adoption day, 22 months, spring break and more

On March 5th, we celebrated Evie's one year adoption day. That was the day we went to court in Ethiopia and she was pronounced legally our daughter (though she already was in our hearts). I made doro wat with rice. Anyone want to help a girl out with an injera recipe that works? I have tried and tried to make it with no success and we have no restaurants close enough to buy it. Help!!! We bought an injera maker in Ethiopia, we just need to get the batter right.

Evie loved all of it, especially the lemon cake!

 She turned 22 months old on March 7th.

Just look how much she's grown since she came home. Amazing!!!

 Over spring break, the boys spent a few days in Marble Falls with my mom. She took them to some caverns on the way and to see two movies while there. Other than that, they ran around camp outside and drove the four wheeler around. Heaven on earth to these boys!

There are always beautiful bluebonnets at camp!

And they saw some real live buffalo!

Miss Priss has more personality than any child I've ever seen! She is very, very expressive and happy!

 My sweet neighbor made the boys their own rainbow with a pot of gold (chocolate) for St. Patrick's Day. They devoured it as a snack after school.

I have good intentions of taking more pictures this month and updating this blog more often. Soccer season is about to start, all three kids' birthdays are coming up, and end of the school year activities will be close behind!
