It turns out that we had a Fisher (sometimes known as an American Marten). Good ol' Marty and his wife took in two orphaned fishers and we got to enjoy watching them grow and learn to hunt and all the time I was thinking, that looks so familiar. So, we do regret to tell Bobbey and Leslie that your title must be revoked. We hope you've enjoyed your 7 month reign and all the perks that went with it. Please return your tiara's and sashes back to us within the week.
And now, a new queen must be crowned! Drum roll, please.
How foolish we were to doubt you when you even included a photo link in your comment. You are wicked smart and we offer our deepest apologies and highest regard for your wildlife prowess!

Preparing for her breakout session at next year's Women of Faith conference.
Stashing her liquor (that she doesn't want the Women of Faith people to know about)
"It's apple juice, people. Really."
What do ya mean "walk a straight line"?

Things have been hectic around here. Lots of needs, lots of opportunities to serve others. Oh, and lots of completely selfish thoughts like -if you have a question, need help, need encouragement, need prayer, or just need a sympathetic ear -TOUGH! I'm all tapped out so back off. Yep, real Christ-like ain't it? Well, clearly I haven't said this to anyone and on most days am not quite ready to peel my skin off my own body but it remains true that serving is hard. It requires a certain level of sacrifice, and sacrifice requires a certain level of selflessness, and well, selflessness doesn't leave much time for self. And that is where it all comes down, doesn't it? I'm a loser.
But I'm fighting my loserness and I suppose that's worth something. I will be teaching/sharing at a class tonight at church and am rather nervous. You can say a prayer for me if you think of it.
Heather/Cammie -I know this wasn't much but hopefully it will hold you over for a day or two. =) Love you.

Fun, fun. I think I enjoy this holiday even more now than I did as a kid. I have no pictures of the kids in their costumes. Loser mom. Sorry. Partly because they had stripped out of them (they were clothed underneath) within 5 minutes of getting to our church carnival. You can't slide down big blow up things while wearing capes and light sabers. shrug. It was quite a night though. There were 2 adults and 5 kids in my van. And two adults and eight children in the church van that Tim drove. Here are some random pictures of the crew as best I could keep up with them:
Nathan on the mechanical bull.
Javon on the bull.
Spider-Elijah and Yoda in the background.
Tim went dressed as a Pastor. Original. Oh wait, he wore his Panthers hat. So, that made him a pastor/Panther's fan. He goes all out for these things. =)
