Cheeky kids :)

 Looks like our boy is left handed . That is a first for our family. As soon as I handed him the pen and notebook he was thrilled ! He picked it up right and after a bit of practice was scribbling away :)
 We also bought some playdoh to spice things up a bit :) He loved to cut it into pieces. It was fun for about 20 mins until that evil little laugh came out and he started shoving it in his mouth! eek ;) we put it away after that ...
 How beautiful is this little boy of ours ?? We are so in love with him. (that is Taya's blankie btw)
Love my little Taya baby :) I HATE sitting in this dingy room , sweating, but HAPPILY endure to spend some quality with my baby girl :) She smiles when she sees us and reaches for me ! Makes it all worth it , to give her a bright spot in her day out of the crib. She eats potatoes, beets and some odd blended food each meal. She doesnt chew yet or drink from a cup, but thats ok..we will take it slow and like a new baby she will learn everything in time. She has had a bit of bad luck but God has been watching her and keeping her safe :)

Notice the fire/burn marks on the wall behind me? oye. That is scary to think about.
 Benji lovs to open the little backpack bags and discover the toys of the day :)
 I would love to buy crib toys for all the kids in Tayas group. I dont know if they would use them but it would be so wonderful for the children. They have nothing in their cribs to occupy them all day.....
 Mama sweating on the lumpy , old couch. Wish we could buy them a new one ....I had to crack a window!
Beets :) yummy. She actually seems to like them. The mystery blended food -not so much.

COURT DATE IS TUESDAY !!!!! :):) SO happy.

Love getting the updates :)

What cuties they are! I miss it there.

you should go to the Potato House to eat before you leave, and to Sir Lancelots for pizza, it was so good :) I think we got (me and Nancy) the mozzarella and tomato, and it was SO gooooood ;)
Along with a stella if you like beer. It's a cool 'knight' themed place, but make sure you go downstairs to the neat part!

Have you seen Alexander (the big one) yet? Oh, I hope you atleast meet him, and go on an excursion or two :)
