New Years Activities

Here are some pictures of activities that we have done this season. We have been kept busy having an extended family gathering at our house, doing a bunch of outside activities and hosting a New years gathering with our friends from church.

The crokinole championship trophy!

For those of us that have never won:

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrew 13:5 

 

Merry Christmas

Our family did a number of concerts over Christmas but had not gotten around to taking a family picture. We noticed this nice sign at one of the churches so we quickly took a picture after a concert.

 

Isaiah 9:6-7

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

New Shed

This fall we decided to take down our old cover-all and build a replacement shed. We are making the replacement a bit larger so that we can fit a few more things!

The cover-all.

 

Taking down the cover-all. Some people don’t seem to like being in pictures.

Creation Speaker and Creation Snacks!!

On Friday, Sept. 15th, we had Thomas Bailey, a speaker from Creation Ministries International come to our church. It was a very informative evening about how evolution is impossible. He also showed how the rest of the Bible is very tied to Genesis and that Jesus quoted from there.

Thomas Bailey speaking.

Mom arranged for people to bring Creation snacks (The Seven Days of Creation). Below are some pictures. Sorry, some are a bit blurry : ).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyone for some “Ocean Punch”?

Genesis 1:1- In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Fishing Trip!

On June 15, we went up to Big River for a Father-son fishing trip with our church. We caught many fish as a group but only kept a few.  The biggest fish caught was about 30 inches and the smallest was about 12 inches (that made it into the boat).

Matthew 13:47-50. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 

Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
