Men's Breakfast and Sweetheart Supper

Woah, busy but awesome day!  Heath had the monthly Men's Breakfast this morning at 8 am.  He was in charge of the cooking so he made his famous biscuits and gravy.  He was up early working away in the kitchen.  He made the gravy here and put it in a crockpot to transport it to the church where he made fresh, hot biscuits.  This meal was a hit paired with coffee and orange juice.  I know many people had seconds!

I got to go with Heath to the church this morning to start preparing for our evening Sweetheart Supper.  I started sorting out dishes, blowing up balloons, getting out silverware with the help of my mother-in-law.  It was alot of fun!  We just worked away in the kitchen preparing for the evening with worship music playing from my computer.

Once the Men's Breakfast was over, we had Heath and Garry's help moving tables and chairs and putting up decorations and table cloths.  While they were busy doing this, Pastor Jake introduced to me the idea of calligraphy.  He wants to pass along this beautiful form of writing to the younger generations to carry out.  He approached me knowing that I like to take photos and that I send alot of old-fashioned, hand-written cards.  What a neat opportunity he gave me when putting the pens in my hand as a gift!  Thank you Pastor Jake.

Things really started shaping up when the tables and chairs and decorations were ready.  We set the tables with nameplates and individual roses at each couple's seat.  Once we got everything how we wanted it, we made a quick Walmart run for the French bread and salad.  Ready for a little break, we headed home to relax for about an hour before showering and heading back to the church to get the wonderful homemade lasagne in the oven and the salad tossed.  We got ice in the glasses, the garlic bread made, and the nuts and desserts prepared.  Heath did most of the cooking and I did most of the serving.  It worked out really well.

What a wonderful evening!  This event was through the Young Married group at Monument Bible Church.  Heath and I decided to head up this event.  We were able to get all the food arranged, cooked, and served and Mindy and Josh hosted the event.  They did the speaking at the dinner and kept things moving.  They showed some funny marriage video clips, the wedding slideshow we prepared, and created conversation pieces while we served.  (The slideshow had our guests wedding photo and their anniversary date.)  We had a special guest remote in via Skype from Illinois!  Koreen, Heath's cousin, sang and played her guitar for us!

It was a wonderful evening with 15 couples in attendance.  We had a fun photo booth set up to take everyone's picture as well as child care provided.  We thank all involved to make this a relaxing and romantic evening for those in attendance.

Us throughout the day.  You can tell from the fancy picture that this was the last thing of our day!
