Youth Ministry is VERY serious business, you guys....

Tonight at youth group we played "Steal the Bacon".
The teens were split into two groups.
Each person in each group was given a number. 
Starting at 1 up to however many people were in the group.
Items were placed in the middle of the two groups.

Each item had varying point values:
A baby doll: 15 points. 
(Later, "The baby doll's arm" was also in its own category worth points. Ha.)
A diaper: 10 points
A pillow: 3 points
Black Tube: 1 point
Ball: 5 points.
Joshua: 25 points

When Josh called out a number (or two or three) the people who were given that number ran to the middle and tried to retrieve as many objects as they could in an effort to earn as many points as they could. They had to be ready to dive into the center at all times to pillage as many items as they could.  

Like a bunch of little vikings.

Team Two

The Battle for Points: Advantage Team One!

The Battle for Points: Advantage Team Two! (Team one came around and won this one, actually)

Joshua sacrificing himself for 25 points with extreme reservations.

The final battle for points: My husband.

I was laughing hysterically at this point, and I think Josh has a few rug burns to show off, but it was a great game with the teens!  

P.S. Just a little update, the url of my blog is going to change in the next month or so. Our plans to go overseas require that our full names aren't on things like our email, blogs, and maybe even facebook.  So, that being said, my current URL doesn't exactly meet that criteria.  So, unless someone steals the blog address "" in the next few weeks, that is what I will be changing mine to. Keep an eye out for it!

  1. Leslie, thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog! I don't know about you and Em, but I could really go for some nutella crepes and chai tea sometime in the near future :) I loved this post. I laughed out loud when I got to the picture of Josh being tugged in all directions. Haha! And, I've been reading through the archives of Leslie Ludy's blog that you sent me. I'm really enjoying her perspective, so thank you for passing that along. :)

    Love, Cort
