Tonight I had the privilege to lead a group from our church through a teaching called “Christ in the Passover.” Here’s a link to the guide I created for the event as well as a link to pics for the video presentation.
Just thought I’d post a few pics from our Spring Break Trip to Livingston. We built a bridge over the creek. Awesome trip.
Here’s the link for the photo album: http://cornphotos.shutterfly.com/6466
I had to post this video of Kasen and Kesleigh. He was so excited to get the “tractor” he had been asking Santa for. He also thought h was such a big boy when he got to take Kesleigh for a ride. She loved it too.
I also thought I’d post a link to our Christmas pics. There are still more to come, but this is where you’ll find ’em. http://cornphotos.shutterfly.com/5641
Last night Miranda and I took the kids to a traveling circus. It wasn’t really something we planned, but we heard about it (and heard it was cheap) and decided we’d check it out. It was great! We got to sit about 10 feet from the center ring. The elephants walked between us and the ring. Kasen and I also rode an elephant. Miranda says I looked really out of place. That’s OK – I’m amazed at the things I find myself doing for my children. Thought I’d put up a few pics. (Not sure how it happened, but we didn’t get even one picture with Miranda and Kesleigh.)
These are just some pics of some t-shirts I’ve either used or designed over the years for different youth trips and programs. It’s amazing how many memories are conjured up when I look at them.
These are only a few. I can think of some more but I guess I’ve lost the shirts over the years. Let me know if you’ve got any of the missing ones. I’d love to collect pics of them all and post ’em here.
Sorry if you’re not interested, but it’s been a while since I posted any “proud parent” pics. Besides – some of these are just too good not to share. I especially like this first one of Kesleigh. She found the Veggie Tales nativity Jesus yesterday and decided to “chew on Jesus.” I figure that’s a pretty good thing. She’s not even a year old and already knows that Jesus tastes good – that “feasting on the Word” is the best way to live.
Last night I woke Miranda and the kids up @ 11pm. I had no idea the power saw could be heard in the back of the house – besides, it was just 2 quick cuts. . .well. . . that was a mistake. Anyway, we’re leaving tomorrow for a trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama for vacation. The Mathews (mostly Patti) love the beach and try to take a trip every year. However, it’s been a few years since we’ve had so many births recently.
We will be in the car with two kids under 2 for at least 8 hours. We are gonna need all the help we can get to keep them from crying (or at least distract them enough so they don’t realize they’re strapped into a car seat for that long.) I decided that there was no need to buy a portable DVD player (mostly ’cause I’m cheap) when we have our laptop, so the quest began. How could I set up the laptop in the car for Kasen to watch movies/tv shows/cartoons from itunes? I already have a converter so I can plug in the computer and the audio link could be run through the Aux input. All I needed was a little tabletop. Here’s where my old Jr High Shop Class ingenuity kicked in. Here’s a pic of what I ended up with. It’ll work this time, but maybe next time I should invest in a headrest monitor.
I even arranged for the shelf to be taken out when not in use.
