Here are the boys hanging out at the border crossing while we got our passports stamped.
After arriving to Copan and getting settled in we walked down the street to Cafe Welchez for coffee and dessert. We ordered carrot cake and Snicker's cake. Both of them were delicious and went great with my cappuccino.

That evening we had plans to visit a new missionary family serving in Copan and have supper with them in their home. We had been communicating through email for a few months but this was our first time to meet them face to face. I was really excited about getting to know them and especially for our kids to play together. We had a fun evening and are looking forward to seeing them again in the new year.

This is the one I purchased back in March on my trip to Lima, Peru. Isn't it precious!
David led Bible study in the village of Nearar on Sunday morning. We rested in the afternoon and that evening we gathered around the computer screen and enjoyed a live streaming of Carols by Candlelight. It is an annual Christmas program put on by First Baptist Church, Jackson, MS. It was wonderful and I loved that our family got to enjoy it. The music just blessed our hearts. My sweet friend back home, Malinda, sings in the choir there. We loved picking her face out from the group. It was a fun evening and I think we'll try to make this an annual part of our Christmas time from now on. Isn't technology great!!!

So that wrapped up our weekend. It was fun from start to finish. I cannot believe it is only 9 more days until Christmas. We are ready for it to come but not quite ready for it to pass. This is such a fun time of the year.
