We headed to Memphis for a "girls road trip" to see the Broadway show "WICKED". Some of the girls decorated wallets or t-shirts for the trip. Carly decorated an awesome wallet. She is such a creative girl! I loved spending my time taking her to the show. The show was incredible, the girls were precious and time with my Carly girl was the BEST.
The Little "G' girls (as they called themsleves) made a sculpture of Paris while I was helping older sister with her schoolwork. As told my Grace & Bella- The colorful Eifel Tower in the background, the long, thin road with a car headed to the house at the end of the road. The grass is blowing in the wind. Isabella made the grass, the skinny piece of road, the Eifel tower and the "G" for the ("G" girls). Grace made the colorful car, the house and the 2 fat pieces of road. So creative....This all started out by making a heart and it got turned upside down and Bella said it looked like the Eifel Tower in Paris. What great imaginations & creativity. I love when Isabella is "learning" and we aren't even doing school. I LOVE HOMESHOOLING.
Isabella has started having sleepovers! Since she has turned 6 years old she is quite social bug. Her first sleepover was at her friend, Grace's house. Bella had a blast. Here is a picture of Grace & B watching scoobydoo at our house (her then 3rd sleepover). I guess watching TV is much more fun in a box! Notice how tired they look.... Those 2 have so much energy together-its amazing!
Well here I go again. I am going to try and start updating my blog more regularly. I miss scrapbooking so very much and truly have a passion for documenting our lives...So in an attempt to do that without scrapbooking-here I go.....
So much has happend in the past year and a half (wow, has it really been that long since I updated the blog !?!?!). We have recently moved-we built a house-I will post pictures later. We are really enjoying our new home and feel so blessed that Gods plan is ALWAYS the best plan. Even when we aren't sure what the next step is going to be, we KNOW that God knows, and He is able to do immeasureably more than we could ever imagine. (Ephesians 3:20)
I am sure the next few posts are going to be totally out of order as I put some of my favorite pictures and memories if the past year.
Isabella gave her hair for "locks of love". She gave 11". We had just had 2" cut off the week before for our trip to St. Louis for her adoption reunion. She had a lot of hair. I loved her hair but it was so hard to take care of. It was always getting tangled. Now it is so east to care for and so very cute. She loves it!
