Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Birthday & Sisters



Kobi had a birtday this week too.  We had a chill family dinner and cake and presents at home with the fam.
The obsession with the "monkey" started with Kobi... her absolute fav.. I frosted this pathetic cake with a butter knife and baggies full of premade icing... so excuse me if it looks like a 6 year old made it...Kobi loved it :) 
an always a character...





Kobi's favorite gift... her own sewing machine.  she's having a ball with it... (gotta love craigslist for stuff like this ) 
She also had a little lunch with her girlfriends at the restaurant where Collin works..
.and then we headed over to paint pottery, hands down her favorite crafty place to go :)
decisions..decisions...
This girl wrecks me...so stinkin sweet...
Is there anything better than a little girl full out giggle?
and i know i'm shifting gears here a bit...but i was just thinking about a few years back when I had this twinge of panic when I realized that my girl didn't have a sister.  It was probably a selfish thought.. as I had always longed to have a sister.  I think those twinges of wishing I could give her a sister is what got me to start really thinking about adopting... which I had always had in the back of my mind but we had really thought our family was complete after 3..hee hee hee hee....    Enter this girl,,, the little sister that changed everything ....
I have to make a mommy confession and say that I LOVE once kids hit the fours... 

I love that Kobi and Mina are starting to get that sister bond...  for reals and not just that she's my baby sister love... So sweet.
These two girls are polar opposites in EVERY way.. but I think it works out well for them.
Love this photo...
There is nothing better than the gift of sisters... I am so happy that they have each other :)

That's such a coincidence. I just wrote a post about sisters on Sunday. They are truly a divine gift! I never got to grow up with one, but now get to live vicariously through my daughters.
