Forever Family Day

Wow has it really been three years since that little tiny 16pd baby was placed in my arms? You rememer, the one who didn't cry and moved all the time. I am amazed at how fast the time has passed and how she has grown and changed and how our lives have changed. Kaleigh has a sweet happy personality the majority of the time and everyone falls in love with her and her zest for life. I can't wait to see what the next 3 years bring for her. Excuse the picture of her looking like her parents don't keep her clean it was in the 70's and she played outside most of the day and looked like it too.

And she turns 4!!!

Ok so I have to admit it is kinda sad that my baby girl is already 4 years old. She is getting so big and forming such a personality of her own. I am so proud of her. These pictures are all of her at home celebration which was just us and included a trip to McDonalds for a happy meal and playtime. She loved opening her presents and kept asking for more but those are saved for her party on Saturday. As you can see she never stays clean at school!


These are just some misc pictures from the month. Love the one of the girls laying on the unmade bed sleeping and facing each other and love the pigtail pictures of both (wish Kaleigh had a clean nose and face) and then the one of Kaleigh with her papaw's hat on.

Chinese New Year

We attended the local FCC's Chinese New Year celebration tonight and the girls had a blast! They both actualy were brave enough to give their gift to the dragon. Kaleigh even got brave enough to touch it. Courtney looks so beautiful in her white dress and she was so proud of herself. She has grown and changed so much since last year. It is hard to believe that she had only been with us for 16 months. Kaleigh loved the dancers and was very disappointed when we left before they were finished. She loves that type of thing she didn't want to leave the cheerleading competitions we went to back in Dec. I am so very proud of my girls. Unfortunately didn't get any great pictures of them because they were too focused on playing.

Just goofing around

These picutres were taken one night just goofing off with the girls. They love to see the pictures after you take them so they would strike a pose and then come back to see how it looked. You can tell by their faces that they were having a blast.

New Year's in Gatlinburg

Well we really didn't take very many pictures while we were there. We went with a huge group of people (22 total plus 2 dogs) and I think the thoughts of taking pictures just got lost in the shuffle. Plus the girls spent a lot of time playing with the other kids that were there. The view is from the deck of the cabin which was 2 miles up a narrow curvy mountain road.
