Happy, happy Birthday to our "twins!"

Ezekiel and Elizabeth are exactly 7 days apart.  

We brought home Elizabeth just after she and Ezekiel's one year birthday.  

Oh, how they both have grown--both spiritually and physically.

Elizabeth is quiet and helpful.

Ezekiel is inquisitive and academic.

We are so thankful for our "twins."

Birthday Celebrations took place at a small guesthouse in town, with a pool and grass!  

Swimming, baseball, hamburgers and cake.

Happy 7th Birthday you two.

Ezekiel and Elijah

Daddy and Eden

Poppy and Eryn!  
Yes, Poppy came all the way from Oregon to spend three weeks with us.

Enoch, Eden and Eston

Elizabeth and Elyssa

Ready to eat meat (a VERY rare treat).

Ephraim and his burger.

Elizabeth is 7.

And so is her brother Ezekiel.

Sweet Summer, I wish you could have seen this moment...I was looking at you blog, when my new daugher, Noelani, saw the lady that is in your blog header. She used the sign to say that she is beautiful. I then pulled up a world map and showed her that she was born in Asia, that you and your family and several of her siblings were from Africa, and that her new momma and family were born in America. It was so precious. Thank you for your support of our family. I have been thinking of you and praying for you all. loves,
Shonni

Happy Birthday to Ezekiel and Elizabeth! How nice to celebrate-and with your father there, too, Summer!

Praying God's wisdom and love on your family as you continue to trust him with your all in Uganda.
