Our family got home from that work day at 6:00 on Saturday evening. (Phillip and I had been up since 2:30 A.M. that morning...so We were EXHAUSTED!)
But...I couldn't go to bed yet, for I was to have 13 guests over the next day for Sunday dinner. I, who am normally a PLANNER, hadn't had time to purchase the food yet, let alone get it ready.
So, my sweetheart ran out the door to go get the groceries, while Sarah and Kimberly helped me get the kids bathed and ready for bed, and the house semi-cleaned, and some of the food started, etc.
My LIFE SAVER was that our company wasn't coming until around 3:00 P.M. the next afternoon. Jesus helped us get everything pretty much done by the time they came. =)
~I was Happy to get to use my Christmas china again (my birthday gift my first birthday here in Colombia...2006).~
I didn't have a tablecloth to fit these...until Kimberly thought of my dark Grey material that I had purchased and we have used as a PHOTO BACKGROUND for MANY pictures that we have taken!
Kimberly ran and got this grey material and it fit my 3 tables Perfectly! YEA!
(It might not have had the 7" drop, Moma, but hey, at least it hung past the table edge on all sides. =)~
They just recently got 2 new granddaughters.
Mrs. Doris is holding little Ashley, and Mr. Luciano with their other granddaughter little Melanie (named after Melanie Smith.)~
We had a wonderful afternoon together!
We're trying to get in ALL the fun memories we can with our Colombian friends, for soon our days to live in Colombia will end. We get choked up just thinking about it!~
