Spring Break Get-Together

The Westlys were our gracious hosts this past Wednesday for a life group gathering. We appreciate them having us all over. It was a wonderful time with lots of laughing and way too much eating. It was all topped off with a yummy Costco cake to celebrate Brad Wright's 29th birthday. ;) We don't have anything planned for this Sunday night, but hopefully we'll have something "on the books" soon!

Here are a few pics from the evening. It's mostly the kids, I'm not a very good event photographer!
Will was super excited about getting my cake spoon when I finished with it!
Wouldn't it be nice to always have a Lana around to rock our babies to sleep?

Brad caught me, I was waiting for the "money shot" of him shoving
a huge bit of cake in his mouth.
Dan Cardenas, such a cutie
Will's trying to see how the big boys like Toben do things.

Saints vs Colts & Upcoming Fun

Super Bowl Sunday is in two weeks- Feb. 7th. We will have a fellowship at that time, so bring a potluck dish or finger food to share and come cheer on your team (or just eat and chat). The location is yet to be decided, but check back for updates.

Also, there is now a link in the right hand margin for our life group calendar. This morning Jason shared some new ideas for get-togethers. We are going to try to have a Sunday lunch on the first Sunday of the month (starting in March), two brown bag evening fellowships, and one Saturday evening girls/guys night out a month.

The calendar will be completed soon so everyone can plan on being there!

There will be a life group fellowship this Sunday night. Probably at the Wrights', but nothing is in stone yet. Keep your evening open after the Cowboys' game!
