SLEEEEDDDDING!



Heres a concept...get an object, it could even be a cookie sheet as Tim proved to us, sit on the top of an icy hill and HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE! Who woulda thunk it to be so easy to have sooooo much fun!

This was quite possibly the best sledding trip VWO Youth Groups have ever seen! We loaded into not one, not two, but three vans (thats a whole lotta people) and headed into the unknown depths of the great Woodland Park! We hit up two sledding spots - both were super duperly fun, and we zoomed down hills at frightfully fast speeds.

Memorable highlights:

- Blake climbing up the REALLY big hill with lots of trees that God didn't really intend for sledding and then blazed down the dirt/snow filled hill inevitably hitting a tree. ouch.

- Robert saved annabelle's life. no joke. a sled with a hefty person went zooming down the icy slope both the rider and annabelle not paying much attention. Everyone screamed "Annabelle" and in the knick of time robert ran in grabbed her jacket and became a real life hero.

- Little Josh through the hamster. that was sad.

- Numerous poor folk were white washed to their end.

- At the end everyone decided to make a line grab hands....3 2 1 take off... see video!

If you didn't go you should have! If you did...you know why!

Christmas Party

The Christmas party on Saturday night was a fun time of food, games, and hanging out with friends. The night started with food, then we had a relay race, then a toilet paper snow man contest, and a gingerbread house contest. To end the night, we revealed our Secret Santas and opened presents. It was a nice evening.


Wow! Look at all of those presents!

Fun thing of the week

Alright guy's this is what you have to do. below are a few quotes, you have to guess what Christmas movie they are from without cheating this means no asking other people or looking online!

whoever is the first to do it by monday night 5:30 P.M. wins! ( and gets a prize!)

#1 "This little green one here seems to need a home."I don't care. We'll decorate it and it'll be just right for our play. Besides, I think it needs me."

#2 "You stink. You smell like beef and cheese! You don't smell like Santa. "

#3 "Kids are scared of the dark. You're afraid of the dark, too, Marv"

#4 " I must stop Christmas from coming... but how? I MEAN - in what way? "

#5 "You'll never fit in! Now you come to elf practice, learn how to wiggle your ears, chuckle warmly, go hee-hee and ho-ho, and important stuff like that. A dentist! Good grief!" I think it's a handsome nose. Much better than that false one you were wearing."

#6 "Come in! Come in, and know me better, man!"

Alright good luck and NO CHEATING!

This Week

With Christmas less than two weeks away, the kids' play and "Major Dailey's Christmas Homecoming" behind us, there's not much planned for the youth this week. On Friday, there is Bible Study at Tyler and Shaunna's house, at 7pm, and this Saturday is the youth Christmas party, at 6pm. BE THERE! Those participating in the Secret Santa are exchanging their last gifts at the party, so DO NOT FORGET!!! And if you have yet to deliver any more presents to your Secret Santa before Saturday, get that done this Wednesday at church, 7pm.

Haha G.O. and Jeremy before the play on Saturday night.
