~Our family day on Monday~

~Last week was "friendship day" here in Colombia. While at church last Sunday a lady from church gave me a sun flower and her daughter gave Kimberly a rose. However, my Sarah (WHO LOVES GIFTS) was very SAD that she didn't get a flower. So, I told her that she and I could share mine...which made her heart happy.~
~My Phillip, (who arises Very early in the mornings) sat down to read his Bible and hold a fussy Elijah, while I ran to prepare Elijah's bath water. When I came back, this is what I found...2 sleeping men.~
~For our family day last Monday we went to McDonalds for lunch and to let the kids play. We try to take a family day on Mondays to help relieve the stress that we live in being in a different culture and ministering nearly every other day of the week...and just to spend time together.~
~Kimberly, Noah, and Sarah in the playground at McDonalds.~
~Kimberly and Elijah on the playground at McDonalds.~
~We went to a park and the kids enjoyed playing for a few minutes.~
~My sweetheart holding his sweetheart (me=) and our baby Elijah.~
~A picture of Elijah and his Daddy. I finally was able to capture a picture of the 3 balls on top of Elijah's warm handmade hat from Ecuador. Our family loves Elijah in his hat.~
~I was holding Elijah and didn't know that his hat was over his face until Phillip said, "Stay right there...I want to take a picture of Elijah...his hat is over his eyes." Poor baby! =)~
~Elijah in his bib overalls says, "No, I have not been farming long. HA!~
~The other day we had ice cream cones and Elijah surely was watching us with LOTS of interest...but we didn't give him any licks yet...we'll wait until he's older.~
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your prayers for us here.

I'm glad you told us that Sarah loves gifts. I was laughing right out loud at my computer when I read the caption that said, Phillip holding his sweetheart, (Me!) if we wouldn't know who his sweetheart was-but, you were making it clear it wasn't Elijah! Smile! I laughed out loud again when I saw the picture of the 'blind' Elijah with his hat pulled over his eyes. I loved these pictures of all of you-they made me so happy to see them, and of course, I enlarged each one so I could see every tiny detail. Love, Mom D

I really enjoy reading your updates, I think ya'll do such a good job with the balance between missions and family, it's a hard one to find. So sorry that I took so long to get this recipe to you, it looks and smells wonderful, but I haven't made any pies with it yet.
24 cups sliced apples, 3T.lemon juice, 4 1/2 cups sugar, 1 cup cornstarch, 2 t. cinnamon, 1 t. salt, 1/4 t. nutmeg, 10 cups water. Toss apples with lemon juice. In lg. pot, combine sugar, cornstarch and spices. Add water, bring to boil for 2 min. Add apples, cover and simmer until apples are tender 6-8 min. Cool for 30 min. and freeze. Makes enough for 4 pies
