It's Photo Time!

I've been behind on my photo posting, as it's been a bit busy around here.
We celebrated Thanksgiving on Friday instead of Thursday, as the Lovely Mona had class on Thursday and wouldn't be home until late. Our extended family: Bert Leigh, Tía Sue, Eric Jackson, la Familia Green y la Familia Maduro and Venetia Briggs, a visiting scholar at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, celebrated Thanksgiving with style here at la Rectoría. Chompita was reasonably well behaved and did very little begging. We were having so much fun talking and eating that I didn't take many photos, but what I did take are posted below:

Sunday was the First Sunday of Advent. The Lovely Mona played her flute for the Offertory Anthem. To set the season apart, we are using Morning Prayer with Holy Eucharist. It keeps everyone on their toes! Next Sunday is Mother's Day, so there will be lots of photos!

In the evening, the Lovely Mona and I went to Albrook to Glanville, Marlene, and little Kelsey Green's beautiful new home to celebrate Joyce Green's birthday. We had quite a time! We were all surprised when three musicians appeared to sing Las Mañanitas and then entertained us all for about an hour. There was dancing and singing and lots to eat. Here are some photos of the party:

Today is my day off, and it's a holiday as the Government moved the Independence from Spain celebration from Friday to today, so I'm laying low and resting.
