Saddening News For You All

Well, I have two bits of sad news. The first is that, when I sat down to look up my blog, my pants caught on a little nail that is sticking in the computer desk, and now they have a little tear/hole in the knee. I am so sad.... One of my only two good pairs of jeans.
The second bit of sad news is that I will be leaving the blogging world for four days as I venture off to new places with the Junior group fom church. That is not sad for me, but sad for those of you who depend on reading my exciting new blogs every other day or so. But take heart! I shall return with good news and exciting tales of winter retreats... good Bible studies, sledding, a bunch of girls talking way too long into the night, cold feet, forgotten towels, and etc... Adam and I were both asked to go along with the Juniors as they go on their annual winter retreat. We will be having a good time I'm sure, and getting to know these kids will also be an adventure. I haven't ever really talked much to this age group lately. I worked with the teen group last year, but this I think will be a little different. Especially since none of them really know me either. So prayers will be appreciated and thoughts coveted. Hopefully I will come home with lots of fun picture to share... If I get a picture card for our camera and new batteries too. Hmmm... maybe I'll have to think about that...

Anyway, our wedding cake is kinda yummy. Adam thawed it out for Valentines Day. The cake is still pretty moist except for the outermost edges. I know we were supposed to wait for our first anniversary, but by then the cake would be past enjoying. So we eat it now, while we still have the chance to see how good of a cake maker Cheryl, Auntie Lori, and Gramanita are. We didn't taste the cake on our wedding day... other that what was smashed on our faces. So we take the liberty of choosing to eat while still enjoyable. I think there is two pieces left... we should eat them (and the rest of the leftovers in the fridge) before we go away tomorrow. Don't you think?
Well, I should be on my way.... I would like to stop by Mom and Dad's today. Hopefully I won't forget that I need to pick up my sleeping bag, a bag for traveling, and there was something else too... Oh, yes. I'm also borrowing Mom's boots. Can't forget those. I'd certainly be the one with cold feet then. Yikes...

You are smart to enjoy the cake while you can. Your Uncle and I waited the traditional year to get ours out to "enjoy"...only to discover that the cake had been merely put in the box without a wrapping! It was aweful and of course it was too terrible to eat! We did not get any of it to eat at our reception (other than the bites we fed each other) because we were too busy being social with everyone and they(workers at reception hall) took the untouched pieces at our spots...and threw them away! (I'm still bitter about this) You were about 7 at the time of our wedding and probably enjoyed a piece...you wouldn't happen to remember how it tasted, would you?

Have fun! I will miss your blogging, but will look forward to all of the exciting things you have to tell about when you return. My prayers will be with you, that God would use you to speak to this group, and that your mind would be at ease.

Adam would probably keep the boys up till 3:00 if he talks alot at night. They usually stay up till 2:00 anyway. I'd expect the girls to stay up longer. Tee Hee!
