We are livin' and lovin' the beautiful life that the Lord has blessed us with! I feel funny posting about anything until Dalton has his forever family. I don't want to take away from him in any way but I know the Lord is moving so we continue to pray hard and advocate hard!!

Our little man, Solomon, is continuing to do fabulous! Ohhh, to know what he thinks about all of this. We often laugh and imagine him thinking, "We didn't do that in the orphanage!!" The proof is below in pictures!

We all dressed us in 70's garb to celebrate my parents 40th anniversary! Talk about a blast and a beautiful time of celebration. My older sister put together a slide show of the past 40 years & I was overwhelmed with the blessing of having parents that love each other so much and to have parents that have stayed completely committed to each other! The legacy that has been given to our family because of their love and commitment is an unbelievable gift! Their strong, godly marriage has been such a beautiful example of how the Lord intended marriage to be.

My beautiful, amazing parents! My mom's shirt was her actual wedding dress 40 years ago (she shortened it into a blouse many, many moons ago). My daddy is wearing the same jacket he wore when they were newly married.
All the grandbabies minus Bella girl...she was sleeping :( We need to photoshop her in ;)
My sissy and her hubby...hilarious! She looks so much like my mom there!
Not sure what those flower things are on his glasses!

We had so much fun carving our pumpkins and I KNOW they didn't do this in the orphanage. Solomon had sooo much fun. He was a little perplexed at first but then dove right in :)

And of course, they all LOVED dressing up for our Hallelujah party!
Okay...I'm done boring you with a zillion pictures of my kiddos :) So, that's what we've been up to!
