Friday, Aidan went over to the neighbors to play while we waited for Joy and Anna to arrive. I received this picture of the boys. . .our Leesburg Eagles!!! These boys will be fast friends for ever, I think.
After our too late of a night on Friday, we got up leisurely on Saturday, breakfasted, showered and then headed out to the store to buy some gifts to take with us to the Embassy. We were able to purchase a lot of nice pj's, underpants, and play clothes to send to the chidren in the orphanages. And, the sale was awwesome: buy one get one 1/2 price and I had a 20% off coupon!!!
We also gought some new sneakers for Aidan, which I regretted immediately afterward. : ) The four band-aids are covering a minute scratch that Aidan got when he tormented Cleo the cat. . .we wanted to make sure it was covered!! : )
We were then taken into another room, that had panels from with symbols from each region on them--sadly, I couln't fin dthe one for Krasnoyarsk--and these were also beautiful. Our children lined up nicely for pictures:
On the way out, the Easter Bunny was ready to bid us farewell with hugs and a bags of Easter goodies.
Aidan, home 4 years; Anna home 2 3/4 years; Landon home 1 1/3 years.
And so ended another year at the Embassy for an Easter party to remember.
On the way home, we did indeed listen to the Caps Game and then arrived in time to watch the Double Overtime win!!!! Woo Hoo!!! Go Caps!!!
After a dinner at Anitas, we sadly had to bid Joy and Anna farewell. But, with promises to gather again, perhaps soon, and definitely next year for the Upperville Jumper Classic--Anna is a horse fan. . .Fun times still to come!!
