On Thanksgiving day we were at our friends' house, the Wards, in Richmond, VA.  Alyson's family lives in the area, although they are originally from New Jersey.  Her sister's husband, also from New Jersey, mentioned that his childhood friend now lives in Tucson and is the assistant Principal at a Christian school.  Well, his friend is our own Jeff Jones at Cornerstone Christian Academy!  It is indeed a small world!  Coincidence?  I think NOT!


This is the fabulous Tammy Bland!  She gave me a gorgeous Christmas/Birthday haircut, that I love, by the way.  She and husband Marty live near Charlotte in Lincolnton, NC.  For those of you who know the Blands, he is the 3rd child of Steve and Judy.  We got to see them a few times along with their very cute little children.  We were impressed beyond belief by their hearts for kids and their willingness to provide foster care for some sweet babies in need.  We went down to Columbia with them one Saturday in December to see Judy (Steve was working out of the country) and the infamous OLD house.  What a project!
