twinkle toes and tinkerbell

it was officially announced last night that hines ward will be dancing with the stars on the next season.  this wasn't my favorite bit of news, to be honest.  i'd rather the steelers just put every ounce of their energy - every moment of every day - focusing on getting back to the superbowl and winning.  this is the kind of thing that i want other players to do, so that they aren't focused.  still, i hope he does great, as i can't root against hines in anything.  he's already got some sweet moves:

it's march 1st, baby!  woohoo!  in like a lion?  maybe a lazy lion who doesn't feel like moving towards spring but would rather just lay there continually hitting the snooze button.  yesterday was in the fifties, but we'll be experiencing high temps in the low 30's on thursday.  i can't tell you how much i'm ready for warmer weather.  and baseball.

last night cade was telling us who his friends are in school.  he was saying that he doesn't like one boy because he hits him.  and he doesn't like another boy because he throws up.  there are several kids that he "loves" though, including one tinkerbell.  actually, her name is mirabelle, but apparently cade thinks her name is tinkerbell.  awesome.

i spent a good part of yesterday finalizing my plans for lent, including the themes of all the wednesday night services i'll be doing.  i get so inspired thinking about this liturgical season, that i feel like i want to make a collage for each week of lent, just like last year.  i think i might just do it. 

we had a great weekend with some friends from new jersey who visited us, and we haven't laughed so hard in awhile.  holy shish-ka-bob!

charlie sheen is insane.  i mean, completely insane.  i feel like he has become emblematic of one of the logical ending points of our culture.  it makes me very sad.

and so as not to end on a depressing note, see if any caption comes to mind for this particular photo:

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
