1984 - A picture of the cousins: Mindy, Jill, Brandon and Nikki, Josh.

This past Sunday my nephew, Brandon was baptized upon confession of his faith in Jesus Christ!

He attends Restore church in Kansas City. They meet in a highschool and the baptism took place in the pool at the school. Nine people were baptized. One entire family (who all jumped in the pool at the same time), a couple couples (who kissed one another right after they were baptized - so sweet!), some others and then Brandon. We were in tears. Mom and Dad have prayed for Brandon every day and of course were overjoyed that Brandon is choosing to follow Christ. So glad we could go to celebrate! Wish Brandon's daddy was alive to have witnessed it too. He died 3 weeks ago.

"That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

Chinny chin chin

The girls were playing in their cardtable play house. Their daddy decided to join in the fun and this is what I overheard. Adam: Little pigs, little pigs, let me in.

Hannah: Not by the hair of my chinny, chin chin.

Adam (in a rather gruff, wolfish voice) : Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!!

Sophie: NO!! (She really was quite frightened by this conversation)

Adam: Well, ok, then, can I come in for tea?

Sophie: Oh yes. Let me get my tea cups!
