Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

...but the water's so delightful.

Barbies taking a swim
a sink full of suds and toys

A  little over a week ago we gave our adoption testimony at The Cabin (our high school youth outreach).  We shared our story, some photos and videos, and some worship and prayer time.  Afterwards, the thoughtful teens at The Cabin gave our girlies the most adorable (and soft!) pandas.  

Today Joseph participated in the Spelling Bee at school.  Joseph lasted until nearly the end.  Only 5 spellers made it longer.  The word that tripped him up?  FLAMMEOUS.  Great job, Joe...we're proud of you!

That is one giant snowman! Looks like the little gals were having a bunch of fun with the Barbies and toys in the water!
The huge Pandas were great! Sure you guys did a wonderful presentation! Remember when you did the same for Maimie at the church!
Joseph--congratulations on doing so well in the Spelling Bee! I tried to find FLAMMEOUS in my Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary and couldn't find it! Bet you will never forget how to spell it though!
In Christian Love,
Grandma & Grandpa

Well, I wouldn't have been able to spell that word either, but good job!

I am ready for Spring too. For the girls to play with water OUTSIDE.
