I had a few photos that I forgot to add to our Thanksgiving post so I will start with them. Here were two of our pre-Thanksgiving meals.
My boys loved these turkey waffles I served them for breakfast.
They also loved these "turkey" sandwiches.
We spent Black Friday making a visit to the La Aurora Zoo in Guatemala City with our new friends the Riddles. The boys all had a blast being there together.

On Saturday night David attended a service at Bro. Fito's church in Chiquimula. They were having services all weekend long to celebrate their anniversary.
On Sunday morning we all attended service at Bro. Elias's church in Chiquimula. My boys always enjoy when we get to go there because they have a children's class that meets in the back. We like it because we can sit down without them and enjoy the service. We do not get to go often because David is usually teaching in the village on Sunday mornings so when we do it is a treat for us all.
As I mentioned already we got our Christmas trees up this week. I always have a big tree in the living room and then a smaller tree that is for the boys. Their tree is filled with ornaments they have made over the years or ornaments that have been given to them. They were so tickled this year to get to do their own tree almost completely by themselves. They helped me with mine too- a lot more than I needed. ha

My boys love having Christmas movie nights during December. So far we have watched two movies. Our first one of the season was Elf and it is our favorite. I am sure we'll be watching it again a few more times before Christmas is over.

Another thing they love about Christmas movie nights is hot chocolate. Well, Ben loves it. Cruz always begs for it and then never drinks it.
We were in Muyurco on Thursday afternoon for Bible study. Miguel went with us and led the order of service. Most of our men are away right now picking coffee so it was mostly women and children. It didn't stop us from having a great time of worship together.

Hooray, it's finally Friday!!! The boys and I are home finishing up our week of school today while David is making a round trip to the airport to pick up our supervisor and his wife who are flying in from Mexico to visit us. We are looking forward to hosting them. We'll be spending a few days showing them around our work area and introducing them to some of the people we work with. It should be a fun few days. I'll post about our time together one day next week. Have a great weekend everyone!
