One Year!

It's been one year since Tryana and Kalysta joined our family. What a year! God has grown and provided for us in ways we never could have imagined. We are so thankful for these 2 little firecrackers!

We celebrated by going to John's Incredible Pizza. T & K have never seen anything like that before. Wow!

Here are some pictures from our celebration of our family.

Christmas Cookies This Year


About this time last year we wrote a post about baking Christmas cookies together and how we were excited to teach our new little sisters to do it with us next time.  When we wrote about it last year, we had already received our referral and were preparing to travel to Rwanda, but I still found it hard to imagine that T and K would ever be with us.  But now they are here with us and we have enjoyed doing many things together with them, including baking Christmas cookies! 

Yesterday we looked forward to making cookies all morning until we were finally ready to decorate our cookies.  We all had a lot of fun and I think T and K had as much fun as the rest of us did, if not more!

Here is a picture of us with some of the cookies we made:

Lost Tooth


I lost my first tooth last night. I am so excited! The one next to it is almost ready to come out, too.
