Party in 1 Week

We are letting everyone know about our fundraiser on Nov. 3rd. This is a very important date for us; this is the day our girls arrived at our home last year. Tell all of your friends to come out and help us celebrate our 1st year anniversary and have a good time. We are also having a silent auction and are going to have many cool things available. If anyone has something they would like to donate for the auction please contact us at 686-576-0379 or 619-920-2292.

Thanks everyone for your support! It's going to be a lot of fun.

We're having a Party!!!!

We are having our 1 year anniversary on Nov. 3rd at Rumors Restaurant in Playa De Oro from 5pm to 9pm. We are having music by Denny Flannigan and Jeannie is doing a great dinner for us, angel hair pasta with shrimp and penne pasta with chicken. Tickets are on sale around town and also at our booth at the swapmeet in El Dorado on Saturdays. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there to help us celebrate our first year. Our girls were given to us on Nov. 3rd so this day is especially important to us.

We have been very blessed to have the support of the people in our lives. It never fails to amaze me that when you are at the edge of need that is when God blesses you. Last week with Rafael and the Poker Run came at a great time for us. This week our new friends, Lillian & Steve, came to our door looking for people to help. They had come from San Diego looking to help someone and after asking Padre Efrain at the Catholic Church they were directed here, and it only took them over an hour to find us with the various directions people gave them. Never the less their perseverance was a total blessing for us, they stocked us with food that we were in real need of. We were able to visit with them for a couple of hours and we are looking forward to working together in the future. You never know when an angel will come to your door.

The girls are doing great and we are moving them to a new school to help with their studies. It will be a little longer drive, but how many of us have gone out of their way for their children. They are the most important part of the equation.

See you at the party.

We went to the Poker Run!!

We were invited to the Pete's Camp 32nd Poker Run this year to be presented to the crowd and awarded a generous donation by Rafael Navarro. We want to thank Rafael, he has been a friend for many years and he was very helpful in our getting our water subsidy from the State of Baja. He is tireless in his public works and is a valuable part of San Felipe.
It was fun taking Perla with us to give her an opportunity to see the cars and let her take some pictures with the camera she earned being such a good kid. She has a good eye for art and this gives her a good creative outlet.
Alejandra turned 9 this Sat. She was walking on clouds for the several days prior and was especially good so we would be sure to have a party for her. It was fun having some friends over and we all had a good time.
Thank goodness, SUMMER IS OVER!!!!! It is soo nice to have the good weather we all came here to enjoy. The girls can go out during the day without getting heat stroke and can play for longer than 30 minutes. We are planning our fall planting and garden for melons and vegetables. We have an area set aside for Alejandra and Perla to have their own space to grow plants. We'll see.
The other good thing with the end of summer is that the AC is not on anymore. Those big electric bills are a real killer trying to stay out of the heat. A friend was saying that it was amazing how nice 85* was in your house when it was 105* outside. All things are relative.
Thanks everyone for your help this summer, it seems like just as we needed the help people came through.
Best wishes to Penny Nask, we are praying for you and are anxious for you to get home.
