Happy Five Months Family!!!

Five months ago we walked into the civil affairs office to hold our new babies for the very first time. We had no idea what life was going to be like for us or them. It was scary, sad, exciting, extremely painful, amazing....all at once. Today it seems as though they have been with us their entire lives (except the whole English thing). We are finally comfortable as a family of seven. The van fits us all. Nice restaurants don't have enough space for us EVER(: We don't even try!!! One is out of diapers. Can someone praise the Lord on that one. Only two left to potty train. Hey, I'm three for five that's pretty good in softball and potty training. Just wanted to share a few several pics of life at biggerdirt. And no they usually don't have clothes on for those of you that have asked or commented. It's less laundry and it's 100 degrees.

Their first family reunion and boat ride.

He caught his first fish and it IS RIGHT THERE IN THAT BUCKET!!!

mostly naked and is great!

This beautiful girl caught the most fish at the family reunion. For those of you who don't know her well, she is NOT a fishing kinda girl. Today, she proved us wrong and in a skirt!
Oh my heart!! I sure love these two girls. Sharing kisses. I will treasure these days forever!
She demanded that he hold her hand and well, HE LISTENS TO HER!!!

There are no words...
This little baby was added to our family too(:


  1. Can't believe it's five months already! Some days it seems the two new babies have been here forever (except that English thing). Somewhere along the way everyone started getting along and fitting together like a family does, and they actually love each other now!! I don't like to miss a day seeing everyone!! Grandma loves all five of my grandbabies so so much (and their parents too)!!

    1. awwwweee I love you too Mom!!! Thank you for loving all of us.

  2. I love to see how your 2 newest treasures are blossoming. You can see it in their face and their demeanor in the pictures. They know they are finally HOME!!
