Well, I started writing this post a few weeks ago, but then I went to Texas so that kind of delayed it from getting published. But I'm back home now and making good progress digging myself out of the mountain of work that piled up while I was gone. After I finish sorting though all my Texas trip pictures, I plan to post some of them here, but until then, enjoy this long-overdue post.

After getting all those dirty dishes cleared away, the guys decided to go outside and do some shooting.
In the beginning of December, I and some of my family attended the regional Uniting Church and Family conference in Wake Forrest, NC. (http://ncfic.org)
The one and only Kevin Swanson. If you go to sleep during one of his lectures, there's something wrong with you. ;-)
Kevin Swanson's message "Surviving Tough Economic Times" was excellent. If you get a chance, I highly encourage you to listen to it.
On Saturday night, after the conference was over, the Horn family took us out to eat at a little Mexican restaurant.
See? I told you the restaurant was small. One thing is for sure though, those Mexicans know how to cook. The food was awesome!
On the Lord's Day, we attended Hope Baptist Church. Because of the large number of visitors from the conference, the service was held in a large tent.
Since it was Pearl Harbor Day, we observed a moment of silence for the soldiers who had sacrificed their lives on that fateful day in December, 1941.
