Missionary Smile!

My brother used to always tell us “Put on your missionary smiles!” as we pulled up to a church while on furlough.

(Easier said then done when you’ve been stuffed into a car with all your closest family members for most of the day, and every smells like potatoe chips and beef jerky.)

(Road food. Gross.)

Anyway… recently several churches have asked for an updated family picture. So we put on our missionary smiles and snapped one.

Don’t we look so sweet?

And then, we took this one, which I like better.

Its definitly a better potrayal of our personalities.
(Plus, I look thinner in this one.)

    The second one is definitely more fun, but I think for the sake of “normalcy” you should distribute the first… 🙂

    So sweet! Hope all the preparations for your furlough aren’t overwhelming. I am starting to get excited about our time in the U.S. too. Will you guys return to Paraguay for another term?

    Awesome…and I like the second one better too. I was always the MK who never looked at the camera and messed up the family photo. LOL.
