Pancakes, Giggles, and an Interview

But first, look at this video that CBS broadcasted of the dire situation all across Haiti. Remember the Hands and Feet Project...also in Haiti, plummeted by Gustav? Well, then Hanna and Ike hit after that. Craziness. Check out Brock's blog to see the latest. Please do what you can, if you can.

Watch CBS Videos Online

We have so much to be thankful for, esp. in light of that. Now for some home videos that show you just what we have to be thankful for...

Night before last, Grady had the request of pancakes for supper. Sounded good to us, so we all worked at it. Mama made the batter and then Hadley, Eissa, and Mama washed dishes while Grady and Daddy (mostly grown up) made the pancakes. Cass just sat there watching and being cute.

Giggles all around yesterday at lunch.

And this is Eissa yesterday afternoon. The way she says some things is just so very cute. I had to capture some of it the best I could. She's such a cute little mess.

Oh, and yes...eissa's flip-flops are mismatched. They are hand-me-down loners from Hadley and do just fine here around the house. We are getting some new flip-flops (all of us) at the end of the month. Just wanted to acknowledge that...I'm sure some of you will notice.

Also, the video is pretty bad quality and you can't hear her very well. But, flip-flop, for instance, is 'bip-bop'...cute huh? And her 'water' and 'I love you' sound very much the same. Sometimes we think she is being so sweet and loving when she is really just asking for something to's funny. :)

I'll be packing again non-stop this weekend while Joel is here to be with the kids...he will also be trying to fit in other things to get ready for the move. We hope to be finalizing where we are going to stay from the first of November (when the family that owns this house returns) until mid-December (when we will be able to take over the house we are moving into for the next year). Please keep us in your prayers concerning that. Thanks. Have a great weekend!!

Cole and I just watched the 3 family video's! He said "they are a fun family!" Really cute video clips of Eissa talking and the kids in the kitchen helping and the whole family laughing at the dinner table! Fun stuff!

Love to your sweet family!

How's the packing going? Have you figured out temporary housing for the period between your two houses? I wish we lived closer and I could come help you pack up your casa! I'm guessing I could get some great packing tips from you since you have moved 11 times in the past 7 1/2 years. That is impressive!

We had to push back our move to the new project house another 8 days. We still have so much to get done on the house this week. I'm praying God leads you to a great temporary place to live! Also praying for energy as you tend to the kids and try to pack up your stuff! Moving is not for wimps! Love ya!

Report tonight on Indians in Brazil being protected from being witnessed to by youth with a mission so that the missionaries won't destroy their culture. Our interest was initially peeked because they showed a pilot flying over the Indian villages in Brazil (thought of you), showing what areas the government was protecting from Christians. Infant killing is rampant in these parts, too. See if you can find the interview online, I think you'd be interested. (abc news).
