The Last few Days at the Marr House

Standard

If any of you have been wondering why I haven’t been posting much, or have been really slow at answering emails, chats, and commenting on y’all’s blogs, I have a good excuse, okay! 😉 😀 😛

So last week, we had a group come to our house for a week from Coahuila, another state in Mexico. They came from my grandparent’s church. (Who are also missionaries in Mexico. They came too 🙂 ) We had a blessed time with them, and it was a blast!

The group while on their way to our house. (The four people in the middle are my Grandpa and Grandma, and my Aunt and Uncle.)

They got here on Thursday night of last week, and left super early this morning. I must say, the house seems so quiet and empty without them. Even though we still have a family of 11 here… 😛 😉 😀

My Aunt Abigail, with two of the girls who came.

 

While they were here, we held our very first church service in the brand new building! 😀 It wasn’t totally finished as there still was no door, but at least we had walls! Hopefully they will put in the walls today before Wednesday night church. (They were supposed to do it yesterday, but they never showed up! Lol.)

Dad talking with some Tarahumara Indians visiting our church.

On the last day they were here, Grandma found a picture of her, all of us children (Except James, who was not yet born!), and Abigail. So she wanted to recreate the picture, and put them together!

Before and After

The first picture is four years ago, and the second was yesterday evening. 🙂 Everyone looks so much older! Especially Susy, who is on the far left, on Andy’s lap.

(Oh, and yes, to everyone who is wondering right now, I really do have an aunt who is 5 years younger than me! 😀 )

Grandma and I

My dear Grandma and I. ❤ ❤ ❤

Several of us girls got to help the ladies make tortillas, which was a lot of fun!!

We all had a great time together! 🙂

Well, I should go now. 🙂 Bye!

Love in Christ,

Rosy Joy

Note: It is now after church, and no, they still haven’t put the door in, lol! XD It was cold, and the dog kept coming in, but it was still good! 🙂 😀 

 

 

Trip to Couihila Part 1: Time with Relatives

Standard

For those of you who are wondering, Coauhuila is a state here in Mexico. That’s also the state where I was born!

I am planning to break this trip up into a few parts (I’m not sure how many yet!), and write about it over the next few days. (That includes pictures, of course!)

So, we left a few weeks ago, on Monday, at about 4:00 am. We drove all day (almost), and arrived at my grandparents house at about 4:00 pm. We had a good time visiting, and catching up.

Mom wasn’t too thrilled about this…

This is a funny picture! He looks like he’s hitting her, but he’s not. I’m not sure what he was really doing…

Devotions and singing.

Lots of games.

I found the title to this book really funny!

Here is a quote from my 9 year old aunt Abigail.

“Rosy, you know, you’re lucky! Not everyone gets to hold their aunt on their lap!”

On the next part, I will post pictures of Family Camp!

A Condensed version of the Month of February

A Condensed version of the Month of February

Hi everybody! Can you believe it’s already March?! I mean, we just celebrated New Years! Even though it’s a bit late, here is a simple overview of some of what went on in the Marr family household this last month.

 

Well, probably the main event of this month was the hot dog and Marshmallow roast we did at church a few weeks ago. This is the second time we have done it, but last time, it was to dark to get good pictures. I did this time though, thankfully.

Lucia accidentally set her marshmallow on fire, causing many laughs.

The food table, before and after the roast. It was impossible to keep clean!

The food was good, though!

And so were the marshmallows!

The younger kids played and rode bikes.

And, if you have been following my blog, you probably know about our trip to El Paso.

Andy was the goalie. The ball wasn’t coming, so he decided to rest a bit…

Then, he had a brilliant idea! However, the other team wasn’t too enthusiastic…

 

Well, that’s about all of the important stuff.

What did you do during the month of February? Are you excited about March?
