Random Pictures from the Weekend

We really had a great weekend this past holiday weekend.

Here Braeden is figuring out (very quickly) the ins and outs of a Nintendo DS. Whose DS would this be??? That would be GRANDMA's!!! LOL Crack me up!!! My mom loves this thing! :) And now the kids do too (remember we don't have video games!). :) But this was a lifesaver at the party. 3 1/2 hours was a bit long for him! :)

Olivia however became the baby watcher. :) She LOVES my cousin's little one (J)!!! And J was mesmerized by Olivia and her hair, she watched her nonstop!!!

My cousin and aunt are big into rummage sales right now. They are loving finding things, especially kids clothes and accessories. They gave us bags of things they found for the kids!!! Here Braeden is modeling the awesome Superman blow up outfit they got him!!! It was hilarious. Unfortunately, Mr. Sensitive didn't like feeling laughed at. :(

After opening all the goodies, we grabbed out a couple things so that the kids could change out of their "party" clothes to go out back. They were able to feed the horses...

ride the 4 wheeler...

act like "farmers"...

watch each other ride the 4 wheeler...

and they fed all the barn cats! :) Boy that was BIG fun for my crew!!! :)

The next night we met up with family at the BEST pizza place!!! Olivia got to play with baby J, who got a great grab of her barrettes!!! :)

That night at the hotel we bypassed the swimming as the water was FREEZING. We went into the little arcade instead, a novelty for them. We loved the air hockey and played quite a few games, even Liam got in a few shots! :)

And here is Olivia as mom sent in a great goal! :) (I ended up winning because she hit in 5 of my 7 goals herself!!!) :)

A fun- and family- filled weekend!!!

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
