Burnt Chocolate

I love Pintrest!  So I decided that the girls and I would try something I pined.

How hard could it be!  Pretzels, Heresy Kisses and M&M's!  

It didn't work.  I know my track record.... but really!

It's melting Chocolate people!

Leave it to me.... I don't know why I even bother.

The chocolate crumbled and the M&Ms did not stick in the chocolate.  So I had to google why.  I guess the oven was to warm and it burned it.  Nice...... really nice.  lol  I followed the recipe,  I promise I did.  I am going to try it again, but next time I'm trying a different temperature.

We've Moved!

We've moved!  Well, not Paul and I but our church!

I've been MIA for two months!  I'm soooo sorry.  
Time is precious and it's been hard to squeeze you in blog!

Faith Family has left the YMCA and is now in the neighboring town of Corunna at the Community Center!  We've had to redo the whole stage!  It's been a big job... but the Lord provide the funds for lighting and sound!  

We now have a band!  Yippee!  We no longer sing to CDs!  I know big deal right!

Paul and I are so honored that the Lord is using us to reach the families of your community!

Christmas has come and gone!

Christmas has come and gone but good thing for the Dietzel is we celebrate Jesus all year long!  

Christmas this year was spent at Mom like usual :D  This year being a Sunday Christmas the YMCA was closed so Faith Family did not have service.  However we got to go to church with my dad and mom which was nice.

  •  Most of you know by now how the we do our Christmas... 3 gifts.  
  • Something you Want
  • Something you Need 
  • and a Surprise!
In Lillies Surprise Box was an American Girl 
and in Autumns Want Box was a Basic Singer Sewing machine

  These were some fun aprons I got for my family :D  Why?  becasue I'm weird!

I tryed this new recipe for homemade eggrolls.... I turned out surprisingly.  You know with my cooking record that is nothing short of a miricle!

 So there you have it, Merry Christmas from the Dietzel Family!

Parade of Lights

I'm sure everyone is busy during the Christmas season, not just the Dietzels.

We just finished up two CHRISTMAS Parade of Lights.  This first one was in Owosso.  Our church walked the parade handing out 500 glow necklaces.   It was a perfect 50 degrees in Michigan this evening.  Never in a million years will we have it this good again.  It was awesome.  

Here's some of the Gang!  I LOVE my Church!

This here was the Corunna Parade of Light.  It was one week later and the temp was a freezing 21 degrees!  brrrr... we handed out 500 candy canes.

Did I mention I LOVE my Church!

Also last week I had surgery on my neck.  I had a thyroglossal duct cyst remeoved.

It was no biggie really in and out in a day.  My mom came and saved the day.  Paul wonders if i can have surgery once a month so mom will come down.   I agree.  I was nice to have her here. 

So yesterday I was lucky enough to have those ugly hairs removed from my chin (stitches) Sorry I didn't have time to take photo.  The scar is in a great spot where you won't seen it and next month I'll be able to start putting on the cream to help heal the scar :D

Paul and I just got back from IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions)
 which was held in Orlando, Florida.
This expo is 9 miles long if you walk every isle with over 2,500 vendors! Talk about sore feet!

This inflatable was ONLY $30,000!!! It weighed 1,500 pounds
Obviously we did not buy it!

I'd say that 80% of the expo is hands on.  I tried everything I could.  It was like I was a kid again.  I even tried this high ropes course.  AWESOME!!!

Here you can try every kind of carny food you can buy at the carnival!  We tried it all times 3 because we were there for 3 days!  It took us two whole days just to walk the entire expo.

This was the worlds Largest ipad.

These are those Hurricane machines that you find at the mall.  Crazy fun but not worth my $$$  Good thing I didn't have to pay!

There was free Icee's, Dipn Dots, Pizza, Cotton Candy, Coke, Egg Rolls, Funnel Cakes, Ice Cream.... oh man my pants were starting to get a little snug!

 Free things to do like making yourself in to bobble heads!

This is the Floor layout of the expo.

Free Glitter Tattoos!  Oh the fun, oh the food, oh the money we could spend if money grew on trees!  This expo has high rollers.  People were there buying rollor coasters, water parks, 5D theaters, Concessions all the way down to a simple garbage can!  It was great fun with husband trying all these new things.  It lets us see what is the latest and great in the world of entertainment and allows us to dream big!

100 Bible Verses

I feel that the Lord has been telling me to memories more scripture.  This is super hard.  Memorizing spelling words was painful for me and my mom!  lol  
ME + MEMORIZE =  no good!

Finally tonight I'm doing it!  I've had this book since the beginning of summer so...
"the time has come... the time is now" - Dr. Seuss 
Marvin K Mooney will you Please Go NOW!
Jessica Marie Dietzel you need to Memorize NOW!

So here our families goes...  One verse a week, staring this week.  Genesis 1:1 is the first one in the book.  Which makes total since.  I think I got this one down! lol  I'm anxious to see how the girls do.  Paul of couse can memorize by looking at something once.  Totally not fair!

 I'm trying 5 cards in strategic places.... 1st the TV

 ...bathroom sink

 ...girls bedroom door

 ... refrigerator

...  and the computer

Here's to hiding HIS Word in our hearts that we might not sin against God.

Help me Jesus.

Happy Fall

I must say I'm enjoying the cooler weather here in Michigan.  Although I know that it means snow is approaching fast!  That I'm not to excited about.  The girls are... us old people are not!

This year we pick our own pumpkins at our property.  We have 3 1/3 arces, But don't live there however it is just around the corner from us.  We allow a friend who owns a landscaping business to dump his grass clipping there.  One day last month Paul went to see how things were looking over there and to our surprise we had a pumpkin patch.  We got about a dozen pumpkins out of it.  What a pleasant surprise.  This year Autumn carved her own pumpkin with her own knife.  She was very proud.

Happy Fall Everyone!  Only 61 days until Christmas!

The East Coast

Paul and I have been alone these past few days.   We've have programs over here on the cost in Maryland and Deleware, we will have been gone 10 day when we get back home.  Paul and I have enjoyed every moment away... truly enjoying the coast.  Our first stop was in Pasadena Maryland for a 3 day family crusade.  We opted to visit Annapolis. (thanks to google images you can see exaclty where even been.  Although in person its much better!) We've only been here once.  We thought of going to DC to the Zoo, but we've done DC so many times we decided against it. I know.. Boo Hoo! 

We walked this very road and the shops were quaint and cute :D I picked up a few Christmas presents.

Saturday we drove to Frankfort Delaware for our next 4 day family program.  Sunday after the morning service we went about 20 miles down the coast to Ocean City, Maryland.

We love it here!  I love the ocean!   The condoes are stacked on top of each other here.  I can not imagine being here durning the busy season!

 We walked right under this arch way.

Thank you google images... the beach was not nearly as crowed.  It was perfect. 

Today we went north up the coast the Rehobeth Beach.  This is a much smaller town with great shops and yummy cup cakes!

Tomorrow Paul and I are going to this beach.  The church we are doing programs for this week put us up in a condow a few block from Bethany Beach.  This is were you will find us in the morning... hopfully we will be seeing some dolpins.  

It's been a great time away together, but we are both ready to go home and see our girls.

Happy 2nd Birthday Faith Family

Hello Blogger Firends.  If you're still there.... I have no idea if anyone out there is still reading this blog.  

This past week marked our 2 years with our Faith Family.  I truly can't believe that it has been than long, time flies!  These photos were taken by someone at our church, he hasn't given them all to me yet but I do have some to share..... enjoy!

We were hoping to have 200 on this special day.   We had 189, we are not complaining one bit!   After Church we had a picnic and some favorite church people of mine from the Freedom Center (where se spent a year on staff at) came to help.  While in service that crew came to cookour dinner and set up everything.  I didn't have to do much of anyting but purchase the food.  I appreciate them soooo much.  They have no idea what a blessing they are to Paul and I.
