A message to prank callers

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jennifer Seltzer @ 5:58 am

The Aaron Seltzer that lives at this house is NOT the Aaron Seltzer that directs wierd scarry movies.  I think my house would be bigger, and yet it’s not.  Please do not call at all hours.  Please get a life and check your facts.  And the excuse of “I’m just letting you know”  when I actually do answer is lame and inexcusable.

I went looking through my summer pictures and thought I’d share a few.

Elijah is officially the Lord’s

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jennifer Seltzer @ 9:25 pm


We officially dedicated Elijah to the Lord today.  We did not have a big celebration or invite a lot of people, in fact if you didn’t know about it, I’m sorry.  I was having a conversation with a really good friend the other day and I happened to mention we were dedicating Elijah this Sunday.  She was shocked I had a so so attitude about it and made a few really good points.   I told my friend we were not sentimental, not having a huge celebration and the reason why was because we’ve already dedicated our kids to the Lord (not publicly) and have been raising them that way.  She pointed out all the other worldly celebrations the world makes important and when someone makes a decision for the Lord we should celebrate that even more since this should be more important for us as christians.  Second, she pointed out that many people choose to live together and not officially marry, but make a committment to stay together.  Which doesn’t make sense, since they ‘plan’ to stay together, why not make it official.  So we’ve made a committment to raise our kids in the Lord but not publicly, why not make it official?  Thirdly she thinks it’s important to make a public statement to my church family so that they can keep me accountable. 

I like her points.  Anybody have anything they want to add?  Or disagree with?  Have you dedicated your kids?  What are the reasons for why or why not?  Just curious….no judgements from me, I promise!

Aaron and I were lucky enough to be invited by our friend to watch the taping of his television debut.  Yes, it was only wheel of fortune but he looked great on t.v.!  It was a very long day and we sat through 4 tapings of the show.  Let’s just say you won’t see me clapping for a very long time!  Interested to know how he did?  Check out Wheel of Fortune October 16th….his name is Josh Banker.   There is a 33.333333% chance you will see yours truly on t.v as well….you’ll just have to watch and see…or email me, I break under pressure.

Cabo San Lucas

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jennifer Seltzer @ 9:55 pm

I am no longer jealous of you vacationers!  I have been there and done that and now it’s time to make you all jealous.  I left the boys at home and went for an all girls trip to Cabo.  This is the third time I’ve been and it keeps getting better every time.  I think the reason I love it so much is because it reminds me of Lake Powell.  I grew up going there every summer and due to some unfortunate family circumstances, we no longer go.  Anyhow, Cabo has replaced my childhood nostalgic.  It’s a two hour flight but a world away.  It’s where the desert meets the ocean…
