This past month

It has been a while since I last posted! In this last month, we had a garage sale - it went well! A big thanks to both of our parents who came to help out and to all our extended families for donating to our garage sale! What a blessing our family is!

We did meet our birthmom this month as well. Please be in prayer about our adoption. Pray that everything will work out in the Lord's timing and that we will not feel anxious and rest in HIM!

Lilly is a pumpkin fairy for Halloween this year! She went to a Halloween party and we have taken her to our church's Fall Festival. She enjoyed a few things - the train ride (we went twice), the suckers, and the music. She also got a temporary tattoo that she enjoyed showing off! We tried Fried Oreos at the festival and let me tell you.....they were wonderful! If you ever get the chance to try them out - do! They are so yummy! (Lilly enjoyed the powdered sugar!)

We also went to an old church friend's little boy's birthday party - Tate turned 3! For favors, they gave away these instruments (clarinet, I think) and Lilly loves to blow on it and march around (here she is after the fall festival in tights, bloomers, my shoes, and her horn!)

It's Fall!

Well, what have we been up to lately? This last weekend, Nina and Papa kept Lilly. Brian and I went out to eat and saw Fireproof. This is a great movie and I recommend all married couples to go check it out, well, really anyone! It challenges you to examine your marriage and make sure you are on God's track and not our own track! There is a Love Dare challenge book that Brian and I want to do sometime. What a great time to reconnect with my Brian! Lilly is now 22 months old! She continually amazes us with new things she can say and do. She is playing so much more independently now - loves her baby dolls and stuffed animals (she loves to put her diapers on them and feed them and put them night night). She can say please (peaz), thank you, and bless you when you sneeze (bess you). I can't believe soon she will be 2!

We got Lilly a little table and chairs to do her coloring and play dough, instead of always sitting at our eating table to do crafts. I think she likes it, she is saying PINK! I think she likes that color.

Brian took Lilly to Chuck E Cheese's for the first time last night while I was teaching. I think they had a good time!

We are getting ready for our neighborhood garage sale this weekend. My parents are coming to help out too, which will be great!

This week we are going to meet our birthmom. Keep us in your prayers that everything goes smoothly!
