3 years ago.....

3 years ago today, God handed me my daughter! She makes me a better person, she is the perfect fit. God knew exactly what He was doing! The "broken" road that led me to her was never "broken" at all. It was God's plan for me to walk that journey so He could bring us together...

What a wonderful moment this was. Look at this sweet baby girl! So hard to believe that she is now a happy, funny, silly, smart, brave, and beautiful pre-schooler!!! And who would have ever thought that I would return a year later and bring home her sweet sister!

Wow! God is so good!

No fear!

Today both Janie and Lexie had their first ever beach trip. We have been to lake beaches, but never taken them to the ocean...until today!

Both girls LOVED it! No fear at all. I knew Lexie would be fine, but I was worried Janie might be a little hesitant at first....but no way! Both girls ran right in and laughed and screamed with pure joy the entire time!!

Looking forward to more fun the rest of the week!

My new favorite video

Love, love, love this!! Every night Janie asks me to "tell her a story". She always wants the story of her and Lexie's adoption....this is her version! Melts my heart!!

I also love how Lexie tries to tell her story too (by trying to say "Once upon a time"...then she does her prayers.....always for Baby Josie, Wylie, and Charlie....

I want to go to a hotel!

Janie loves to go to hotels! Here she is telling me that she wants to go again!!
Love that southern accent of hers!! 
Then, Lexie joins in and adds that she wants to go to a "yucky" hotel. That is a joke in our family....
do we stay at good hotels or yucky hotels!

Happy Easter 2012

We started on Saturday with an Easter Egg hunt at the church! The girls were excited and ready to go!!

See this silly face that Janie is making....this is her new face when I say "Smile". I get this crazy, scrunched nose smile!!
Here it is again!! She has a beautiful smile--we need to work on showing it when asked :):)

Making a sand art cross!

Easter morning breakfast after discovering the Easter Bunny had come to our house!

What did he bring the girls....well, not baskets but these fun cars with lots of goodies in the seat!

Getting ready to go to church to celebrate this special day! HE IS RISEN!!

After church we visited a local covered bridge to get some sweet pictures!

Then home for a yummy lunch and nap! After the nap, the girls discovered that the Easter Bunny had left eggs in the backyard!!

Ending the day by playing with thier new cars!!

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We love you all!!
