Tonight we had our Girls Night In at our house. We had a blast! We made care packages for the seniors that went off to college this past fall! I wish I was in college so I could get a care package like this one! The girls came through with LOTS of stuff to put in the packages. As you can see from the pics we had a fun time! Just thought I'd show a few pics from the night!

OK, so am I the only one who is totally disgusted with the way people are acting to get a PlayStation 3?? I am watching the news and they are telling all these stories of people being SHOT and robbed while standing in line to wait for one. ITS A VIDEO GAME SYSTEM PEOPLE!! Why do the companies make it so only a few people can obtain these? I think they secretly enjoy watching people act like complete idiots. This leads me to believe that most of these people waiting in line are getting a present for their child for Christmas. I recently heard a little presentation on how this lady "simplified Christmas." It was neat to hear how she made Christmas in her house more about Jesus and less about stuff! She decided that if three gifts were good enough for Jesus then it was definitely good enough for her children! She also started decorating with fresh evergreen and fruit to remind her family members of how God provides! I just thought she had really great ideas and I am sad that most people in the world are SO greedy and selfish at Christmas time. Dear Lord, please NEVER allow me to become so greedy that I would stand in line for hours or even days to obtain a worthless item that you promised would rust!

Here is a picture of Fischer in his Chicken Little Costume. I have more that will be coming later. I also attached some pics from Vala's Pumpkin Patch. Notice the very responsible adult sponsor that we had on our trip! She's going to kill me for putting this picture on here but I couldn't resist! This weekend is our big youth rally! We are gearing up for about 190 kids! Alex and Phil are also coming up from Oklahoma so that will be fun!
