the last few weeks....

We had our whole family here for Thanksgiving. It was great and who knows when it will happen again. Joe took me out for our anniversary. We have been married for 29 years. Wow, didn't know he could put up with me that long. lol. He bought me a beautiful silver and diamond necklace and earrings. Then we asked Tim where he wanted to go eat before he left and he said he wanted to go to Hanks, Hanks he couldn't pick Outback he had to choose Hanks. So we went to Hanks. It is delicious, but expensive. Then Jeff and Joe took Cathy and I out for our birthdays. We went to dinner and to a show. We had a nice time. The show wasn't so great but the company was very nice. Joe came me another necklace. This one was diamonds and rubies. Cathy gave me a pair of earrings. I love them both. I enjoy celebrating our birthdays together. Then on Sunday my actual birthday, we went to a friends house for dinner. Oh my, it was so delicious!!! They went to a lot of work. Steak, appetizers, homemade ravioli, spaghetti, veggies, salad, homemade bread... awesome. Such great people and suck a great time we had. They invited our whole family. I couldn't believe it. What a great day. Their daughter and I even had cake with candles. My poor grandson got sick. I hope none of them do.

Well, Tim gets set apart tomorrow morning. We leave for the MTC in the afternoon. I am excited but sad. You so want your children to go on a mission but you really don't want to miss out on 2 years of their lives. I love having missionaries. I love writting them. I love sending them packages. It is a wonderful experience for them. Tim will grow so much. He will love Cape Verde so much! I can't wait for him to get there.

After we drop him off we are going to scuba dive in the crater. That should be fun. I hope it goes well. Cachay won't be able to but that is okay she will later.
