OK, I confess - I'm watching the Oscars. Yep, watched the Barbara Walters special too. (And frankly, I was quite happy with Miley Cyrus interview. It made me feel even better about letting my kids be into the whole Hannah Montana deal. "You get the beeeeesssttt of both worlllllddsss...")
I'm really bummed that I wasn't able to go to church, because tonight was our first "Kids and Coffee Night" - where the whole service time is to be geared toward the kids - everything from worship to the message (a.k.a. - the story) as well as craft & snack. The adults were encouraged to get involved with the kids, but since there's really not room for everyone in one room, and some people are less inclined toward hyper-worship and finger paints, there's also coffee and fellowship in the adult room. We're in the process of trying some new things at Koinonia House (you gotta get creative when your pastor is bi-vocational, you don't have your own building, and you have limited adults and tons of kids!) and "Kids & Coffee Night" is one of the new things. So I was anxious to see how it would work...guess I'll have to wait til the fam gets home and I can hear from my kids while sipping my coffee! :)
But as I was saying - I'm watching the Oscars...I'm not sure I ever have actually sat and watched them before! I'm a sucker for fancy dresses and up-dos, so I'm really enjoying it. I keep calling Bets ("Didn't her dress make her look like a mermaid??" "Didn't she look like so-and-so?") because I have no one to chatter with about it all...I tried with Luke, but he just begged and pleaded to watch 'Spy Kids'...so that's where he is now, on my bed.
Anyway, I'm obviously rambling and substituting this computer for a conversation with a friend...so I'll let you go now...
