"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

Just a few pictures

Not much to write about tonight, we are doing fine. We are still asking for your prayers for our court date, that we get it THIS WEEK, early this week so Eugene can get home to the boys and we can somewhat of a timeline to getting Alina and I home.


This pretty much sums up Alina. Full of life and a total diva! She will point to my glasses and say 'Mama's' and then to hers and say 'Alina's' :)


The joy of a box of crayons


Dump them out, put them back. Ooh and aah over the colors. :)





She does this really cute thing, I HAVE to get it on video. She will give you a high five and then do a thumbs up and holler 'ALRIGHT!' its so cute! Eugene did it once and now she says it perfectly and laughs. :)

ok, she is way too cute ! So happy your time with her is going well. I hear ya on the hot hallway stuff..we sit on a musty couch with taya in a small room the size of a kitchen and i roast ! I opened the window the other day a crack to stop sweating ! Benji's room is nice and bright and not too hot but taya's i dread. We just got our court date for tuesday so praying you are right behind us. And yes..the train ride was awful. I barely slept at all :) looking forward to it with 2 kiddos too :) hugs !!!
