what up :)

What has been up over the last few days??? On Friday we went to the park and the girls had a great time! They loved the swings and of course the slides! :)
On Saturday we went and had the girls pictures made professionally for Easter/Spring and they done so great and Anna done a great job with them. Ellee hammed it up it was great and Johannah was being a stinker lol she just was not into smiling and then we went outside and Anna got some really great shots with her smiling and they are beautiful. Even the ones where she was not smiling was beautiful. I can't wait to get them. :) Once we got home I got the mail and the girls' social security cards came in. Whoo hoo
Today was a gorgeous day so we went outside after church and naps and we played with sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and the little windmill thingys lol I can't remember what they are called right now. This is Spring Break for Andrew's kiddos so we went to pick them up, and on the way home, my hubby caught me completely off guard and then I was in tears the rest of the trip home. He said you know what? I said What? He said Ellee sings, laughs, has learned so much since she has been home, we get to see new things in her everyday because her personality is really coming out, she gives kisses and hugs and is so lovely. He went on to say. A year ago we committed to her and had we not she would have been transferred to a mental institution and would probably be dead now. He said all of this with tears in his eyes!!! Oh how I love my husband! God has truly blessed me with a wonderful husband, and father to our children. We have been home going on 3 weeks now and they have been out of the orphanage for almost 4 and they have learned so much over the last few weeks, and they show us new things everyday. They are talking so much more and catch on to things so quickly. They are very smart!!! I could not imagine my life without them!!! 
The girls have their first Dr. appts.  this Friday. Ellee's is a well check and Johannah's is a 3 year check up. This will probably the first of many Dr. appts. so we shall see what the next step is. Let me leave you with some beauties ;)
