Mia's 3 Year Forever Family Day

I cannot believe that three years ago we stood in the hotel conference room in Lanzhou China waiting to meet our little girl. I remember hearing them come off the elevator, and I was already in tears.
To hold my baby and smell her for the first time was AMAZING!!!!! Although she totally adored her daddy and only wanted him while we were in China, it all didn't matter. She was ours and my mama heart was full of love for our princess.
Mia is almost 20 I mean 5!!!!! The princess has requested a Frozen birthday party, and I am sure Miss Mia is bound to perform and sing all Frozen songs. She is very, very girly. Loves clothes, shoes, her nails painted, purses, her Bitty Baby Zoe. She is FULL of BIG Personality and keeps us laughing all the time.
Today she woke up to the whole house cheering Happy Gotcha Day. Her knights brothers were so happy to celebrate her. They adore their little Princess. She was all smiles and happiness. Daddy brought home donuts and a butterfly balloon this morning on his way home from the fire station.
It was a sweet morning celebrating our girl. We Love you more than words can express, and you have forever changed our hearts for the better.
Mia curled up on my lap a few weeks ago and said, "Mama I am so happy." I asked Why and she said, "Because you and daddy came to China to get me." UMM Yeah about ripped my heart out.
So thankful!!!! For the gift of Mia!!!!!!
Happy with her daddy

Love my baby girl!!!!!

Happy St. Patricks Day

I learned something new today. Crazy how that happens when you're homeschooling. St. Patricks day isn't about pots of gold at endings of rainbows. It's actually about an amazing man that was a Roman citizen living in Englandwho was stolen, and sold as a slave for six years by the Celtics and taken to Ireland. It was in Ireland that God gave him dreams of future events. Which all came to pass. he ended up in England reunited with his family after being sold into slavery for six years. Then God gave him another dream, and it was clear he was to go back to Ireland and share the Love of Jesus with the Irish people there. WOW!!!!! Loved this story we read today about Saint Patrick. The clover actually was used by Saint Patrick as a representation of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We read and the kids mommy was amazed of his life story. And then we crafted the typical rainbow. LOL
Ethan and Daddy are loving on Daddy's Grandpa today. He is handicap, and they are helping install a handicap bathtub. So glad Joe took our teenager to do this. Teaching our children to have servant hearts like Jesus is the heart of Christ. Christ was the ultimate servant.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!!!!!
You've gotta read this book
