Samuel's 2nd Birthday Party

Yee-haw! We had a great cowboy party at the Porter's today with a lot of church people and some of their neighbors and families from Kelton's school. It was a great time had by all with three-legged races, pin the tail on the horse, chili dogs and lots of American candy. They even had yellow cake and chocolate icing cupcakes (my favorite!). It was a great turn out and there must've been about 60 people (although that's a guess because I didn't count). Happy Birthday Sammy! We had a wonderful time! Aubry especially liked the twizzlers! Her face is still red!

Five Years On The Mission Field

Wow! We've been on the field for 5 years now today. We had our team banquet Thursday night to celebrate. It was a winter theme with Olympics awards for recognizing accomplishments of team members over the last year. This year instead of going out, we had our banquet at church and cooked ourselves. Well... Matt and Heather cooked. Matt made is famous chilli and Heather her wonderful potato soup. Mary V bought a really chique chocolate strawberry cake. Valerie and Mary V and Randy decorated (Matt and Russ contributed with a few snowflakes). Our thank yous to each other were more personal this year and our kids were a little more wild since it was at church. All in all, it was a fun team banquet and it was good to celebrate this big 5 year marker!
