Sooo, Matthew and Granny had to make our first stop of the season on our way home from school. He ordered a cookie dough twister, their version of a blizzard, and just as good.
He was anxious to dig in, but agreed to share a little with Granny.
However, I was not allowed to eat any cookie dough pieces, which he carefully scooted to his side of the cup.
I had to take these pictures with my phone, since he would also not allow me to take my camera into the restaurant. (Who's in charge here, anyway?) I had trouble getting a good shot with the phone since there is a little delay between the snap and the capture. That explains the cheesy smile since he had to stay that way a little to long. Or should I call it an ice creamy smile?
Even with snow on the ground, Stagg's was definitely the place to be after school. It was soon full of teenagers hanging out and enjoying some after school sweets. We'll be baaaaaack!

After a quick dinner at Logan's to watch Purdue squeak one out over Illinois, and a little time getting lost in Fort Wayne, we made it to the concert just a few minutes late. It was actually a blessing, because they allowed us to sit in the lower level artists' circle where there were still some available seats.
Selah includes Allan Hall, Amy Perry, and Todd Smith. Their powerful music, shared from the heart, is both a blessing and an inspiration. If you are listening to the music on my blog, the first two songs right now are by Selah. You can learn more about their group, their story, and their music here.One of my favorite Selah songs is their arrangement of "You Raise Me Up." So powerful. My other favorite is "One Thing I Know." It just speaks to me of God's great love for us. He will never leave us alone. Never.
So I thank God for the mountains, and I thank Him for the valleys,
And I thank him for the storms He's brought me through
Cause if I never had a problem, I wouldn't know that He could solve
I wouldn't know what faith in His Word could do.
