Long time no see

Well gosh, how long has it been? So much has happened since I last posted. Adalyn is 5 and starts older 4's tomorrow. Dalton is 14 and a Freshman at a new high school. We have moved, love it too! We are getting ready for our 3rd Moon Festival next month. And life couldn't be sweeter! I hope to do lots more posting now that things are settling down. :o)

Magical Disney

We had a amazing time in Disney! There was a brief moment that I wondered if we would get in. It seems that a lot of other people had the same idea of going to Florida on Christmas vacation. As we where driving to the park the sign by Magic Kingdom said FULL. We bought our tickets on line so I just assumed that Full meant us too, wrong! There was a brief moment I panicked, Adalyn had to see all her princesses, Dalton had to go to the awesome candy store. Finally enough people left and we where able to get in, whew! When we got in,
they where having their afternoon parade. Adalyn was so excited, she waved at everyone. She said at one point her arm was tired of waving. :o) The park was magical all decked out for the holidays. There was lights every where. They blew bubbles out of the tops of the buildings at night and it really looked like snow. We got to see the night parade and Cinderella and Snow White where in that one. They had the most awesome fire works at dark and Tinker Bell flew from the castle, WOW! That was about all Adalyn could take. She was so tired when we left but I believe she could have stayed all night.

Please Pray for Haiti

This is Mary Jo, Doug's sister that travelled with him to China. She went to Haiti back a couple of months ago to help at an orphanage. We all know whats going on in that country and she is on a plane headed back to Haiti to help in any way she can. I know how gracious I am that she did what she did for Doug and I. I'll never be able to repay her, so it seems the least I can do to ask for prayers as she enters this devastated country. She has a blog if you would like to follow.

Happy New Year!

I had the kids pictures taken right before Christmas. We headed to Florida on Christmas morning so I had no time to send Christmas cards and wouldn't you know it, I think these are the best pictures they have taken. I know I'm probably a little bias but just look at those cute faces! They did so good at the photo shoot. They where on their best behavior, maybe they didn't want to take any chances since Christmas was right around the corner!
I have pictures from Florida to post. The trip to Disney World was amazing, to see Adalyn's eyes light up, it still makes my heart smile!

Pearly Whites

After two years of wearing braces, Dalton is free! It was not always easy but he did it. He has to wear a retainer for 4 months straight and then just at night. He has been so good about taking care of everything that goes along with it. He is growing up so fast, I couldn't be prouder of my young man!

My early present

Dalton sat on Santa's lap!!! He wouldn't sit on Santa's lap last year because he said he was to big. I think he knew I was a little sad that Adalyn wouldn't sit on Santa's lap this year. I asked him why he had his picture taken this year and not last year, he said "mom, I did it for Adalyn".
Thank you God for sending your son and this one too!
