BOXES or should I say CAIXAS

We got our boxes yesterday. One of the more exciting days in my life in the past couple of years. It was kinda like Christmas, except you know what you are getting and you really like everything you get and the things you open already have special memories to go along them. So its even better. I would even suggest to all the parents out there, take your child's favorite toy or stuffed animal away from them around early October, wrap it up and give it to them for Christmas.  You'll know for sure they will like it, they will miss it dearly, but when Christmas Day arrives they will be filled with so much joy it will be magical. I know it sounds unorthodox but you never know you could create a new tradition.

60 Minutes & Brazil

What is the capital of Brazil?.....If you said Buenos Aires, you are wrong.  As a former Geography teacher I will not tell you the capital or where Buenos Aires is located. You must find the answer for yourself. 

Last December, 60 Minutes did a little story on Brazil and its growing economy.  Brazil had one of the fastest growing economies last year and it looks to continue this year and even longer as the World Cup and the Olympics will both be in Brazil in the next 5 years. As the Dollar is weakening the Real (pronounced Hey-al) is gaining strength. 

Still don't know the capital of Brazil?  Watch the video and then search Google or maybe you own a globe.

Music to our Ears

Some people might be interested in what we are listening to right now.

Red Mountain Church is located close to downtown Birmingham.  We actually had our wedding reception at the church.  They've been doing exciting things with music, they revamp old hymns. We've been listening to All Things New, the newest album from them. Click on the link and you can listen to all the songs for free.

The Tour Stops Soon

I thought it would be a great idea to give you guys a tour of our apartment. The tour of our apartment ends a little soon because the camera I am shooting with needs to be charged. The thing is the charger to this wonderful camera is in a box somewhere in Brazil being shipped to our apartment.  Back in February when we were packing items around the end of the packing we started just throwing things in. Well, we threw in the cord that charges this camera. So we have the camera we just cant use it till we get the cord to charge it. Right now its a wonderful paperweight.   Hopefully we will get the cord to charge the camera soon and I can finish the tour.
