Hallie came over tonight and Allie and Hallie had fun carving Allie's first pumpkin! Hallie is my friend, Kari's, 5 1/2 year old daughter who Allie looks up to more than you'd ever imagine! We had fun and I hope to carve more pumpkins next weekend!
Sarah is our 16 year old neighbor from our old house and we just love her (and her family)! She's almost like a little sister to me and a big sister to Allie (I suppose she could be like a daughter, but I like to think that I'm not old enough for that one). We are lucky enough to be able to still spend time together every so often. Today was one of those days and Allie just couldn't get enough of Sarah!
Sounds like our wait is now being extended for baby E. They are now saying that we are looking at "at least a 24 month wait if not more". We were thinking we were getting closer to the call (at least we thought it would be sometime this school year)...looks like we were wrong. Sigh...
We had a very busy Labor Day weekend that included a wedding, lots of family time, a little shopping, and a parade in Tracy. Allie enjoyed the parade for the most part, but decided that she's scared to death of clowns! She spent the end of the parade on Kari's/my lap which ever one was as far away from the clowns as possible. Oh well...she enjoyed getting candy and daddy enjoyed eating it!
On March 26, 2008 our lives were forever changed by the birth and adoption of our first little miracle.
Our second little miracle arrived home from India on November 30, 2011.
It's our dream to welcome more children into our family through adoption, but for now we are enjoying being a family of four!
