Sevi is adjusting extremely well! She literally fit in as soon as she walked through the door. She and Bella are literally inseparable and Maida loves having her here (in fact I think after Sevi got home Maida started using more Lingala again ^^).
All the girls got dressed up in traditional Congolese clothes (we brought them home with us, all handmade!) the next Sunday after Sevi got home for church.
Sevi has also learned how to ride a bike!
We got some good picture when we went on a family outing to an apple orchard back in November
All the girls :)
They are all such beautiful little girls!

And then Thanksgiving came and went..
We went down to my brothers' in laws for thanksgiving. Our grandparents and aunt also were there. It was just an awesome time. Sevi couldn't believe all the food she saw. She asked if we did thanksgiving everyday, haha
These two :)
My beautiful Mom, Grandma, and Aunt
Finally, all the kids together!
The littles with big brother
After our Thanksgiving dinner we all went out to take a walk through the beautiful dessert
And even had a bon fire. Sevi started up the bon fire singing and with that our first Thanksgiving with Sevi (ad second with Maida) was over.
Then came Christmas! Sevi had been waiting for this holiday since the day she came home, haha.
And then after that it has just been being a family together, getting into our new groove, and learning more and loving each other more everyday
We love you Sevi! We are loving having you as part of our family and can't wait to spend and share the rest of our lives together with you!
