Phelix and Phisher in their recliners.  They are already huge Veggie Tale movie fans!
Phelix and Phisher talking with Dad after work one night.  It is so cute, they are totally into their dad.  They get so excited when they hear him come home from work, when they hear his voice they just look all over until they find him.  Once they find him, daddy gets the best smile and big updates on how their day went!
Friday night we took the boys swimming for the first time.  Our pool had been closed while we were in Ethiopia and it was 100 degrees.  The boys thought it was awesome!  
Are these not the cutest boys you have ever seen?  We are so blessed by them, so thankful they are part of our family and home with us forever!

Phelix has been sick.  He was at the doctor again today.  He is now the proud owner of his very own breathing treatment machine!  He will take these treatments four times a day for a few days, then 3 times a day, then 2 times etc.  He is also on a steroid and antibiotic to help clear his lungs and congestion up.  He was running a fever today, poor little fellow, he was just miserable!  We welcome your prayers for his complete healing.

Phisher is just so much fun!  He screams like nothing you have ever heard, when he is hungry.  No tears though, it's pretty funny.  When we take his bottle out of his mouth to burp him, he SCREAMS the same.  He is already rolling over, loves biter biscuits, and his big brother and sister!

Speaking of the big kids, Parker and Paeton are a huge help!  This overwhelmed mom of twins, one of which is sick, could not do this with out all of their help.  God truly knew what he was doing bringing them home over the summer when I would have help from P and P.

Thank you to all of you angels who have been bringing us dinner, helping out with the boys, running big kids to the dentist, twirling practice, etc.  So thankful to have all of your love and support, we love you!

AMERICA, AMERICA, God shed His grace on thee

We arrived home on July 4!  We were greeted at the airport by many friends and family, it was a wonderful homecoming!  We are loving having babies in the house, the boys are just precious!  We will post more on our journey to and from Ethiopia soon, it was the greatest but hardest place to be.  
The first photo is of our family with Hannah, the orphanage director.
Second is one of Phisher's favorite nannies!  Third is Phelix with his nanny that loved and cared for him.  This last photo is me seeing  Phisher for the first time.  We will post more soon, we have to figure out how to accomplish more than loving on babies all day.  God is good, all the time!  We are so blessed!
