I googled cuteness and looked what popped up...

Hannah..looking too grown up at almost 11.

Claire with that wonderful pouty mouth at 30 months. Growing faster everyday.

Google really knows their stuff!!!! Happy July everyone. We are bracing for really hot west Texas summer here. We are having MAJOR construction in our city and they have had to shut down a major water line. We have been on water restriction (no watering, no filling of pools, etc.) for 2 1/2 weeks. It has been killing more than flowers and grass around this home. Hannah can not believe they would choose to do this in the summer. It caused quite a stink with the landscapers and nurseries here in town. It was really done without warning. We hope to be off restriction by mon. Then the girls will probably stay outside in the sprinkler for the rest of the summer. This summer also marks the beginning of Hannah joining the youth group at our church. Yes, it is what we all want, our babies grow to be fine young people and want to leave us. It just hurts that it seems to happen so fast these days. We have joined a new church and we have just finished VBS. Hannah loved it so much. She even stayed for an extra celebration movie after it was all over. She loved being so independent and meeting new teens. Sigh...I can see the end of childhood in the distance...it it still not here, but rapidly approaching. I do like this new side of her. She is more responsible and loves to take care of her own things. I don't seem to pick up after her as much any more....YEA!!

Claire wants to try the potty again. Only for a candy. She is crazy hilarious that she will say in a questioning voice...."potty?? candy??" "no potty??? CANDY" I guess she has made the connection. Now we try to potty 900 times a day. She hates having a poopy diaper and will immediatly go get a new diaper and the wipes. Summer was my goal, so we will take the easy laid back road to big girl pantyville.

Happy 4th (coming up)!! Hug a soldier and wave a flag at a parade. I will post pics of Claire's first parade. I hope I get a smile or two.

At our house Potty goes along with M&M's ! ;)

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
