Just because they are only kids once

I love my kids. I love how they can take a plain 'ol dinner and turn it into something special. Last night for dinner we added some of this fun and creativity and had "Pancakes and Pretend" night. We ate a mound full of pancakes, laughed ourselves silly and everyone (including mom and dad) dressed up and pretended they were something they were not. It was my pleasure to dine with the cutest cowboy (on a horse no less) a strong army man, a beautiful dancer, a sweet princess, and an adorable cheerleader. (Along with their handsome daddy and awesome big brothers and sisters).
Miss Havyn- sporting her cheerleader Build a Bear outfit and her "bling" pacifier-( hand crafted by her big sister Addisyn).
And I think she might just be trying to do the splits?
My handsome cowboy...
Our delicious pancakes...
My cute boys enjoying their pancakes...with their pink tea cups no less.

Sweet sisters... the inspiration behind it all.
Thank you sweet babies for always making my life so much fun. I adore you all.

Oh so sweet, great idea the kids look like they had fun. What an adorable bunch you've got Amy.

And Haven is the cutest little cheerleader I've ever seen!

They are all so cute, but that Havyn is just gorgeous in that picture! What a beautiful group of kiddos you have. But I tell you that all the time, don't I?

You crack me up! Where did you get that cheer outfit for Havyn? It is so cute. I bet you used to be a cheerleader.. I know the kids are such a blessing and they can turn anything into amazing.

Hi Amy, You are such an inspiration to me! My adoption journey has been so emotional. At times we have felt that we can’t go on. We find ourselves in a perpetual state of “wait” and I personally don’t do “waiting” real well. I trust God, and looking back on my life, He has ALWAYS had a plan, better than any plan I could imagine. I just wanted you to know that I prayed for your family today. You give me hope through your faith.

May God continue to bless you,

Lisa Wheeler
