11 Mar 2004 - PURIM - At Beit Yeshua
 
The Biblical Festival of Purim is mentioned in the book of Esther and tells the story of how GOD used Queen Esther to save her people the Jews from the evil Haman - an Agagite. Beit Yeshua celebrates the festival each year and there is usually a parody comedic play that tells the story. People usually wear costumes during this festival. The 2004 play was a parody entitled, "Here's Looking at You, Esther".

TREASURE HUNT
 
We made it a little more difficult for Beth and Philip. Carolyn and Curtis always loved doing things a little differently, so for 2004, Beth and Philip had to go on a treasure hunt to find their Christmas presents.
 
BETH

  

As Beth reads the first clue with a smile, she realizes she's gonna have to do a little work
 
Nonni's written clues didn't make it easy - but they did make it fun
 
Looking in a vase, under an elephant statue, or even in a DVD, the clues led her on and on
 
On and on to the last clue ...
 
 
... and finally the money - hidden in a DVD
 
PHILIP
 
Just like Beth, Philip smiles as he reads the first clue
 
Brad takes photos while Curtis does a video of the treasure hunt

  

 
In a DVD case, a photo album and under the leopard
 
Finally to the Batman DVD - one of Philip's favorites when he was younger

30 Dec 2004 - Car Accident
 
Beth, Savanna and Alexandria were in a car accident on 30 Dec 2004 when another car hit them. Of the three, Beth was the one with the most severe bruises and cuts. Fortunately, none of them were seriously hurt.  Thank the LORD!
 
Brad attributed the lack of serious injuries to the sturdiness of their Volvo Wagon
 
Beth's injuries to her lip, cheek and eye were more than likely from the steering wheel because the
airbag did not deploy.   Savanna and Alexandria's injuries were caused by their seatbelts.

DEDICATION

 
 
Ali, I love you so very much.  Every photo that I've added to this page made me smile - and reminded me just how special you are.  You're kind, sweet and gentle.  May you always follow after the ways of the LORD and may you grow up to serve Yeshua/Jesus with zeal and passion.  Only "true" happiness comes from Him.  Love you, Poppi.
