Anna has been especially sweet and becoming more of a help and a blessing with each passing day. She loads and unloads the washer by herself and has even started sweeping the floors! The other day she woke up a little before Lydia so I let her come out with me. I gave her her little play makeup case while I did my makeup. When she finished she looked at me and said, "Princessa." THIS is what she looked like:
She offered to share with me, but I declined. (Excuse the hair...we hadn't gotten around to that yet.)
Wednesday night services moved back to the church in the city, which has been working out very well. Everyone seems to be enjoying it more. The last time we had services at our house, though, we lost electricity right before everyone got here. The girls loved the candles so much that they probably wished that we were always without electricity (it also means they get to play with Papa's flashlight). I am SO grateful that we really haven't lost it much lately this fall as I feel I have done my share of hand washing.
After passing out tracts last week, we all went to the zoo. I've been terrible with the camera lately, but managed to get a few pictures.

She fell and bit her lip last Wednesday.
Can't help but post a couple pictures of my little man. He is such a good little guy...even though you wouldn't be able to tell by this next picture. He looked so cute in the overalls that I had to post it.
Next week we head to Kiev to apply for Sammy's US birth certificate, etc. We usually have no problems with the embassy, but it is a very, long trip (9 hr train ride). Thankfully, we will only be traveling during the day and renting a hotel room there.
We also received two boxes from Victory Baptist Church in Sutherlin, VA and, as you can see, the girls were pretty excited.
