Twins Baptism Day
Today was a perfect day. Today the twins chose to be baptized in South Korea as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and receive the blessing of the Holy Ghost.

My eldest sister and I span an age gap of 16 years. Believe it or not, she was a grandma before I even gave birth to Miss Molasses. She has four children (and now one grandbaby), all four married, and all of them went to Mexico on their honeymoon. I loved to snicker about how, of all...

One of the stops during our guided tour with Alma’s LDS Tours was the cenote Ik Kil, even though our time was short. We spent a long time at Ek Balam and Chichen Itza with no complaints. The fascination of these ruins were too compelling to tear ourselves away, so we had just 30 minutes to spend the last...
