It seems that the courts have opened earlier than expected. They opened yesterday, so hopefully we will hear about our court date sometime soon!!!! It will be so nice to have a expected time to travel and go get our little man. Pray that we get a quick court date and that it is successful. [...]
Don’t forget, free shipping ends tomorrow for astitchofmine.etsy.com. I am also working on some fun Halloween things to stock October 1st.
Thankfully Grammy and Papa were able to research and find a way to put some of the Precious Moments back together. All of these ones just had heads knocked off, except for the stork one which was in many more pieces. Seven are back together! So happy! Thanks Mom and Dad!
Last night we had a nice fire in our fire pit. The kids love to roast marshmallows and the new pit makes it easy to have a small fire. I went inside to make dinner, tilapia, oven fries and zucchini, while Bill and the kids set up the campfire. We ate our dinner and then [...]
It is amazing to me how a sound, smell or sight can trigger such intense memories. Such an amazing bit of instinct that we carry with us. Each time I am driving along and an ambulance or fire engine pull out in front of me I can barely breathe, tears well up in my eyes, [...]
This year for Annie and Kimberly’s birthday we were met with a tough decision. Annie and Kimberly really wanted a BIG Halloween costume party. They wanted all their preschool friends, and since they are all four that means their families as well, all their other friends and their parents, and their family. They had pretty [...]
Today Mimi was holding the picture of her brother for about an hour. She just adores him so much. She says he is her best buddy and her best brother. She cannot wait for him to get home.
Today is Sandi’s birthday! I took the day off and we’ve been having a normal, relaxing day. That’s how we like our adult birthdays ’round here. Gift-wise, it was marked by several Fiestaware pieces and a start back on building up the Precious Moments collection by Kimberly. We had lunch at Red Lobster (Annie ate [...]
“Look! It’s an eagle and it’s fried!” — Annie She was looking at a bronze eagle atop a flag pole. I’m thinking she was either recalling the scene from Aladdin where Iago is scorched by Jafar or the one from Mulan where Mushu burns up Shan-Yu’s falcon in the Emperor’s Palace.
I got the okay from Baby K’s mom to post about her from time to time on my blog! She is so adorable and we really enjoy sharing our days with her. Here she is with Kimberly reading a book to her. This little lady is only one month older than Paul and by fate [...]
Do we miss Paul? Duh! Of course we do. It is amazing to be in love with a little man who is thousands of mile away, who you have never met and only know a very limited amount of information about. But it has happened and we are madly in love with him and miss [...]
The playroom is either in two states, completely clean or complete disaster! Unfortunately we never find a happy medium between the two. Yesterday I sent the girls up to get working on their playroom while I made dinner. They were fooling around and had to come downstairs once to regroup because they thought running around [...]
Finally we were able to send off our packet today to formally accept our son’s referral. I am finally able to breathe easy and be over the moon in love with my little man. This is a great and wonderful feeling. Guys in case you missed it, I AM GOING TO HAVE A SON!!!!! A [...]
“Mom, I want my nails like Aunt Steph’s.” ~ Mimi I have to assume she just wants them to be long since I am not about to let her get manicured tips.
I know I have talked so much about the amazing twists and turns that life gives and how they all amaze me and continue to humble me to the fact that I am not in charge of my own destiny. Recently there has been another twist and turn. While calling people last week to tell [...]
I just got home from Urgent Care. Earlier today Kimberly pulled the curio cabinet down by the cord. She was trying to see what it went to or something like that. Thankfully she was out of the way but it grazed Annie’s arm. I took her to the Urgent Care and thankfully nothing is fractured, [...]
Each night as I lay down to go to sleep I cannot help but think of Paul. He is waking up to see the new day. A day where nannies are caring for him and keeping him safe. I don’t know what the day holds for him but I know that he is there. It [...]
Tonight after dinner we made donuts for a special treat. It was the first time the kids had made them. We used a can of regular biscuits and popped a hole in the middle. I fried them in crisco and the kids put them in either powdered sugar or cinnamon and sugar. They loved them.
“Mommy is Baby Paul in surgery today” ~ Mimi “Why do you say that?” ~ Mommy “When is baby brother going to have surgery so he can pop out of the other lady’s tummy and come home?” ~ Mimi My cute girl. She is so ready to be a big sister! She knows that she [...]
I have always loved to dress Annie and Kimberly alike. I think there is nothing cuter than twins wearing the same clothes. I was a little sad last year when Annie and Kimberly wanted to dress different. I never said anything to them about it, just bought them the outfits that they wanted and allowed [...]« Previous Entries
