Join us this year as we travel to Bulgaria to bring 3 children home to make our forever family complete. We look forward to what the future will hold for the dozen of us as a family. We are taking the road less travelled and it has many beautiful twists & turns along the way. Join us as we discover them together on this amazing journey to bring 3 children from an orphanage and make them forever part of the Boyd Bunch.

The Llama Mama
First, I have to say this came about by initiating Sofie time. Let me explain a little about what Sofie time is. See, I had gotten tired of the kids teasing each other. And Alex seem to have a thing for teasing Sofie. It needed to end. So, one day he was messing with her. I said fine, you get Sofie time. 15 minutes for you to do whatever she requests. He kept going. I said fine, it's now 30 mintues! Alex screams NOOO!!! Same time, Sofie is jumping up and down excited as can be. Well, first 15 minutes were outside b/c she wanted to play on the playground. Then, it got to cold. So, they came in. Alex asked if watching a movie counts. I said fine, but she picks. Then, Sofie got a stuffed toy that she wanted Alex to hold.
Alex was not the least bit thrilled. Rest of us were cracking up.
Sofie said Alex is the Llama Mama now! Can't you tell how happy she is. Alex is not amused.
Nik wanted to pose with Alex later. Needless to say, there has been a whole lot less teasing by ALL the kids. See, whoever teases, they have time with the person they teased. Usually, the little kids. Little kids are happy b/c they get to call the shots for a change. win-win.
