Big announcement & a busy weekend

First a big announcement,my hubby and I finally paid off our house!!!We are so happy,it's by no means my dream house,it was just our starter home but we are still here 9 years later and I'm thankful that we have a roof over our head and my family has a warm place to sleep every night.God is so good,even when Joe was out of a job for almost a year,He still provided for us in every way.Joe has been working now since October and we were able to pay off our mortgage this year!To celebrate,Joe took me out to The Cheesecake Factory.I had the cobb salad YUM!! and Joe had

the spicy crispy chicken sandwich.
Friday night my mom came in from Austin and Saturday we took the kids ice skating.I'm kicking myself for not taking any pictures of my mom with the kids but I'll get some next time.
Sunday morning at church we had The Borliks.They're a family who does children's ministry,They are awesome,even the adults get in on the fun.
I think we had about 6 van loads of kids from the neighborhoods around our church.They all had such a good time
Look at how they have have this little guy's attention.The show on Sunday was about peer pressure.
After the morning service,our church provided free pizza and drinks for everyone!
We have 4 teams that do outreach every Saturday,this Saturday will be our turn to go out and invite people to church.It'll be Valentine's Day so I'm hoping to make some goody bags for the all the kids that we meet.
Hope everyone is having a happy Monday!
