HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO US!!


Daddy's first meeting!!


Sonja is crying her head off. She has only "super napped" in our arms twice. Please pray that this evening isn't another repeat of last time!

Last time she was up from 11:30pm-5am! Zoiks!

Even though she hasn't been able to fully be comfortable with us yet, it still is a great day! My husband and I are celebrating 15 years. We have had our challenges of infertility, parenting and finances, but with God we have made it through. He continues to carry us into the next 15 years! We are so grateful for all He has done! The past 15 years have been amazing! God has certainly blessed us with a beautiful home, two wonderful children and each other! We are overwhelmed with God's love today!!

Joel continues to love me despite my goofups!! I had three bags packed, two carry ons packed and I thought I had everything we could ever need on this trip. I forgot Joel's pants!!!! He has the jeans that he traveled in and a pair of dressy ones for the Embassy! Joel will soon be the new receipient of a couple of pairs of pants from the local mall!! Yes, those of you who are counting, there's another "forgetful" moment that you can chalk up!!

Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary. I'll sing to you later...

ha ha ha ha about the pants.

And I laughed at the Whau-ta-mala comment. What happened to the G? But I love the way they say it.

So glad you all are together. Only thing missing is Nico. Not too long and it'll all be complete.

Yea! Happy Anniversary! What an incredibly special time for you all.

Poor Joel- no pants. That's one of my biggest fears when I travel. Not so much pants, but my makeup. Yikes!

Let's pray for a peaceful night :)

I will be in prayer for her adjustment. I know how hard it is to see them struggle.

You forgot the poor guy's pants???? I would have loved to be in the hotel room with y'all when that conversation took place! That's a classic!
