Ready for Christmas!

We had a great time getting the church ready for Christmas. Here are some hard working people! I came for the chili feed!

Thanksgiving in Gillette

After that last blog it sounded like we were so busy we haven't had any time for family! So let me say we did have a great trip to Wyoming for Thanksgiving! We went to my sister Tonya's house and met our daughter Kristine and Tasia Kinzle there for a great time of fun, food and hanging out! I was also able to squeeze in a speaking engagement before all the festivities started at Dry Creek. I spoke to the men's group there from the book of Exodus. It was a great meeting and a big thank you goes out to David Dick our AMF missionary in Douglas for inviting me! Here are a few photos of Thanksgiving!

Grandma and Grandpa prepare the feast!

The Whole Gang!

Happy Cousins!

(Don't let her tell you anything different!)

It's My Fault!

Yep, it's my fault! I let myself get too busy to blog again! October and November have blown past us and now we are on the rollercoaster of December! One of November's highlights was taking the triple P Puppet team to Dixon Montana to perform for the Community Baptist Church Harvest Dinner! They invited the whole town and I think everyone showed up! Dixon is about 50 miles from Missoula and Pastor Jim Herd is a friend of mine. We love to help them any chance we get!! Here is the team in action!

The whole town shows up for dinner!
