A Very Full November

I am excited to announce that there are some much needed changes happening with the blog!

As much as I have wanted to stay in touch on here, with the ridiculous amount of reading I am doing for school (some weeks its over 500 pages!) plus the time I am spending sitting in front of a computer screen and typing papers, forums, critiques, taking exams and submitting assignments... I just can't seem to find the time or energy to write and keep up with the blog...

After talking with my dear friend about how frustrated I have been with myself for not keeping up, she encouraged me to STOP trying to do it all and turn over the responsibility to someone I KNOW can handle it! (Thank you Kris!)


Our daughter Haylie is such a fabulous writer and has done a great job staying in touch through HER blog that I have asked her to officially take over our family blog... and she is SUPER excited about that!  Haylie is now writing for us and I know she will keep you all connected on a regular basis.

 Thank you all SO much for your patience with me and for your desire to connect with our family and with what God is doing here at Emmaus. 

Without further ado...

 Here's Haylie!

Hey guys! As my Mom said, I am so excited to be taking over this blog! To start off, I'm gonna tell you about our crazy full November!

Two of my Mom's good friends, Martie and Trish, came down to visit us for a few days! 
Here we are with Prudence, an amazing lady who runs the OMS clinic!

And here they are at the beach...

Isn't that gorgeous?

Sadly their stay here had to come to a close...

Rosa was so excited to have her Mom and sister come to visit her for a week, 
(and of course we all were too!). They stayed for a week helping around the house and spending quality time with us!

We had an amazing Thanksgiving here with our OMS family, playing games and eating great food!

This past Sunday we hiked up to Coup A David for the first time since we've been back!

One of our good Haitian friends, Aldy, who came with us this time, told me people call Haiti 
"La Terre de la Montagne" or, "The Land of Mountains".

My brother and I have gotten so much closer since coming to Haiti. I really love spending these precious little moments with him...

The humble beauty of this house was incredible.

Probably the most adorable cow I've ever seen.

I would take this dusty little path over a paved road anytime...

Mom and I hiking together...

The farther away you get from town, the more you see Haiti's natural beauty...

Over these past couple months, I've gotten to watch little Nora grow everyday. I'm so excited to see what God has planned for her life!

With the end of November, comes Christmas time, which is probably our family's favorite holiday... (Definitely my mom's favorite!!) 
It truly is the most wonderful time of the year....

I am so blessed to live in a place so special and dear to my heart.

Until next time...
