In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

We're Waiting...

Well, we are hunkered (is that a real word?) down and waiting for our blizzard. It is snowing pretty well, but we aren't experiencing the high winds that the newscasters threatened us with. This winter has definitely motivated us to do what needs to be done to have the whole-house generator hooked up before hurricane season this fall. We've been blessed so far to not lose power, but since we are in the middle of no-where, it could be a long and painful wait for it to be restored if we did have it knocked out.
The best part of the storm is all the clean kids and clean laundry I had last night. There's nothing better than a fresh baby from the bathtub to snuggle with.

Thursday night, JD and I headed to town with three children to run errands before the storm. We found little girl dresses and pajamas at Wal-Mart for $3 on clearance. I meant to buy Tori and Julia each two dresses, but came home with three for Julia and only one for Tori since I didn't read the tags carefully. Julia was thrilled and wore all three of hers yesterday. Here she is modeling one of them.

I really love dressing my little girls. I'm going to be really sad when they get big enough that they don't want to wear dresses or coordinate with each other. Julia is the queen of girly-girls; she seldom will wear pants.

Have a happy weekend. I plan on painting the dining room if we don't lose power.

  1. Mercy has that same dress that Julia's sporting. She got it for Christmas along with some grey legging type pants to go with. She already has a grey turtle neck shirt and we put that underneath so that it can be a winter outfit. It's quite cute.
