I want you guys to tell me at least one memory you have about our times in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg w/Bestefar and Mormor. (for nonNorwegian blog readers: Bestefar means Grandpa and Mormor means Grandmother in Norwegian)
Something you would find only in the South...

Since Kevin had off today, we made the most of this beautiful crisp clear Friday! Here we are w/breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains. We rode the chair sky lift to get up here...something I know Mama would have thoroughly enjoyed! :) haha
I will be posting more pictures soon of our day in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

I want to share w/you a part of our family devotion we had today...and will copy just some of what Kevin read to us in our bulletin devotional.
Dependability - Genesis 18:23-33
Why did Abraham stop at ten? A careful study of Lot's family in Sodom indicates that Lot very likely had at least ten family members. Abraham thought for sure that he could depend on Lot to have instructed his family in righteousness. Surely the LORD would find ten righteous, even if He looked no further than Lot's family. Obviously, Abraham was wrong to think he could depend on Lot. Though sin brought God's attention upon Sodom, an undependable Lot sealed its fate.
How would the Bible story of Sodom be different if Lot would have been dependable? How would the fate of others be different if you were dependable?
Daddy's "Food for Thought" question (located at the end of his last Bible answer in "Archive of Bible Answers from Daddy" )
My little answer: Since many of those verses are talking about someone being here before anything was...sounds as if it has to be referring to Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I'm sure someone else can give a much more elaborate answer than me.
Everyone! Daddy has just posted his answer to the latest Bible question...be sure to read it!

Usually once a week, I serve my family fish (hey, we need the brain food!) ...and it's usually either salmon or halibut, our two favorite kinds of fish. Fortunately, everyone in my house LOVES fish...so, that helps. However for anyone who might not particularly care for it, this is a great recipe! You get your needed nutrients that fish provides us, w/out the fishy taste!
We all certainly enjoyed our Salmon Burgers for lunch today! And of course, it's a recipe from Paula Deen. :)

On Sunday, the kids and I tried to build a snowman; however, we just never got anywhere w/our attempts. Then, Kevin joined the kids outside Monday morning...and in about 10 minutes, Allyson called me to come outside and take a look at their snowman! I guess being a Yankee has it's advantages...they sure can make a snowman fast! :)
