Home away from Home

Lately we have been spending alot of time in Lowe's picking up paint and other supplies for the house. After a few days the guys working in the paint dept knew Makenna by name and would laugh when she would say are you shaking up the paint. When we were leaving this week to run errands and we past Lowe's she started crying and saying I want to go to my Lowe's. I took the picture of her in Lowe's a few weeks ago because she found my camera and was playing with it. We are still trying to get settled in this house and I hope to be posting again soon.

On my mind lately

In the last few weeks we have had alot people comments about adoption and Makenna. Most of the time the questions are very innocent and with good intentions sometimes families are just interested due to they would like more info for an adoption of their own. Dana has a hard time when people just stare at us and have strange looks on their faces. We really get stared at when we go out as a family with the two older kids. We get question like are the two older ones adopted also or are they from a previous marriage. I just say that God called us to China for our precious daughter and his plan was perect. When I look at my children they look the same to me and I love them more than words can say. Just this morning Makenna woke up and asked where Josh and Kayla was like every morning I said their at school she just smile and said I love my Josh and Kayla. Now that's all I need to hear. God is Good!!!

Swine flu

Yes Josh and Kayla have swine flu... Kayla has had a fever since Saturday and Josh started with a fever and headache on Sunday. On Monday they both stayed in bed all day and didn't eat at all. Tuesday I called the doctor and they said that it sounded like the flu and I could just treat it at home or bring them in for a test. Doctors are not treating this flu with any medication and it just has to run it's course. Today has been the first day with no fever. There school has been saying all week that they are going to close down for a week since they have so many kids with the flu I hope this is true since I don't want to send them back and let them get it again. We had our closing on our new house on Tuesday afternoon and started painting on Wednesday we have alot of work to do and with the kids being sick we have not been getting alot done yet. We have to have the entire upstairs painted before Tuesday when they come to replace the carpet. I hope to remember the camera tomorrow to take pictures of the house. I can't believe how nasty it is I guess that's what happens when people don't care anymore since they were losing it.

Play date with Caiya

The weather has been amazing the last few days so we decided since Makenna was feeling better to go to the park and play with Caiya. Makenna and Caiya really enjoyed the swings and slides. After the park we went to get ice cream Makenna had Cotton candy flavor and loved it. On the way home she fell asleep and ended up taking a three hour nap when we got home.
