Our little girl is 2....

...she can't believe it either!
Since Thanksgiving day this year is her actual birthday, we decided to celebrate on a different day. We just had a very small family party and it was perfect! The kids had a great time, and I think us adults had an equally great time sitting around the fire pit! HERE are a few pics from the party!

As much as I wish her birthday wasn't around a holiday, of all the holidays to be near(and sometimes on) Thanksgiving is perfect! We have SO much to be thankful for when it comes to her! I put up a little collage of pictures of her from the past 2 years for her little party and as I was doing that I came across pictures of her when she was in the NICU. I can't believe it was 2 years ago that our little peanut decided to come into this world 10 weeks early weighing a hefty 3 lbs 14 oz. Look at her now! =) thankful!!

"Opening Doors..."

So we've been praying about adopting every day, and when we pray at night with the girls, I've been praying that the Lord open doors if it's His will. So tonight when I went to pray with Taylor I asked if she had any special prayer requests. She said she was thankful for Great Grandmother, her daddy and her mommy and she wanted to pray about adopting a baby boy and opening doors. So I told her to go ahead and pray. And this is how it went...."Thank you for great grandmother, and for my daddy and mommy. I pray about adopting a baby boy and will You please open the door nicely and not squish anybody's fingers..." =) priceless.....haha

My Dad's the Best!!

So I probably shouldn't be posting pics until my projects are completed, but I was just too excited to wait!! So Danny was out of town all week, and this was one of his surprises I wanted to do for him while he was gone! He's really been wanting a bedframe...but as we all know they cost money! So that was on the bottom of my list of things to buy for the house. But, I got the idea, which I know its already been done before, but we had an extra door from our laundry room that we weren't using and I wanted to turn it into a head board. Since my handy-dandy dad has gotten back into his wood working again, he helped turn my door into the headboard of my dreams!! Instead of buying the Hudson Collection bedframe from Pottery Barn that WAS my dream bedframe for $2,895 plus $150 for shipping, I took a free door + $35 worth of wood and $7 of spray paint to make my dream bed! Thanks dad for all your help! (and yes I know the picture above our bed is offcentered. it will be fixed! =) )
