Puzzle queen

I think I mentioned earlier that back in October, while in MN, we discovered Addie's love of puzzles. Well, I think they have now surpassed books as her absolute favorite thing to do. When I go in her room in the morning, I catch her on the floor doing puzzles. It's so neat to see her learn them & get better at them. (quickly too!)

Winnie the who?

Pooh! Pooh! That's what Addie demands as she points at the TV and graciously brings us the remote. This occurs every day after she gets home from daycare & right before dinner. She loves the show "My Friends Tigger & Pooh." On this particular day, she decided she must wear her Pooh bib and is showing us the Pooh on her pillow.

Wild wild west

Check out all the tumble weeds that blew up into our yard after the strong winds earlier this week. Addie helped us throw them back over our fence so they could blow elsewhere...what else could we do?!

my heart cries

This is a reminder to us what a true gift from God our wonderful & healthy daughter is.


As one family looses their beloved daughter, another one gains a son who desperately needs a loving family. With the first story, I sobbed as my heart broke for this family. It's truly unimaginable. I also cry tears of joy for our dear friends, the Brittons, as they are in Ethiopia this very moment, probably staring at & soaking in their new son, Malachi.

Both experiences, though vastly different, are filled with too many emotions for words.
