About Me

My photo
My husband and I, the Dynamic Duo, have been married since 2003. We've weathered the storm of chronic disease (diagnosis 2006), infertility (diagnosis 2007), turning 30 (2006/2007 respectively) a first adoption (2009) of a tender hearted, compassionate Ukrainian BIG boy (born 2006), who has told us he'd like a baby sister, baby brother, big brother, and REALLY big sister. We recently completed our second Ukrainian adoption journey, which brought us a daughter (born 2005). We'll see what else God brings our way!

Eli's Birthday Fun

A few days before Eli's birthday I let him open his gifts from Bop and Grandpa Stobie.  

They even got a little something for Amelia!

Here he is reading...he LOVES reading, especially since this was a Chapter Book for big kids.

That's ma boy!

On his birthday, he got to wear a fun birthday hat.  

And of course, we had cake and ice cream with presents from Mom, Dad!  Grandma Karl even came into town.

Fun Pictures

Mid Febrauary:  Having fun while on break :)  A mustache tatoo that made Eli look a little like Hitler...

And Spiderman tatoos make us pose like Popeye...

And make us pose like we're constipated...

And like a wrestler.

Then there's the girl who decided to choose very different places:  The wrists...

And the calf.

Bop and Grandpa Stobie sent toys that they LOVED!  Eli had to put his truck together right away.

And Amelia was Cinderella for quite a while.  By the end of the evening, she had taken off the rubber band off her hair and within a week, she had torn off an arm (not fixable).  Lol  She's true to form!

Early March:  Eli fell and whacked himself.  Doesn't he look so pathetic?  He's really a tough guy.  He was just really tired when I took this picture!

And I got a new "rockstar" haircut!
