Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Yes, I know that Thanksgiving was last week. We had a marverlous day. We got together over at Mom's with my sis and her fam, and 2 other missionary families. We ate traditional Thanksgiving food. Chile is very good about having most of what we need to celebrate. Bro. Phil brought his laptop with the first season of Star Trek TOS! We watched "The Man Trap" WooHoo. You gotta love old ST!

Special thanks to Michele for the lovely ecard. What a blessing! And also to Courtney, for her sweet Thanksgiving greeting.

The reason that I am so late in all this is of course, the baby. Babies look so small! But I am telling you, they are a full time employer! I already have 3 other full time positions: Wife, Mother, Pastor's wife. But for now, Baby's mother trumps the rest. I have not been able to keep up with other duties and am beginning to feel overwhelmed. I cannot imagine how a single mom does it! I cannot understand the Supermoms that have 4 kids, and are pregnant, and still have a clean house AND live to blog about it!

As most of you are enjoying a lovely Fall, we are in a Chilean heat wave. Not too hot to you, but boiling to us. We had to go to the City on Monday for Dr.s appt. We had to leave our "new" minivan at the mechanic. We were on foot and in cabs all day. Hot hot hot. Me no like hot.
Anyway, Dr was pleased with Vanessa's growth and health. So we have a lot to be thankful for.

Well, Happy late Thanksgiving wishes to you too. Sounds like you had a wonderful time with family and friends.

So glad little Vanessa is growing and coming along like she should be.
Must be so nice to have a new little one, enjoy!

I marvel at the full time working mothers who manage to get their children to school on time every day. Lol I struggle to get two there, we manage it but only just.

Don't worry about the cleaning. My motto when knee deep in nappies (diapers) was as long as the kitchen and bathroom were hygenic the rest will be done when it's done. Although I must admit I was constantly apologising to visitors because of what I saw as a most untidy house. Lol, I'm not as laid back as I want to be.

Glad that Vanessa is growing nicely.
