The Great Things People Do

Exactly a year ago, We came home from Chile, South America. Our church gave us a huge grocery shower to help us get started again. The plan was for us to be gone two years at least so we had pretty well gotten rid of everything.

Great fun to watch from the ground. Also Grandma bought all the little ladies matching dresses. They got a little tired of all the photo shoots but these things are a must among moms and grandmas...
