Aaron on the Guitar

Aaron is our little rocker. Daddy snapped this video in September and I'm a bit late uploading it.


This is Home - in the fall

Fall is almost over and winter is about to set in. About a week ago the girls and I went for a walk/hike around our property. We discovered parts of our property we had not yet explored and took some pretty fall photos. I wanted to take more in our neighborhood, some sites that are gorgeous but a week has passed and I missed my chance. The trees look nothing like the photos below now, just one week later.

The sign above is posted on the trees below. A little creek runs between all these trees but I couldn't get a good shot of the creek. We had to "run" back to the house for the girls to go to the bathroom. Oh! The joys of parenting.
Once you pass the creek, are the deep woods with multitudes of deer, fox and all of God's wonderful creatures that we so often share pictures of.

So, this is home. Stay tuned, the next photos of the property will be of snow!

Ladybug, Ladybug Fly Away

In the Chinese Adoption community a ladybug sighting is a sign that referrals are coming soon. Well, if that is true, I guess I am soon going to be getting a referral of 42(+) children! In my foyer alone I counted 42 ladybugs in 1 day, not including the ones in the rooms, hallways, windows....

My friend Debbie was nice enough to remind us they are simply good luck and since we have been blessed with a permanent job after 16 months of searching and they all came on the day the offer came, then we have been FLOODED with good luck.

If only I were superstitious....no, I am not but I do believe God sends us love letters...in many forms.

A sister is a little bit of childhood
that can never be lost

Which one are you?

My girls are so very different from each other. This is how each of them spent a Breezy Saturday afternoon in October .

Which type are you?

Are you an Autumn?

Or a Kya?
Just when I am about to label one of them as lazy,
I remember this...
I am blessed to have both a Martha and a Mary.
Notice the 2nd chair next to Autumn, waiting to just enjoy the day with her hard-working sister.

And, by the way,
Burrrrr....it's starting to get cold here!

My Models

At one point this week, each of my children decided to model.

Kya and Autumn found the bare spot in the yard, where the summer pool resided, to be a perfect stage to take photo shots of one another. And, yes, Kya is still her in pj bottoms this day and Autumn is in a karate gi.
Oh, the things they wear.

Lily wanted to be a little darling in her crib early morning.

While Aaron chose his very own route. Where did his pants go? And what is up with that shirt? Yep, that's MY son. He's a class clown all day long, non-stop.
