A few weeks ago, we had a "Blessed Talent" night and a wonderful evening of fellowship with Joshua, Hannah, and Lily and the Bender family.  It was great!!

More captivation

Enjoying the delicious pudding that the Harris' brought!

It was a great evening of fellowship

I was a second too late in getting a picture of daddy and Benjamin playing the piano.  When I asked them to pose for me again, this is what I got!!  Ha ha...

All tuckered out

The Benders ended up staying the night!  Here are a couple pictures from the next morning

Hi Shiloh!! How funny!! I got so busy doing captions for the pictures that I forgot to include what I didn't have pictures for! :)

I actually participated in the Bible memory category and recited the book of James.

And...

Mommy did some of her great impromptu poetry for us!!

God bless you all!
