alex's homecoming.





As you all saw on the blog, my little brother came home from his mission! Alex gave his homecoming talk at church and after we had friends and family over for some food and hanging out with Alex so they could talk to him and see him. It was a great day! 

Alex showed us how they eat hot dogs in Chile, and I must say.... I don't think I can just have good ol' mustard on my hot dogs like I used too, the avocados on them were just amazing!

  15. I love the set up!! I just spent 2 weeks with Chilean women entrepreneurs (along with 23 other Latinas!). Love my job - the Latin people are so incredible. I bet your brother is happy to be home, but missing the South American hospitality! :)
