Trying to Catch Up....Some pics from my trip to Ghana and an update

The twins have been home 11 days. They and everyone else are doing great. We have had no issues and they are already deeply attached to Momma and Daddy . Made me cry to see how attached when we were at their doctor appts. and wanted momma.

First nite in Ghana

Now here are my babies- We are naming them John David and Jabin Kofi.

Sondra came down with the twins and it was so very good to hug her. Waiting on their I600 to process.

First bottles and nitey nite with momma and daddy. 

Going home

Monday they went to the HIV clinic at the Univ. of Maryland....lets just say we are waiting for all the blood work and the doctor was very pleasantly surprised at how healthy and developmentally right on target for their age they are. So.....more late 

Needing to be in momma's arms after blood precious.

A Peek Into Our Week at the Beach

Monster Truck Stop - Kids love it

Grace seeing the Sound as we are crossing over to the Outer Banks

After we arrive, unpack, we visit the beach which was an easy walk down the street.

We had a pool that was heated and the kids enjoyed the swim time in the evenings...I guess you could say we are a family that loves to be in the water. Because after our day at the beach we would hang by the pool.

The water was warm .

Lots of digging and creating in the sand. 

We love shopping at Wings this week ~ everything  is 50 % off. We clean up on hoodies, flip flops, Christmas presents and beach jewelry.

We celebrated Ezra since we missed his birthday.

We also celebrated Luke's 13th b-day. His choice of dessert was chocolate eclair cake ( Which has become the dessert of choice this year - even over dirt dessert )

Andrew did a lot of walking on the beach.

I think Jesse and Judah dug all the way to China every day.

But our favorite is always playing in the surf. There were also a lot of shell this year. We have bags and bags of them to add to our collection.

Ezra and Eli enjoy the surf.
