FBC 2010 Valentine Banquet

We had our Valentine Banquet for our Youth Group
on February 13th. I know that I am late getting
pics on~but~ we were out of town last week
for several days. Therefore, I was unable to
update my blog.
I am sooooo sorry...I know everyone
was waiting and waiting for me to post. LOL!
Anyway, the banquet was for the Junior class
and up. We had a pretty good turn out.
We had a great meal, lots of fun and games,
and a TREMENDOUS devotion by
Bro. Tony Clower.

Valentine's Day Treat!

My husband has been VERY sick this week,
with what the doctors said was a stomach virus.
We have had stomach viruses before, BUT NEVER
He still continues to be weak and hasn't yet
regained his strength. I took him to see our
PCP this morning. He told us that it could
actually have been EITHER a stomach
virus OR food poisoning. ( I had taken him
to the ER Sunday morning because he had become
extremely dehyrated!~ and it was the ER
doctor who told us it was a virus first)
Either way, it has been awful, and I am
so anxious for him to be feeling like himself again.
Yet, even as sick as he has been, he ordered
this for me for Valentine's Day! He was
afraid he might not be able to get out to
shop so he ordered it online~while sick
in bed~on his laptop! Oh, the wonders
of our age! No need to ever leave the house!!
He wanted to get me something special, so
he ordered these. Freshly dipped
~the day they are shipped~
strawberries! They are as yummy as
they are pretty! I just couldn't help
sharing! Aren't they just lovely?

Isn't this a cute picture of Emily?
She was playing in the living room the
other day with her "twins".
Their names are Amy and Adam.
She is a very sweet little girl and so
imaginative. I am sure it won't be
long till she is no longer playing with dolls
so I definitely thought that was

A Great Deal

My husband had an appointment yesterday
in another town. After his appointment, he
went by a used book store there. Guess what he
found? Several, very nice, Abeka books, and an
8th grade Saxon Algebra 1/2 book.
Using the Abeka catalog which I have,
and the Saxon website, I determined
that had we bought these books
new, they would have cost approximately
$240.00. Instead, we paid $41.00.
Isn't that great? All the books are in
excellent condition, with no writing
in them. All but one, is the most
current editions. We may have to
purchase a few items to complete
the set, but still, this was a great
savings. And, all the books that he found
were for grades above her level now.
Just thought that I would share this
you. It's not often that one stumbles
upon such a deal as this! :)
