Today's highlight

How did we ever function before the internet???

This picture of Joseph was just taken this morning! Another family is there at his orphanage, adopting a darling little 6 year old girl, and they sent a couple of photos. Thankfully my sister just gave me a bunch of my nephew's hand me down clothes. ha.

Is it just me, or does this picture give you an irresistible urge to pick up and SQUEEZE somebody?
P.S. Yesterday was our 15 year anniversary. We celebrated by going to the second grade school play, and rehoming the rabbits. But I am looking forward to celebrating in Europe while adding this sweet boy to our family.

Jan, in trying to simplify things for my parents coming, we gave the rabbits back to the original owners. The dog and cat are staying, as are the horses.

Andreas came home with a pair of those tights.:) His have little horses on the legs.

That picture actually makes me want to squeeze 3 little someones! The boy beside J looks like he could use a Mama to fatten him up. He reminds me of Alysha's Isaac.

He is too cute! I hope you have a wonderful trip, celebrating your 15 and bringing Joseph home. What else could anyone ask for?!!

Molly said...

Promise me that when you become his mommy you will pull those pants down. hehe. I think they're up around his armpits. :-P Doesn't change the fact that he is simply adorable!
