GUESS WHAT!!! Karl got the disc fixed. I LOVE that man (and not just because of this). I took off our great Show Hope shirts in order to represent for Africa....and Andrea.
And now, ladies and gentlemen the last part of the Stephen Curtis Chapman drama that I left out:
After we talked with the big man and he signed the Cannons Christmas picture, they asked if we could find our way out. We said, "Yes." This, however, would prove not to be the case. We were definitely lost in the deep caverns of the Morris Performing Arts Center. Finally, against Adam's better judgment, we decided to go up this elevator. As we stepped out onto the first floor into darkness, we tried to get our bearings. About this time, a VERY loud and VERY obnoxious alarm started to sound. Can you picture this scenario?!? It's 11:00 at night, Adam has a HUGE bag of change that he has agreed to deposit for the adoptive family grant and send a check to Shaohanna's Hope, and we are in an empty part of the Morris setting off the alarm in the dark. I can just imagine police coming around the corner with guns drawn (what I was REALLY hoping, though, is it would give me another chance to see Stephen :) ) Well, very pregnant Carrie and I sat down on a bench while Adam went out another set of doors and tried to problem solve. Finally, the security guard came and led us in the right direction saying, "I knew it was you guys." No Stephen. No guns. But a memorable ending to a very fun and memorable night!!!
