September 30, 2011

Well we had an eventful night. Jack has been so stuffy so we decided to take him in the bathroom and let the hot shower run. I think it worked pretty good, but the bathroom is pretty tiny so as Rob was bringing him out of the bathroom, the car seat bumped the sink and knocked it off of the wall. I didn't think much of it until I went to wash my hands and water sprayed everywhere. So I went downstairs and told them and Guillermo came back upstairs with me and fixed it. This morning when we got up, water was still spraying everywhere so they told us to move to a different room so they could bring someone in to fix it. Murphy and Jack watched Tinkerbell while Rob and I moved all of our things. We decided to go to Archie's for dinner today. We had been there in 2007 but Murphy was too young to remember. We've told her about it so she thinks she remembers. We went around noon which is early here so she was the only one in the room. The girl had her put her chin, nose, cheeks, forehead, ears in the flour. And then the girl tossed the dough and Murphy caught it. She really had a good time. They brought ours just as she got done and it didn't take long for hers to bake. So it was fun for all. 

Once we left we went back to Maku. This time, with Murphy strapped in. We found a really nice hammock that we think we will be a good fit for either the front porch or the back porch of the new house. We didn't buy it but will probably go back and get it later. We did get a musical instrument for Murphy, a bracelet for her, and a Colombian doll. She has one at home but we didn't bring it here. I tried to find some of the Mola shoes for her but they didn't have any small enough. We'll have to check back. 

By the time we got back, it was nap time for Murphy. And then we had our regular night...supper, no sleep, and lots of spit up. Tomorrow we are going to the new Ayudame which is in the country. A bus is coming to get us (as well as Dale, Diane, Luis, and Sandra) and we are going to the grand opening of the new orphanage. They won't actually be bringing kids for a couple of months. So we are excited about seeing it. We've heard about it from other people who have been there. Cecilia says it's cooler than Bogota and that we should wear sweaters. I don't have a sweater but I have a bright green Columbia coat that doesn't match anything! :) 

Watching Tinkerbell. It doesn't seem to matter that it's in Spanish. 

Our old room. (Not the big one at the top of the stairs!) Our sink broke and to fix it they had us move to another. 

The bathroom in the old room. 

I still forget sometimes but am not reaching in after it. 

The closet. Rob thought we had plenty of hangers. 

Her new favorite restaurant! 

Archie's signature trademark! 

She had so much fun making her own pizza! 

Making sure it tastes good! 

Ready to bake! 

Yay! Mama finally gets in the picture! (She's the one who can make him laugh the most!)
