Sooooooo to say the least Hanna was ABSOLUTELY ESTATIC about going to Adventures in Odyssey!!! You shoulda heard all her squealing and was pretty HILARIOUS!!! 
There were OTHERS that weren't quite as ENTRHALLED by it...OooooH WHATEVERRRR we'll make an AIO FAN out of Anali if it kills us!!!

Okaaaaaaaaay the only thing I have ever seen him even some what HYPED up about was the deep sea fishing trip that him and Seth never got to go on! LOL
 Welcoming Joe and Anali to THE IMAGINATION STATION...
Hanna FREAKIN out cuz she is ACTUALLY inside of THE IMAGINATION STATION...
Which is also THE ELEVATOR that leads you to The Whits End ice cream parlor!
My favorite part was how Hanna kept talking about HOW JEALOUS her two brother's were gonna be!!! LOL Only Apostolic siblings talk that way!!! BAHAHA!!! Next year we're bringing you Mesgana!!!

I admit it...

Ahahahaha!!! Okaaaaaaaaaay let me explain!!! When we were at Pacific Coast Camp, Bro. Baglin was telling all these jokes before he preached!!! One of his jokes was about how the Morman church got started. He said that there was a group of woman looking for husbands saying, MORE MEN! MORE MEN! MORE MEN!!! Thus, THE MORMAN church was born from this group of woman!!! BAHAHAHAHA!!!
Then he goes, some of you young ladies here are a bunch of MORMANS!!! When he said this, FOR SOME STRANGE REASON, all the girls in front, behind and next to me felt the urge to nudge or whisper my name! I'm like, REALLY?! We're gonna accuse, THE WONDERFUL COUNSELOR of being a MORMAN???? Like WOW!!!
Ok, ok, okaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, I admit it...
Is a MORMAN!!! ;)
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. That's why i'm still single, I'm WAITING FOR MORE MEN!!! Keepin my options OPEN people!!! Hee, hee!!!

Its arrived in AZ!!!

Okaaaaaaaaaaay soooooo I absolutely LOOOOOOOOVE Ethiopian ice tea!!! I had it for the first time last summer at the Kifle's annnnnnnnnnnd I waited a WHOLE year to have it again this past May when I went out there for Hanna's graduation. Sooooooo for my birthday Hanna brought me an Ethiopian ice tea kit for me to make my own for a while out here!!! At first when she handed it to me on my birthday, I didn't know what it was, I was like;
*You know that Awkward moment when someone gives you something that you don't know what to do with!!! AHAHAHA!!! That's how I was, trying to sound estatic about something that I had NO CLUE what it was!!! LOLOL
Then she was like, its so you can make your own Ethiopian ice tea! (Insert a Mary squeal HERE!) I was like, Oooooooooooo!!!! Soooooooooo today, Hanna showed me how to make it!!! ANNNNNNND it was soooooooooooooo GOOOOOOOD!!!
ARIZONA WILL NEVERRRRR be the same now that I know how to make this!!! I'm gonna make it for my church, parties, EVERYONE MUST TRY THIS STUFF!!! Starbucks AND OPRAH have NOTHING on Ethiopian Ice Tea!!!
Its soooooooo THEBOMB.COM!!!
It just felt sooooooooo weird drinking it HERE in ARIZONA!!! Like I felt like I should be sitting in the Kifle's back yard or on their front steps drinking it! So now every time I drink it I can't help but think of the Kifle's!!!

Everyone was laughing soooo hard when I said that! They were just like, REALLY MARY?!?!?!!?  I'm tellin you all, were IT NOT FOR GRACE...
Hanna was all like, Really Mary, THATS what you would steal, WATER BOTTLES??? I'm like, OH NO, TRUST ME, it would be A LOT MORE THAN JUST WATER BOTTLES!!! Fo REAL people,without JESUS...I can't even imagine where I would be!!!!

You know your teaching African kids WHEN...

When your doing a craft with them that involves RICE, and the kids ask you for a pot of hot water to COOK THE RICE!!!
 Bahahahahaha!!! True story people today at VBS at our church. So Sis. Abbott and I have been going and busing in my kids for VBS...Which adds in a WHOLE NEW DIMENSION to VBS!!! LOL
So anyways, Sis. Alyssa was doing the craft project with the boys, they are I SPY bottles, where you fill a plastic bottle with rice and then you put other random objects in, like keys, marbles, coins, charms, etc...and then when you shake it around you have to try to find the different objects hidden amongst the rice! Well, in the African cooking, specifically the Liberian, Nigerian tribes, RICE IS A MAIN DISH!!!
Well the boys just couldn't understand WHY food was being used for a craft!!! My sis said that the boys were just like FREAKING out, "This is GOOD FOOD!" and one boy was even trying to eat the rice buuuuut ran to the trash can spitting it out! Sooooo anyway, YEAH, all the boys could see was that FOOD WAS BEING WASTED!!!  
Which ACTUALLY sounds like ALL MALES in general...

cRaZy Wednesdays!!!

Soooooooo I knew it was gonna be ANOTHER crazy day yesterday when one of the boys arrived to the van with the lil toy water gun I had given them all as a Fourth Of July present the week before! He gets in squirting kids and I IMMEDIATELY comfiscated it from him...He's like, YOU GAVE IT TO ME!!!
*That AWKWARD moment when your sitting on the front row and one of your kids runs to THE VERY FRONT and does a cartwheel....ANNNNND then his pants fall down!!!
We have GOOOOOOD CHURCH on Wednesdays!!!True story people...  Lil boy in this above pic...he is FINALLY potty trained so he can come...BUUUUUUUUT we still got A LOT to work on!!! BAHAHAHA!!!  
THEN the class was hysterical because one of the lil boy's mom had told Sis. Abbott that he knew his memory verse and that he would say it to the whole class, buuuuuuut when Sis. Abbott asked him, all he would say was STAR WARS!!! The class was HYSTERICAL!!!
Then in it was my turn to teach this week...We FINALLY got the kids settled down enough for me  to ACTUALLY teach, so I start teaching for a MINUTE and I don't know how BUUUUUT SOMEHOW, I tripped just standing there...weeeeeeeeeeelllll the kids just LOST IT!!! All the kids, including my niece were laughing sooooooo hard and one of the boys just fell out of the seat and was rolling on the ground...I like OKAAAAAAAAAAY whateverrrr it wasn't THAT FUNNNNNY!!!
 Soooooooooo I had made all the kids cupcakes and they were just like estatic about them!!! One of the boys was like, WHERE do you get your icing from??? And another one of the boys was like, DUDE, she makes it herself!!! The other boy was like, NO WAY!!! He's like yeah, she EVEN MAKES those brownies she brings us too!!! The boy was like, WOW!!! I felt SOOOO COOL!!! HAHAHA!!!
When we got back to the apartments this lil boy came running over to the van like what did you guys get?! Mary can I have one???? Annnnnnd I usually don't give the kids that didn't come to church that night what I gave the other kids, buuuuut this lil boy wanted to come sooooooo bad but his dad wouldn't let him cuz they are Muslim, soooo I give him one of the cupcakes and HE DROPS IT on the pavement!!! I was like, OH NOOOOOO!!! Buuuuuuuut the boy says its ok, just picks it up, blows it off and starts eating it! I'm like, OH YEAH, 10 second rule...that's MY KIND OF KID!!!
Soooooooo then when we go to drop off the boy that had the water gun, he was pouting cuz I had threatened to talk to his mom cuz he wasn't listening, soooooo he gets out of the van and I roll down the window and I'm like, hey Prince, do you want your water gun back? He's all moping and is like, yeah...soooo get it and proceed to empty it shooting him with it!!! AHAHAHHAHA!!! YES, i'm a crazy bus worker!!!

What the devil CAN'T DO!!!

Question: What can the devil NOT do???
I was thinkin the other day ALL that the devil will do take away someone's testimony. I was thinkin about when people leave church or mess up their lives in the world. I was thinkin about ALL that the devil can do to mess somebody up. The devil can take away our joy and our happiness. He can take away our innocence and purity and corrupt our minds. He can take away our peace of mind and hope for our future... He can take away our morals and ethics and rightousness. He can take it ALL AWAY...and leave us empty and broken...he can do all that...IF you let him...
BUT despite ALL that the devil CAN take from you, there is ONE THING that the devil CAN NEVER take from you!!!! What he can't EVER take away from you, is WHAT GOD HAS ALREADY DONE FOR YOU!!!!
The devil wants to ruin you. He wants to destroy you. He wants make you think that you can't make it. That you've backslid, you've failed God, your turned your back on God so why even bother. Why even keep trying? He wants to take away what God's done for you...BUT he can't. The devil can't ever change what God has ALREADY DONE!!!  
If you have ever obeyed Acts 2:38, repented of your sins, been baptized in Jesus name, YOUR SINS were washed away and the devil can't EVER change that!!! God has already FORGIVEN YOU!!! He has already filled YOU with the HOLY GHOST!!! You may be living a life right now that is away from God, you may need a REFILLING of the Holy Ghost, buuuuuuuut that STILL does NOT change what God already did for you!!! He has ALREADY brought you salvation!!!  He has already redeemed YOU!!! There is NOTHING the devil can never do to change that!!!
 The devil can't take away the fact that Jesus already paid the price for your sin! The devil can't ever change the fact the he who knew NO SIN, became sin so that we could become the righteousness of God! God ALREADY DID IT! The devil can NEVER change that! What it comes down to ultimately is one thing...CALVARY!!! It doesn't matter what you do or what you have done or what anyone says...the devil can NEVER take away CALVARY!!! Jesus has ALREADY died for YOU and there is nothing, nothing, NOTHING the devil can ever do to take that away!!!
Question: What can the devil NOT do???
Answer: He can't change WHAT GOD HAS ALREADY DONE!!!
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

Dieting CMM!!!

Soooo  today at lunch we had a TOTAL Classic Mary (Dieting) Moment!!! Wellllll I've had this thing for the past month that we REALLY NEEDED to go to Humble Pie!!! Its a pizza place that makes their pizza dough out of sourdough. Soooooooooo I talked my sister into going there today!!!
The way it works at Humble Pie is that your basically just order your own personal pizza. So I order mine annnnnnnnnd LIKE A GOOD GIRL, I separated the amount I was going to eat on one plate and put the rest aside and said I would save it for tomorrow. 
THEN I proceeded to shake red pepper flakes on it for TWO REASONS!!! 1. Because I love spicy food! AND 2. because when your food is spicy it makes you fuller faster and you tend to not eat as much. Sooooo i'm shaking the pepper out BUUUUUT its NOT coming out very fast...soooooo I take the cover and take some pepper to sprinkle onto my pizza. 
Weeeeeeelllll i'm just eatin a long annnnnnd decide that I need JUUUUUUUUST a little bit more...sooooooooo I take the pepper and start shaking annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd...
Someone FORGOT to SCREW THE COVER BACK ON THE PEPPER!!! Jus a LIL more pepper turned out to be THE REST OF THE JAR!!! I was laughing soooooooooo HARD!!! My sis and MJ were just shaking their heads in unison at me!!! Buuuuuuuuut the funniest part is when the waiter came over to the table and saw the WHOLE jar of pepper on my pizza!!! He was just aghast!!! it was HILARIOUS!!! Especially when he picked up the empty pepper jar with cheese and sauce drippin off it and carried it back to be refilled...AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
I have to give him credit tho for offering me a new pizza!!! I said no thank you tho cuz I still had more than half set aside ANNNND plus it was NOT their fault!!! I MUST take responsibility for my own STUPIDITY!!! Actually, the HONEST truth is that I just shook off my pizza annnnnd ATE IT!!! I am NOT A WASTEFUL PERSON!!!
I have to say, IT WORKED!!! I got full REALLY FAST!! In FACT I'm STILL FULL FROM SUNDAY LUNCH!!! ACTUALLY, I think I may even be good for THE WHOLE WEEK!!!
