Laina's month.

Laina was born in December. But for me, her month is July. We saw her picture in July for the first time and July was the month that I knew we would be going to meet her soon and checked on the internet every day for news about when the referrals would be coming in for the babies. July 2005 is now 3 years in the past, and Laina is a very dynamic force in our family. So for the month of July, I will be posting about Laina. I'll add some in about Min, too. Her month is November, so you'll have to wait for her month to have her details.

Laina--the source the most frustrating frustrations and the happiest joys.

The dread pirates Plum

My nephew had his 4th birthday on Sunday. It was a pirate party and we were invited. Unfortunately we couldn't attend, so we had to send birthday greetings from afar. Here are our little Pirates giving their cousin some pirate greetings.

I told Min to look "Mean" and "Tough". This is what she came up with. Now, you're all terrified by her mean toughness, aren't you? Oooooohhhhh Shaking in my boots.....

Laina shows you her Pirate tattoos. Thanks Dollar Tree!!

Shiver Me Timbers, it's the dread Pirate Min, waiting to plunder your treasures. Yeah, right.
