Lately we've been having a lot of company over. But it's been so much fun! =)
On the 21st we had the G. family over and we had homemade pizza. Then yesterday we had the O. family over at lunch and we made Italian vegetable casserole for that. Can you tell that our family loves Italian food?!

David Barton says Glenn Beck is a Christian...

Read Brannon Howse's column on this topic, here.  Or listen to Howse's radio show about David Barton and Glenn Beck. 

"Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?"  1 Corinthians 6:14-16a
"But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed."  Galatians 1:8-9

A Visit from Poppy and Grams

This past Saturday night, Mom's parents, Ron and Anna (a.k.a Poppy and Grams) came to our house after a seminar they attended. They left this afternoon, but we think it wasn't long enough! :) Sure, we had tons of dishes to do, but hey, we had fun and we love Poppy and Grams!! I'm posting some photos taken during their stay here. Enjoy!

Sunday lunch,  which was.....

....Hamburgers (from the Local Yocal) and green beans

Grams says, "These hamburgers are real good!"

Caleb about to attack his hamburger

I am enjoying some carrot sticks :)


Jaden tried on Dad's shoes, which (of course) were too big for him! :)

Play Bibleopoly


Jaden-bug, setting the table

Last night we had pizza for supper. Mmm.... :)
