The Rest of Winter

We know you are all anxiously waiting to hear more news, and so are we!  We are telling people that when we know, YOU WILL KNOW!  We will be screaming it from the rooftops and blowing up Facebook :)  Until then, we wait and pray that each day is going to be THE DAY.  In the meantime, here are a few pictures of the last couple of months.  Love to you all! 
Valentine's Day was filled with love and kisses and heart shaped egg-in-a-nests and our first go at homemade Valentine boxes.  I married a guy who sets his Valentine box standards rather high.  They were fun, but lots of work.  We are already planning for next year ;)
As one of our amazing Christmas presents this year, the Hubers got us a membership to Union Station in Kansas City.  It includes Science City and a discount to the traveling exhibits (Pompeii).  I see lots of "science field-trips" in our future.  Thank you Nana and Papa!
 Joni got reading glasses.  Could she be any cuter?
 We took a field-trip with some other homeschool kids and had a fun Dr. Suess Day.  The girls made Oobleck, built towers to hold "10 Apples up on Top," and we ate green eggs and ham.
 
We went on our first camping trip of the year!  We love it and have to carve time out of our crazy schedules to make it happen but when we do, we enjoy it so.  And its not camping without Shing-fling-ding for breakfast....and this time we had a truck load of it :)
One of our favorite things about living in Leavenworth is the small town feel but the big city isn't far away.  We go to Kansas City every now and then and when friends want to tag along its even more fun.  We hit up Fritz's this week and a free traveling play center (this quarter's theme was Under the Sea).

Thank you forever and ever.




The wall is done, our hearts are full, and our time in Haiti was more wonderful than we can ever type here.  We were healthy, safe, comfortable, and with our precious son everyday for 15 straight days.   He was sweet (most of the time) and we felt like we bonded with him right away.  The girls had a blast with Nana and Papa who did an amazing job of keeping them occupied for 2 weeks too.  We will never be able to fully thank you all for being a part of this process.  You are a blessing to us in so many ways.  Please pray for quick turn around...that is a big prayer request right now.  A lot of thing need to happen before he comes home and we are hopeful that it will be sooner rather than later, but only God knows...trying to trust Him and His timing.  The link below shows our next steps and where we are in the whole process....the link is also available at the top of our blog in the adoption section.  Thank you again prayer warriors and friends and family.  We love you all!
