Business is Business

(received in an email)

One day at kindergarten a Teacher said to the class of
5-year-olds, "I'll give $10 to the child who can tell me who was the most famous man who ever lived." A little Irish boy put his hand up and said, "It was
St.Patrick." The Teacher said, "Sorry Sean, that's not correct." Then a little Scottish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St. Andrew." The Teacher replied, "I'm sorry, Hamish, that's not right either."
Finally, a little Jewish boy raised his hand and said, "It was Jesus Christ." The teacher said, "That's absolutely right, Marvin. Come up here and I'll give you the $10."
As the Teacher was giving Marvin his money, she said, "You know, Marvin, since you're Jewish, I was very surprised you said 'Jesus Christ'."
Marvin replied, "Yeah. In my heart, I knew it was Moses, but " business is business".

Facing Fears

So last night I decided to accomplish something that I've never done before...

I went into the attic at church!

It was very scary- mock me if you like, but it was a terrifying experience. (I was moving all of the Easter Eggs into the church attic for storage). The entire time I continually said to myself, "I climbed a mountain, I can be in the attic."

Strange how our mind plays tricks on us. The entire time I was paranoid that I would come crashing through the floor. Every step I took I tried to make sure that I was holding onto something. I am also petrified of the hole where the ladder comes up. That is probably the weirdest fear of all. It's as though I'm afraid no matter where I am in the attic I will some how fall, and manage to catapult down the attic ladder to the hard floor below.

Needless to say, I thought about posting more pictures of how the attic looked inside, BUT I didn't want to have to go back INTO the attic. I had enough of facing fears for one night.

There is nothing like spring...

I love walking out my doorstep, closing my eyes, and feeling...

Wet snow smacking me in the face.

How WILD is this weather!

Moving Day, Easter Eggs and More...

I moved. Finally. It was quite the process, but it is done. I am still recovering, but I love my new place.

Pictures of the move:
Pics of my downstairs:

Once my room is finished (it should be soon, I'll add those out here. I'm in need of a little bit more decorations, but that will happen eventually. .

On Saturday we had the Easter Egg hunt- It was snowing! I have never hunted for eggs in the snow before, but it was fun. We almost had 200 people come out for eggs, puppets, hot dogs and lemonade!

Other news -best described with pictures:

On the Beach-

Sand angels (no those feet aren't mine)

What has Stephanie been doing?

Hi everyone-

Here's a quick update on my life (prepare to be amazed).

This past weekend I moved back to the "VVA" as my friend and I call it. There is a pool- and a great place to walk. That causes me to be very excited. My room is now pretty much in place, except for some additional books that I need to bring up from my downstairs living area- which is NOT in place at all. Hopefully I'll get that tackled by the weekend. (I'll get pictures once it's decent)

Saturday is my church's annual Easter Egg Hunt. I am very excited about it. There are over 10,000 eggs, hot dogs and lemonade. So, it should be fun.

Next week (6 days and counting) I'm going to see my friends in Nebraska--YAY! That will be so fun!

I also have our Junior Bible Quiz State competition a week after that. For those of you that really know me, you should know that once a Bible Quiz geek, always a Bible Quiz geek. I can't seem to get away from it. It's been fun hanging out with the kids and getting to know them.

After that, hopefully things should return to normal for me. (I don't really know what normal is---I suppose it'll be more of me being my homebody self that I am).

Other than that, and getting over this cold, nothin' much else going on.

Love ya!
