This was all of us last night at a dinner the hotel put on for all its guests. There was singing and even Santa showed up. I will post him later... Enjoy!

Last night Teddy and Gabby joined in and sung Christmas carols with the staff at the hotel. The guy just started playing the music and Ted and Gab just started singing. It's actually a weird feeling singing Christmas songs on a tropical island with no snow! :). I don't think they sang "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..." :D

Today we all went out diving. M and T, in their advanced divers course, chose to do photography. So we all got suited up and tried to get a family photo underwater. BUT to my sadness, the currant was way too strong for all of us to stay together. So Chris took this picture of the five of us in the water. (Yes, Mersades is in there... you just have to look for her legs!). We did get some cool underwater pics but they are on another camera. Those will come at a later time. Have a great day! :)

Here is just a quick update on our vacation in Manado. Mersades and Teddy are getting their "Advanced Divers" certification. Gavin is getting his PADI certification. Chris is taking the class with Gavin and Gabby and I just finished our "Bubbler" program. So now we are all officially "divers". but as is always the case, I did not get any pictures of me in my gear and since gabby was with me, she didn't get any pictures in her diving gear also. Oh well... next time... ;)

I just wanted to share with you a bread basket that was made for our Thanksgiving dinner at the Lupe. We had dinner with a few of our dear friends in Tembag. The night was lots of fun. If you are reading this, I want to know we are thankful for each and everyone of you!! God's greatest blessings to all of you!

Just a quick post of some Halloween pictures... There is a big adult party the Friday before Halloween, and then one for the kids on Saturday. We all had a good time... epically my oxymoron.... my "Angel" :D "Daisy Duke" won a prize for her costume... mostly because of the hair! ;) I still have the touch from 20 years ago! :)

So the morning after I posted my last house update, life carried on as normal as it can here. I got the kids to school, did my bahasa homework then went to bahasa class. A friend of mine across town wanted a video, that we had, so I took it to her. We had lunch and then I stayed at her house until I had to get the kids from school.
Around 2 o'clock, I made the comment that she had a great view of my "dual" colored roof! We both just laughed and rolled our eyes! So at 2:30 I left to go get the kids from school. The Roof was still a "dual" color roof!
On Thursday's, I teach the kids volleyball after school. When that was finished, we went to the Coffee Shop to have an early dinner. Momma didn't have anything ready to do for dinner!
After dinner, we took the 5 o'clock bus home. When I got off the bus, much to my surprise, I now see a ONE color roof!!! I was totally shocked!! On two issues.... 1. The roof is all one color!! and 2. The time it took to do it! Remember I left my friends house at 2:30 and it was still a "dual" colored roof!!! It was all finished in 2 1/2 hours!!! I am going to make a wild guess that that was the fastest anything was or will be done on the house!!!
I guess the "Love Shack" title will have to wait....
But wait......... As I walk around the back of the house...... IT'S STILL A "DUAL" COLORED ROOF!!
Those boys sure didn't let me down! ;) I have the "Love Shack" in the BACK!!
Hmmm, Now I wonder what the natives will think when they walk the trail behind the house??? :D
Still singing... "Love Shack, Baby Love Shack!",

Actually we knew we were going to have two colors on our roof because of issues..... BUT they told us it was all going to be red in the front and green in the back! I guess they didn't want to open another can of worms by taking the back red metal sheets off the back of the house! Who knows what they would have found??? ;)
But now, to top off the "dual"colored roof.... Look what else they are putting on the house!!!
Here is what our roof looks like from the top of the street..... Enjoy!!
Now if anyone wants to complain about their house, BRING IT ON!!! :D
As in Chris' favorite saying, "You just can't make this $h!t up"!!! And my new motto is "You just have to laugh! If not, you will go crazy!!"
Love Shack, Baby Love Shack!! That's where it's AT!!!

Well the house is coming along... I have been told it should be done.... BY CHRISTMAS! With this speed, I am glad I an not building a mansion! ;) Oh well... it will happen when it happens.... I am going to guess my cousins house (4000+ square feet) will be totally finished by the time this one room will be done! And I started before she did!!! Anyone feel my pain.... ;). JK (that's Just Kidding... mom! :D)

I know..... Let's take the girls to the salon to get their nails and hair done, and then dress up for a "fancy" dinner at the Lupa Lelah! Perfect! Not too much work for mom, and the girls will love it!! Now just to sell it to Gabby!
Well the idea was sold, BUT, we had to invite the boys from her class... No, not to the salon, but to the dinner. Well how hard could that be??? (sigh) I know boys, I actually have two! But what the heck? It's for the children.... or Gabby... :)
First off.... To the salon...
Hmmm, Does Gabby look happy???

So I packed them up, and waited for this night to happen! I totally couldn't contain my excitement on having to put these "Oh so comfortable polyester clothes" on! I must say Chris was a good sport, and played the role to a tee! Scary!!! And my bestie... Michelle My Belle... joined in on the fun! So without waiting any longer... Here are the....
