~Baby Mary is 9 months~

Melanie Smith is flying to Bolivia today.  Please pray for traveling mercies!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
We have been working on renewing on Colombian visas for the 3rd time for several months now.   Our visas expire on Monday, and yesterday we found out that the Colombian government who has all our Original birth certificates and before would give us a paper saying so, has changed their policy.  They still have our originals, but now we have to produce copies of them, which we are not sure that we have!    Phillip is digging through the boxes of his MOLDY books, trying to see if we have copies of our birth certificates.  But needs to leave for the airport very soon.

We are soooo TIRED from running the one hour--one way trip to the office several times with 5 kids and Melanie.  Please pray that God will work out His will in this. Thank you for your prayers...they mean A LOT!!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
~Where has the time gone?  Our little Mary is now 9 months!  Jesus helped, and I took her 9 month pics last night and today...(with the help of Melanie and our kids too).~

~Here Mary is a little Chef! =)
("It's easy to get flour on your face when one is baking."  =)~
~"Now did the recipe say 'teaspoon' or 'Tablespoon?' "~

~"Isn't baking a blast?"~
~"Can anyone see what the recipe down there calls for next?"
~Mary wants to be just like her Mommy!
(She does this with her mouth all the time...it's like she is whistling.)~

~"Hats, scarves and shoes...how fun to be a lady!" (Gram, Did you notice my 4 cute teeth?)~
"I'm all dressed up with no where to go!"
~"Did you say, "Let's Go shopping?" =D~

Just got time to stop and see these pictures. Yes, those little new teeth are precious and Gram did notice!!! All the poses are so cute and unique. We are praying that Melanie is soon safe with her parents. It will be interesting to get her take on Colombia. (Maybe :-)) So glad that she could be with you. Praying for those visa's and soooo sorry that you have had to face all this again. Love, Moma

Heather, these pictures of your tiny Mary are adorable! She is such a fragile and feminine girl, and some of these pictures of her are so funny and made me laugh. Your family could not have been nearly as nice without your little Mary Grace!
I wonder how you can keep up with all you do! When my mother had her fifth child she had no energy left, and had it not been for Aunt Donna's birth certificate and her physical body, we'd have had no clue that she'd been born because there were no pictures to prove her existence! [ ;-) ]
Love, Mom D

I'm enjoying getting caught up on your blog today :) These pics brought a smile to my face - they are so cute! Adorable little girl, and a clever photographer :)

Heather, I have been scanning your blogs tonight. I used to be able to look at them on my phone, but now it doesn't pick up the pink background so it's black words on a black background. Weird phone thing I guess. So I have been spending some time here on our regular computer reading the words that go with the pictures I've been seeing. :)
I have been enjoying them!
These pictures of Mary are absolutely adorable!!! I LOVE them! She is such a cutie and you are a great photographer!
It was great to "catch up with you." Love, Sarah Watkins
