Welcome to our corner of the web! Here you will learn about our family and our journey of a family member adoption. In July of 2010, after 9 years of trying to add to our family and 5 years after we started our adoption journey, we welcomed baby Emily Rose. Emily's birth mom is Sharon's adopted sister. We look forward to someday adopting more children but for now, we are enjoying our time together as a family of 4!

An Early Father's Day Celebration



O.k. so tomorrow is actually Father's Day. But, Jacob has some testing he has to get done on Monday. Lucky for him (dripping sarcasm) those tests have to be done fasting for 24 hours.

For Father's Day I wanted to make Jacob a special dinner of his choosing, and a cake. Since he can't eat anything tomorrow, we opted to celebrate Father's Day a day early.

I asked him what he wanted for dinner. He selected Roast, Mashed Potatoes and Veggies. (Just because he wants to make BBQ Beef sandwiches for dinner on Monday with the leftover roast. lol) I also asked him what kind of cake he wanted. He said Chocolate, and anything as long as it was football themed.

Jacob wanted to go to the pool today, so he took Tammy while I stayed home and attempted a cake. I wanted to do a field with the Seattle Seahawks logo on it. (they're his favorite team). But I hated the way the logo came out. So instead I took the leftover cake batter, baked it and made a football. Sure, a pitiful football, but a football.

When they got back from the pool Jacob took a very long nap while Tammy made him a card for Father's Day. The only thing I helped her with was that she wanted the diamond pattern to be white and when she used the white ink it looked green. So I suggested embossing it with white embossing powder. The rest was all her. It turned out so great! Jacob loved it!

We ate dinner and watched a movie (Jacob chose Armageddon) and then had cake. It was a great day!

This is the card Tammy made
Dinner
My attempt at a cake. I haven't made one in so long, and I really need to work on my piping, but it's not too bad I guess.

Happy Father's Day Honey!
