Thanks for the pics Debbie!!! You are certainly on a roll. Whose going away party? Whose house was it at? Glad to see we aren't the only ones who like some shut eye. I am on my way to bed. Sunday School Program practice starts tomorrow. Must be at the church at 8:30 ... that means ... the eyelids should go to sleep.

My goal this week is cards. Last week, when it was still November, I thought I was doing so good in the Christmas department. Then all of a sudden the month was gone. Don't know how that happens. Wish me luck!

We look forward to more pics ... keep 'em coming. Makes us faraway folks feel just a titch more connected ... especially when we would love to be there singing Christmas carols, baking, frantically shopping ... just going happily crazy!

I am so happy Debbie is able to keep up a little info from our end. She loves doing it! She yells for me to come look at new pictures and reads me postings while I am doing other things. She is providing a nice bridge when I can't seem to get on here as often as I would like.

The party was for our Ecuadorian friend and was held at Sinikka and Russel's. Many of you met him as he came to stay stay with us when he came to the US in time for Summer Services. He has gone with us to the Range, so several met him there. He hopes to come back in a few months, but we know we plan and God decides. Time will tell.

I've been printing the Ecuadorian's
name as Evan as it isn't pronounced
like our Ivan but somewhere in
these blogs, Debbie spelled it as
Ivan. Went to look in our guest
book and sure enough, it is
spelled Ivan. Just pronounced
the other way, like Finnish e's are
i's and i's are e's! dk
