Saturday Nights in Saltillo

Every Saturday night Jose and Anna Correa have charge of youth service for the Saltillo Bible Methodist Church. We asked them if they would come over to our house sometime. Here are some pictures of what we did last night.

Here's the whole crew, minus Steve who was taking the picture. They are all so nice and so much fun!



They enjoyed getting on our computers and checking their email.

Some of them played XBox in Kent's room.

Daisy looks at pictures in Maria's room. We sure miss having Maria here with us.

I always get really scared when people come to our house. So, I had worked myself up into quite a state by Saturday evening. Kent was also a little anxious, and when the carloads began to arrive he started quoting Scripture under his breath, "The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want...Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for Thou are with me." It was hilarious!

You, my dear sister, are alot like me, and might I say, we are both our Mother's daughters. People do not like to be around me when I have people over. Poor Kent... he probably thought he was walking through the valley!!! hahaha I think I have already said this but, I just love the color of your house... it looks so .... Mexican!! :)

Looks like the kids were having a blast...great that you had them over! (Such CUTE young people!) I always think that the anticipation of having someone over IS a bit scary...once they get there...it's usually fun! :) Hilarious that your son quoted that particular scripture!

I am the same way before my company steps through my door! (although, like an above comment, I do believe it looks as if you had everything under control!
I will try to remember to quote Scripture when the next batch of company arrives! Loved it! :-)

Looks like Kent is still the tallest fella around ;) I'm sure you were nervous, but ya'll always have done a fantastic job with young people! Must be because you're young yourselves...at least young at heart!

That's so funny that Kent would quote that verse. I feel that way too when I have people over, so I know exactly how you felt!
Looks like you all did a great job hosting. Those games look like a lot of fun.
