Portraits!



I LOVE these pictures of my kids!! These were taken as part of a Celebrate Adoption program where certain participating photographers give you a free sitting for families home with their newly adopted children along with a free set of proofs!

I LOVE them!! We used Lindsey DeYoung...here's her website.

Here's a sampling of the pics she took of my kiddos.

My Big Boy Turns 8!!





Wow, I have an 8 year old...doesn't seem possible. Cuz that would make me old. :)

Jake had a great birthday...even though most of it was spent at school. He is so sweet opening his presents...he's completely grateful for everything he receives. I love that about him.

Happy Birthday my sweet boy...thank you for making me a momma.

Happy Birthday Sara!!





I can hardly believe it...my big girl is five years old today. She is growing and changing and becoming quite the little lady. We love her so much and can't wait to see what her future will bring! Happy Birthday sweet girl...we love you! She was so excited about her presents...especially her fish tank that she's been asking me to get her for weeks now. Tomorrow we'll go get fish to put in it.

Sara's First Day of School & More Tessa Pics






Sara's first day of school was Wednesday. She's not a huge fan of new adventures, but she did really well. She even rode the bus home for the first time...I was so proud of her!

Tessa has been doing really well. She is playing more (doesn't need mommy to hold her as much) and growing a lot. I'm convinced she's gained a couple of pounds in the last few weeks...most of it in her cheeks! :)

First Day of School! And bonus bathtime pics...





Tessa got a new tub seat from a generous neighbor so we gave it a try tonight. She loves water! I love her sweet, goofy little personality. She continues to make us all fall more and more in love with her every day.

Jake is an official second grader!! I'm so proud of him. He tackles new endeavors with such enthusiasm. I envy him that. :) He was very happy this morning as he got the teacher he wanted, and later this year, they get to dissect a sheep's eyeball! What could possibly be better??
