Holidays

November 1st is a holiday in Chile. It’s similar to our Memorial Day. They had a huge program (mass) at the cemetery and TONS of people everywhere. They were all cleaning and decorating their family members grave sites.

Flowers were everywhere. It’s a pretty location with the ocean right there.

The father had many words to say to the gathering. He spoke about not coming to the cemetery and being SAD forever. He talked about those that have died are not sad they are with Jesus and they are happy. They sang lots of songs that were really beautiful to hear. We really liked the ceremony.

This… on the other hand was not so exciting….. Our day at the Registration office (DMV experience) We tried to figure out the system. Our little paper said E 62. And… on the BIG BOARD…. all we saw was A80. WHAT??? Then it would flash a C40 or so… Yeah?? Luckily we were only there for 1.5 hours. We figured out the system and made it through. The lady that was helping us was…. at the end of her shift…. She didn’t want Brian to answer any of the questions she asked me. HHHMMM   Yep that went well.   Her eyes rolled more times that I could count.  

Hugs to you all

  1. what fun for you all! DMV and a wonderful holiday. We have had fun here – took Skookie to the vet for shots – as he needed them to board. I as headed to visit Krystal and babysit the little ones, and Kevan was going out of town. Needless to say the vet was very nice and of course wanted to give us a lot more than shots – like a special plan just for Skookie, isn’t that nice – and only $500 or more! This of course includes teeth cleaning and more. Kevan was like – no thanks, just the shots please – and we are out of here 🙂 Giving them all haircuts and baths today. Weather getting cooler and they are looking like rag muffins – it will be the last haircut of the year – so they can stay warm all winter (well except might do their faces, so especially Maya can see). Love hearing how you are doing and that your adventure is all and more than you thought it would be. Know you are loved and prayed for. Have a great new week. Love ya Anita
