New Pictures

Well we have been having problems with our internet downloading pictures lately but think we got it fixed tonight, thank goodness. These are just a few pictures from the last month, we have a couple of our Easter Egg Hunt we had will our small group that meets once a month, it was alot of fun. The weather has finally gotten warmer and Lily loves being outside, she also loves daddy's new toy, the riding lawnmower, there is one picture of her and Nick together, she screams when it's time to get off. LOL We also have been taking Lily to the ymca and she loves just being able to run, her brothers were in a dodge ball league and she loved running around with a ball in her hand, she thought she was pretty big. I have also been thinking about Mommy and Teddy Bear Tumble class, as you can see she loves standing on her head, scares me to death!!! Her big brother Blake is in an apprenticeship program for the carpenters union, his first week of schooling one of the things they did was make this awesome rocking horse, Lily loves it. The thing is heavy and will last for many many years, thanks big brother!!!! And last is one from Sunday morning before church she loves for Nick to let her up at the computer desk to listen to music, she starts shaking her bootie and throws her head around, it is a hoot and of course Blake and Nick get quit a kick out of it too. What a blessing she has been to our family we can't imagine life without her:)

They have dates!!!!

My sister and her husband will be leaving on May 3rd to get Sophie, their consulate date is May 5th and they will be coming home on May 7th, just in time for Mother's Day!!! What an amazing blessing to have 2 new additions for a Mother's Day gift, praise God.

Here is the latest photo of Miss Sophie who should be coming home very soon. She has cleared the courts and they are just waiting on the papers to get done, hoping to hear something very soon about a consulate appointment. I know it's been a long wait but as Mike and Julie already know these blessing are so worth the wait, just look at Samuel's cute little smiling face.

Florida trip

Here are a few pictures from our recent trip to Florida. We had a great time, the time went too fast but it was great to get away and get a taste of some warm weather. Amy now, I have to say we had a rough start to our trip, Lily had a double ear infection, sinus infection, sore throat in addition to getting 5 new teeth 3 days before we left. We felt after 3 days on antibiotic she would be better, but Friday we were calling the doctor from Georgia needing something else her fevers were non stop and just in obvious pain. Lily started feeling better by Wednesday, we went to the beach Thursday which she loved even though the water was very cold she didn't seem to mind and walked right in. The place we stayed at had a lazy river there and 2 days in a row she fell asleep, guess that is why they call it "lazy"!! LOL She loved being outside and just running, we also went to Fun Spot, they have go-carts and they has become a tradition when we go to F lorida. I have always loved go-carts and usually foot to the floor the whole time, but this new one, had me terrified, I once couldn't see at the top followed by a huge drop off and more screaming, but it was FUN!!! Lily got to ride on some smaller rides, we weren't sure how she would be but in the first pictures you see a tear in her eye, that is not from fear, that was because we tried to take her off the ride. The young boy was very nice and let her ride for about 15 minutes and of course when he went to unbuckle her she threw herself back and started to cry!!! Overall the trip was great, just wish Lily had not been so sick the first few days, poor baby. She is feeling great and more onry then ever.
