Raised to walk in newness of life

We had a very busy but wonderful weekend.
I had Friday off and I spent the day leisurly cleaning the house with two visits to Wal-Mart and Sonic mixed in. Scott's parents got to our house around 6:30 and we ate pizza, visited and watched the hogs get beat.
Saturday, Scott's mom and I hit Wal-Mart while Scott gave his dad a tour of where he works. Then we ate lunch and hung around a little. My mom came in town and I took the "two Judys" to some of my favorite Bentonville stores. That night we ate some good BBQ that his parents brought and then we had a mini early birthday party for Scott.
Sunday we went to church early and met my parents there. It was a really great service. They showed a video that Scott filmed of his testimony and then he was baptized. It was pretty emotional to me but I got a laugh as he walked out of the baptistry and our associate pastor (who is a pretty thin man) said "I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me.......he's a big guy!" ha! Scott had been teasing him that he needed to be lifting weights that week prior.
After church we ate lunch at Copelands and then went home to visit some more. Scott's parents left around 2 and my parents went back to their hotel to rest and then met us at church last night. Then we went and had dinner at Chili's and the weekend came to an end. It was good to be with our families!

What a neat photo. I talked to your mom last week when we were in Flippin and she said that they were going the next Sunday to see Scott baptized. For the first time in 3 months I have read blogs and updated ours. I enjoyed reading all your recent posts and catching up! Hope we can both get to Flippin on the same weekend one day!
