Cinco de Mayo

Although we are together and see the other missionaries here on the compound alot, we never get together just for fun.  We are usually in meetings together discussing business issues, or in team meetings giving ministry reports or strategizing on how to be a more effective ministry.  But we are very rarely together just for FUN!  So Eric and Melissa Miller, our surgeon and his wife, decided to have a little fun get together for Cinco de Mayo.  Now to be completely honest, I have no idea what the holiday really is about, but when Melissa called me with the idea I was all for getting together with the other missionaries, having fun and eating some tacos!!

Here are just a few pictures of the evening.

We had quite the Taco Bar!!
Maracas the kids all made.
And what Cinco de Mayo party would be complete with a Mexican mustache!?
Along with the Taco Bar there was a "photo booth" set up complete with props!!  You will notice that we missionaries are very uptight and serious.....
The host & hostess Eric & Melissa.  When Eric is not wearing a Mexican 'stache he is wearing a surgeon's mask!
Eliza, Aunt Cheryl (who just had a grandson born back in the States a couple weeks ago) and Ansley were the first ones to try out the "photo booth".  This was Ansley's first social event and she even got to hold a maraca!
Some of the ladies wearing their 'staches! 
All the MK's had a blast!!!  My kids had been looking forward to the party all week!
The Tuesinks, our maitainance man and guesthouse director.  They are both invaluable to the ministry here.

The Beechams just arrived and are helping with maitainance for 4 months.
This picture cracks me up!!  Dr. John & Susie Briggs.  They are just too cute!

Eliza wanted a picture with the hat!

Me and my 2 big girls.
There were several others who couldn't come and several medical people who had to leave early and go to the hospital.  But it was a great time and we definitely will have to do it again next year!
