Today begins a week of BIRTHDAYS!

Today (Friday) our twin boys turn 2

Saturday I'm helping a street friend celebrate the 3rd birthday of her son

Sunday is Baby Home little girl B's 3rd birthday

Monday is Judah Alseth's birthday (CDA III)...and mine!

Wednesday will be adoption "gotcha day" for Baby Home little girl A, which is sort of like a new birth :)

Thursday is the 15th birthday of one of the most endearing street kids ever

Friday is volunteer/CDA II house mom Elena's birthday

Some pictures of our lovely afternoon with the twins:

Our pretty dining room

Seeing double!

Singing Feliz Cumpleanos and Happy Birthday, definitely some of the favorite songs of the house!

Ready for cake!

Stamp of approval!

The twins were separated last year on their birthday, one with his grandfather in the campo (countryside) and one with the mother here in Cochabamba as she tried to work, so it was kinda like their first birthday. :)

Feliz cumpleaƱos!!

new setting..., or need new camera??

Any ideas on why my camera is taking pictures like this all of a sudden?? Well the past couple of weeks, which is one of my excuses for not blogging.

At least the video feature is working fine, as I needed that for an adoption recently.

Any suggestions on a good new camera for me, as I record the memories of so many children?

Thanks! :)
