remember the pictures of little tiny carlos? https://carajanewelch.wordpress.com/2010/06/02/baby-betran/

he’s turned into a chub.

he’s a healthy baby.  i’m so proud of yoslena to see the mom that she has become.  i know that she has help from her grandma, but she really takes care of her baby.  i pray that he will go to school, become educated and one day take care of his momma.

we have this dang rat that’s coming in our house and stealing our food…. really disgusting.  apparently randomly leaving a bucket under the hole that the rat is entering is a good way to catch him.

here’s the story of what happened on kendall’s blog along with some funny pictures: http://kendallblackwood.blogspot.com/2010/12/theres-rator-more.html

only bad news is there are more… don’t worry we’ve set up more traps and are waiting.

PTL!  i was able to sell negrita finally.  she’s pretty much staying in the family though.  she moved across the street.  i’m really happy that she ended up in the hands of some people that really needed her and will take care of her.  her new owner jose is a sweet old man that works a farm.

goodbye negrita.

pray for me as i pray about what i will be doing with the money, if i’m able to get a new vehicle, etc.

and thanks for all the prayers that i would find a buyer.
