A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

First Day of Wee School!

Today was the last First Day for CT at Wee School. KG still has two more years. All of us were MORE than excited for Wee School to start back up. The kids loved their new teachers, classes, and seeing their friends. Mommy enjoyed a couple of hours to get some things done. Here's to another GREAT year!

Fabulous Family Fun!!!

The first weekend in August we packed up and headed out to the Ranch for a little family fun! Both of Todd's parents had a BIG birthday this year, so we got together to do a little celebrating! Since we had already celebrated Papa's birthday, it was Nana's turn. We had 18 total and had a GREAT time!

We all met in Tulsa and got a "little" bite to eat at Ted's Cafe Escondido! I love that place. Free sopapillas and homemade tortillas!
Taking a dip in the "stream" as CT calls it. The kids had a blast floating and riding in the canoes. There is also a rope swing down stream that they floated to and played on. Our time was cut short due to the torrential downpour that lasted 24 FULL hours.
Nana and Papa drug their blow-up slide with them. KG absolutely LOVES this.

CT making a splash!
Cousins Skylar and Landry
Uncle Greg, Daddy, and Papa cooking our dinner. :)
Cousin Riggs entertaining.
Some of the cousins hanging out in the bunkbed room. At one point I came in and they were jumping from that top bunk onto the big brown bed. We put a QUICK stop to that. Silly kids!

Mighty to Save CT and KG Style!

The other day I was busy cleaning the house when I walked in to this taking place. It was so cute I had to video. CT is WAY into "playing" the guitar. KG is "playing" her broom guitar also. They put on a concert for quite some time. :) Enjoy!

It's Official!!!!

We have officially gotten our LID. That is our Log In Date- July 29,2008. This means that our wait time for our daughter from China has Officially started! As it looks right now it could be every bit of five years before we get our daughter. The referrals are coming very slow. Our prayer is that this would speed up soon, but there are no guarantees. In the mean time we will wait, and know that God's timing is the BEST timing. I will keep you posted on any news we hear.
