Been a while!

Wow!  It has been a while since I have updated this thing.  Not too much new is going on.  The kids are growing more and more every day.  It amazes me the things they come up with!

A few days ago Parker broke a piece off of a wicker basket and shoved it in his ear.  I had to pull it out with tweesers and it was about an inch long.  The end had blood on it and Parker was screaming so I took him to the Dr. and thank god he cut his ear canal, not the ear drum.  They ended up doing his 4 yr checkup(my baby is FOUR!) and he got shots and blood work.  He thinks all of that was from putting the stick in his ear.  Hopefully it scared him enough to never do it again! It is kind of funny though.  Yesterday he was playing with some little men in the living room and I could hear him say "Oh no little brother, why you put that stick in your ear?" LMAO!  It amazes me how they "play" whatever is going on in their lives.  So I asked him uh oh Parker whats gonna happen to little brother?  He said "Now little brother has to go to the doctor and get lots of shots!"  Too cute!

We are leaving in exactly 2 weeks to go to Orange Beach, Al for a whole week!!!!  We cannot wait.  Everyday when the boys wake up they ask if we are going yet.  We haven't been to the beach in two years bc of having to take classes to get certified for foster care in TX last summer so it is going to be a much much needed vacation!

I got a new toy!!!  A Canon Rebel digital SLR camera.  I am excited to have a hobby and really enjoying practicing and learning.  It made me realize how I haven't had anything that I do just for my own enjoyment in a very long time.  I still really don't know what I am doing but I'm having fun taking pictures and learning how to edit them!  I am determined to be able to take professional quality pictures of my kids myself!  I am putting up a few of my favs so far :)

It is May already!  Time just flies.  May 6th will be 30 days since rights were terminated and then we will finally be moved in to adoptions!!!  Hoping things go quickly.  I will keep you updated!


  1. I hope thing go quickly too... how exciting!

    Your pictures are beautiful!!! I would love to tallk photography with you anytime, as you know it is my big hobby too. :)

  2. Thanks Lerin!! You sure you want me harrassing you??? LOL I never realized how fun it would be. I have always LOVED taking pictures and have boxes and boxes of snapshots since high school. I was always the girl with the camera but was too intimidated to actually learn how to use a slr. Then I saw how many of you can do it and I was like okay I can do this! haha
