A Visit From Friends

Today our friends and neighbors, the Lamjav Family ,came by for a visit. Samantha and Milan got to play and watch Blues Clues together, and I was excited to hold sweet little Sofia, who graced me with tons of smiles and amazed me with her neck and trunk strength! It was great to be able to spend more time with Amy and Munich and the girls, although it took Samantha a little while to warm up. She flattened herself down against the floor and lay like a frog, staring mutely at Milan before finally joining her to draw on her chalkboard.

I have a confession to make...I had resisted Facebook for ages and ages. I created an account about a year ago and did nothing with it. I couldn't understand what all the fuss was about, especially since I have my blog and listserves that function as social networking applications. So I thought. Now I've discovered a whole new set of old and new friends and a whole new dynamic of social networking. I'm still exploring and discovering its functions slowly, and I'm not into some of the silly stuff, but it's great to be able to keep in touch with people and to correspond in a way other than e-mail (considering about half of my e-mails to people get spammed out by their mail servers!). Anyway, I just had to clear my conscience. LOL

Here are a few pics I took of Samantha yesterday. We spent about 5 hours house-hunting, and she was happy and agreeable from start to finish, even with a wet bottom for part of it. She's such a little angel!!!!!

Hi Becca, I love the picture of Sammi with her friend - she looks so grown up!

Too funny about the frog thing. Love the image in my head that was created - Aidan does that too.

Good luck with the house hunting - that can be exciting and stressful (or so says my husband, I missed out on the last house hunt as Aidan was sick and couldn't fly - I had to view houses on-line while James went in person 3 Provinces away!).

I love that last picture, she's such a doll. Her hair always makes me think that would be what Chelsea's would look like by now. Beautiful!!!
