Veggie Tales Live: God Made You Special


I had been looking forward to this past weekend for over a month now. We took Madison to see Veggie Tales Live at our church. I absolutely love Veggie Tales and was so excited for Madison to see them! We lucked out and when I went to buy tickets there were two front row seats still available and so we were right in all of the action. Madison had a blast at the show and really enjoyed the music. It was a much longer show than I had thought (there was intermission and everything) so there were some points where Madison was a little squirmy, but the show accounted for that. For most of the second half of the show, the kids were able to go up front and dance and just be kids. :) This show was really neat. It focused on how we are all special and unique in God's eyes and that we shouldn't try to be like everyone else. Cute show, Great Message, Awesome weekend!









Alex and I also decided to adopt a little girl through World Vision while we were there. She is 5 years old and from the country of Myanmar. We are very excited to get to know her and write her letters and send her little gifts. I have wanted to do this for some time now and Alex recently mentioned to me that he'd like to do the same thing, so it was perfect that World Vision had a little table set up during intermission at the show! If adopting a child is something that interests you, World Vision is an amazing organization, 87% of their proceeds go to helping the children.

Hey Steph, cute post! Do you use Picasa? Its a picture organizer, I use it to store all my pictures and it has a collage feature that is super easy to use. If you don't use it you can check it out at www.picasa.com.

Gotta love the Veggie Tales! Awesome that you're sponsoring a child through World Vision. Check out Compassion too. I actually like them even more, they have more contact between the child and you, and are a little better fiscally.

Travis and I have been sponsoring children through each since high school, and we just love it!
