MARCH 2004

 

11 Mar 2004 - PURIM - At Beit Yeshua, Lincolnton, NC
 
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".

In 2001, Curtis asked Greg Lilge to help co-lead a home-group in the Lincolnton area, through Covenant Bible Church.

26 Jun 2004 - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
 

The Loftin and Seese families (Curtis, Carolyn, Philip, Leslie, Brad, Beth, Savanna and Alexandria) love the opportunities they have to get away to the beach together.

Curtis has been a LOST IN SPACE fan ever since the show first aired on TV in the fall of 1965. Curtis was 12 years old at the time. It was LOST IN SPACE that prompted him to be a life-long science-fiction fan. As a typical sci-fi fan, Curtis collected toys, models and even a few costumes. On 25 Sep 2004, Curtis asked Beth to put on the LOST IN SPACE costume and let him take some photos.

 
 
 
 

  

 

  

Curtis got this LOST IN SPACE photo from 20th Century Fox in 1966

TREASURE HUNT
 
We made it a little more difficult for Beth and Philip. Carolyn and 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

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
