It's been an entire year!!!


It's hard to believe that we have been a family of 4 for exactly 1 year today!!! I don't think I can even begin to describe what this year has done for our family!! All I can say is that adoption is an incredible gift from God. Grace is AMAZING!!! She's funny-- seriously, everyone says that she's just one funny girl!! She is sweet and loving, and currently she's frighteningly obedient. She can be told to stop doing something, bring something to momma, put something down, etc.... and she does!!! I'm enjoying it now, because I know it will change very quickly!!!! :) I can go on and on... and maybe I will in a future post, but for tonight (as we have just returned home from a 4 day get away-- and Jake's b-day party is tomorrow!!!!)..... I will share a few pics of the past year!





Then.....

Now!!!

Hi there! I just figured out that your blog and a few emails we have exchanged are the same people/family. YAY!! What a gorgeous family! One day I hope that is us as well! Take care Mindy

Congratulations on your one-year anniversary! And Happy Birthday to Jake! What a week of celebration.

I'm in Arizona, so getting up there in Sept. isn't as easy as a long car drive! But I'm not ruling it out!

These photos are just adorable!! It is amazing it has been a year already! What a precious gift we have all been given! I was just thinking how everyone in Ethiopia would hardly be able to believe it if they saw Grace!
