March 31, 2011 is the day we met our precious son, Samuel.

Covered in scabies, with a double ear infection and burning up.

He was pretty scared of us, we loved him instantly.

Today, one year later we continue to thank God for this precious gift.  (he's pretty much our favorite child, don't tell the other kids)

Great Day

Our first family bike ride of the year! Everyone did great!

 "Mmmmm, I love coffee"
 Walking around town.
Looks like Sam wasn't super excited about the group picture.

Our whole family is excited about spring break, but no one quite as much as Juner! (showing off his green mustache)
Bugging everyone... 
 Loving Samtastic.
 Smashing Sissy.
 If you need us today we'll be riding bikes, going to the Popcorn Shop, playing at the Zip Line Park, hanging with our favorite neighbors and enjoying our life. So thankful for my family.

Stop Growing!

I stumbled upon this picture last night. My tiny babies are so sweet, I soooo wish they were that little again.

Macker has been known to be pretty rotten a little spicy but when it comes to Sam, he's the best brother.

Playing catch!
 Good job.
 Here you go.
"Soooo proud of you, I have to squeeze your face off" 

He's gonna be a star.
 Sam has been sick for DAYS (8+ but who's counting) but this afternoon I took him back to the doctor and he now has a double ear infection and sinus infection. I am thankful for the antibiotics and hopeful for a healthy family in the NEAR future.
Green smoothies make everything better.

Please Watch

I don't usually link random videos but these really touched my heart. I saw this on a blog I stalk and I just had to share. It's worth your 9 minutes. This is the second part. (also worth watching)

Eating a fancy treat. They called it fancy, I call it sick, but super cheap at Aldi.
Hey guys, please smile for a picture? 
What a bunch of grubby looking kids. Love them!! 
My Juner wrote me a note this morning. I'm thankful for the note or I might have forgotten to feed him breakfast....
