San Antonio, TX – CWVFF

Mar
24

The 1st annual Christian Worldview Film Festival was held this March in San Antonio, TX. John-Clay was one of the 33 speakers at the guild and he had a part in 5 of the films that were entered. So, with that brief history, our family drove the 7hrs down for the closing ceremonies and presentation of the awards last Saturday! Our family has been pretty scattered this month so we were excited to be all together and take a trip for the weekend!

We got to meet lots of great people John-Clay has worked with this past year and see some familiar faces again too!

Sunday morning before we headed home, our good friend and host while we were in TX, treated us to a delicious breakfast at IHOP.

We had a great time! It was neat to go and be able to support John-Clay and see the impact God has given him on so many lives in the filmmaking world!

We went to Okmulgee again this year for our traditional family camping trip. We were so glad everyone got to come and be there! We had a total of 5 tents and 6 vehicles. So here’s lots of pictures from the trip for ya…DSC_0017
“How do we put this tent up?” 1 tent up, 4 more to go.

Benj brought along his blow-up boat and took some pretty exciting trips out in the lake! Let’s just say the wind really picked up and wasn’t blowing towards shore like normal. =/

Maggie was excited to be there but didn’t get to do alot because of having mono. She is a trooper!

We took the games to the tent so we the cards wouldn’t blow away. =) The wind blew so hard that the lake was white-capping 3 days in a row. =)

The crisp fall mornings really get us itchin’ to go deer hunting!! You can just feel it, and smell it in the air. Carinna worked hard to get two places cleared for food plots! This is a view from one of the tree stands.

We’ve been checking the trail cameras and getting some really interesting and exciting pictures!

Awwww.

We’ve got two crazy deer with only half racks! Each on the opposite side. It’s strange.

SUNP0053
Well, hello there! Hope you’re still around in a couple years. =)

Oh, we also get people once in a while too =D

This was Carinna’s last year to hunt during youth season so she really wanted to get something. And much to her delight she got a doe! Maggie would be hunting too, but she’s laid up on the couch with mono! =(

Cutting up lots of meat!DSC_0195DSC_0194

For the first time we attempted making summer sausage! Carinna did a wonderful job! It. Is. DELICIOUS! She’s a pro. but the recipe’s top secret, sorry. You’ll just have to come visit us so you can taste some. =D
DSC_0198DSC_0205DSC_0216

It’s complete with a cracker, mustard, cheese and pickles! She also made some amazing jerky. We change the flavors up a little every year and this is some of the best!

While this is just the beginning of deer season, Abbie and Carinna are just now getting over the poison ivy they got while picking possum grapes! Poor girls, they’ve been miserable.

Here’s some random pictures of Carinna and I posing for some B-Roll John-Clay was filming for a documentary. Sometimes, it’s hard to be serious. =)Screen Shot 2013-10-15 at 12.29.11 AMScreen Shot 2013-10-15 at 12.29.30 AM

Grandma is making a butterfly quilt for each of her granddaughters! So we were all busy sewing on the hankies. You get some really pretty hankies and fold them to look like butterflies, then hand embroidery around it and embroidery a head and antennas! Sorry I don’t have a picture of a finished one.DSC_0074

And last but not least… John-Clay is in Haiti for a film project! We all wish we could be there too, but as you can tell he’s having a really good time! Keep him in your prayers!

Until next time…

Ps. 91:1-4    "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.”
