Amanda has REALLY enjoyed reading everyone's comments on my blog!  In fact so much so that she started HER OWN BLOG last night!  And guess what color template she chose?  Yep! Pink! So I have switched my template and may switch again as there are so many nifty colors!

I tried green, which is my favorite color but it was SO bright it hurt my eyes and was difficult to read.  So for now I'm using  fall colors.
Check out Amanda's new blog!   Deaf Girl Amanda

Here are some photos of us at a family birthday party yesterday.
Jennifer, Amanda, Gonzálo and Joseph

Amanda put these "headbands" on us that were made from the popper steamers for the surprise party.  They were cute at the time, until we took them off and realized they had stained our foreheads!!

Amanda is making sure that Joseph gets some birthday cake.  Gonzálo is conversing with "our" mother-in-law, Roberta in the background.  Roberta is Amanda and Joseph's grandmother.  Her daughter was Laura, the kids' mom and Gonzálo's wife, who died when Amanda was 2 months old.  So she is our mother-in-law.

yay, you have gone eco green!, I have your and Amanda's blog links on MY Blog which is now up and running...

Hi Charlotte! I just looked briefly at your blog and and will check it out completely later. From what I can see so far, it's beautiful! I love the sailboat photo and can't wait to see what the significance is. Maybe your CI journey is related to "sailing" along. Smile.

Thanks for adding my blog and Amanda's to your blog links. I added your beautiful blog to my blog list as well.

I look forward to learning more about you.

Jennifer :-)

Thanks for sharing the photos. I hope the marks were easy to wash off your foreheads.

My daughter has her own blog, too. I'm kind of keeping it low-key at the moment. I guess I'm a worrywart.

I'll be checking out her blog right now so I don't forget...:)

Thanks, Katie-Louise, Yeah, pink isn't really my color. I'm glad you're enjoying my blog. I am very much enjoying yours as well.

Hi Shari, It took several days for the "stains" to wear off! So how is your daughter's blog going? Everything okay?
