Heart Transplant

My moms heart kind of stinks...It's always needing fixed and stuff. She has to go to the doctor a lot. And she is tired all the time. It's not very fun.
This week she found out that she might get a new heart.
Now we just have to be patient.

US VISAS - Nothing Short of a Miracle

When I married an Argentine, I knew that it wasn't going to be quite as easy to go and visit my home.
After about 4 months of research and phone calls my mom was finally able to find the right documents that we needed to fill out for the U.S. Visa.
People from outside of the states know, and understand, that asking for a U.S. Visa isn't an easy task. Really it's what we have been calling, "nothing short of a miracle."

Before the security in the U.S. got pumped up it wasn't a requirement for Argentina to have a visa to visit the states, but times have changed.

It now requires a lot of paper work, a trip to Buenos Aires (an 18 hour bus ride from Tucuman) for an interview, and U$S 130 ($510 pesos Argentina).
Thanks to a ton of prayers from our family and friends, we were able to be witnesses to a miracle.
Sergio's visa interview was approved!
The good news is soon us Yankees are getting us out of Latin America for a little while.
We'll keep yah updated.

I used to be creative.

My Mother is constantly reminding me to update my blog.
The only problem is that I have limited internet access.
...and I am kind of loosing my creativity.
Here are a few puns that I found today that I drew before my mission.
Luckily I have grown up since then.
But they still made me laugh.
I wanted to share, maybe you will laugh too.

Pair-a-keet You can't have your cake and eat it too.
Bottom of the 9th with the bases loaded.

Remember this game?
Boo Bees

Chickens don't have nuggets.

Well. I am going to try to get my creative juices flowing and see if I can't squeeze out a few new blogs every once in a while.
None the less.
I hope you smiled.

For Eternity

D&C 132: 19 And again, verily I say unto you, if a man marry a wife by my word, which is my law, and by the new and everlasting covenant, and it is sealed unto them by the Holy Spirit of promise, by him who is anointed, unto whom I have appointed this power and the keys of this priesthood; and it shall be said unto them—Ye shall come forth in the first resurrection; and if it be after the first resurrection, in the next resurrection; and shall inherit thrones, kingdoms, principalities, and powers, dominions, all heights and depths—then shall it be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, ... and shall be of full force when they are out of the world; and they shall pass by the angels, and the gods, which are set there, to their exaltation and glory in all things, as hath been sealed upon their heads, which glory shall be a fulness and a continuation of the seeds forever and ever.

What A Guy

For the last few days I have had a slight head ache...but I will be better in no time.
One of the reasons that I love my husband is because:
Yesterday I said that I was really not feeling well and his response was
"...hum...why don't go you go eat some chocolate."
What a guy hu? It's exactly what every girl looks for.

Yes, We Are Safe

Everything is going great here. Sergio feels really bad that we didn't call you and tell you that we are okay. But really we never even thought about it, We knew that we would be talking to you again on Sunday...and the earthquakes were just yesterday.
We went to a ward emergency preparedness meeting yesterday. They had been planning it for a while so it was a little bit ironic that it was the same day as the Earthquake. It was good. It was just the basics. Mostly stuff that we already knew. That we need to have a back pack...but they told us how to handle earthquakes...which is not to stand in the doorway or under a desk. This is the best safest way:
When the things fall they create a space of safety. So that's what I learned.
So yesterday night I was laying in my bed...and thinking...what would I do right now if there was an earthquake...and I got kind of worried...because now I don't just worry about myself, but I worry about Sergio...and everything else...and because we are on the first floor of our apartment and I didn't really know what the answer was... But I know that we are going to be okay...but I also know that we are going to have more natural disasters...its just that the church wouldn't be true if we didn't have disasters. The prophets said that it was going to happen and they said it was going to happen soon. the end of the Proclamation to the family:
"We warn that individuals who violate covenants of chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand accountable before God. Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets."
Isn´t about time?
