boys 18 month photos

Getting photos of the boys together is nearly impossible when in a open room with equipment everywhere. Lucas wasnt happy with any of us since we werent allowing him to grab all the wires and lights, so no pictures of him smiling. Its easier to just chase them with a camera in the back yard or the park and snap whatever we can.
We want to try to attempt again with their Packers jerseys in a couple months hopefully that one will go a bit more smooth.

I had just gotten them dressed and ready to start the day.. figures.. soaked within seconds hee.. it was fun.. and jackson was just screaming its raining its raining.. he is starting to talk pretty WELL (sorry cindy :) You will have to crack that whip with me on these things i dont pay attention :) Lucas will catch up in no time.

Hey everyone

The boys are doing great. I want to get more videos out here but when they see the video camera they quit whatever they are doing to get at the camera.

The boys are both teething again so some of the pictures they just dont look so happy but they are really hurting.

I want to say a special Happy Birthday to my Aunt Mary.

Oh my gosh I cannot believe it.. a year has gone by since we brought our little guys home. Yet it seems like I have known them all my life. That's just the way it is when you have kids. I put together a slide show of some pictures of our little boys homeland. I cannot wait to go back again. I miss it so much. There are also some pictures of our trip home with the first few days back here with them.
the first song is Ethiopian children singing a Ethiopian folk song. The second song doesn't 100% fit our situation since we did have a kid you will understand when you hear the beginning of the lyrics I just thought it was such a cute song i had to put it on.
Happy Gotcha day boys!!!!!! We love you and we thank God everyday for blessing us with each of you.

PS If you want to see some really cool pictures of Ethiopia and our trip click on the blog to the right that says OUR GIRLS, OUR LIFE. She is a wonderful photographer and traveled with us. Its really really awesome.
