This & That

Not much has been going on or maybe a lot and I have just gotten used to it.

Let's start with Hannah. She caught a cold from her sister and got very sick. This is the first time Hannah has every really been sick since we got her. I mean a fever and cough like you wouldn't believe that went on for days. But I have to say she is the most pleasant sick kid to be around. With a fever of nearly 103 she was still happy Hannah.

Mahlet, as you know if you read my blog or are related to us turned 11 last Sunday. She is well on her way to being a tween. Issues...Issues...Issues. We were very proud of her this morning at church as all the 5th graders had to recite the Apostles Creed from memory in front of all 3 services. Mahlet knew it and actually got a big prize for reciting it all by herself in her class. I think she got extra points because some of the words are very hard for her to wrap her tongue around.

As for me I am entering stressful month of being on Jury duty. There are 5 cases on the docket this month. That makes me as a mom...stressed.

Happy Birthday Mahlet

I straightened all of Mahlet's hair for her birthday party today and I found this photo on my camera. I think she likes her hair.
We had a little family party last night so got some shots with the girls and grandpa

A little birthday kiss from little sister (Mahlet calls Hannah this a lot)
Birthday wishes....

Mahlet is having her party with her friends this afternoon. It is kind of noisy with 5 10/11 yr. olds.

My Mother

I made quick trip to my home town to visit my mother's grave. Feb. 19th 2007 is when she went to her home in heaven. I just wanted to share some photos of my mother as a child. I really like the last one as she is yelling her brains out...just how I remember her. She was a women and she let her roar be known... I Miss her.

I am a Promise

Hannah performed with the Cherub Choir this morning and did the best job yet. She tends to get a bit distracted when she performs.

We are celebrating Valentines Day and Chinese New Year today. So you guessed it...Chinese food for supper.

Today (Feb. 3rd) marks one year since we received our referral call for Mahlet. Wow, the time has just zipped by so fast.

Cross Dressing

We brought a Lenten cross home to decorate. This is how Hannah thought it would be best to decorate the cross. Complete with tiara on the top of the cross. This gives a whole new meaning to cross dressing.

If you saw my last post you saw that we (Ron & I) straightened Mahlet's hair. Wow it was work but she totally loves it and I have received so many comments about it. She looks so different to me. I miss her curls as the straight hair makes her look so much older.

I apologize for this post it is just a bunch of stuff that is going on in my life.

We applied for Mahlet's US passport today and should have it in time for our trip to Jamaica.

We are really missing Grandma Rovang today as it would have been her birthday.

I'm on jury duty and sent in a request to be excused...the judge called me today and said he would excuse me but then talked me into sticking it out. What is wrong with me???
