Jesus Camp

We both really like documentaries. We don't watch enough of them, so if any of you readers have suggestions, please tell.

One that we recently watched was Jesus Camp . It was indeed quite interesting, but also very disturbing at the same time. It follows a Pentecostal children's minister as she leads a group of young kids at a summer Bible camp. I'm not sure what the pastor's true heart is, but her methods of teaching her students about Jesus and His love is pretty absurd and quite political. These young children become very confused as they are repeatedly told how sinful they are and that they need to repent. Keep in mind, most of the kids in this documentary are around ten years old. Furthermore, they were told how sinful the government is but that George Bush is pretty much perfect. At one point, the church brings out a cut-out of the President and pray over him. I wonder if they did that for President Clinton. The directors emphasized how powerful the conservative religious right can be. Hopefully, viewers of this movie will understand that not all religious conservatives or Pentecostals are the same.

Weekend Bliss!

Here we are in a winter wonderland!
Michelle & Michael on our walk!

For Thanksgiving we went up the Northern Wisconsin with the Blomgren's and had a great feast (thanks to Karen) and enjoyed each others company!
Last weekend David & I went up North, near Cross Lake, MN with Michael & Michelle.  We had a really great time bonding with them!  We played lots of games, read, talked and ate!  We were snowed in on Saturday and se we snuggled up in the cabin and played more games!
On Sunday when we got home we went to the Wild Hockey game.  We cheered them on with Aaron, Keith & Kristin!
Here are some fun pictures from all the events!

Environmentally Friendly?

So... you might all think I'm a total weirdo but I'll share anyway! David and I have been talking a lot since this past summer about going green (thanks to Loralee's encouragement!). I've been brainstorming ways to ease into this idea and to do things that really wouldn't make our lives too difficult. Now, I know that's terrible but it's the truth as of now so that's the way it is!

Now, here's the weird thing. I've been thinking about and researching using cloth diapers for whenever it is we end up having kids! It has fun researching diapers :-) What I found were some really great resources on cloth diapers, and let me tell you mature mothers, cloth diapers have come a long way! They now come in fleece and have snaps and you reuse the fleece part and simply wash the insert where the dirty stuff goes!

Today, on my lunch break, I found these awesome diapers! gDiapers are fashionable and environmentally friendly. These also have inserts that you stuff in the liner and once the insert is soiled you can flush it, throw it in the garbage or put it in your garden and it will disintegrate since it's biodegatable! How cool is that? They come in super cute colors and are free from any plastics which is why it's so great. Watch this video for a look at the disintegration process!

What do you think!? Any feedback?
