Wow they are just growing so fast

First pictures are of Lucas and one of his really bad head bumps. He had a giant goose egg and the only way to keep the ice pack on him was to ace bandage it on.
next he is kissing his frog
the other 2 are of jackson outside eating a cracker.

just a couple clips of the boys

couple notes about the video
the april snow: they out grew boots and mittens so we could only stay out for a few minutes. They threw a small fit when we came in. Didnt tape that.

the clip with them laughing is the 2 of them playing "big bear" which is usually what their dad plays with them.. dad wasnt there so lucas and jackson played the part of the bear and were chasing each other. as soon as they see the camera they stop.. but i got as much as i could... oh and the towels are on the arm of the chair due to lucas constantly hitting his head...

the clip of them playing in their jammies.. i had to cut the tape short.. lucas sneezed and it was gross..

Alemitu and Selame‏

We went to the African Childrens Chior last week. Which by the way
was amazing. Okay so we get to the show which is sold out and it is
packed. My mom, Zac, Tom and myself. I am checking out what door to
go in and I see 2 little girls that I immediatly knew!!!! Alemitu and
Selame, they were 2 beautiful little girls that were at Care center in
Ethiopia with the boys. I was positive it was them so I looked up and
there was mom and dad. Dawn and Tom Caldart!!! I could not believe it
I was so excited to see them. We havent seen them since we left Ethiopia
and we bumped into them purely by accident. It made the nite even more
special. They all looked so good and so happy. It made me realize how
much I miss all of our friends from the guest house we stayed with.
We were so lucky to be able to share that experience with the best bunch
of people you could ever meet. It made my day to see those girls again
and Dawn and Tom. They were all doing so amazing.
It was awesome to run into them.

And how cute are these little sweethearts!!!! They are so beautiful and
so fun to be around.
