A good kind of busy


Thank you all so much for 'delurking'. It has been so fun to ‘meet’ so many of you and peek in on your blogs. I wish I had more time to read and get to know you all even more. I hope too that many of you were able to find each others blogs. I think one of the greatest blessings of adopting (besides the obvious- our awesome children) are the friendships we meet along the way. I just love being a part of this adoption/blogging world. I have to admit though I am pretty blown away by and a little embarrassed because all of your sweet comments. I totally didn’t expect or intend for that to happen. What a blessing to hear such kind words but as I have said many times in the past- if you see anything good here- it is all God.

Life at our house has been busy lately- but a really good kind of busy. Todd and I are enjoying every second of falling in love with Mr. Carson. I could stare into this big brown eyes forever. It’s been so neat to learn more and more about his little personality and see him becoming more comfortable in our home. What an amazing gift adoption is. The kids too are crazy about him- although I am feeling somewhat like a referee trying to make sure everyone gets a chance to sit next to him at the table or in the car. :0) To say he fits perfectly into our family doesn’t even begin to describe it. God is so good.

I will leave you with a sweet picture of Carson checking out the ornaments on our tree. There is nothing more I could ask for this Christmas. We are so very, very blessed.

Amy, You seem to enjoy crafts with your kids, so I had to pass this along. I just discovered shrink paper/plastic. I drew out Christmas images or traced em from coloring pages: stockings, angels, wreaths, christmas trees, etc. The kids colored using markers. Punch a hole to hang. We stick it in the oven and in a few seconds we see it slither and shrivel and voila a Christmas ornament. My kids can't get enough. Best. Liz

Oh how great is OUR GOD!

Love you - big hugs!

So excited to watch God move mountains for your family and to build it one by one with His children perfectly picked out for you!

Ohhh, that picture...I just want to lean in & smooch on that cheek!

I need to investigate Liz's craft-thingy! Looks fun & my big kids would probably be into it, too! ;o)

Keep soaking in the gifts of God during this beautiful Christmas season. Love ~ Dardi

Wow Amy, 84 comments, that is crazy. I told you, you are special and one of a kind. Love the little man's photo. He has a nice head shapy:)

Haven't checked your blog in a while, wow! Congrats! I am so happy for you and your newest addition. I pray his adoption process goes smoothly so he can begin his new life with his new family!
