It's been a Wild Spring

Wel, we have had a time this spring. We had baby kittens but they both died. We had 3 baby goats that are really cute but I haven't slowed down to take pics of them, we have new baby chicks. I have had lots of spiritual and philosophical experiences this season but since I BROKE MY ARM and typing with one hand takes SO LONG, I will keep it all to myself! I do hope you all enjoy the pics and the very short explanations! Forgive any typos please. I won't be correcting them until I get my cast off. The important thing is that our family has enjoyed a richness of life this spring season and we give all the thanks and glory to our Lord!

Our lovely little hen went next door, to my parent's house, and hatched out 13 baby chicks under Mom's rosemary bush! You should see her trying to keep up with them all in the barnyard!

Fish Fry Anyone?

After a big night of fishin', Luke didn't even make it to his bed! He just walked right in and crashed on the closest chair he could find!

Cute Kids

Hi all! Let me give you just a little info on what going on with us and then we'll get to the good stuff.......PICTURES!!!!!!!!!

Laura's 12 month post placement visit was done today! 12 months!!! Our first Gotcha Day celebration will be February 17. I can't believe it's already been a year.

Laura's surgery to repair her lip will be next week February 5. Monday we were informed by Shriner's Hospital that they were closing the Galveston Hospital and she would no longer be their patient.......PANIC CITY!!!! But, we prayed because we believed that God gave her to us and that he would provide her care. Tuesday they called and said that they would do the surgery at another hospital but didn't know where and when. Some relief and more prayer. Friday the called and told us that her surgery would be performed at the Houston hospital on the regularly scheduled day. Doesn't God know how to test our faith? Nothing has changed except for a few days of having to believe His promises!

Lela is engaged and will be married March 14 at our house. She and her fiance are very much in love and we are very proud to have him as a son-in-law. He has a 21 month old daughter that we are crazy about. So, I will also become a grandmother on March 14. I wonder if she'll call Laura......Aunt Laura?

Basketball is in full swing, rodeo season is starting, garden is getting planted, life is full and busy and fun!
