I am a proud mom 3 ways. By marriage, birth, and adoption (in that order). I became mom to Megan in 1997 when I married her daddy. I became mom to Noah in 2001 when I gave birth to him. And finally I became mom to twins, Dalton (aka Moose) and Devin in 2005 when we adopted them. This is the story of my life....it's a story worth telling!
It's that time of year again! Time to deck the halls and get out all the fun Christmas decorations. My boys love playing with everything and rearranging all the lovely items. I tried to tell Dalton stockings aren't really socks and his reply was "but Mom, people wear these"! If you say so! Then Devin had to get in on the action with his non-matcing socks. Now we are off to Walmart to buy some super glue. So far we've broken 2 Hallmark ornaments and one nativity set. Poor Mary and Joseph need their heads back!
I am so thankful for these kids! What would I do without them? Sometimes I get frustrated and yell (really loud), and sometimes I don't live in the moment. But God is good. All the time. And this is my adorable new niece, Aslynn Faith. She is a cutie and my future shopping partner (hopefully!).
We went into Bass Pro Shop in Ohio on our way home from our fall break getaway. Steve went in for hunting shells (they didn't have what he needed), but we came out of the store with some fun pictures and pumpkin birdhouses.
Who says pumpkins have to be orange?!? While the boys were sitting there painting, I noticed the majority of pumpkins were not being painted orange. I silenced (as best as I could) the urge to tell them what colors to paint. So we ended up with a blue pumpkin and a rainbow pumpkin. Love it!
