A Guatemalan Princess Turns Three

It started out with a little plea
Please, God, please, oh let it be
Please fill my arms with love so dear
To love and nurture year after year
I'm not worthy to love one of your own
But if you allow, your grace will hone
My abilities to give of me
To guide and love and grow to see
The Lord above called her his
No DNA nor flesh could hiss
at the love of a Father from above
or at a Mother who waited in love
To hold her forever was what I asked
And God above said yes, at last.

Now you are three, how could it be
You here with me though and that's how it was meant to be
No doubt at all, sweet girl, you were meant to be mine.
It was all laid out by the Father's design

My Little Daisy's

Is this not the cutest bunch of girls?!

I am so blessed that my girls get to hang out with such Godly, sweet little ones, and that they have such a fantastic Troup Leader!

Easter Easter Easter!

How we LOVE Easter!!!!!

This was our 2nd Easter in Maryland (the place we weren't supposed to stay - cough cough), Lily & Aaron's 3rd Easter home with us, Autumn's 5th Easter home, Kya's 6th and mine & Dale's 10th Easter together. Lots to celebrate!

We spent most of it outside enjoying God's creation on His Glorious Resurrection Celebration.

We hope your Easter was AS COOL as ours!

Not Everything is Beautiful

We all wish that every project we did turned out great,
every moment with our kids is sweet,
and nobody ever gets snippy with each other.


This was officially the worst Easter Egg project EVER. The eggs are ugly and the attitudes were not much better.

BUT, I can say this...near the end, it was so bad, we all just started giggling and couldn't stop laughing at ourselves. We then made the best of it and dug in with both hands, getting messy. We renamed them Dino Eggs.
