(Why I Haven’t Posted)

We’ve had rather a lot going on–these pictures are just a wee bit of what has happened since I last posted. I really will post more about the trip, but until then… here’s a taste of the craziness.

Traditional New Year’s eve party…

Church at HisRanch (like Central America, except in English and the people don’t get into the singing here like they do there.)

Cleaning Pregnancy Solutions with these crazy gals. (3 of my sisters, plus Ada and Althea who visited from PA for a week. We had a great time with them… you girls can come back any time!!!)

They look like models in this picture… not normally something I appreciate but in their case it was accidental so I don’t mind.

Meanwhile us older girls aren’t as photogenic, but hey–we can jump.

Bright Lights! We talked about our trip to CA and taught them some of the games we played, along with “He decidido seguir a Cristo” (I have decided to follow Jesus). They are now more ready for the trip than we were. 😀

We went to Orlando for our cousin Victoria’s birthday party… we did floating lanterns. If you haven’t done them, you should. It was epic.

  1. Way to put all the pictures of us being silly on here, Mommy. 🙂 Now everyone will think we are crazy…..oh wait, we are. 😛 Great post though! All these pictures made me miss you guys (not that I wasn’t already). What cracks me up though, is the picture of all of us after bright lights and all of the Mann girls are doing exactly the same thing. 😀 😀

    • Haha, well, it is your fault for making all the faces…. 😉

      Thanks! I know, we miss you guys too. 😦 Come baaaack!!

      Hehe… something about being sisters I guess.

      • Yes, yes, I know. 😉 I wanna come baaaack too!! 😦
        Oh, I’m sure it’s cause you’re sisters. Its just funny cause I was like “oh look Carissa and Hannah are making the same face, haha, and Emily and Cheryl are doing it too!” 😀
        Those floating lanterns looks so awesome! I wanna see one it real life! All this time I thought they were just something made up (for “Tangled”, ya know ;D) and I told Ada and she was like “you didn’t know?!!” Anyway, I’m so happy to find out they are real. 😀
