Vintage Video - Erin's Promo Video for Guys Small Groups 2003-4

My buddy Kurian (his first name is Mark but no one calls him that unless they don't know him) and I have been talking about these old videos we made for the Mariners College Ministry back in the day, so I thought I would post a few.He honed his acting skills by watching a lot of movies with Ashley Judd.

I have another video that promoted our Spiritual Gifts class called EMERGE. But it involves Kurian, clad only with a towel around his waist and his head, singing as if he is alone in the house to Carrie Underwood's rendition of ALONE on American Idol. It's priceless but I am hoping to get some bribe money for not showing it.


Autumn Valentine

Grandpa took this all time favorite shot. Well, this week at least.


Scrumptious Autumn...4 months old!

Sweet little Autumn is now over 4 months old...I can't believe how fast time passes. She is always happy, easily entertained and super vocal! I think she's going to be a talker...Her favorite pastime consists of sucking her extremely tasty hands, staring at her hands as they try to grab parrot or giraffey, and grabbing her toes while being changed (as if she is wondering what the heck these things are?) She loves the bumbo....the best invention ever as I am able to clean the kitchen, cook and read while she sits right next to me on the counter. Erin and I cannot help ourselves from smothering her in kisses all day long...she is simply SCRUMPTIOUS right now! We love to call her "munchie girl", "sweetzie", and "pumpkin". She has recently discovered the exersaucer toy where she is able to sit up and grab at really bright and colorful objects in front of her...she is super curious about everything. Her latest accomplishment is rolling over...she learned 2 weeks ago and now loves to roll over the moment she is on her tummy. I love the look on her face once she's rolled over: It's like "hmmm? how did that happen? Strange..." Hope you enjoy the new pics!
