Lupe and Mary's Feast...

The great thing about our feasts is that friends and family want to get in on the action.  And that's fine by me!  Their feast was the day immediately following Jacob's...hmmm, think there's a connection?  Lupe is one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet.  She's generous and thoughtful.  I've never met a harder worker- I do believe she could keep up with my Dad- only she would go much faster.  We think alike on so many things and that's a rarity- I hope she sees that as a compliment.  Lupe is attentive to the small children- always making time to listen to them and ask them questions.  And of course the children love her to pieces.  As we all do.  Mary(17y) is a lot like her Mom.  Sweet, generous and thoughtful.  She's very intelligent and a deep thinker.  Mary has a good sense of humor.  She's very mature for her age.  And very tender hearted. She wears her cowboy boots with pretty dresses and loves animals- she has a blind horse that she barrel races.  That would make her very trust-worthy dontcha think?  She makes her morning tea with milk instead of water and well... we just love her to pieces.

They made a Mexican feast- imagine that!  Wow, was it good.  The best I've ever had.  They made flour tortillas and meat to put on them.  The meat wasn't spicy- but very flavorful- with tiny pieces of potato in it.  There was Spanish rice and some kind of chipotle shrimp- which was amazing!  That was very spicy.  Her pico was incredible- with avocado.  And all the other fixin's.  And someone else did the cooking!  How cool is that?  It was a GREAT feast!

Just came across your blog. I am a Christian (and quilter) in RI. I was reading and my daughter Melissa was standing behind me and said, "That's Mary! She was in my cabin at DOV camp!" What a small world!
