We survived April!!!

W2's birthday bash!

W1's gifts-don't forget his new puppy!

The birthday month is over-after many celebrations! The boys had a great time turning 10 and 8 and will be writing thank you notes for the entire month of May!! I have already decided that it is destiny that our daughter will be an April baby, as well.

Dad B also completed the sun room and deck additions. They look so great and make the back yard seem so much bigger. Now, it is time to move...ha-ha. Those of you who know us, know that we like to move!!

I have started looking for pink bedding-our next big project is to fix up the baby's room and move W1 to his new room-he is so sweet to agree to switch rooms.

We went to view the World Vision Experience-step into Africa exhibit today. It was both heartbreaking and uplifting. I kept thinking of our daughter in Ethiopia and how her life could very well be affected by AIDS. Walking through the exhibit it was impossible to not feel so lucky that we have so much-way more than just the basics-and every day we take things for granted. Driving across town, picking up our children from school, having food in our cabinets, a home...

Well, Happy Mother's Day to everyone-hopefully, next year at this time I will have a daughter who calls me, "Mommy!"

  1. Just wanted to say hello. I came across your blogsite by accident and see that you are from NC. We are a family of five and we are also adopting a baby girl from Ethiopia. We also went to NCSU!! Our timelines are very similar. We started the process in September and were placed on the wait list in April. Would love to be in touch...our blog is
