Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

We're In Mississippi

We had a safe trip to Mississippi today; no rain, not much traffic, but I found out that it's a much longer trip when you have a 7 yr old and a 4 yr old along for the ride! Ashton and Brianna have been having lots of fun exploring new things here at my sister's.

Ashton's favorite has been the fireplace. He loves backing up to it and getting his back side all toasty and warm. A rocking chair in front of it works pretty well too!


Brianna has made a new friend here. His name is Biskit and he likes anyone who has a lap! The only trouble is, Brianna's lap doesn't stay still for too long at one time!


Later,
Betty

Makes me want to go light one! Maybe tonight.... Bisket looks like a sweetie and I am sure is happy with whatever lap time she will give him. Glad you had a safe trip!

Betty,
These are really cute pictures. That fire does look inviting I miss my fireplace but not the work of cleaning it.

Enjoy!!
Great pics. Lovely fireplace and such a sweet pic of the little guy looking at it and Biskit seems quite content with what little lap time he gets.
