Comin' down the Home Stretch

Since I'm only going to December 25th I feel like I've finally made it to the home stretch.  At least that is what I'm telling myself, LOL  (Can I say that having had to play catch up with this project, I am convinced that it would have been easy peasy if I'd done it day by day for the remainder of the month.  Maybe next year)

Day 19

This was another marathon day.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the 1234 Frame.  I did some adjusting to get it to have thinner inner and outer walls.  It's pretty easy to do that sort of thing when you select and ungroup the image and then move things around until you like it.  I cut it from some Wood Veneer that I had picked up at my LSS.  You can find it here if you are interested.

As you can see, things keep getting simpler as I go along.  I am still fighting a ridiculous chest cold and so am still not feeling my best.  Really hoping to be back up to speed soon.

Our time at the Migrant camp was great.  We even came home with a very adorable kitten (who, as it turned out had ringworm which she shared, but we won't talk about that)  It was amazing to see some of the same families there that we'd seen a couple years previous. The kids had a ball batting at the pinata and enjoying the presents of candy, dolls, balls and other fun things that we brought.

The men worked really hard, putting up the first half of the trusses on the youth center we were building.  We were so blessed to have had no major injuries during the whole trip. (there were a few hammered thumbs, but nothing serious)

Day 20

I didn't end up getting a whole lot of photos on this day, but what I lacked in quantity I gained in quality.  That is to say I was able to capture one completely amazing sunset.

The other ladies helped shuck shrimp (pounds and pounds of it to feed 35 people!) while I napped.  Yep, I was a slacker. But I did make salsa earlier in the day so I hope that counts for something.  I made a LOT of my signature Pico De Gallo salsa on this trip!

At the end of the evening, the roof workers took a load off and watched the sun set.

I found some seashells and starfish that the kids had collected from the beach earlier in the day and felt they needed to be documented too.

And finally, yet another amazing sunset.  I can hardly believe how many wonderful sunsets I was able to capture on this trip.  It was just one after another.

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you on Monday with some sneakaroonies!
