West Texas wedding and dancing

Hannah dancing with her uncle Geoff.

The girls trying to swing dance

Watching cows before the ceremony

The dog had to be in on the ceremony too.


We have been away to celebrate my MILs wedding. It was a wonderful backyard service with family and friends. We also had short horn cattle watching..more on that later. We celebrated the 4th with food and fireworks. It was all enjoyed by everyone. It was fun meeting new members of our extended family and getting to share stories about the new couple. During the ceremony Claire kept saying..."COW?? Eating?" So I kept shoving food in her mouth to try and keep her quiet. Who knew that having cows at your wedding would be so disruptive. We then had a reception down at the barn with dancing and fajitas. Delicious. It didn't hurt that the beer was flowing freely as well. The girls had a great time with aunts uncles and cousins all spoiling them for four days.

Cousins enjoying the music.

We also took a moment to celebrate Claire's first 4th as an American citizen. We thanked God for allowing her to come here and enjoy the freedom that American has to offer. I hope to have our boy home for a 4th celebration in a short time. Hopefully next yr but I don't want to set my hopes on that.

Hope everyone had a great 4th.

What great pictures. Looks like a great time! Lucky you! ;)

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
