Fair day catch up :)

 Gotta love your local fair! We try to go every year since its usually cool out and not torture walking around in the hot sun :) sweaty hot kids is NOT fun.
We love seeing all the animals and the kids ride a couple rides each , we have one meal there and just enjoy the day.
 Taiya gave this cute little Chi and very special Taiya kiss :)

 Gave up trying to get a perfect shot. They were just too excited . They're still pretty cute :)
 My beautiful cowgirl :)
 My cheeky Mayan princesa
 My spicey Ethiopian beauty :)
 My handsome,growing up too fast 12 year old first baby :)
Our sweet handsome little guy :)

 Taiya was NOT a fan of the hat :(
Cant argue with the shirt :) Thanks Tami !

I promise to get caught up with pictures soon! this batch was from February.  When I look at Benji and Taiyas picture I cant believe these sweet children have only been in our family since October! They have just blown our minds with how well they have adjusted and learned about life in a family. And Taiya well she is just such an amazing survivor ! She has hit milestones we didnt think she would hit for a year!
Taiya can say "up" "out" "num-num" (food) and mom-mom ! And she LOVES to pucker up for kisses !

Things are good :)
Baby Anna will be meeting her new family early next week and be on her way home in another few weeks after that. What a lucky little girl she will be :) AND what a blessed family she will have. I pray for her birthmom too. I know how much she wants her little girl to be adopted but I can only imagine how much her heart will break too :(  so bittersweet.

REMEMBER !! If you donated to our USCIS fund I will refund your money if you would like . If not I will be paypal-ing the full amount to Reeces Rainbow by saturday. If I dont hear from you, I will assume you would like the money to be forwarded on to another child :) it will still help bring a baby home !

GRRRROOOOOSSSSSSSS!!!! You let her tongue lick the dogs tongue!

That is all I have to say......

Okay, and your kids are beautiful!!!
How come you don't have snow covering YOUR ground? Lucky dog!

Gretchen Thibault said...

Ooooops, I said lucky dog. I mean you are the luck dog b/c you don't have snow.

The dog is also lucky b/c I would love to give Taiya a big hug and smooch (minus that Stas/Taiya/Gene Simmons tongue).

Grass is overrated!

"...Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows that we know, and holds us responsible to ACT..." Proverbs 24:12

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27
