My Week
 
Last Saturday was Ally's 12th birthday. We had cake. And frosting. And some of us had frosting beards....

On Monday and Tuesday, Josh and I, Daisy and Ally headed to Manila to renew their passports. We let them choose something fun to do....they chose 'trying to stand upright on a blade in the middle of a lake of frozen ice'....we did pretty well...

On our way home from the airport, I saw the best store-name ever....ever...

Lang-lang snapped this photo of the girls feeding some 'carolers' (a.k.a., hungry little boys) some lunch.

I'm in the club! I waited FIFTEEN years for my own shirt...and now I have one. My VERY OWN!!!! Hands off, Josh!

My beautiful friend, Dela, singing a beautiful song, with her beautiful voice. Wow. Encore!

Lang-lang and the young people doing a lovely dance for our churches 'Thanksgiving and Christmas Celebration' service/party.

The end of our Christmas party...and the end of my week. I have no doubt next week will be just as exciting....

After 9 Years.....
 
 
It took a while for mom to work up the courage to come visit us, all the way across the globe, but this year she did it!!
 
We had a great time introducing her to our 'other' home!
 

Buying Christmas lanterns at the jail....of course,
where else would you buy Christmas decorations??
 
Eating durian! 

 
Watching her crazy grandkids swim at the spring.

Grandma and the Moffit gang.

Her granddaughters are catching up!

 
A very jet-lagged Grandma trying to play games with the kids.

 
Swinging' and chattin'.
 

Thanks for coming, Barb....please come again!!
