Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Snow day!

A few days ago, Nardos declared that Ciera (her cousin) told her that if we get snow, we don't have to go to school.  I clarified that sometimes that is true, but not always.  Well, the weather cooperated with her theory and we ended up with a Snow Day!  Great, I though, this will be a hard train of thought to change.

So, after getting all 5 kids suited up and explaining to the girls that even with all this stuff on the snow will get on your face and on your wrists and ankles AND it will be cold, they headed out.  They played outside for quite a while.  There was MUCH giggling and squealing.  Enjoy the pictures.

Happy Snow day!

I'm in real trouble - we just got news that we are having another snow day tomorrow!
