Holy Land

Okay, as many of you know, Dallen will be turning 8 this November. So, for the past 4 months I have been trying to work out the details of his Baptism. After much back and forth, advice, and general hand-holding from the leaders of our church in Galilee, we have finally nailed it down. Dallen will be baptised in the River Jordan on November 5.

We would love to have anyone come and join us. We had originally planned to do this closer to Christmas, but on the advice of the leaders in the area we moved it to his birthday. Apparently Christmas time in the Holy Land is cold, twice as expensive, crowded, and slightly more dangerous (more?!) So as cool as that would have been - this make more sense.

I realize that this would be a HUGE trip for most of you, so don't think that we expect anyone to be there. But if you just so happen to have a bunch of time on your hands and a couple of thousand dollars laying around....(stay home and just send me a check) HA HA HA! No seriously, please feel welcome to share in this with us. November 5 is a Wednesday and we plan on staying through the week-end. Think about it! Calvary, the Garden of Gethsemane, Christ's Tomb! It is going to be awesome! Totally once in a life-time. Which is why we are telling you all now, so plans can be made.

Did I mention this is once in a life-time? But really, no pressure!

Oh Man,
It would be totally thrilling. I guess I could have my kids baptized in the Jordan river here (Its probably a bio-hazard though). Oh, I'm so excited for Dallan. Wish we could really be there. Maybe if Ed McMan droppes by......

Ok, Linda, THIS IS YOUR MOM CALLING (Did I mention that I've left no fewer than 12 messages in the past three months??)! Please take pity on this old lady who had to hire Dolly to create and tend her blog... and call me on the phone??? Please? Dad and I are collecting miles and might be able to wrangle the trip, but we need to talk to you in person. Plus, we want to connect when you are out here for Robert's wedding.

Much hugs and smoochies from your darling mother....
