Life is keeping me quite busy. Remember...I'm the "mother of EIGHT children" right now! :-)
Jesus is helping Kara, Bethany, and Kimberly with their language studies down town. For safety reasons Phillip goes with them and then uses that time to study His Bible, etc. They and Phillip are gone for 7 hours each day.

~While living in the countries of Costa Rica, Colombia, and here in Argentina Phillip and I have never gone away for any of our anniversaries (cause we didn't want to leave our kids alone), but this year being our 20th we decided to take a couple days and a night and have a Fun get away.
Of course Kimberly and Sarah were more than capable of watching the children, and they could call us any time they needed us!~
~But, we didn't get away ALONE...Look who snuck away with us! ;-) ~
~Waiting for the train that would take us downtown to our hotel.~
~We only ate one meal out while we were away, and this was our lunch/supper on Thursday. It was delicious and relaxing.~
~This is what Baby Abigail did while we ate.~
~Don't you love her adorable little red satin shoes?! :-) Thanks Bryon and Michele!~
~Abigail had not been sleeping well, so I was pretty exhausted, but we had a fun time being together.~
~I'm posting this pic of us, so you can see the buildings behind us. There are A LOT of beautiful ornate buildings here in Buenos Aires. Reminds us a lot of New Orleans.~
~My Fruit Salad for dessert!~
~After lunch we walked a fun street and did a little shopping. That is where we found my cream coat in the picture above! I was HAPPY to find that coat...for a GREAT price!
Thursday evening before walking back to the hotel...we did stop in Havana and enjoyed a Frappe...minus the coffee...so that Abigail and I would SLEEP! :-) ~
~In the hotel...They brought Abigail her very own bed....~
~And look, Gram, they even gave me my own white sheet, white quilted comforter, and my very own tiny pillow with it's own embroidered pillow case. :-) ~
~We came back to the room and had some hot tea... .~
~In the hotel instead of leaving only 2 chocolates...they left one for Baby Abigail too! :-)~
~My Sweetheart surprised me with these beautiful roses...
~And this nice watch.~
~Our Dear Friends Leo and Caro gave us this CUTE little box which contained... ~
~these CUTE little white "Love Bird" salt and pepper shakers! ~
A whole buffet of nearly everything you can think of. It was DELISH!!
It was so filling that we didn't need anything else until we got home. :-)

~THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS AND DEAR PHILLIP,
FOR 20 WONDERFUL YEARS OF MARRIAGE!!~
