Last weekend we had a barbecue potluck with our new friends/community group.
Even the younger ones had fun tossing balloons.
John and I worked in two shifts helping Andrew with his mission project. I helped with the first half and here is John working on the second half.
In the middle of making Ranger cookies the other day, our mixer started acting up. We all got a good chuckle out of mixing up cookie batter with one beater.
Sure was a workout! I guess I know what I am getting for Mother's Day even if I end up getting it myself.
Here I am with Dennis at the Mother's Tea. Gosh, what a handsome young man he is growing up to be!
And here I am with Alex. He loved listening to me read him story after story! And look at his smile-- oh my he is a cutie!
For Mother's Day weekend, my Aunt Tanya, Mom, and Sister Elena came over to visit.
Here I am with my Aunt Tanya (my Mom's sister) who I am very close to who is like a second Mom.
I love her to pieces.
She got this bike a long time ago and sent it down to us with hopes that we or my father-in law could fix it.
Turns out it needed new tire tubes and then it was ready to go. But we told her that she could not have it back until we actually saw her ride it.
And she did!
Here is me and my sister. She is moving to Texas tomorrow so this was our last time visiting for a while. I will miss her, but I know we'll see each other again.
