Jan. 7th post... and the VIDEO from Jan. 5th reunion! :)

Ok.... so here's the video... I was able to upload it to you tube (make it private).. then post it to the blog... whew!!! Just a warning... Pause the music at the bottom of the blog... and make sure your volume is NOT turned up high... the screams will be VERY loud!



... and I think it's safe to say they missed us as much as we missed them!  I never in a million years dreamed that Faith would SCREAM like that!!!  :)   It was PRECIOUS!    Grace was in shock... her mouth was wide, her eyes HUGE!! She was the one we'd have thought would SCREAM! It's amazing how they continue to surprise us!

We had another great visit this morning... We are having major Internet issues... so I'm not going to try to post pictures as well. Just know they are still adorable and enjoying the bows, glasses, and all the 'girlie' stuff that we brought to them. I took some baby lotion and we also put on lotion today. Something as simple as lotion is amazing to them. They continued to smell their hands and smile. It truly is precious! I can't wait to pamper them and show them how loved they truly are. :)

They continue to absorb English.. and we are working hard on simple body parts.   They already know and will say: nose, ear, eye...   I am telling you that they are amazing.  It's incredible what they already remember.    We feel like we discovered two precious jewels!!   We are so very blessed!! 

We are going to Svetlana's for dinner tonight at 6 pm. We are excited to see how her family celebrates their Christmas. I brought a box of brownies and I'm going to make those to take... they had NO idea what a brownie was when I asked. We'll post more after our dinner with them...
(if Internet will cooperate!)

I don't think you can embed private videos. :( But I can imagine it and I know it's just delightful! Good luck with the brownies! :)

Can't see the video because it's private. :-(

I can't wait to see it though and hear how the brownies went over.

Praise God on a good day in court. Keeping prayers for success on the 11th.
Can't see the U-tube vidio- nothing plays- just a black screen

No video for me either. It says I have to accept your invitation to view it. So glad you had another great visit and that you get to spend Christmas with Svetlana & family. I'm sure they loved your brownies!

Kim said...

Actually the video screen says we have to accept your friend request b/c it's private. No worries, we know we'll get to enjoy it one of these days!

Angie said...
