While I intended on posting my children's big news today, I can't, because I can not find the cord to JD's camera to down-load the pictures of Gabriel at his event and I am waiting for a friend to email me pictures about Alyssa's accomplishment; so I bring you small, less important, but fun-never-the-less news.
The first is that Elijah has been busy building houses and roads out of scrap-wood all over the deck -
He is able to do so only because the deck stairs have been framed and are now being built. There are no railings yet, so Elijah knows he can only go as far as he is in this picture.
The second exciting news is I posted our family on the new van. A few people (like older children) thought that it might be slightly embarrassing, but I obviously disagree. I think it adds some character to an otherwise very boring "church" van.
Check out these stickers. This one says, "Adoption is about Love - Does your family tree have room for one more?"
This one was made for us - "Family - many colors, lots of love"
And lastly, I put JD and I and the 11 children and the 4 dogs across the back. We decided to omit the cats, since we didn't want to appear CRAZY.
Don't worry about the fact I'm posting the license plate - it's on it's way out since we thought of a great personalized plate. We had blessedw8 before Elijah and we've had JDJen9 since then, so I wanted to go with no names and no numbers and JD thought of a great one.
