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.

The 31st

I went to the harvest party dressed as a zoo-keeper, and JD as the zoo-keeper's wife; however, the picture is so bad that I am not going to post it. I did have a cute collection of animals, however. Elijah was a snake, Bella a fierce tiger and Selah a darling giraffe that she and Aunt Deb created together the weekend I was out of town.

Nathan was a baby shark. He has been referred to as a baby shark by our swim coach since he was born, because Gabriel and Alayna met on the Shark swim-team at the age of 12! There have been other sharks marry, but he's the first shark baby.

Tori was Waldo - 

James a mime -

And Julia a bike riding M&M.

 Moriah and Chris dressed up as M&Ms to go to another party the weekend before, but since Chris has school on Monday nights, Moriah turned into a watermelon to accompany Alei the pinapple, and Alayna the kiwi.

Here is their awkward fruit salad pose.
 Alyssa went to work, dressed as normal, other than the fine moustache.

You may think this shouldn't have taken days to post, but it did.
