Since no one has posted anything to this blog in almost a year, I've decided to start using it in conjunction with some other blogs I follow. I enter a lot of giveaways and you can often get an extra "entry" if you post their "button" on your blog. So that's what those buttons are on the left hand side. Hope no one minds. Join in if you'd like!

I thought I'd post a few pictures since it's been such a LONG time since anyone posted anything. There are lots of posts that I check on a daily basis because they are constantly being updated. We should use this post more often!!
I think we all thank Cindy and Mike for opening their home to us again. That's no small thing as large as our family is getting. And you can take "large" anyway you like! ha
If you don't know, Jenni has a blog at http://www.the-keas-to-my-heart.blogspot.com/ and Jennifer has one at http://www.mihillscrew.blogspot.com/ And that's mihills...crew. The first time I looked at it I thought she must have been very stressed when she named it! :)
Enjoy the pics....that is if I can get it to work. I was concentrating on getting pictures of the kids when my battery went dead. That's why I don't have more of the rest of us.
Love you all, Debbie

I had a few more pictures that I thought ya'll might enjoy seeing. The last one is one David took. I thought it turned out really good. We had it made into a 5x7. If anyone wants a copy let me know and I'll e-mail you the picture.
I thought it was a really nice day. I know we really enjoyed seeing everyone and then having a bunch of you over to the house.
Hope everyone is getting ready for our reunion!!!!
Love you, Debbie

We went to Port Aransas last weekend for the annual Texas Sandfest. One of our friends is a Master Builder in the sand sculpture competition. We had a blast, even though we never saw the sun!! I know, it was gorgeous across the whole state of Texas, except where we were. Like I said, it didn't bother the girls at all. Although, because of all the rain, I hardly had the camera out. Here are a couple that I took. Enjoy!
Well, it looks like I got the dragon one on twice. I was trying to get a big castle, with arches, etc. Was pretty neat. The big dragon is showing the little dragon a small scale of the castle and surrounding, with a dotted line showing how to attack. It's title was "Castle Attack, 101". Cute!
The next one was titled, "And on the Seventh Day, He Rested". I thought that was neat. Then the one with the babies. I missed the title of it. Just thought it was neat. There were dozens and dozens of sculptures. So amazing. We can't wait to go next year!

These are just miscellaneous pictures from the guys' mission trip to Nicaragua. The bus was the usual mode of transportation and Russell said that really, the only thing that needed to work on it was the horn!
There is a view outside their room. They stayed in a woman's private home, but she rents out her rooms as a hotel. They would get on the bus each morning and travel to some little town to work.
Russell wound up being the optician. He said he learned in 15 minutes what it took Mike 4 years to learn. He said he was going to talk to Mike about going into practice with him! ha The picture of the little boy is one that really touched Russell's heart. He was blind and had been from birth. Cody said it was probably congenital cataracts. It's a condition easily fixed by surgery, but the boy's family couldn't afford the surgery. Russell made arrangements for him to be taken to Managua to the hospital there for the surgery. We are supposed to hear from the local preacher when that's been done.
Other views are of the town of Jinotaga. As you can see, it's mostly dirt streets. Russell said the whole country of Nicaragua was really filthy. Cody said they all have parasites. Each patient he would see he would ask if they wanted medicine for their parasites. The interpreter would talk to them and then each one would shake his head "No!". Cody's interpreter finally told him that what he was actually asking them was "Would you like some parasites?" I guess they thought he was crazy!! ha
I included some pictures of Cody working. One was a lady with a large cyst on her back. No doctor would remove it because she couldn't pay for the surgery. Cody removed it and you can tell by looking at her how much better off she is now. Also, there are some pictures of Cody removing a head parasite from a boy. He said the worm was quite a bit bigger than he had expected! I could have included some pictures of a horrible open ulcerated wound on a woman's foot, but I can hardly stand to look at that myself!
Well, I've tried 3 times to post this. This is going to be my last try. Hopefully it will work!
