The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. ~Thomas Jefferson

A few pictures... Why not?

TWO DAYS IN A ROW! So I guess you may not be as impressed as I am. lol

I've been feeling so blessed lately with such terrific kids, a wonderful husband, a great life all in all. (okay - so there ARE times things aren't so great, but why dwell on it, kwim? )

Here are a few pictures from our Adoption Hearing Day. The first is our family... well, most of us, we are missing Brett & Bri and Erick.

Here are Dave, myself, Wesley and our lawyer, Kevin Peterson, and Judge Boyer, who, even though he knows us personally, still approved our adoption!

Here's the whole crew of us who attended the hearing! Thanks everyone, for sharing our exciting day!

What a blessing to be able to add to our family through adoption. I know some judge our sanity and question if it is responsible to have such a large family.... and I can say without a doubt... yes, we ARE crazy!... Crazy in love with our kids! And with such a responsibility comes so many blessings it becomes easy enough to handle.

Life IS Good! I have never felt Gods hand in my life more than on this decision. It is through His will that we are able to enjoy this blessing.

Hidee Ho!

Yep - it's Tuesday & I have a ton of things I SHOULD be doing instead of blogging. BUT I had to point out that Audra prettied up my blog for me... and even added one of my favorite Chicago songs for us to listen to when we hang out here. Thanks Audra!

So the adoption is FINAL! Woohoo! And yesterday was Brett's birthday - Happy Birthday Brett! ... and on Sunday we are blessing Wesley at church. Audra is on bedrest until further notice (which I think means - until you deliver :D ) so I'm trying to help with Myelle and help her keep up with general house stuff. I don't know that I'm doing very well helping.

The weather is BEYOOOTIFUL today! Around 40 degrees and the sun is shining it's little heart out. There are puddles everywhere, but it's okay as this is the path towards spring. :)

Almost Final!

Wesley is 8 months old today! We've had him since he was 3 weeks old. What a sweet little boy. :) In 2 days we have our hearing for the finalization of the adoption! I'd like to say "how times flies", but I have to admit that it has been a tedious wait. Once everything is finalized we can have Wesley blessed and have him sealed to us in the temple! THEN I will relax and he will be ours forever.

Wesley learned to crawl just after Christmas. Now he crawls everywhere. FAST! He is pulling up to furniture and hangs our our legs when he wants held. One busy, busy boy! We are so blessed to have him as part of our family.
