Valentine Banquet

Our church had a Valentine Banquet and all the profits were for our building fund. So, we got dressed up and had son take out of focus photo of us..... It was a lot of fun. They had the staff play the Newlywed Game. The first question was - What is the favorite past time that you and your spouse do together.- The pastor stood there for a very long time with a face that said, "Do I answer this in front of the church?" and everyone was laughing and his wife said, "Your daughter is right there." So, he chose yardwork, but somehow, I think he had a different answer.
They drew names for different games to win prizes. This is musical chairs.

A hula hoop contest with rotten hula hoopers with a lot of personality!

Two singers, this guy is fabulous.

This is Shirley and she plays such beautiful harp music. She does weddings and events. She plays Stairway to Heaven on the harp. We missed it tonight but I really want to hear that. She told me she plays that one time and I almost spit across the room laughing. I don't know why but someone playing that on a harp is funny to me. It is supposed to be really pretty.

It was such a good fun time tonight. I got to get to know two other couples at our table that I really didn't know well- one is Shirley the harp player. We had our friends from Niceville that moved here and go to another church come. We had to tell everyone that we met at the mall. I think we need to make up a better story. Darryl told them that he told his friend after they left from meeting me that I was the girl he would marry. Twenty years of marriage and three and a half years of dating and that is the first time I have heard that. (He says he told me that before)

Michelle- Thanks! All over pattern to keep the eye moving and make you skinnier- see, I have some gifts.

I'm glad you had fun. Dwight and I chose not to go since it was our anniversary. We wanted it to be just the two of us. Does it still count as being the two of us even though we ate out and went to the movies? ;0)

This is outstanding!
It seems you belong to a church like no other!
What a blessing! How refreshing!

Becc- we do have a great church- but now I am scared to just show up at the pastor's house- he might be "gardening"
