Let's Talk about something Else...

Ok these last few months have been wretched in many ways. However, lest you think we are so beat down by life over here in Hurst that no good ever comes our way...let's talk about some things that are good, no matter how you slice it.

Christmas Snow

I have never seen four more excited children in my LIFE! Also I have never been colder in my life as I stood outside to take this picture...I would also like to have put a picture in here of some of the Christmas lights in our area, but Taylor thinks that is tacky of me. (but I do have some on my iphone if you run in to me).

Sarah Beth and Madeline's Baptism

Look at Pastor Toby, makin' the blog! Sarah Beth recently accepted Christ as her Savior and really wanted to be baptized to show others how much she loves Jesus. Madeline accepted Christ a couple of years ago, but just recently decided to get over her fear of the heater being broken in the baptistry (as it apparently was for her best friend). So she asked if she could be obedient to the Lord in being baptized as well. So check out these sisters!

Now we have tried to tone down all 3 girls and their evangelistic efforts toward Jonathan, who clearly needs a little more spiritual guidance before making important decisions such as these. For instance, he can explain it all to you, but then he holds up his fists and says really spiritual things to the girls like, "HEY! You wanna piece of me?!" and jumps around like a boxer while you are trying to be serious with him.... Which in boy talk really translates, "Would you like to play Iron Man together?" Sigh...I'm trying. Right now I am memorizing Power of a Praying Parent...

COMPLETELY unrelated thoughts~~
On a random side note, what is UP with Taco Bell trying to pass off some drive-thru diet? I am a Bueno woman myself, and cannot imagine EVER resorting to trying to convince others I am on a weight-loss effort by existing on MExi Dip and Chips, for instance. I can only see this working if you literally RAN from Taco Bell to Taco Bell consuming their Fresca menu. What is this woman on the commercial eating for breakfast? Please don't tell me they sell some sort of egg burrito there--that's just super nasty. I'll shut up now and go cheer on Tebow.
