There are no words

I struggle to find the words to write.  Today, the most amazing thing happened.  We received our guardianship and should be "traveling soon."  We are over the moon excited that within a few weeks, our little peanut is going to be in our arms!
For those of you reading this, please say a prayer tonight for all of the kids who are waiting for families and those who have been matched with families but aren't home yet.  We've "met" so many amazing people through our three year journey to our second child.  Each and every one of them holds a special place in our hearts.  We feel so blessed to have such amazing friends, family, and coworkers.  Without them, these past 3 years would have been impossible.  Thank you all so much for your love and prayers.  We're coming C!  Mommy and daddy will be there in a few weeks!  We love you so much already and can't wait to hold you in our arms and tell you that we will always be there for you!


MEA project

I had two days off of school for MEA break this past week and I worked on a project I've been wanting to do for a while.  It's a 20 X 16 canvas and I used canvas letters that were cut out by the Cricut.  I then painted over them, peeled them off and distressed the sign.  I love how it turned out (I love subway art!) and I can't wait to make one for each of the girls' rooms!


Fall fun!!!



I'm all done with my international travel shots as of today!  Cory should be finished by the end of the day tomorrow!  We're excited to have one more thing behind us!


First family picture

One of my first graders made me a picture yesterday and it was so sweet it almost made me cry!  I loved it so much that I asked her if she'd add a christmas theme to it.  I'm thinking it'd be perfect for the front of our Christmas cards this year!  Isn't it sweet?!?
