Oath

Can you see the excitement in their faces?!? We leave the hotel at 7:45 this morning to take our oath at the consulate, which is the next step in getting the girls' visas to travel home!!!!!!
We're having lunch with Lily and Rebecca so we'll have some pix later on. Oh my, the girls are doing so good - thank you, LORD!

"quick feet, quick feet. drop and give me 20."

Look at Her Shine!

We visited the zoo today. Both of my girls are doing amazing, praise Jesus! But would you look at my Kennah girl!


We finally found Belagio's!!!! Dumplings...and rice...and peanut ice cream to die for! It's our new McDonald's, thankyouverymuch!
And real iced tea!!!
Did I mention dumplings?!?




Such cuteness! The girl loves her squeaky shoes.
Stoppin' for a snack ~ and look who's in the stroller!

I see radiant beauty in Miss Kennah!

Monday on the Island

In all the chaos at our medical exam, we failed to see the ENT doc...so we had a redo :)
"Say ahhhh"
My oldest beauty

Kenzie's favorite pastime here


Sisters playing, sharing and lovin'
Our old friend Michelle
And of course, Jordon, our brother in Christ. He was so excited to see the Scripture on the back of Kenzie and my tee-shirt!
We are at Lucy's!
I don't care where we are; just feed me!
Let's eat!

Her new cutest expression
Ahhhhh, iced tea
I guess I'm sleep deprived because I had the worst dream last night. It was a nightmare really. But it made me realize I would lay down my life for my two newest Treasures. Thank you for continuing to pray for us. We are doing awesome!
Today we go to the zoo. It's gonna be 95, but I'm not complaining!
Love ya'll!

Fun in the Sun

Naming siblings. Gosh, I miss them!
Testing Aunt Sheri's underwater camera!
The girl is a fish!
Thank you, Aunt Sheri, for swimming with her!

The two of us, we'll sit on the sidelines, thank you very much!

Just have to throw in a smiling picture of my smallest Treasure.
If the baby won't go to the bed, bring the bed to the baby!
Miss Hollywood. Do you just see a new countenance about her?!? Little Miss Kennah is a hoot!
Why do the girls have to sleep anyway?!? Let's get ourselves down to...
...the pool!
Bird's eye view from our room.
Ya'll, I admit I'm wiped out. We are so close to going home - 4 more days we start the trek! I'm clinging to that! Today we go back to check the TB - it looks fine. And do lunch and shopping on the island. Lucy's lemon iced tea, here I come!
The girls are doing amazing; it's just exhausting running all the time. A simple trip for supplies like water and baby snacks takes us over an hour. But glory to God, He renews my strength every day!
Love you all!

Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. 1 Kinds 8:56

A Quick Shout

Just wanted to say good morning and thank you for praying! Please don't stop now. The girls truly are blossoming. Bedtime last night was hard. Both girls screamed so after a few minutes I rocked Kasidi to sleep. She's stopped taking her bottle...but I'm still trying! Kennah was still upset, so I picked her up, and for the first time she clung to me! :) :) I cuddled her and whispered in her ear, then laid her down, and she fell right to sleep. They are so tired! We are so off schedule!

Kennah weighs 24 lbs and Kasidi weighs 23. They both wear 18 months clothes, but I'm believing that's going to change very quickly for Kennah!
This is us taking the escalator down the subway (so we don't have to cross the street - eeeeeek!!!!) But I'm tellin' ya, you haven't truly lived till you've experienced a squatty with a baby strapped to your belly :)
She loves to 'read' and she loves her glasses, upside down for comfort, of course.
This is where we're roughin' it.
We have a fun day planned. Thank you again for sending your comments and emails of encouragement and prayers! We so need them! I couldn't do this without Sheri ~ she's been a lifesaver!
Honey, Kuyler, Kolton, Kooper, Kayden, Kambry, Kaeleb and Kinley Grace, I LOVE YOU!!!

In all these things we are more than conquerers through Him who loved us. Rom 8:37
