We Are So Thankful For Hope

Hope helping unload pumpkins or our church pumpkin patch.

Our camera was broken and I kept meaning to download some of the girls Thanksgiving photos which never here is my Thanksgiving post minus the pictures... so I am posting just a couple of random Hope photos...
We are so blessed as a family. One certain little brown eyed girl makes us thankful every day for Chinese Children Adoption International our agency and the wonderful work they have done over the years to bring children and their families together. Several of our family members donated money to send to Hope's orphanage in China. The place where Hope spent the first three years of her life will always be close in our thoughts and prayers especially this time of year.
Hope is a sweet precious little girl who has progressed so very much in the past couple of years. We are thankful that her transition into our family has been easy and wonderful. Our whole family has welcomed her with open arms and she loves them all. We are so thankful to have such a warm welcoming family.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Halloween 2009 - The Cutest Little Ladybug In Texas

She really was the "Cutest Little Ladybug In Texas" this halloween...I'm sure there may be other moms who would disagree with me...
Hope had great fun this year. She loved getting dressed up and instead of saying "Trick or Treat" She insisted on saying "Thank you for some candy please" Isn't that just too cute!
Ronnie bought her this halloween costume at Cracker Barrel. Funny, last year's costume was also from Cracker Barrel, we may just make that a tradition.

These pictures were taken at Bethany's on Halloween. The big question now is can I stand it until all that CANDY is gone? I think the best way to handle it is just let her go for it and eat as much as she wants until it is gone...I do try to limit it close to meal time. The sooner it is gone ...the better. Probably most parents feel the same way!
Check out the Wolfhill Site for other Halloween pictures we had a family party. Hot dogs and a hayride combined with smores and lots of candy was a recipe for fun!
