Aprons for Argentina friends

Before my trip to Argentina I decided I wanted to take some gifts. We picked up books, posters, candies, etc and I also made 2 aprons for ladies I had been exchanging emails with, Maria and Marcela. (My daughter Kristina is here modeling them for me so I could have a keepsake of what I'd made.) Another email friend was Susana, but I had previously sent an apron to her through the mail. I was so excited to meet them and wanted to take them something home made from me. Both of them are amazing and fun women and I thoroughly enjoyed being with them, eating with them, talking and laughing with them, shopping with them and just being in their company. Oh how I wish we lived closer! But what a blessing it is to live in a day and age with email and instant communication.

Argentina trip

Just got back from a wonderful trip to Argentina to pick up our son who was serving a mission for our church for the last 2 years. We spent a little over a week with him meeting people he had taught, eating with families who loved him and seeing the sights of Cordoba Argentina. It was amazing and we made such wonderful friends there. It was very bittersweet to meet such wonderful people, love being with them, then realizing that we might never be able to see them again. When we got home we had a great reunion with family and friends. Here is a slide show of some of our pictures from the last few weeks.
