Fancy Schmancy!

We got the front part of our house tiled about a month ago, but I just now finally took a picture of the finished product. :) So here is a little summary of how it all went...

Here are the guys, delivering the tile

Tile, baseboards, etc.

This is our living room before...

First pieces...

Mixing cement


Setting in the center piece...


Sliming in the grout...

Washing it off

More grout...

And this is what it looks like now!

Wow!! Pretty nice, huh?

This was all made possible by Pastor Frank from Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your sacrificial giving!

Out n' About with Cassia!

In El Centro

Taqueria Los Angeles!!
Me and Miss Cassia

Look at me! I'm packin' heat!

Cassia in the Zocalo
                      Mmm! I love these things!                                             

Me and Cassia having fun eating our bolis (mexican popsicles)

Nicole, Bethany, and Cassia posing for our CD cover :P

I love you, you love me :)

Cassia, Mannie, and Beth... hubba hubba :))

This was the only water that Cassia felt safe drinking... rain! haha


Krispy Kreme! Mmm!

Ooh we were SO tired... so Cassia fell asleep on my lap, and I tried to sleep too... but it didn't really work out because I don't know what exactly was to blame, whether it was the bus driver, the brakes, or the traffic around us, but my head kept slamming into the seat in front of us! So sleep was kind of impossible for me... Haha :P

We have had a lot of fun being crazy with Cassia :) Yesterday we went downtown and walked around all day, I think we walked 50 miles. We had a good time though!

In our last post I said that we weren't advanced enough to have a Pinkberry in Puebla. 
Well, look what is new in our local mall?! Moyo!

It was sooo good!

This mall is my new favorite place ;)

It's Fun Being a Kid

Thursday afternoon we went over to our assistant pastor's house. Sis. Elvira wanted to make Mexican food. 
So here is Nicole cooking the cheese for the molotes...

This is how we do it in Mexico...
We can't just turn on the sink for good water, we have to get it out of this jug. 
And believe me!! It's a LOT harder than it looks! 
...Many a time (in my inexperienced days of COURSE) have I dumped water all over the floor!
"HA! I MEANT to do that, okay!"

While we cooked, Austin and Javier wrestled.

Smash the dough into a tortilla, then fill it with goodies.

Here's a molote!

Nicole and Javier

After we ate we decided we wanted ice cream. So we went to find some. 
(Look at the muddy roads!! They are all torn up because they are in the process of paving them. 
We are excited about getting our road done, but the mud is a pain.)

I came prepared to have fun!
I know it looks like I'm shouting in the puddle, but I'm not...really.


We found a place where they sell ice cream.
We tasted it and...well it wasn't that great but we bought some anyways because we were desperate. :))
Really I wanted some Pinkberry or Coldstone...but heyyy...
We're not that advance yet!

Austin puddle-jumping.

He jumped in a puddle that was a little deeper than he expected it to be.
...and somehow soaked his face. Hopefully this water is just brown because of the mud...

Aawww! You KNOW it looks fun!!



Then a bum came while we were waiting for our ice cream. 
He was in an extremely talkative mood. He wouldn't go away.

And Nicole got scared. Ha!

I asked him if I could take a picture with him and he said yes. So I go to lean in...and he grabbed my arm and pulled me over to where my head was touching his!! Aaah!! All I could think was ..."Umm...LICE?!" 
It was hilarious! Anyways, I invited him to church he said he's gonna come on Sunday...I just hope he comes sober. :)

Walking back home with our bucket of ice cream...

Then we turned on music...and we turned it up a little bit...

Javier making paper boats...

Then we went outside and floated them. It was just. So. Fun. ;)

Then we jumped in more puddles...

And sat in the middle of the street and watched Austin splash around


And this is how we cope during our rainy season in Puebla, Mexico!
