We got the camera back!

So... we've got the camera back! Now we can share some other pixs from earlier in the month.

Oh- thanks to all who write comments on our blogs. That's really cool and makes us feel like we're really special. We're always humbled that anyone would make time in their schedules to read about 2 little stinkers like us!

Camera-less days

Our Mama took the camera with us on Labor Day and ended up leaving it at a friend's place. Big bummer! She's missing some great shots of us! But, we sure can fill you in quickly on what's the 4-1-1 here in Fred-neck, MD...

1. Saraina has a hernia. Just found out on Monday. Her belly button had a really freaky look to it on Sunday at church and so Mama took us to see Dr. Hsu. Saraina's belly button looked ENORMOUS, like it was gonna pop or something. You can actually press down on it and feel "the hole". Nothing much to do except pray that the Lord will heal it before she turns 6. The doc said she'd need to have a little surgery if it doesn't heal by then. Oh- but, supposedly, she doesn't feel any pain from it.

2. Joshua has decided that doing pee pees on the potty is not cool. Therefore, no big boy undies for him. Mama says buying diapers is easier than cleaning up "messes."

3. Our new church is FANTASTIC! We've both got great Children's Ministry servers who take great care of us and let Mama listen to the entire service. And she's really enjoying it but not as much as Daddy is enjoying playing his... errrr... Uncle Freeman's electric guitar. We'll have to sneak out of our class and take a picture to show you how cool he is!

4. We got to hang out with cousin Celeste and Auntie Sarah last weekend. Auntie Sarah is really cool cause she brings her own toys with her! Joshua's favorite would be her bubble stuff. See the pixs below!

Well, time is running short. We better run!

Peace and love,
j & s

What an August!

Sooooo... we've been REALLY bad with keeping up with this here blog. You know, I wonder if anyone even reads this things other than Daddy at work!

Anyway, August was cool. The big highlight, from my perspective, is having a playmate that really plays with me now! Yep, Saraina is W-I-L-D! Sister lady is all over the place, drooling buckets of spit, pulling herself up on everything, cruising around furniture, and stealing toys from me. My most favorite thing to do with her is play Tag crawling under the dining room table. She can slither her way under those dining room chairs like you wouldn't believe! We're having a blast.

Aside from hanging with Saraina, August was memorable to me because I got to get away from the folks (especially Mama!) for, like, 4 whole nights and have kinda like a slumber party with my Grammy from IL. It was incredible! She had this enormous suitcase filled with toys that used to belong to my Daddy, Aunt Cristina, and Uncle Freeman when they were little. She even hand delivered the coolest apron that was my Granddad's when he was little. The apron has a JW on the front in red. I never knew we both had JW as our initials!

Let see... other neat-o happenings in our world include:
- we got a new USED minivan that we love. the folks drive it like it's a BMW though. seriously, Daddy even said he's going to create a special spreadsheet for it to record the maintenance and mileage! they are both going NUTS!
- a new room set-up. Sister and I are now side by side. We love that we can pass toys to each other and talk for hours instead of sleeping! Oh- well, I do admit I do more "stealing" of Sister's things than she does giving them to me. But I'm working on it!

Enough chit chat... here are some shots!

Peace and love,

Joshua and Saraina playing "Let's Bang on Every Wall in the House."

And here's Daddy and Mommy having fun without us!
