We've got mail!!

We got a post office box a few months ago and have tested the system out with my Mom. We got the packages, Yay!!! It was fun to get pictures, stickers and a few card games from my parents!!
It was especially fun be able to receive snail mail again...

The boys new hobby...

Titus & Isaac have learned to dive down and catch the fresh water crabs that we have here in the lake. They have to swim along side the shore until they see one then dive down and catch it with their hands. Sometimes...well, a lot of times they come home with crab claw bites all on their hands...Titus says "thats just part of catching crabs!!"
Once they catch them they tie them up with the reeds that grow in the edge of the lake. This is how you buy them in the Market, tied up like this.
This is Alejandro, he (his brothers and cousins and friends) and my boys go out everyday around 1:30. Sometimes there are 8 boys swimming around looking for crabs. They take turns taking the crabs home to eat or to Market to sell.
They have some pretty big ones, they try not to catch the little ones, they are saving them for later!!
When it was Titus turn to take the crabs he decided he wanted to cook them for dinner. He cooked them all by himself, Now doesn't this look good? It was delicious...

Our 15th Anniversary...

Today we are celebrating our 15th Anniversary. It's hard to believe we have been married that long. We have had good times, sad times, fun times, & hard times, but through it all we have been together. I can honestly say we are best friends and enjoy being with each other more than any one else. When we have to be apart it makes us appreciate it even more when we are together. Not only are we best friends we are also ministry partners and really enjoy working with each other. I look forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for us in the next 15 years!!
