chocolate pudding model?

I think she could be the next chocolate pudding model, what do you think?


A wonderful evening

We had wonderful Saturday evening at our new friends that we met through Leslie and Larry. Please visit My Girls for great photos of the kids. Once again Leslie has better pictures of my kids on her blog than I do, what would I do with out you? We had a very relaxing evening of great food and great company. We have been so blessed with many new friends since bringing our beautiful daughter home, God is good.

A duck race


Me and my verrrrrrry good friend Leslie (she is not a outdoors kinda girl) endured what seemed like forever in the hot sun Saturday so our kids could partipate in a duck race. All the kids where hot, hungry and needing naps by the time we left. Not to mention, they didn't win. Oh well lets just hope they raised a lot of money so it wasn't a total loss.

Adalyn's white teeth

Miss Hollywood
Look mom, no cavities.

Dalton and Adalyn went to the denist last week. They both got great reports. They didn't have any cavities.
This was Adalyn's first visit. She did good until the end when they tried to floss her teeth. We'll work on that. Her thumb sucking isn't a big deal right now. Dr. K said we wouldn't worry about it until she got in school and if she is still sucking it then we'll talk about it. And thats ok with me because thats one way to hold on to my little girl a little while longer, and that makes me happy.

Abigail's cake

I may have found the most talented cake make around. She is from Indiana, I'll pass along her number if anyone is interested. My niece is having her first birthday party tomorrow and I wanted to get the cake for her. This great baker made our cakes for our Moon festival back in the fall and I had also seen a cake of hers on one of my friends blogs. I knew she did a great job but my mom had not seen any of her work so she was blown away when she saw it. We will definitely be giving her a call in the future.
Adalyn has been wishing Abigail happy birthday for two days. She is so excited to go to her party. I'll post birthday pictures later.

Adalyn's new top

This is Adalyn's new top from my blogger friend Lynn @ Somewhere in the Sun. Thanks so much Lynn you did an awesome job. I'm not the best picture taker so these pictures dont do it justice. It is made from really good material and very well made. I think it is going to be one of our favorites. A couple other friends are getting the same shirt so I post those pictures later.
I love finding things for her that you can't just buy anywhere. I know I will being ordering more cute things from her in the future. Thanks again Lynn.

Our Angel Bailey

This is the wonderful header Leslie did for our Angel. A simple thanks doesn't even come close to being enough. It is so beautiful and so much appreciated. Leslie you have truly found your calling. Thanks a million.


Thanks Leslie

Well it seems my bff has been up to it again, how does she find the time to be a wife, stay at home mom and computer guru? What an awesome friend I have. Leslie you inspire me to keep reaching for things out of reach, making new goals and being a better person. I am so lucky to have found you and thankful that GOD choose to cross our paths. Your kindness and genuine love is sure to be known by all that are in your presence. Thanks, and I strive to be the best friend I can be to you.

Happy Birthday Taylor, we love you!

We celebrated our grandsons 11th birthday tonight at dinner. Its hard to believe he is going into middle school this year, where does the time go?

We had a great time in Florida if we did only stay 4 nights. Adalyn saw Sponge Bob, oh my gosh, she was so excited she was laughing and crying. We ate breakfast with the yellow guy and it was money well spent. She was so excited she couldnt even eat. When we left the guy at the desk ask where we where from and when I told him we drove 16 hours to see Sponge Bob he looked at me like I was crazy. I told Doug I should have told him he might have kids one day.
Dalton got to go to lego world so it was well worth his time in the car. He could have stayed in that store all day. He said one time he couldnt believe he was in a store that sold nothing but legos.
It was a long trip but one we all needed. We didnt stay as long as planned but we still had a great time and as always it was good to get home.


Celebrating the 4th

We had a great 4th. Larry and Leslie know how to throw a party. It rained a little but that didnt stop us from having a great time. The company and food was great. The kids (big and small) played until dark and then we set off some fireworks. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by such great friends.

Thankful to be an American

I'm thankful to live in this wonderful country. After traveling outside the U S, it really makes you appreciate the things we have and not take everyday life for granted. I could not imagine living anywhere else. This truly is the land of the free and I'm glad to call this home. I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th.

She amazes me

Adalyn asked for a pink bike for her birthday. I never thought she would learn to ride quite so soon. She just hops on and away she goes, we dont even have side walks. Heck I don't think Dalton even thought about riding a bike until he was in school. She seems to big at times, I'm glad I have a camera and video close by to capture some of the fun.
