Guess Why

Guess why we are full of smiles today? Because..........
my beautiful sister in law is PREGNANT! 
Matt & Krissi will be blessing our family with another baby early June. 
We are so excited for Aydan to be a big brother, he will be the sweetest 
and to share in the "joy of two" with M & K.
We are tickled (i'm guessing we are tickled pink) to be an Aunt and Uncle again.

Anika update

Remember Anika

The sweet 2 1/2 girl that was awaiting a family.

I'm so thankful Love introduces us to her. 

I'm so thankful that I when I asked 9 of you to join me help with her adoption fund 
within minutes you did!

Well, today I'm so thankful that she has a family.

This was the last Post update on Anika.

You can get an update on her now Here

Play at Home Mom

 if she spots a pillow it is a MUST to head straight to it for a rest
 this look! i get it everyday and it melts me.
 a girl and her nails
you can't tell in this picture but she is sitting in her shopping cart
and when mom turns her back she stands.

I love my job and being a play at home mom, but we have had a week! Today (finally) they seem more like themselves and as I type are laughing and feeding each other cereal. 

I hoping, if I get a chance today, to share some updates on Anika. Remember, back in May, when I asked some of you to join me and team up with Moments with Love to raise money for her hopeful adoption. You can find the post HERE.  Well, I can't wait to share with you her family.

HAPPY FRIDAY! It is  Friday right?

too much

Anyone that has tried to phone me in the last 3 days and I have to let them go (within seconds) to tend to my babes can now put a picture to the noise in the background. Isn't this the saddest face! Teething, shots, running nose, mom trying to see what winter wardrobe we have for her and a sister that doesn't understand why she won't sit still during "tea time" it is just too much for little Nya. I will try to return phone calls in the next few years-ha.

charity water

I CAN'T imagine! 
This Thanksgiving what do you have to be thankful for? Our children, our health or our home. Many of us don't think "I'm thankful for water". 
This Thanksgiving Brandon and I are asking our friends and family to give up one dish and donate to charity water. 
Will you consider today?

Thank you.
