Thankful to have sweet moments with grandparents

Thankful for new cousins

Adam runs his first race since high school ( The Flying Feather 4 miler)

Thankful for new Thanksgiving traditions

Thankful for the miracle of a little girl brought home safely

Thankful for Christ & our eternal salvation
Phillippians 4: 6-7 " Do not be anxious for anything, but in every situation, by prayer & petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God , which trancends all understanding, will guard your hearts & your minds in Christ Jesus . "

Since the weather has turned colder we have moved our Haiti play dates inside at McDonalds. The girl's had a BLAST. The best part was that they were able to play along with all their sibs too while the mom's ( & Adam :) got to chat. I am so thankful to have this group to connect with here locally. It is awesome ! Thank you Lord for blessing us with more friends . Thank you for bringing these girls home safely into loving families where they are sure to have their bellies filled on Thanksgiving.

The whole gang & their sibs

Yarn Braids

Beaded beauty


Vania falls asleep on the side of the tub after the long process of removing the yarn extensions :)

back to natural

Well, I have to say I loved the yarn extensions. They lasted about 2 1/2 weeks. Easy to take care of, versatile with styling & easy to keep all the "stuff " out of her hair. The last week I trimmed up the yarn to her shoulders and added beads. She loved flipping her hair back & forth to make noise with her beads :) We probably could have gone for a third week , but I wanted to get a trim in before Thanksgiving and knew it would not hold up that long with all the flipping & wrestling etc . that a three year old likes to do :) I also don't think it would be a good style for summer with all the dirt, sweat & swimming. Maybe we'll try it again in spring. Hopefully her hair will grow a lot over the winter so we can just have all natural longer braids.

Bug Lady

Zane holding a preying mantis

This is actually only the exoskeleton of a tarantula. Oh yeah, she brought a live one too !

The infamous hissing cockroach
(according to the bug lady, a great pet)

Vania is a very brave little girl ! The home school co -op had a pets class & invited the " bug lady" to visit. She had all sorts of interesting creepy crawly critters. And where was Miss V? Well , right beside the bug lady of course. Zane enjoyed them too . He was there to take pictures for his Current Events project. It was fun watching all the little eyes getting as big as saucers and the squeals every time the bug lady pulled a new bug out to show them. She will have to kill spiders for daddy in mommy's absence :)
