Easter 2011

Today was Great!!! We got up early this morning and got ready for church. I curled both of the girls' hair. :) We then traveled an hour to church. We went to church with Andrew's family today, and it was a great service. The girls went to Children's Church with our aunt and Bailey. And I know this sounds crazy but it was the longest I had been away from them, since they left the orphanage, and it was HARD lol I practically ran to get them lol ;) After church we went back to Andrew' aunt and uncles house and got ready for the family Easter Egg hunt. We had to have the hunt in the house because it has been raining like crazy here!!! When we left to come home it was awful, the weather was horrible, there was water on the road, and we even sound a cloud forming about 3 quarters of the way home! Scary!!! All in all the girls had a great Easter and we just celebrated their First Easter!!! :)
Update on how well they are both doing... They both know Please and thank you in and almost know more in sign language. Ellee knows eat, we are still working with Johannah on that one. We have been working on numbers, shapes and the alphabet. They are both saying more English words. Andrew said the other day they are fixing to take off ;) They are both so smart, and like little sponges. They learn so quickly.

It's been a real joy to see how you all are settling in. Madeline wasn't sure what she thought of the whole egg hunt business :)
