I'm going to San Francisco for the weekend!!!
Wahoo! I have three hours to kill in the Dallas airport.
I think I will have to find a family with small children and offer my services... Or else I won't know what to do with myself.
While I enjoy time with my brother and his family...
Steve will be holding down the fort.
He does so very capably.
Like WAY better than I ever could.
And he never complains.
He is my saint.
Little run down of his weekend... With FOUR kids.
Little league opening ceremonies (read: sheer chaos)
Little league Parade
Baseball game (that he is coaching)
T-Ball team pictures
Another baseball game

Never mind the daily tasks of taking care of four kids stuff. You know... Like feeding them.
All while I laze the weekend away in one of my most favorite places.
Can I get a big round of applause for my awesome husband?!?!
I owe him.

One with fine black hair and deep brown almond shaped eyes.
and one with corn silk blonde hair and eyes that mirror the color of the sky on a cool spring day.
I hope I can teach them that as beautiful as I think they are... that true beauty comes from within. and that it is kindness, compassion and genuine love for others that will make them shine in this world.
My love for them is far beyond words could express.
We were on day 3 of Grace's hospital stay recovering from her palate surgery.
I'm thankful this year is so much different!
So far (and it's only 9 am on Easter morning) Grace has eaten no less than 2 lbs of candy over the last 24 hours.
When she opened that first plastic egg yesterday morning and discovered there was CANDY in there...
She realized she better hurry up and get some more of these eggs!
Easter Eggstravaganza at our church yesterday with 170 kids coming to hear the Easter story and hunt for some eggs.
By 7 am this morning, Easter baskets were picked through, eggs were found and MORE candy was eaten.
There might be a little too much sugar energy in the pew later on this morning. uh oh.
I sit here writing a blog post, as four my family members have breakfast with family.
One child decided Easter was a good time to get sick. So, he is in confinement and I am playing warden. You can probably guess which of the four is sick, since he is strangely missing from each and every picture here.
We are a crazy loud family of six. Steve and I have been blessed with four children, three the old fashion way and one through the miracle of adoption. We blog to tell our story. Here we share with you the laughter, tears, joy and chaos that is our home.
On this adventure of life and love for 13 years!
Our 11 year old is full of curiosity, imagination and a love for all things sports!
Our 9 year old beauty is never without a song in her heart or on her lips.
Our 7 year old’s giggle is contagious and smile is simply irresistible.
Our 4 year old blessing from Bo’ai County, Jiaozuo, Henan Province, China… forever in our arms February 21, 2011
