Per the request of many dear friends who don't use facebook, I will try to update this blog every so often, especially now that we are in the pre-surgery phase of our journey.
So...what have we been up to since we got here in mid-December?
Enjoying the weather...
Deysi and my mom (Jane)
Advent wreath preparation
Snowy day fun
Visiting dear friends...
My great buddy Sarah Liane Foster, who taught us how to play "hot dice"
Our dear friends and benefactors from Prospect United Methodist Church in North Carolina
Deysi's sponsors (padrinos) Carolyn and Robert Deese who lovingly received us in their home in North Carolina
Carmen Deese (Carolyn and Robert's daughter)

Working hard and helping out...
The vacuum really is a pretty amazing thing
Getting ready to dig out the car!
