In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

Went down to a park in West Seattle near the Fauntelroy Ferry dock. We went with a professional photographer who spent about two hours with us taking tons of pictures. Some candid and some posed. We had a great time and I am sure there will be many pictures I will want. My son in law shot a few behind him. This is one Jon took. All of my Grands. You can click on the picture for a larger view.

By the way, I am very thankful Stan vacuumed the tree. See yesterday's post. I am not fighting little critters in my house

|It took me from Saturday to today, but it is done.|
|Last year when I was out Christmas shopping with my mother, I picked up a box of these ornaments.|
|I told her how much I loved them.|
|And how they reminded me of my childhood.|
|They were my last gift from her.|

On Friday, December 2, Stan and I left our house at 5:30 PM. Went to dinner and then drove to SeaTac to fly to Bethel Alaska for the weekend. We left SeaTac at 9:30 PM, arrived in Anchorage at 12:30 AM. Our connecting flight to Bethel was at 6:40 AM. Arriving in Bethel just before 8 AM. I did not get many pictures taken because baby, it was cold outside!! What I got are below.
|This snowman was standing in a yard of one of Cooper's friends. All of the white beyond is the tundra. AKA a field.|
|A barge on the Kuskoquim river. Size relationship is shown by the mobile home on top of the barge.|
|The frozen Kuskoquim River. One of Tricia's neighbors said he went out with a four foot auger and drilled into the river ice. He broke through right at the four foot measure.|
|These are docks that the fishing boats tie up during the fishing season|
|You see boats all over like this one. Once the river thaws, they will refloat it.|
The real reason for our trip though was because our grandson Ben had a few parts in the Bethel Theater production of Annie.
|Here he is playing the part of Mr. Bundles schmoozing Miss Hannigan.|

|Another New York New York shot.|

He also had an invisible part as a radio announcer.
