My mom is throwing a HUGEMONGUS party tomorrow at our church for all the children’s ministry staff.

That is definitely a gifted group of volunteers I’ll tell you that much!

It was originally going to be at our Casa Loco, but because of the hideously foul weather it is now taking place at the Rock of Wilmington!

We have the following: 1 huge inflatable pool, 1 three area slip ‘n’ slide, and 1 ton of food!

so If you do work in the children’s ministry, PLEASE don’t pass up this opportunity for fun, fellowship, and food. By the way, those are the 3Rs of church!.

have any of you tried to get  a wii lately? if you have, you have probably experienced the frenzy going on this week. See, This whole big program for Nintendo Wii came out recently called WiiFit, which has been called “A fitness revolution!”It has FLOWN off the shelves! But to play WiiFit, you obviously need a Wii, so there are NO wiis anywhere retail wise in Wilmington. How do I know?

Well, my whole family decided yesterday that we really want a wii console. Totally unrelated to WiiFit. We have either called or gone to every store in Wilmington looking for a wii. EVERYBODY was sold out!

This morning I looked online at refreshthing.com to see if any wiis were available anywhere.

I got this ( green means available):Yeah, hope I get the last one!

Noah: Dad, can I feel your muscles?

Dad: No. I don’t have any.

That just cracked me up!
