Well Hello there !!!

......thinking that I might try to get back into blogging a bit more - I have NO idea how I could possibly tell you each and every big and little thing (blessings) that have been going on in our lives....
....we would be here a long, long, long, long time.
That wouldn't be much fun now would it?

Let me say that this family is doing wonderful!
Sure, there are the ups and downs......by my God is always there, no matter what!
I am so grateful.
*~*~*
Just some fun, random pictures coming up from a September camping trip~
(one of the many perks of homeschooling!!)
My 4 precious kiddos....it was fun to watch them giggling and chatting away....

.....and of course, never, ever, ever, ever, completely NEVER a
dull moment; they wanted to get action shots of each one of them
trying to get air off a sand dune.
Haylie's jump...

Luke trying his hardest.....


.....and then theres poor Miss Ellie -seems like gravity won out on her before she
ever had a chance!!

Jacob kicked hiney, if you will.......




Ellie is such a treasure. (as are all 4 of my kids!) Adoption is SO amazing...
Hey, I have a great idea....
lets do it again??!!!
(did you hear me Lord??)
**smiles**
I love you Father.



Anyhow ~ yes.....Ellie is still the worshipper-sing-at-the
top-of-the-ol-lungs kind of kid!
Love it.



Oh my, oh my, oh my.......and here is my MAIN SQUEEZE!!
Oh, how I LOVE this guy.







uh yea. So, you know how all these blogger are like the most
amazing photographers, and they can capture these amazing pictures
of their kids and such????
Well,
not me.....



Oh well. I try!



This was the evil chipmunk...can you see his beady eye??


Little bugger.

Speaking of little buggers; aren't these two a crack up?




And once again, last but not least - the love of my life........


and me!
(hey...does this picture make my rear look big?
Cause, you know, we wouldn't want a rear-looking
big kind of picture for all to see, now would we?)
Because......
THIS GIRL HAS LOST 25+ POUNDS BABY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sing it with me;
oh yea
uh huh
oh yea
uh huh
......more on that excitement later...
Blessings ~
