This week we had our biannual group picture day!

Love, love, LOVE how organized volunteer Elena was in hosting us at Casa de Amor II and preparing everything so that it all came out just right.

So with no further ado, all 33 of our children!!!

Minus one little fellow, J. G., who was not in the mood for picture day and distracted everyone so much that he had to be left out.

Even though I see them every day, my heart about melted when I first saw the sight of all those babies in a row - triplets and "triplets" - with kids just a bit bigger holding them!

Adorable or what?!

Funny face picture - say cheese!!

Our lovely volunteers - Amber M., Savannah, Kaley, Haley M., Elena

(Yes we have a guy volunteer, but Maxim opted to take the picture rather than be a part. Wonder why?!)

A picture featuring Casa de Amor childcare tias, mother of the triplets, volunteers, and more squeezable, chubby babies!!

More pictures coming of the special double birthday party also celebrated this day.

Any guesses as to who the birthday girls were??

H-e-l-l-o out there...

I must be the most sporadic blogger ever. Don't ask me how I could put together 20 posts in September and exactly zero in October. I'm the same busy.

Once I fall off the bandwagon it's just hard to know where to start up again.

I have so many post ideas and so many pictures....

They just never seem to make it HERE. Sigh.

Well, until I can find time amongst office work, holding babies, 40 + hour weeks on the street, church responsibilities, and spending every free moment with Amber & Haley (good friends visiting this month) and the other volunteers, here are a couple of pictures.

Right now the wind and changing seasons (heading into spring and rainy season) makes for beautiful Cochabamba skys, and particularly sunsets.

Love it!
