Great Friends and Sunday Night Nertz!!!!

I feel so blessed that for about a year now a group of us from our church ( and our MOPS group have gotten together just about every Sunday evening at 8pm to play a crazy fun cards game called NERTZ! Now I know it's a big hit in the midwest but it's new to us here on the east coast. A dear friend and one of our Pastor's wives Jennifer Christensen brought it back to us girls after a visit to Iowa to visit family and their Mops Ladies were playing. It was a huge hit and I can say each of us absolutely LOVE and very much look forward to it each week!!

As awesome as the game is the fellowship is probably the one thing that keeps me and the other mommies coming back for more each week. We have talked about EVERYTHING!! These women have truly become my closest friends and it's been such an encouragement to me! I'm so thankful to these wonderful ladies. Each week we rotate houses basically whom ever is up for having us over and we get together sometimes snack and get to playing! Some nights well most lately we have had enough to split up into 2 different places to play. The one picture of us all is from Pastor Steve and Jenn Christensen's going away party. The ministry has taken them back to Iowa closer to both their families so it has been quite a sad time for all of us. The other picture of us around the cards was last Sunday evening. Some (me) of us in our PJ's which is usually the case. Ha! But seriously these Ladies are such special women of God and I love these ladies dearly!
