A whole lot of party going on here!!!!

 So on May 4th - we celebrated Jonathan's 4th Adoption Day!!!  How is it possible that he has been with us over 4 years?  :)  Time flies by so quickly! 
 Our happy, quiet, sweet loving mommy's boy who loves buzz lightyear, super heros, Diego, and pirates.  He loves to snuggle and to play with his sisters and try to be like his older brothers too. 
 This little man - our miracle from Ethiopia......WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

***Side note:  took the camera wii me to Christian Alliance for Orphanns so the only pis we got were from the evening when we got home. 
 Then on May 5th it was Sarah's 9th Birthday!!!!!  YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sweet moments......
 These 3 gorgeous girls are so fun!!!! 
 A princess card for a princess! 
 Accessories of course are needed. 
 And......a working microphone to sing with her favorite artists- such as Britt Nicole, Jamie Grace, Toby Mac, and many others......  She has a great voice too!  As well as a fun personality to liven up any stage! 
 She is such a joyful person who loves to laugh and be a little crazy. 
 Speaking of crazy.....Jonathan wanted me to take a picture of his tatt on his leg and the stickers he was wearing. 
 Sarah's dessert of choice for her birthday- Blueberry cobbler- YUMMY!!!!!!!!!
 I missed being home - with this!!!
 Of course you need shades when you blow out your candles! 
 Then on to more celebrating later that day with.......
 Baptism blowout!!!!!!!!!  Which is our church's way of saying there are soo many that want to be baptized- lets break out some pools and get people dunked ;) fun celebrations!!!!!  Taking that step to tell everyone this is what I am doing because of what Christ did for me! 
 Ready to go....and by the way his Sunday School teacher Mr. Frost was the one baptizing him.  He was sooo thrilled to get to do it and Matthew was happy about that! 
 Buried in the water as Christ was buried in the grave.......
 And raised to fullness of new life in Him! 
= ONE HAPPY YOUNG MAN!  Matthew so proud of you and how you are taking steps in your faith to let the world know that you are HIS!  :) 

***Whew- lots to write about.....a HUGE surprise I came home to, and the Christian Alliance For Orphans Conference Summit #9!!  Stay that I got the problem figured out with the pictures ;)  Thankful for a hubby who helps me out!

  1. Soooo precious! Our little boy, Israel, adopted this past year, has his 7th birthday with us and this is the first time WE get to celebrate with him! Last year, I knew he was going to be ours, but he did not. I was sad not to have him here but we got to have a little private late celebration later!
    Blessings to you and yours!
    p.s....we are working on our 2nd adoption! A
    3 1/2 to 4 year old little girl named Faith. She is currently in Uganda....waiting for me just like I'm waiting for her! (But SHE doesn't yet know about ME! I guess I should say US!!)
