updates and laughs

Praise- Our approval is definitely at the US Embassy in ET.

Prayer-- they (people at our agency in St Louis)don't know the status of the other paperwork that needs to be completed in ET and Taye may need to have some additional testing d/t new regulations.

I have seen this on some other people's blogs. So fun to do-- Brecken and Bella loved it! I highly recommend it for laughs -- even if you don't post it!

1. What is something mommy always says to you? you little love bug

2. What makes mommy happy? when we do what is right

18. How are you and your mommy the same? Our eyes are blue

19. How are you and your mommy different? Breck - your skin and hair are different colors than mine/ Bella - we don't do the same things

20. How do you know your mommy loves you? Breck-it's easy- you kiss us and hug us, and you stay by our side... well once you had trouble staying by my side and then you lost me--( yikes that actually happened to me for the first time yesterday-- bad feeling-- glad we can laugh about it now!)

21. Where is your mommy's favorite place to go? - the grocery store, well we don't really know where your favorite place is-- maybe Bible study or a party
