Knee deep in 80's...

Well it came and went. Tonight was the big scavenger hunt, 80's themed, late birthday bash for the hubby. Whew! What a night. It was a blast. We had a scavenger hunt in the rain (didn't plan that part, but it added a little excitement.), a birthday cake that was shaped like an old Nintendo (pretty cool), a chocolate fountain (which went over really well), karaoke (my husband's new favorite thing to do!) and about 70 kids there. With the adults, we had almost 100 people.


The cake that a friend made for me. Pretty cool,?


Kevin and I. My hair started out big, but this picture was taken towards the end of the night and I can't make myself use a whole can of hairspray like I use to. Oh, well. Amb I had to wear the Dirty Dancing shirt because the Air Supply one didn't fit.


Kev with a few of our 80's girls. He looks like he is about to kill the cake...

Overall it was a great night. I am bone weary tired from being on my feet all day, but it was totally worth it. Second to kids learning about Jesus, parties like tonight is what makes student ministry a joy.

I am blessed...
