Happy 2008!

To enlighten you as to what has been going around here lately:

We began the New Year with the church family; starting out with a late evening meal and our annual gift exchange or secret pals game. This is always one of the big highlights for the children. We don't do it for the sake of getting a gift, but it's the fellowship and fun everyone enjoys the most!

Can anyone tell that people around here like good food?(Then again, that is probably universal :-)

Isabelly gets a new dress...everybody say "awwwwww"!

Karina apperently liked her gift!

Nice shirt, Jed :-)

One of the fun parts of playing this is that the giver gets to play a nice kind of "prank" on the reciever! Jana played a hilarious one on her friend... they were literally shaking with laughter here!

This brother got tired finally decided to sit after opening dozens of packages! His rather small gift was placed in the huge box you can see in the picture.:-)

On Tuesday, the men went out to the chacara for a time of fellowship, so the ladies gathered at our house and we made home-made pizzas! It was great!

Making it...

And the best part... Eating it!

So now you have an idea of what we have been doing!
The following pic is of Jedidiah and some 'hard-working' little boys who were helping him re-paint our grades (metal fence?) They work on it very slowly, a little bit here and there,as time allows it, so by the end of this year they should be done!

We wish you a very Happy New Year full of the Lord's blessings! May you let light shine for HIS glory!
