Fallen Soldier

Our whole County came out to show our respect and gratitude I have been talking to the girls about how our freedom isn't free that our soldiers are keeping us safe. I am so proud of the men and women who are serving our country. Brad served in the Army the girls referr to all our military as Heros.

Simplifying your life Mommy

Okay I was eaves dropping as the girls were brushing their teeth, one night this week. We have been upset because we can never find the cap for our (Brad's and my) tooth paste. Every lid is missing and has been for the past 4-6 months it could have started earlier and we just dismissed it.
So the conversation went like this....
Cordie: WHERE IS THE LID FOR THE TOOTHPASTE!!!!!!! What did you do with it this time???
Katie: ........... "snickering"
C: Serious what did you do with the lid?
K:..... "more snickering" I am simplifying Mama's and Daddy's life.
C:What are you talking about!
K: It's one less thing they have to do now! "more snickers that turned into full laughter"

I truely am one Blessed Mommy Thank you God for my wonderful children. With one sweet daughter who wants to make my life easier.

Carlow's Gotcha Day

One year ago we were up early and waiting to go to the civil center in Guanzhou. All of us were unsure what to expect. Cordie and Katie were pacing the hotel each kept saying how scared their baby brother might be this morning as his life was being rearranged. As for Brad and I we were worried about how he was going to adjust to his new family. Katie wanted to hug and kiss him and Cordie wanted to make him feel safe, what woderful big sisters he had waiting for him. Check out our pics from Gotcha Day and some more recent ones. God Bless you all, Bekah one blessed Mommy

Sick and don't feel good

Well we all have a nasty cold and sore throat. It's never good when we are all sick including Mama. And Cordie gets really cranky (even more so when not feeling great) and she decided to take her own hair down tonight and when it didn't come out easy she kept pulling until the band snapped. And did I mention how the band was so tangled in her hair I thought I was going to have to cut her hair up to her shoulders?
Well with a lot of coaxing and some silk conditioning oil I got the band out after brushing her hair I found a chunk missing and knew I had to cut her hair about 2.5 inches. She was crying and sobbing the entire time. Katie came in and held her hand and said please don't cry I will make it fair Mama will cut my hair and it will be fair.
I thought I was going to cry. That was so thoughtful of Katie after all the hair cutting was done Cordie ran to the mirror with Katie and made sure they were the same LOL. Katie was smiling and hugged Cordie telling her that she loved her. Cordie held Katie and whispered in her ear. I don't know for sure but I think she was telling her how much she loved her too and thanking her for the love sacrifice she made for her sister.

Carlow has a Gotcha Day coming up I can not believe he has been home for one yr as of Oct. 8.
We are praying to be well by then and hoping to go to the Farm in Bremen with our Home Schooling Group.
One more thing I have a friend who is adopting a 9 yr old from Russia. Please read about her
She has several fund raisers going I love the blog creations that her friend is doign to help her. Check it out.
