Christmas in July, oh no, it is August!

14 Aug

Where does time fly when you are having fun! Life marches on and I am not doing the greatest job at blogging. I was very inspired today when I watched a blogger on a cooking show today, she managed to keep up easily enough! Oh well, I will try again and not be such a sluggish blogger…. So many fun things and events have happened since we last chatted but I will try to share them with you. In February the team went to Myanmar and they loved every minute of it. Jeremy and Kristen worked in an orphanage and loved the kids. Jeremy also got to preach once along with the other team members, Jack and my hubby. Of course, I had a blast with August for 10 days and we had no problems at all. He acted very cold towards his mom and dad when they came back but that soon passed. Here are some pictures from our great summer so far!

Firstly, one of the greatest events…… we are going to be grandparents again!! Yippeeeeeee  Plus Jeremy and Kristen purchased their first home. So happy and blessed.

Congratulations Jeremy, Kristen and August.

So what did you do this summer so far?


Let it snow….

2 Dec

This time of the year is great with Thanksgiving, family and then Christmas just around the corner! After arriving home from a fantastic 21 day trip to South Africa and being back here in the States, I have come to realize how blessed I am to experience two vastly different cultures!  One thing you do learn is to live by the motto, “When in Rome, do as Rome.”  Differences are not back and I must admit I rather enjoy many of the cultural diversities here and in South Africa.  Jet lag was not to bad with only waking up at 4:00 am for about 5 days in a row.  I do know that my body hates me, as a week after arriving home, I left for a 9 hour trip to Wichita with the family, to celebrate Thanksgiving.  It was well worth it as we had some great times with friends and family. The weather was also great but no snow this year so I made up for it with snow on my page!

Thanksgiving dinner at home before we left for Wichita, Ks.

Decorating after lunch, our tradition.

Outside decorations...Joy to the World!
