I have done a pretty pathetic job of keeping up on our family blog.  So much has been happening these past few months!  I'll try to recap quickly for those who are interested....though I can't include our daughter, Jaibrian, in any of the photos until she's officially adopted...and that's really cruddy. She's in a lot of our photos, of course, as she's such a huge part of our family.  I hope to do a year in review photo montage once she's adopted though, so watch for that! :o)

Now for the update, here we go...

Our Homeschool Bible Study Group held a cute Christian Halloween Pumpkin Carving party that used a carved pumpkin and poem to illustrate God's Love.

Our Homeschooling Group went on a Field trip to the Parade Company in Detroit just before the great big Thanksgiving Day Parade.

 I finally figured out how to serve 3 different PB&J sandwiches to our crew and their friends without having to describe the different sandwiches in detail.  ie: just peanut butter is a whole sandwich, uncut.  just jelly is cut into rectangles. Regular Peanut Butter and Jelly is cut into triangles.

Brian and I took Brise and his friend, Alex, to see the Video Games Live symphony.  It was amazing!

Daxx lost his 2 front teeth...

 ...and learned to climb the walls.

Daxx and Kole celebrated their 7th birthday with their first "real" party. 
They chose a bowling alley to hold their awesome party.

Brian turned 39...but I can't show you pictures of that because Jaibrian is in all the pictures...
And we got a little puppy named Macy!  She's a Brittany Spaniel / Golden Retriever mix.

That's all for now! :o)

Great PB&J idea.
If that door climbing child isn’t in gymnastics...he should be! ; )
I can’t wait to see Jaibrian’s pictures.
