Catching up

So turns out having two kiddos running around the house can keep a mama pretty busy!!  I was browsing through some blogs that I love to follow when it occurred to me that I haven't posted in forever! 

Ellie is doing really well.  Every day brings new things to learn and love about her and she is bonding really well with all of us.  She's super adventurous and keeps up with her big brother just fine :)  They have started playing together more and more and Max is super patient explaining to her how to "play pretend".  Ellie's not big on sitting in one place for more than a second or two so seeing the two of them sitting playing "store" with the toy cash register last night for 15 minutes was a sweet moment!

Here's our recent family fun in pictures!

 A fun family day at the Children's Museum in Normal, IL

School close shopping!  My word, this little man is growing up WAY too fast!!

Ellie is a CRAZY sleeper!  She ends up everywhere except the place she started in the night before :)

Ellie's first go kart ride!  Despite the initial look of terror on the first lap, she LOVED it! 

 Max is so big, he got to drive his own go kart!  Isn't he just the cutest thing!

 Bowling for the first time!!

Picture from our first Sunday back at church!  It was SO great to worship with our church family holding onto my baby girl!

Having fun with the cousins!  E's dress is just a tad too big :)

Bumming around Home Depot

Wow! I love your blog! Your children are just gorgeous. We have just started the process of adopting a child in Thailand, and we are so excited. We have instructed a Thailand lawyer to help us. Thank you for taking the time to write your blog.
