Speaking of Halloween, J's ghouls were a great hit and a new one was made as a group effort. The kids were each allowed to pick a mask- any mask- from J's precious collection, and he was proud of them for choosing two of his 'best' ones.
Teva is a solemn little boy, but he can smile and laugh too- very serious 'old' eyes. It was wonderful to get to know all of the kids and we hope to set up Skyping soon.
Venus and Mars each got to make a character and we helped them play a little Guild Wars2. They each made a ranger so they could have pets, and had a blast running around. Mars chose the largest race and the largest size, and loved hunting and getting his loot. It was a fast paced game with him.
We were sorry to see them go and hope that someday they are able to live closer to us. I don't want to forget Ladyslipper- she wasn't able to come visit, but we did get a recent picture. After 2 and a half years, she finally had enough hair to need a trim, even if it was only in the front for bangs.
Love 'em all.
