Lord is his name. Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
We all question God...I think he welcomes it. He wants for us to call to him, ask him. The more we continue to ask, the more he will show us.
:: Chris is home!! He arrived back in Abilene last night around 3:00 am. Whew, he is a tired boy! They were told that they could get some sleep and come in to work later, but of course he got up and went in at the normal time. He's an overachiever like that :) Me, I would have slept. No one wants to see Kelley on 4 hours of sleep, I guarantee it!
:: We broke down and bought a new dishwasher -- our water here is so hard, that it just ruins the appliances. We've been handwashing and that is NO FUN. Looking forward to getting it installed!! We also bought a new mini fridge for our back porch. The one we have out there died awhile back, and we like to have it to store all of our beverages. Our indoor fridge really has limited space.
:: We are also contemplating the idea of turning off our Direct TV service and going with something else like Netflix or Hulu. We barely watch any tv, and with a service like that we could pick exactly what we want to watch and not pay for 100s of channels we never watch. So it could definitely save us some money. Something like this excites me because I would be able to pick some series I never watched and watch it from the very beginning -- like Grey's Anatomy. So, we'll be doing some research on this...
:: Time to have some dinner and go relax!!
