just what we needed

The weekend away was just what we needed! It was full of fellowship, great food, beautiful scenery and 2 full nights of sleep. We feel so blessed to have been able to spend time with our friends from Southern Cal. What an amazing group of people. :)

Thank you Pam and Steve for letting us crash in the swankiest pad around for a second time. Your hospitality and generosity were greatly appreciated. The kids insist that they get to return the next time.

Check out these two Ethiopian beauties-- I think that several marriages were being brokered over the course of the weekend.  Pray for little Miss Zoe and her parents as they leave for Ethiopia to bring home her big sister this week.

And it was our joy to stay with the five Alexanders left behind. Your blog readers need to know the amazing sibling support that little Abe receives on a daily basis. God has lavishly equipped Avery, in particular, to love and nurture her little brother. Nanny could not have done it without her. And let's not forget Gloria. So, maybe Hillary was right and it does "take a village!"
Three adults, one child who acts like an adult (and cooks like one too!!!) and 5 kids! Great odds.
What a blessing for Nanny & Bunty.
P.S. Nanny & Bunt will go with the kids to the Thornes when they go. Deal???
