Fortuna With the Marchbanks

We spent the week after Christmas with the Marchbanks....We had So. Much. Fun!
Stephanie, Cherie, and me (Bethany) stayed up until 4, 5, 6 every night...
(Nicole didn't because she was "too tired"...Ha!)
We had delicious homemade food everyday, Chai tea sweetened with brown sugar, and snow in the middle of the night! We got to experience what it is like to live in hippie land. Very interesting! 
I'm so happy we got to visit the Marchbanks; we love and appreciate them and their church so much!

Here they be ;)

Shopping... :)) 
(I think we are hugging the plus sizes? Lol!)

The Marchbanks and the church in Fortuna treated us so special and were so generous.

Aww...this was fun! 
Cramming into Sis. Marchbanks' little car. :)

Stephanie and Geneva. 
This lady came running across the aisle and randomly said "Hey! You ever heard of Louisiana?!" She told us she was from New Orleans and raised four kids there. Back in New Orleans they do all kinds of "weird" stuff like speak French (and she did a demonstration for us--HA!). Stephanie asked if she could have her picture taken with her and she agreed. She then asked to see it. When she saw it, she let out a wordy dirty and shouted, "I've got too much lipstick on!" She pulled out a tissue and did a jig while wiping her lips. 
Needless to say, that was a fun little shopping trip. ;)

Bro. Marchbanks...

Hahahhaah!! Nicole looks a little out of place...."where am I?"

Awww....I can't wait to see you guys again!!! We had so much fun spending time together...Thank you for your generosity and hospitality. Hopefully we'll get to see you all again soon!
**Special thanks to Cherie for helping my poor Alzheimer's brain extract all these memories.**
