A Colonial Thanksgiving

It was a real treat to get to spend this Thanksgiving in Williamsburg, VA. I know that was last week – but after posting about leaving, arriving, meeting up with friends, and more friends, and about an awesome kids pastor, matching sweaters, and even trash cans I took a break from my computer from Wednesday through Sunday and it was wonderful to be off line for several days in a row. Now that I am caught up on the hundreds of e-mails I got behind on… I thought I’d finally post about Thanksgiving. It was like traveling back in time! Except for all the people wearing weird clothes… referring to myself and the other tourists. I actually thought it would be an interesting idea to have an area where you had to be in period costume to get in, that would be fun. (But then the digital camera would still be a give away!) I tied Luke to a horse post as I explained to him what it was. Seconds later, a carriage came by and the driver called out that Luke was tied where he was going to be shortly! Luke watching the horse and carriage. Mom and Luke…

Luke is Growing Up So Fast!

At the Kidology To Go conference yesterday, as usual, I had people bummed I didn’t bring Luke to the event and then asking to see pictures and videos of him. I realized that I have not made a “Luke Video” since Easter 2006, and when I showed that one on screen during a break, I had to say, “Well, that’s when he was a baby… he’s almost two now.” I’ve posted lots of short videos of him on my blog, but it was time for an update! Since I’m alone this evening and missing my little boy (and Sara too!) I took a walk through iPhoto selecting some of my favorite pictures of Luke – and was amazed at how much he has grown up, just since he turned one, and one and a half…. So here is a video update of Luke from after his birthday to this month… all pictures in order of age, so you can see him growing up… all too fast. Mommy and Lukie: I MISS YOU! I’ll see you soon! UPDATE: Here is a picture of Luke a few days later… watching the video of himself, he loves to watch it!

Two Too Cool Kids Pastors!

Well, I headed up North today to enjoy some fellowship with two awesome children’s pastors. The drive was absolutely beautiful the entire way! The Fall Colors were simply amazing! Of course, it’s hard to capture the beauty while driving, but I tried! In fact, I even made a video, which you can watch below, but both the pictures and video hardly capture the brightness of the colors that I was driving past for nearly two hours… this is simply a gorgeous area of America. The most shocking was when I suddenly had a semi driving the wrong direction RIGHT AT ME!!! YIKES! “You’re Going the Wrong Way!” (name the movie) Fortunately, I was able to swerve around just in time to see that actually, it was being towed in reverse: That’s a serious tow truck! My destination: Jubilee Christian Center for a Kidology To Go on Saturday. This is not my first time here. In fact, I was here last April hangin’ with President Bush who posed with my buddy Todd: Todd and the President! When I arrived I remembered that Todd has a wonderfully decorted and themed children’s ministry and made my way to his office…   I made…

TBT Fan Film: Interview w/ Noah

It’s always fun and strangely encouraging when my ToyBox Tales inspire others to play with their toys for a higher purpose as well! For example, here is a “Tale from the Toys” created by Pastor Jack Henry of Grace Baptist Church in Powder Springs, GA: ENJOY an ‘Interview with Noah” Have you made a ToyBox Tale? Send it to me! I may blog it here and/or post on the fan films area of Toyboxtales.com
