We called her yesterday morning and Alesa talked to her first. Before Mark and I could talk to her the line went dead and we couldn't get back through. This sometimes happens in overseas calls ugh! We will try and call tomorrow. Mark had given her money before she went back so she went and bought a cell phone (they are really cheap over there a pay as you go kind) so that she could talk with us.
I don't know how long she will be able to keep it before it is stolen or someone older and stronger takes it away. Because she is now one of the older girls I am hoping no one will take it from her.
I am posting a picture of her with her puzzle she was so pleased. Also, we were in this store and Katrina came up with this little angel, a funny looking little angel but hey who cares :) and she said, "mom open" so I opened her closed fist, and she had bought me this and had the biggest smile on her face. It really bothered Julia that this little angel didn't have a mouth but with Julia this naturally would be a horrible appalling situation because that child loves to talk.
It really is the little things in life that make it wonderful. I came home from work very tired the other day and Brett gave me the best back and shoulder rub. Alesa cleaned the kitchen all up and I just relaxed. I knew I had kids for a reason... (just kidding sort of)
Thank you for Lord for children especially when they have a servants heart for mom after a long day at work!
