La Fiesta

Yesterday was Emily and Gloria's birthday... Everyone came out to the house for a "Mexican cookout..." tacos with carne asada, guacamole, beans, and lots of other good stuff. Wouldn't it be great if in the above picture both Kaleigh and little Gloria were showing off their adorable smiles?!? Well, that's really not the reality of taking pictures of babies... If you can tell, Emily is holding Kaleigh's hands so she doesn't stick them in her mouth, and Gloria is trying to calm down little Gloria.

Most of you have seen plenty of pictures of the "mordida." After everyone sang Happy Birthday, Emily and Gloria took a "mordida" or bite of a piece of cake with a little help from the kids!!!

Gloria has taken care of the girls for over three years. She is heading back home this Friday. We all will miss her here at CVE!!!

Everyone had a great time at the fiesta!!!

Poncho and Kaleigh... He LOVES to push Kaleigh around in her stroller. Every time he asks to push her, Emily asks him for his driver's license... He just grins.

Keep praying for God's continued guidance for all of us at CVE as we trust Him to guide us each day with His wisdom and strength! We covet all of your prayers!!
