Hanging @ the GH

I haven't blogged in a long time. I don't really have too many excuses... ha! My brother was here for 3 weeks in June. We had a week which we packed up our house in Manila. We moved into our mission guest house and then, Brian's parents arrived. After that, we have our Tagalog study graduation and then, we moved to another island. We are now in the guest house on Mindanao...and are trying very hard to find a house.
Anyway...I just wanted to share these pictures.
This is the boys in the guest house when we first arrived in the philippines...they were just over 10 months old. They loved playing inside the bedside table.

And here is Skye...we're staying in the same guest house...she was around 10 1/2 months old in this picture. She also, found great joy in playing in the bedside table.

Mother's Day

Finally got some Mother's Day pics...since we weren't able to get them on Mother's Day due to a little boy having a fever and a tropical storm. The batik they are wearing is what Brian brought them home from Indonesia.

None of these are very good pictures....but I love them because they show sooo much of the kiddos personality! They make me laugh.
