Kathy and Carrie D-Now2007 - We are crazy sisters in Christ! We are royalty because our Heavenly Father is a KING!!!

D-Now Ball 2007! Here I am with my Prince!
Well our big weekend has arrived! It's so much fun to work with the youth at our Church! We still get to act like big kids!!! I think we get into this stuff as much as the kids! Last year was simply AMAZING!!!!! We are looking so forward to what God has instore for us this weekend! Garet gets to participate, so.. it's a family affair! (Well, not Peyton) The warriors will be playing war on an isolated ranch all weekend and the ladies get pampered like queens all weekend! We will all meet back together for our BALL on Sunday night! As Christians... we are royalty!!! When our life here on earth is over, we get to inherit the kingdom of Christ! Isn't that exciting?
I always tell my girls, "I may not have a mansion here on earth, but my daddy has built me a honkin one in heaven." I WILL have my mansion someday! So... off to be a "Lady of the Court" for the weekend! Can't wait to post pics!

We are back on solid ground!

Bon Voyage!!!!

It was a gorgeous day when we left Galveston, but very foggy when we got away from the shore! Just thought this was a cool pic!

Sushi anyone? We ventured out and tried everything! Sushi, Squid, Escargo!!!!!

Isn't the water amazing?

The girls! This was our favorite place on the ship... the rear! The wind blew atleast 30 mph the whole trip! So the back of the ship was nice and peaceful! We spent alot of time here!

Formal night!

We ate and ate and ate some more!!! Four course meals three times every day! Time to start counting points!

This girl couldn't leave Mexico without getting her hair braided! I told the girls to say "cheese". They said no..."whiskey". Oh my!


Cool lighthouse in Progresso!

Checking out the culture in Progresso! Amazing little city! I love this pic!

Don't ask!!!

Kareoke! Elvis has left the building!


Conga line!!!!!

The whole crew got TATOOS! We may never be allowed to do marriage enrichment again!

Boo - Hoo!! We don't want to go home!!!

Goodbye Mexico! Until next time......
Sorry this post is so long! We had an amazing time! Lots of great memories were made! Lots of food and fellowship! Lots of new friendships! Lots of marraige enrichment! The study we did was fun... Men are like waffles and Women are like Spaghetti! Our Cozumel, beach and snorkeling pics are on an under water camera. I don't have any idea how to blog those! Seeing other parts of the world is amazing! We are so grateful we got to get away! Thanks to those of you who checked on Mom and the kids while I was gone! I so appreciate you and your friendship! Back to reality!!!!

My Theme Song....

My theme song this week is a little song I used to sing in children's church.
Do you remember it?

I cast all of my cares upon you.
I lay all of my burdens down at your feet.
And anytime I don't know what to do...
I will cast all of my cares upon you.

I hadn't heard that little song in years. The other night, the Lord woke me up at 3:00 and I was singing this little song. I felt alittle crazy, but it was comforting to know that my heavenly Father put this song in my heart. I will continue to lean on him every minute, every day.... through all of the drama!

Please pray for my family! I love you!

"Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7
