My Dolls

Everyone in Ukraine says that I just like playing dress-up with my real-life dolls. :)
These are about 2 weeks old and Samuel is probably at least 2 lbs heavier, but I promised Grammy Curtis that I would post them.  Don't you just LOVE the little suit?  Thank you, Mimi for the money!



We have been in the car so much traveling that I haven't had much time for posting.  Anna told me the other day on our way back from NC, "Mama, this seat is like a prison."  :)

Writing Letters on the Road

Before we started furlough, I desperately wanted to find some way to keep all of my letters and thanks you's organized.  For me, a pretty organizer is a big motivator.  When we were in Maine, Eric's mom showed me her birthday card organizer and I thought it would be the perfect thing to help me keep up with letters and thank you's.

It has a nice pocket in front to hold my stationary (I LOVE pretty stationary!), stamps and pens.

And pockets for each month to hold letters I need to respond to, letters to mail out and a list of thank you's to write.

We've been on the road SO much that it has been a little harder to keep up, but I'm not too far behind...yet.

Furlough ~Cousins~

Traveling down from Maine on our way to Virginia, we stopped in Conneticut to meet with my brother's sweet {adorable} family.  We had SO much fun!  (Anna didn't want to leave!)

Furlough ~Family~

Ask any missionary what the best part of furlough is (along with Pizza Hut, etc.) and they will probably say, spending time with family.

Since we went to Ukraine in 2007, this is the first time that the grandparents have really gotten to spend time with the kids.
 The kids are loving it too.  I am so glad that they will be able to have some memories with their grandparents and great grandparents.

They get to have fun with the 3 older ones, then when they are tired, cuddle baby Daniel.





We cherish every moment we had with the grandparents in Maine and cherishing every moment with our sweet growing {fastly} baby boy.

We have left the beautiful state of Maine and have started traveling {with 4 -4-under!!}.  Can't wait to see my family in June!
