Another adoptive mom and dad from our agency went to Ethiopia to pick up their sweet baby twins and took pictures of our boys, delivered our little gifts and gave us a few little details about them (Thank you Holly and Eric!). Here is a little of what they said:

A few weeks ago our whole family went to a Diamondback's game for free - free tickets, free parking, free food (for the kids-adults packed our own snacks :)), and free hats for the kids. The kids completed a summer reading program through the library and were all given free tickets. We chose to go on a Sunday afternoon kids' day so they got free food and baseball hats! My sister and her family came and sat right behind us.
Finally here are some pictures of our decorating. The first is in the hallway - just a big old frame from a garage sale $1 and some iron crosses $.50 each and some paint pens to write "Jesus - The way, the truth, the life". The girls' room was built by the previous owners to be a theatre room - so it is big. They have their beds at one end and their imagination/tea party/reading sitting area at the other end - again - 90% I found at garage sales. Above their couch I wrote "sisters forever, friends for life" They have a bible verse they have picked that they want me to write on the wall in between their beds - but I haven't gotten to it yet. Notice their Moroccan Kaftan's that were the inspiration for the room and their favorite dress up clothes.
