Since my last blog in chronological order... LOL
1st - last weekend we went to a West Africa Mission Conference (we being- Todd, myself, and some other great members from our church) It was a great conference where we were able to gather with others that have a passion for this mission work and also have experience in the field and this culture that we can learn from. We were able to share stories, pray for each other, and gain wisdom. Overall it gave us some great ideas and direction for our work at FBC, strengthened the passion in our heart for West Africa, and was a great time of fellowship. If you would like more information about our Mission Work in West Africa - message me and I will add you to our newsletter!
This week I also worked on some recipes. I am trying to perfect my Chicken and Rice recipe for our banquet, and made some of my favorite chocolate raspberry cupcakes for my mom. I will be posting the recipes under my recipe page soon but here is a little preview...
Another big thing on my TO DO list is finishing the plans for Owen's 1st birthday! I can not believe he is going to be ONE :( He is turning into such a little man. We are planning a LEGO party for him and have lots of fun things on the agenda for his party. Crossing our fingers for nice weather and lots of LEGO fun!!! (I will post lots of pics of the party adventures)
As we ended our week with a busy weekend we accomplished a lot and got to have a lot of fun! We marked off the carpet cleaning from our Spring Cleaning list, added even MORE mulch to our landscaping, and did a lot of laundry. On a fun note we got to see everyone dressed up for prom -
It was like Owen was wondering "Aaron is that you?"
Then to end our weekend we celebrated April Birthday's with Todd's family and even more special Todd's Nanny turning 90!
It has been a great week/weekend and will have many busy ones ahead! Really hoping I will get to blog and keep you updated on our adventures during the craziness to come!
Prayers and Blessings - Dawn
