Why does a church need a fog machine?

Ok so i went to an church we used to go to. I felt really uncomfortable. I used to love the vibe and feeling of the music, but man has it changed. Crazy stage lights, huge screens, fog machines blowing fog juice all over the stage, a guy running around the stage with a camera to to flash fancy shots of the musicans on the side screens. It was way to much for me. I would prefer a few people with acoustic guitars and diffrent hand drums. I don't know I find that all the cool stuff puts my focus on the cool stuff and not on being in a group of people WORSHIPING the GOD of CREATION!!!!!! The sign on the way into the parking lot said "Are you ready for an unforgettable experince" Well I had one but I don't think it was the kind they were intending. I used to love this church but as they have grown so much they have changed soooooo much.

Now the people are still just as awesome as they used to be and the church is doing tons of awesome stuff in the community but I have a hard time with the feel and vibe of the place now. It seemed to be all about apperences. Maybe its me?

Yeah thats Santa at Nene and Papa's house. Oh wait I mean Santa Claus. Audy made a point that it was Santa Claus and not Santa.

Ok so are here and Christmas is over we have had a great time. We have had to change our plans seeing as the weather isn't great and the drive here with my mom was revelatory in the sense that driving a long trip alone with three little ones would be a nightmare. I spent a big chunk of the trip in the back of the van managing snacks and dvd players and other such nonsense that needs to be managed when you have a 4 and 2 year old and a 6 month old.

Dear god i am freezing

Ok so It's 10:30 and I am sitting at my computer with a sleeping two year old in my lap, toes getting really cold. Ihave been getting colder and colder all evening. Suddenly I realize that someone must have turned down the heat. I head to the front room to check the theremostat. It's 64* in my house. I know for some people thats were they might normally keep it. I am not that woman I need warmth in the winter. I usually keep it between 68 and 70. But ANyway back to the story.

So I go check and it 64* AND the heat is turned OFF!!!!!!!

Who did this they need to be shot. It's cold outside you don't turn off the heat when its cold. Thats just craziness.

Well its fixed now. On and set at 69*.

There are going to be two little children gettting tickled till they cry in the morning for this craziness. My feet feel like ice cubes.

I am busy!

I am going to probably be a bit flaky with the posting for a while. I am starting a major undertaking in the house and then I will be going on vaca till January. A three week road trip with the kiddos and I. My Mom is flying out to drive with me to back to MO for Christmas. Then on to Des Monies to see this lovely lady and her brood. Next on to the in-laws in Ann Arbor, I am so excited to see them they are more like my family then my in-laws. Then the train makes a stop in Pittsburgh to see my mother-in-laws family. Finally we make our way home with a stop at Ikea on the way. Yes Iam insane to do this by myself but my kids love to travel. So we should be golden.
