halloween 2015


Lil Guy is into Peter Pan and our lil girl is all about any thing pretty, girly or princess –so we decided to all dress up like characters from Peter Pan. We had two lost boys, Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, captain Hook and Wendy.IMG_7250IMG_7253

This year we had made plans to spend the weekend and go trick or treating with my sister and her family. Despite the weather(and the bathroom issue -A*) it was a fun time. We didn’t go out for several years so when the weather is cold and rainy it really makes me wonder why are we doing this again??? The kids had a good time though and after we went back to my sisters to put the younger kids to bed. Our older girls, my sister and I played some games while the guys watched the world series. It was a nice weekend get away.

Excited and toothless!!!!

IMG_7227
Lil Guy lost his first tooth! It had been loose for a while and with a “little” help from his older sister they got it out. He was super excited and it was even more memorable seeing we were at the zoo with his uncle, aunt and four of his cousins. (I might be a little bit bias but I think his toothless grin makes him even cuter)

5 years ago

Dear Blessing #5,  Just look at you –WOW.  Five years ago today we got the phone call we had been waiting for(what seemed like forever) and got to see the picture of you –our son for the first time. Lil Guy you are our dream come true - the answer to prayers for a desire God put in our hearts a long time ago.  We are overwhelmed by Gods grace and love with your story of how you came to be our son. This year as I reflect I am so humbled by your excitement and ever growing knowledge of Jesus and His love for us – I pray that you continue to grow in that and hopeful that someday He will use you will be a mighty servant for His kingdom. Happy 5th referral anniversary Lil Guy –Daddy and I love to the moon and back.
