"we are wonder woman and that guy"...

our kids made us laugh this week! they love to dress up and recently a friend dropped off a ton of boy costumes which made henry very excited. the costumes include superman, a teenage mutant ninja turtle, a race care driver, a doctor, flash and green lantern.

daph and henry were playing the other day and when they came down all dressed up daphne said, "we're wonder woman and that guy". "that guy", aka green lantern, even wanted his purple ring in the picture so take note.

henry started first grade this week. i can't believe how fast he is growing up. he is so excited because his best friend, malachi, is in his class. the two of them have a great friendship and i am thankful for malachi's sweet heart.

here is our movie star! lauren, one of our awesome babysitters, came over a couple of days last week to hang out with us and the kids. while she was over daphne asked her to paint her fingers and toes. they look beautiful but it encouraged daphne to ask if she could paint my toes. i let her even though it took all the strength i had not to try to do it for her. needless to say there is not a picture to post of the mess that is my pink toes.
ramey is now two months old and is finally 9 lbs. that may still seem huge to many of you but this kiddo has only gained 19 ounces since she came home.

daphne also started school. she and her best friend ellie were going to be in the same class but ellie's family took a great job in texas and so they moved yesterday. it was very sad to watch the girls say goodbye and i know they don't fully understand that they won't see each other again. daphne has a couple of buddies in her class so i am sure she will be just fine but life won't be the same around here without ellie belle!and here is our silly anna. this was snack time today...she likes the faux cheese in these handi snacks. anna is finally saying more and more. my favorites are- "tay too" for thank you and daddia which is russian for daddy.

when i was in houston a couple of weeks ago my niece, lily was saying the funniest thing. she likes the book fancy nancy but with her two almost three year old language abilities she calls the book fancy nasty.

with the olympics going on i thought that combining anna's "daddia" and lily's "fancy nasty"
we could have them rooting for nastia.

oh- here is daphne with her latest goofiness. we have no idea where she got this but it cracks me up!!

that is about all that is happening around here these days. ross is still applying for new jobs and has a phone interview with a different company this afternoon. the only problem is it would mean relocating. we would prefer not to relocate so we are still hopeful about one of the positions here in town. pray that our hearts would align with God's will and that God would make the rough places smooth in all areas of our lives right now.

Lord, you know our hearts and you know our desire but we recognize that your word says that you work all things for the good of those who are called according to your purpose. Lord, your will be done and we ask for peace as we wait on you. thank you for your hand that is always upon us.

Can't tell ya how happy I am to see those costumes getting a second life! They were such favorites of my guys and it's nice to see them being worn again by your guy! Talk about bringing back some memories! I still remember the Christmas that Santa left that Superman suit at our house. Well...time marches on! Your little ones are so precious! I love hearing about their adventures!

Yall are having so much fun! I think it's sweet that Daph wanted to paint your toenails: it's kind of a quasi foot washing, all girled up!
I think yall should relocate to Texas... just a thought...
