Just Some Pictures!

The weather is getting pretty and the sun is finally coming out (that does me so much good). Since I don't have time to write a lot, I thought I would go ahead and post pictures. I know that's what everyone likes to see anyway, right?

One Important Note. There is an exciting giveaway starting in the next couple of days. It's going to be huge, it's going to be fun, it's going to benefit some families who are working hard to bring home some children who have been in an orphanage fighting to stay alive, and it is also going to benefit some children who DO NOT have families. Some of these children are aging out, some need medical care, and they all need families.



until then.......

Mary Claire participated in the Little Rockers race in Little Rock, Arka
nsas. We made it a family outing, including a trip to the zoo!

Train Ride

Ellis Anne is not my social little one. Many times she is happy playing by herself.
This sweet little girl came up to Ellis Anne at the zoo and played with her.
I thought it was sweet.

My kids LOVE staying in hotels. We always priceline it. Here the girls are sitting on a table at the hotel. Sharing some snacks.


Mary Claire was nervous, but with a little encouragement and we found a friend
(that helped a lot), she did it! Next year, Avery will get to participate,
but he was too young this year.

Eventually, the girls (Ellis Anne and Anya) will be sharing a room. I have been working on getting it ready. We have bought them twin beds and are dreaming that one day they will both get in their beds and go right to sleep and everyone will have sweet dreams. I know, I know, who am I kidding? It's worth a try though. These pictures are of Anya trying out her new bed. We are waiting on a mattress pad cover and sheets and are hoping to try out the bed for Anya over the next couple of weeks. Ellis Anne will be moving to another room for awhile to sleep while we first train Anya to sleep in the bed. I'll let you know how it goes. I tried to include a picture of the beds, but sometimes (most of the time), blogger can be maddening.



  1. I could seriously spend the day here looking at pics of your girls!!! They just make me smile!!!

    And Ellis Anne is October 08' too(saw your comment)!!! Gosh, there are enough to start a club! I know 3 others!Not counting Em, and Ellis Anne. What a hoot!!!

  2. Love seeing how Anya is doing! She and Ellis Anne look like twins. Are they the same age?
