Sunday Afternoon At The Wagners...

Cody Melot, Crystal Schmidt, Christopher Fine, and Kari Jorgenson came over for dinner today.

I wanted to get a picture of the food on the table.

On the menu was spaghetti, salad, and home made Italian bread. Crystal brought pineapple and raspberries. Then for dessert it was Apricot Lattice Cake and coffee and tea. Kari was in the kitchen helping Yvonne today.

Cody challenged me to a game of chess. Now, you have to realize, I haven't played chess in over thirteen years! But was a good game. Cody almost let me win...NOT! He pounced on my queen the first chance he got after a move I didn't see. :(  After that it was all down hill. Yea, Cody won!

You see, this was early in the game.
I think Cody knew he was going to win!

The Winning Move!

Awesome New Group Tonight!

We had five sailors here tonight for our Saturday game night. Four of them were new! Crystal Schmidt brought three friends from the USS Ross (DDG71) with her tonight: Kari, Justin, and Christopher! And Yvonne has been in touch with a Navy mom on Navyformoms.com who got us connected with her son, Cody, from the USS Iwo Jima.

We ate hot dogs and chips, and Klondike bars for dessert.

Then we sat around and shared stories, getting to know each other. Finally, it was time to play! Yvonne brought out the Skip Bo cards...Cody won the first round...beginners luck! Yvonne won the second round.

We ended the evening in the living room, sharing prayer requests and praying for each other.

Rick Matheny Brings His Family Over On Saturday Night

Group shot 1

Group shot 2
Yesterday Rick Matheny brought his parents, Tim and Elizabeth, and his girl friend Kristina, over to the house to meet us and to join in our Saturday night activities. Rick is going on deployment so it gave us a chance to anoint him with oil and pray over him; that God would keep him safe, and enable him to do his job well.

Wednesday is also his birthday, so we were able to celebrate together a couple of days early. Rick likes cheese cake so Yvonne made one for dessert. she went out and got a small birthday gift for him: a journal, so he can keep track of the events of his first deployment.

Crystal joined us too; and brought frozen yogurt. As I always say, there's always room for ice cream! :)

Dinner included grilled hamburgers and baked home fries. then we played "Apples to Apples" which is Crystal's all time favorite game! Elizabeth, Rick's mom won the game, and the trophy!

Presenting the trophy  to the winner!
