Thank you, Bekke

This is Vanessa.  I just wanted to say thank you so much, Bekke, for always welcoming family and friends into your home.  We know that it comes with a lot effort from you.  We really appreciate it.  Siegi and I had such a wonderful trip.

We love you!

Fixing stuff and feeling better

We finished re-uphostering the dining room chairs and the kids were both feeling great (including Siegi). Solly was so cute with the tools and even put them back in the tool box where they belong. We are staying until March 9th instead of the first to extend what has been a trip of mostly illness so far... YaYa comes on Monday (we are sooooooo excited to see her).
More soon.
Love, Mama
Sweet Paty and Siegi
look Mama, I help!

Nessa is the best

Now Siegi's sick :(

Well, we have all had it and now it is little Siegfried's turn...  Vanessa and I brought him to Hospiten tonight and had a great Pediatric/Neonatal doc see him.  He had a temp of 102 and was coughing.  We got a prescription for him to lower his fever and now he is sleeping...  Dede is still not fully herself but Solly is back to his hamming it up and I am just hoping Dede follows suit tomorrow. We just hung around the house today and laid low...

More Manana, Mama

No pics of Dede today but she is on the mend with the cold/flu and I am so relieved to see her smiling again.  Solly did some finger/body painting today and Siegi was his regular charming self...

Catching up...

Here is the last week in pictures. The house has been full of friends, family and a cold and flu virus. We have been sick in shifts and it is really the worst cold I can remember... Brad left to go back to Raft Island today and Vanessa is south in a town called Mahuhaul with her friend Elaine. Paty, Solly, Dede, Siegi and I are here in Playa, and I am hoping by tomorrow Dede will be feeling better as she started anti-biotics today :( Anyhow, there it is for you in a somewhat scattered post. My pictures are obviously the highlights :)
Love, Mama

Happy adoption day Solomon

Three years ago today I met my son.  My life is worlds different now, and worlds better.

Thank you Thank you Thank you for Solomon.

I love you more than I could ever express in words, you are my child.



Bad blogger...

I know, my blog is sucking lately.  Between being uninspired and tired loading pics is all I feel like doing these days, and facebook is easier to load pics on (way faster) so it usually makes the first cut.  Anyhow,  we are off to Mexico to visit with Vanessa, Siegi and Elaine from Belgium!  She is an old dear friend and is now working there as a teacher, I cannot wait to hear all about life there.
It is 2 am and I am the only one up here is this big creaky house.  Better wake my lovelies :)

Love you, more better posts coming soon.  I feel a second wind :)
