Christmas 2011

I really wish I could post the picture of all the kids in front of the tree but since I can't post pictures of our newest addition and it never occurred to me to take one without her, you'll have to wait to see that one. So for now here's a few of our Christmas pics.

Isn't she cute!
Still my baby, just not the youngest anymore.

Buster was the funnest this Christmas. So full of wonder.

Sissy got a doll that plays the itsy bitsy spider when you push down on her stomach. She kept pushing it over and over laughing and bouncing up and down the whole time.

Bunny got a new scarf with peace signs all over it.

Duckie got a shirt ordered from another country. Although it was ordered in plenty of time it didn't get here before Christmas. So he got a box with a picture of the shirt taped in it.

Tator loves doing hair so she got a styling head. I hope this is something that will keep her busy for hours.

Buc opening some hunting thing. I'm not even going to pretend I know what it is.

Both big boys wanted amps for Christmas. As if it wasn't loud enough around here.

Bubbas opening his bow he had been talking about for months.

He also got a bag full of bird decoys. Just what every 6 year old boy wants. I thought this would be the best gift. He is always printing out or making targets to shot his bb gun at. I guess I was right, because we were still opening presents when he already had them in the Christmas tree and was looking for his nerf gun.

Christmas Surprises!


I've finally gotten a chance to sit down at the computer and tell you all where I have been for the last few weeks.
I have been rocking our new baby girl! Baby Coco joined our family a few days after Thanksgiving.
We feel so lucky and blessed to have her. We had heard BM to our two youngest was pregnant again and prayed and prayed about it. We were so unsure if this was the right time to add another child to our family. The agency had told us before they didn't know if they would place with us anymore because of our family size and Tators special needs. But we were so sure God had kept us in this for a reason.
Tator was doing so good we just weren't sure what to do. So we prayed and asked God to place this baby in the right home and do what was best for everyone. We had a meeting with our agency and told them what was going on with everyone at the time and how everyone felt about a new baby.
We put the whole situation in God's hands and I prepared my heart to be broken into a million pieces when it was decided that the baby would be placed somewhere else.
A few days after Thanksgiving we got the call that the baby had been born and they were going to place with us. Some where along the way someone was wrong and BM was farther along than everyone thought.
We are still so excited. Everyone has fallen totally head over heals in love with her. So I apologize for not blogging about this sooner, but most of my time right now is being spent bonding with our new baby girl.
