Moving Day: Tuesday November 20th

I never thought this day would come...moving into a new place, a place that Heather and I could call our own...even if it is only for a year. This truck, this ugly yellow truck as PJ would say, did its job.

We got a desk & a bed from Heather's parents & a bed. My parents gave us a dinning table and the dresser. It was very generous of them and for that we are grateful to God.

Elijah was so helpful that we rewarded him his own room.

Heather and Derrick, THE BOY COUSIN, messing around for the camera. Thanks again for the help. We praise God for you.

After we got everything in the house, we took PJ, Francis, Elijah, and Derrick to the petting farm at downtown San Juan Capistrano located by the mission.

There we saw and met new friends...

...Mr. Donkey...

Mr. Piggy, whom we found out that their names are...

Oreo is the black pig and the white one is Ruby! They had a ball in their play pen. Oreo would jump on top of it, smashing it, the would run around in a circle and then go back to the ball to smash it. Oreo did this a couple more times then started chasing around Ruby. Well, he tried. Ruby just stood her ground and they started to grunt at each other. After some more grunting they separated. Oreo went back to the ball and Ruby went back to the stack of hay to look pretty for her audience.

We then got hungry so we drove in traffic to go to Stonefire. Let's just say that this was worth the trip. We got the usual BBQ and Lemon Butter tri-tip and BBQ & lemon garlic chicken with Caesar salad and bread sticks. We spiced it up by adding a mesquite BBQ pizza, half tri-tip, half chicken. It was delicious! We were so hungry that we forgot to take pictures. Sorry...but if anyone wants to go, I found one in Costa Mesa off Broookhurst, west of the 405.

After that, we went for desert at Coldstone.

Heather, Elijah and I ended up sharing a strawberry blonde ice cream creation. We all had our own spoon. It was so tasty!

To recap...we had a great day of moving stuff into our home with the help of friends and family, followed by a fun time meeting new friends, to end it with dinner and desert. What a blessing to have fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to come to our aid. We are very grateful for their help and we know that God will repay them accordingly with his riches. Praise God for his grace and good times! We are looking forward now to settle in and eventually move in together. Only 20 more days to go...

To Eleazar & Heather,

Hi, this is Tita Elvie I just want to greet both of you Congratulation & Happy Wedding day on Dec. 15.
I have a short message for both of you, getting Married is easy, but having a happy and successful marriage is not easy you have to work at it. Remember Marriage is a life time commitment. It is a serious thing for both of you to solemnly vow before God that you will love each other until death parts you and remember God takes vows seriously. When we make a vow, you must keep it.
There will be problems that will going to arise in your marrige life but remember DON'T or NEVER, NEVER, used the word "DIVORSE AS A WEAPON IN AN ARGUMENTS" Matthew 19:6

Tita Elvie & family

I wish I could have helped you guys move. That was our thing when we were growing up. El, you remember that, right! We always had the fridge. Hey, my phone was changed and I lost your #'s so you need to call me so that I can get that in my phone so I can call y'all.
