Consider this a cry for help to all of my bloggy buddies out there....
My husband Paul and I are coordinating the couple's retreat for our church. There are about forty people signed up to attend so far. Some very dear friends of ours moved away last year. They used to be our partners in crime when it came to pulling jokes on one another while away. We have short sheeted each others beds, tied garbage can lids to the back of vehicles and there has even been a fart machine used at one time I won't mention in print. Last year they redecorated our room in early 1970's fashion with HUGE green mottled lamps and a lovely glass grape chandelier that they hung over our toilet. Sadly, the Lord called them out to another church in New Mexico where Kirk is now the worship pastor and his wife Lara oversees the coffee and bookstore, and I am sure gives a helping hand with the women's Bible studies too.
When they left we were so sad. Surprisingly, as close as they were with so many of us, emails and phone calls ended. They were so very busy in a new church body, getting their three children settled and the likes. I told Lara's brother who attends our church, "If I had known when Kirk and Lara moved that it would be the last time I would talk with them, I would have cried harder!" I told him that I didn't think they really moved to another church...I think they are in the witness protection program.
Well, they are now flying up for our retreat and will be handling our worship. We are really looking forward to seeing them and getting to spend time with them again.
HERE IS WHAT I NEED FROM YOU: Any good natured, fun loving pranks that we can do to their room, or to them would be greatly appreciated.
Paul and I were talked into handling this retreat (thanks again Dana!) with the sole purpose of knowing that being in charge meant that we would have a key to their room!
I would love any feedback you guys may have. Time is drawing near for their arrival and I don't have much ammunition for this retreat. HELP!
