On November 13, 2006 our family was made complete by a very special baby girl a continent away. She looked at me with her big eyes then leaned around to get a look at her daddy. For a brief moment her little lower lip quivered but she didn’t shed a tear. She grinned her way into our hearts and we have never been the same.
What an absolutely beautiful girl she has grown into! Those big, black eyes, her little dimple and long silky hair only make her beautiful on the outside. But the thoughtfulness she shows for her brothers, the hugs and snuggles she so freely gives and her sensitive spirit make her beautiful on the inside! We are so very blessed!
Ironically, November is National Adoption Month. We are so fortunate to know personally the gift that adoption is. To know the way it not only changes a child’s life, but the way it has changed ours. We will never be the same…

We were the “guest” team…
With 2:04 left in the game the Sharks got one last touchdown! It was an exciting game that just seemed to go back and forth depending on who had the ball. Fortunately, for us, we had the ball last! Way to go Sharks! We’re proud of you Caden!

This year we had a Whoopie Cushion a Ninja and a BLUE Butterfly. We were lucky to have Rick home again so that I could go out for the first run then he went for the second (and longer) one. Works for me!
In other happenings; Trace seems to have gotten the message and things are going better at school. He’s a good kid, just needed a little reminder.
With Caden we have made some changes in his life that I wish we had made years ago. No need lamenting what could have been though – now we just look forward to the future! He is a new kid and it is truly amazing. I’m having fun with him and enjoying having him around now – WOW!
Today both boys began their adventures in orthodontia. Trace had it relatively easy with just an upper spacer being put in. Poor kid didn’t get much sympathy though when his brother had four teeth pulled and a spacer put in! Next week he goes in for his upper spacer which should be a piece of cake after today.
Coming up next will be Caden’s football Championship game on Saturday. We are so proud of him and his team for making it two years in a row! Trace’s friend birthday party and final soccer game next week. Whew – then life slows down, right?
