one of the benefits...

ONE of the pluses of being a youth pastor (or just a yp wife) is that i get to tag along (i mean "help") at all the events.

last night i was lucky enough to go to... WINTER JAM

o.my.word was it CROWDED! we walked around, up & down the stairs looking for seats for about 30 minutes... no lie.

finally at the VERY top we found seats... our view: the top of their heads

chad left to meet someone & ended up finding us better seats.

well, some might say they are not better - they were behind the stage but to us & our OLD ears it was not so loud back there.

was that even possible?!?! my ears were ringing by the end of the night!

i got a little tired (it was past my bedtime) so i started taking pictures to stay awake... these pictures make me laugh!

i like music... to sing along. making-up words is what i do best!

i'm not too big on knowing who sings what songs. i am always asking chad who sings this.

last night i was singing along but did not have a clue who it was UNTIL... TOBY MAC!!! huge fan, have been since his dc talk days. anybody know who i'm talking about???

it was an AMAZING show... even though we saw it all from behind!!!

if winter jam comes to your area you need to go... worth the $10 to get in.

How fun! I love Toby Mac...and I still heart DC Talk!

I'm loving that new song by Brandon Heath too...give me your eyes.

It is definitely one of the perks of youth ministry :)

I heard it was a great night. One of the little guys at church told me how he got to meet Toby Mac and show him his cool shoes. Loved your pics. And yes, we are starting to get old right?

Glad you guys had fun! I remember seeing DC Talk when I was in like 9th grade and they did all the coordinated dance moves....so funny!
And Michael makes up lyrics to songs when he doesnt know them too...wonder which parent you inherited that from!
