October in Pictures.

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks of October that I never got around to posting…at least not that I can remember. Rosie wrote this letter in Russian to Max. Every time we host each kid gets a welcome letter from their new family to read (or be read to them) on the plane. Rosie is super excited about Max, so she wrote him the welcome letter all by herself. Ada bathed the baby guinea pigs one afternoon. These...

Our Halloween Pictures!

It’s so strange to me that our area in Ohio does trick or treating on the last Thursday in October instead of actually on the 31st. It feels bad and wrong! So tonight for Halloween we did nothing. It’s silent outside. Not a thing going on. Here are a few pictures of the kids’ costumes on Thursday night! This was how the evening ended. Brrr! And I posted this in the previous entry, but it should really go with this one...

Halloween & Potties.

Halloween was indeed cold, but the rain stopped just in time for trick or treating! The Poky Little Puppy totally got the concept of going to doors, saying something sort of like Trick or Treat, then saying, “Dank doo!” for thank you. As soon as we would walk away from each porch he would frantically sign, “Eat! Eat!” and try to reach in the bucket. He also kept pointing to himself and saying, “Woof woof!” The make-up, which was actually just...

Mortality & Also Some Pictures.

For some reason I started reading The Fault in Our Stars tonight. I’ve been avoiding it, and I clicked on it, and got I got sucked in. No. No. No. No. Why do I do this to myself? I can already see where this is heading and I don’t want to go there. Nope. It reminds me of middle school, and maybe high school, when I would read those Lurlene McDaniel books about teenagers who die of cancer. Raise your hand...

Ada’s First Hair Cut, The End of October, & Other Pictures.

Here are some pictures from recently. I can’t remember which ones I’ve posted before. I think this was the week before Halloween: Kitten is obsessed with the faucet in the bathroom. Henry dressed in cute clothes. I feel like he’s so much bigger than this now, even though it was just a few weeks ago! And you can see his torticollis here. His head was stuck in that position. Thank goodness that’s fixed mostly. This was the Saturday morning before Halloween....

We had to carve our pumpkin without Tyler this year since he was at work. We didn’t have time to do it beforehand, and we were running out of days before Halloween! I decided to try using the drill. It went…ok. Rosie designed the pumpkin and I carved it. This is when the drill ran out of batteries before we did the last whiskers. All lit up! Our town changed trick or treating to the 1st of November since we had...

Little Red Riding Hood and the Ada Chich-nen. 4

Little Red Riding Hood and the Ada Chich-nen.

We have some kind of terrible illness that causes blisters all over the throat and mouth. Maybe Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease…maybe not.  Rosie recovered in just a few days except for a few lingering tongue sores, so I’m not going to waste a ton of money at the doctor. (Our co-pay is $35 per person.)  I’m sure it’s just a nasty virus, there’s nothing the doctor can give us to help.  It we had strep Rosie wouldn’t have recovered on...

Leading up to Halloween… (Photos) 0

Leading up to Halloween… (Photos)

One of the last warm days of the fall, last week: My favorite old hen.  She lost her toes to frost bite while I was pregnant with Ada.   My 50mm 1.4 lens is officially broken.  Ada knocked it out of my bag when I turned my back for a second and now the auto focus is all fuzzy. I’m going to send it off for repair one day, when I have the money. See how it looks?  It doesn’t focus reliably in the...
