Friday Night Bunco

I was invited to be a sub for Bunco last night. I have never played Bunco and thought Bunco was only for the cool and sophisticated people. I was so excited my friend Terri asked me to be a sub. I got to visit with some gals I don't always get to just sit and talk with at church. It was so much fun and lots of laugh. I even won a prize at the end! Not because of my skill. My name was drawn!!! I hope I can be a sub again sometime. Some of the gals laughed at the way I picked up the dice! I used both hands when everyone else seemed to use just one. I tried to work my way into a one handed dice roller!!

The Bunco Group from Friday


Melissa and Emily. Melissa does my hair and I love her!! She is so talented and such a beautiful person. She has such a sweet heart. Emily was the host. She was also in the college class when Bryan and I assisted. Isn't she beautiful! She is so kind and made me feel so welcomed.

Terri Holland and Rachel Holland
Terri is Rachel's mother-in-law and Emily's as well. Terri was the one who invited me to Bunco as a sub. It was so much fun to be with this group of ladies and I'm so glad Terri asked me. Terri is such a godly woman. And I know she prays for Bryan and I. Terri and her husband adopted their daughter Heather, so they have been through that process. Terri has such a soft sweet spirit.

Stacy Cox, Kerri Hardin, and Rachel. Kerri is a cancer survivor this year. God has really shown His power through Kerri's healing. Kerri has displayed such a great attitude and praise and glory to God. Her smile is so beautiful. Her and her husband Tim have set such a great example for Bryan and I to follow as a married couple.

Bunco is such a fun time to spend with friends! I am glad that you had the opportunity to learn how to play and that you enjoyed yourself. I can't wait to start a bunco group up here in Huntsville. Anyone interested?

Yay! Bunco is so much fun!!! I used to play it in college but then all the girls that played graduated and moved away from me! I have been looking for a bunco group to join (I'm too lazy to start my own right now). I hope you get to sub again, that group looks fun!
