September, October, and November 2019

One thing is certain and predictable, life is full when you juggle multiple hats.

That is where I have been over these past months.

Here are some pictures to highlight these bygone months.

August 2019 Family Adventures

We had the four married couples come down for a special event this month (JuBean’s baptism). However, we were over the moon excited to have our three granddaughters come down too. We love our children, but boy do we adore our grand babies!!

All week we set off to yummy restaurants, piled into Maxx for a view of the border at Nogales, and drove up Mount Lemmon for some cool air, trees, gorgeous views, and sunset selfies.

Even though the mission home was cramped with 16 people, we enjoyed the family time and making memories in Tucson.

 

Our three granddaughters all together for the first time!


Christmas 2018

We started off our Christmas season (after all the mission stuff was completed) going to “A Christmas Carol”.

Nothing like Scrooge and the story of compassion, service and brotherly love to get us in the mood for Christmas.

Eboo, Presto, and JuBean were in heaven. The Christmas spirit and “anticipation” were in full gear.

Outside the play, the line for the Giving Machine (#LightTheWorld), was so long and packed. But it was cool seeing one of the five in the entire world.

 

 

Making a gingerbread house is one of our family Christmas traditions. 

We finally got EB to sit and do some Christmas coloring and have some family time.

 

 

We had some wonderful Christmas carolers show up and sing to us.

They were so amazing, we asked them in for more. Thank you Sisters and Elders!

Christmas Eve Dinner: Yummy. Yum. Yummo.

Christmas Jammies 2018

Waiting to go “up” the stairs to see what Santa brought.

 

Let the mess begin!

Christmas morning fatigue and mess…

Christmas is the best with little ones! Dolls, play food, toys….it’s the best!

Lastly, we were able to “Hangout” with Elder Babups!!

He called from Botswana and even though the first call was a silent call (no audio, only video)…

…we got a second chance to talk with him the next day. This time everything worked.

Thank heavens.

What a great way (and sigh of relief) to end the Christmas season by seeing Elder Babups happy and healthy in Africa.

Keep praying for him and all the missionaries around the world. They sure need our prayers.

Happy New Year!
