( Please be patient while the pictures load )

1. Oprah sends me a Birthday Package


Honest!

Well, actually it one of those "Be the First 5000 to write in and we'll send you some of Oprah's Favourite things" thingies .. and I guess I was fast enough. I had waited for it since April or so, and thought that I was never going to get one, but then, lo and behold, it arrives on my birthday!

Nostalgia and Birthdays

More Reasons to Celebrate

1. A Nostalgic Anniversary



We had dinner with David's and my families ( is that right grammar? ) at a pretty posh local Mexican Restaurant, Abuelo's last year when they were all in town from all over the world for our wedding, and we thought it would be romantic to have dinner there on our anniversary THIS year.....

With an oil pump in the compound, that's what I call a real Texas Drive-in

Our Big A$$ Truck

Followed by a double feature at the local drive-in. It was very exciting for me because I had never been to a drive-in, ever, but having known of them all my life. We parked the pickup, positioned our lounger/lawn chairs in the back and had a wonderful time watching the movies under the stars - I even saw some shooting stars! The wind was blowing though, and even in summer IN TEXAS, that was pretty chilly, so we'll have to make a mental note to bring blankets the next time.

See You in 2 Months, Cindy

We already miss you so much !!!

Yesterday night, we saw Cindy off as she was shuttled off with other church members to the Dallas Airport to catch a plane to Zambia, where she goes off each summer for the Zambia Medical Mission. There, she works, among other things, as a dental assistant and a bible teacher.

We had already started to miss her today, so it was such a sweet surprise to receive a card from her today in the mail, where she had made little caricatures of David and I, and Johnny and herself.

Cindy and Johnny


Can you guess who THESE two are?
