Brother and Sister
One of the things I love about having a 9 (almost 10) year old son is that he still likes having me take his picture. He will pose and then enthusiastically ask if I am going to put his picture on my blog? Unlike his brothers, the teenagers, who flinch every time I point the camera at them and say something like "this better not end up on your blog".

Garrett was such a sweet older brother last week and spent a day hanging with his little sister.

They did PlayDoh together.

Practicing his Barber skills.

She is very proud of her doggy.
This guy was definitely having a bad hair day.

After PlayDoh he had lunch with her and even watched Little Bear without complaining.

After lunch they went in the pool. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of that.

After I took the pictures he asked "Your going to put these on the blog right"?

Yes son. Here they are for all to see what a wonderful big brother you are.

See this puzzle?
Samantha and I started this puzzle last week. It is driving me crazy. Between all the Olympic watching and puzzle construction its amazing that the house isn't falling down around me.
This is what it is suppose to look like. Note to self: Never buy a round puzzle again. The pieces will DRIVE YOU CRAZY.

Update: That one little piece of paper came in the mail yesterday. Yeah!!!! I'm going to Fed Ex our dossier to the adoption agency this afternoon. WE ARE SO EXCITED!!!!!

Oh, exciting on your adoption progress!

Also, such a sweet brother to play with his little sister. My older kids are good about that, too. They really like each other's company (which makes it nice for me, too!)
