Our Turkey Turkey was a Blast!

I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was as blessed as ours was. We had two! Hope had so much fun..I gotta post the pics of our sweet girl, who is just growing like a weed! As we leave November and enter into the month of December, we can only just be left in disbelief that it was a year ago that we had received the phone call on a little girl in Russia who was nearing a year and needing a family! Our little Hope Isabel! No name, no photo, no info...just waiting on God's plans for her...God's plan for us and our family. To be given such a gift of love, and innocence..she is just a joy to us and our boys. She loves animals, and now her dolls, her hair and her shoes...she loves affection..and she is sooo attached to all just feels so natural with my daughter. Hope just did a potty yesterday on thanksgiving evening..she was a little confused but thrilled with our claps and cheers..lets see how she does today. I haven't been pushing it, but she keeps making these grimaces when she gets wet or wants nothing to do with wearing a diaper, so I figure it only makes sense to try and rid of it. Hope will turn two in January (God willing), and I can't believe she's only two! She is a five year old in a toddler's body. Her maturity is so amazing! She tries to feed her baby cousin, and pick him up..she tries to feed the kitty outside and gives her what a child! Lord you are too good to us, this child is a dream! Everything she wears she is just stunning..hehe (parent's brag). She is always defending her bros too...only she can get mad at them not us!

I can't remember if I had posted this or not-but Hope dislocated her arm a few weeks ago..while we were in a dept. store;( we all freaked out by the way she was crying..we rushed her to the E.R. and they had to snap her arm back in place! Yeeoowch!I think we screamed louder than was quite an experience...its hard to keep Hope sitting in one place-she's very active and curious, and she can now open any door in the house (except the ones with locks)..she also is determined and will not give up until she gets what she wants! my kind of husband says-she's just like her mother!! HEHE.

Anyway, I gotta post more pics!!

Oh so-November is here....huh?

Wow! Is this year going fast....yes we are having fun, but we are soooo busy, and busy and busy. Why do we get this way? Why do we do this to ourselves? I feel so guilty taking on projects when I can't even get the house clean. I swear I will not hire someone to clean until I am working...but I better clean too...sooon!

I will need to take a lot of pictures this Thanksgiving.

I am getting some shopping in for the cooler weather...its almost so confusing shopping for a girl and boys...I get dizzy, and actually cannot focus at but I am loving it;)

Hope is repeating everything like: "Peekaboo, Iseeyouuuu"
"hot" "stop" "ow" "MAAAAAAHHHHH" "DADA" "poopoo"
"Peepee" "ouuuahhhh"(Noah)

She likes to play with my hair with a comb (ouch) and she lieks to tickle feet.
She loves her tricycle, and loves to run around and play tag. She isn't fond of staying in the strollerrrr arghhhh. She likes getting dressed up and now let's me do her hair. She walks around and never leaves without her purse;)

I can go on forever about her..but I'll just get the pictures and outfits togther for our baby girl and baby boys;) I am so proud of them, all of them-they are darlings of our hearts, and they light up our days. At times I feel guilty for starting school and taking away from them...but eventually it will be only to better them. I want Hope in ballet and gymnastics, and the boys to continue pursuing sports and activities...and non of these are cheap anymore. God will provide anyhow.

He gave me an awesome family and love.
