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!

Winter Wonderland!

I just had to post pictures of our snow fall! Last year when we were in New Mexico (very southern New Mexico, almost to the Texas border) we were praying for snow. Somehow it just doesn't feel like Christmas to me without snow. The most we ever got was a light (and I do mean light) dusting of snow the day after Christmas. It really looked like someone had sprinkled powdered sugar on our lawn.
This is the sadness that was our snowfall last year when we lived in New Mexico. (Incidentally, some of my friends who live there tell me that this year they have already gotten 7 inches in some areas.

This is our snow fall today. Note that it's still snowing. So ya, hubby was out later shoveling again. ;o) We really need to get a snowblower or something. Note the fire hydrant on the corner is over halfway covered. Love it!! It's crazy, but I love it! It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!
