Harvest Carnival




Tonight was the Harvest Carnival outreach at Northside. It went really awesome! I personally did the registration table, and the women's ministries did the cotton candy booth. We had everything from moon bounces to a dunk tank, a cake walk, a hayride, absolute TONS of candy and much more.

This afternoon while I was sitting at my desk working, Larry calls me on the phone and says, "come out to the parking lot - we just got this moon bounce hooked up." (He knows, I love them.) So I came out and although I was dressed for work as I usually am - in a dress, I hopped in anyway and started to go crazy. Everything was fine until my slip fell down. (I was wearing a half slip and it's gotten kinda loose with losing more weight.) Cathy laughed so hard. I was trying to gracefully pull it back up without lifting up my dress but the thing is, it was difficult to accomplish and the guys were outside. I finally got it back up without showing anything that shouldn't be shown in public. Moments later after finally getting the slip back up, Dustin hopped in the thing with me (he works at NS with us, remember?) and he starts jumping away and knocking me every which way but loose.

It was a busy and a fun day. I'm working double hard this week and next Mon-Wed trying to do next week's work as well (that I would do if I was here) but won't be able to do because I'll be in Africa.

Something really significant happened today! I can't blog about it in detail yet because I'm still praying about it and Larry and I are figuring things out, but I just got a really interesting offer today and I'm seriously considering it. God works in mysterious ways.

By the way, at WW weigh in today I lost 1/2 pound. Yippee-aye-aye! Now that's something to jump about...

Congrats on the weight loss. Just curious, did you get rid of the slip or keep it?
