Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Halloween 2007

Billy Mays (The Oxiclean infomercial Guy)

So much fun!!!!

Our little guy was a bit upset when his big sister got to go to preschool in her costume and get her face painted in the morning. So we quickly painted his face!
Papa Smurf is a bit scary I think! I could not be convinced to play along. We did have fun at our "grown up" Halloween party!

Standing on the steps waiting to pass out candy.
Carving pumkins for Halloween on the back deck.

What cuties! They loved dressing up and had a super fun day!!!

Our little girl loves her ballet class, what a cutie pie.

The rarity of getting all 3 kids in one photo and they all have their eyes open!!! I love it when that happens!

Going through all my crazy dossier paperwork!!!! What an overwhelming mess. Each piece of
paper is one step closer to our little China girl. Any name suggestions would be welcomed. We really want something with the meaning of brave, courage, or strong. Our little girl is being so brave right now and she doesn't even know it. We can't wait to take care of her.

Lets try this out!

My first posting on a blog, I can't believe it. I never thought that I would be doing this but it is a great way to jounal what is going on at our house. Right now we are loving the beautiful fall , enjoying the kids and working on bringing our littlest one home from China.

Our LOI went to China on 10/22/07 !!!! I am probably being way to optimistic to hope for a PA (pre approval from China) by Thanksgiving, but I am just going to hope and keep up the paperchasing to bring our little girl home! What a pumpkin!

This is our newest updated picture and info :
Now 10 months. She always has a lovely smile on that little face of hers. She has these half-moon shaped eyebrows above her big and round eyes; makes her look like a little angel. She can say: “Nanny!” and is friendly to everybody. She laughs easily. Her developments are normal; can “walk” in the walking chair; can hold the feeding bottle on her own; can stand for a brief moment when holding on to a wall or a chair on her own; she can play with a toy handed to her for a long time. She likes the crowds. She never sleeps during the day; loves to watch TV and often dances with the tunes on TV. She usually sleeps at 8pm ; then she will sleeps till 6am. She drinks milk twice a day and eats rice 3 times a day. She also eats some crackers and fruits as supplementary food.
