In all my excitement for Shelley I forgot to mention that this makes us number 15 on the list. Moving right along.

Baby Claire

Our bloogy friend Shelley received a referral of an adorable baby girl. She has the most amazing kissable cheeks. I love it when a referral happens for someone we "know." Congrats to Shelley, Robert, and "the bean."

One year ago today...

One year ago today we submitted our pre-application to our agency. At the time we were expecting a bonus check from the Army and then we were going to submit the formal application. We only expected it to take another month. Well six months later we FINALLY had our check in hand and submitted our formal application to AAC. I guess God was trying to teach me patience because he knew I would need it to handle this whole process. I consider us a waiting family since the initial application because that is when we really began thinking about Abeni on a daily basis. So little one, where ever you are out there, Mommy, Daddy and your big brothers can't wait to hold you in our arms. We miss you even though we don't know who you are. Mommy aches in her heart to hold your hand and kiss your sweet head. We love you little girl.

Well without further delay I give you not one not two but three boys on our powerwheels...(random neighbor lady and kids included at no additional charge).


So no video of the boys dancing to NKOTB but I think what I have in store for you is as good if not better...... hoping to have it up in just a few minutes.

So I come out of the bathroom and head into the other room only find that my sons are singing "Hanging Tough" by the New Kids on the Block, with their music tape player with microphones. Is this what my wife teaches my boys while I am work? This is absolutely crazy. I am not even allowed to listen to Metallica with my boys!! Honestly, I am starting to question my wife's standards!! Please someone direct her to the light! She'll probably start teaching them the dance moves to each of the songs. YES SHE DOES KNOW THEM ALL!!! SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!
