Time on the farm...

We made one last trip down to South Georgia to see family and friends before Baby Bowen is born.
We had a wonderful trip and enjoyed our time on the farm.
These are just a few of my favorite pictures!
This was my grandmother's wagon that she used to haul wood to her house in the winter.

Baby Shower in Georgia

We had a great time visiting family and friends in Georgia. We are so blessed to have received so many wonderful gifts for Bowen!

Costume Party at Dance Class

The girl's dance class had a costume party yesterday! All the girls looked so cute dancing in costumes. Hope you enjoy the pictures of my two dancers!
Mary Elizabeth went as a 50's girl.

Miss attitude

Check out this make-up!!

Harper was my little pumpkin.

This child is ALWAYS smiling!

Check out her make-up!

Harrison was upset because he could not wear a costume to Taekwondo, so I painted a bat on his face. Then his instructor called him Super Harrison all class, so that made his day!

Enjoying some cool weather

We actually had to get out our coats a few days ago!!! We love the fall, but NOT cold weather.
Here are a few pictures of some fall fun!
I was so excited when I put on my coat and could not button it!! I asked Jason to take this picture so I could always remember not being able to button it! However, the kids thought that Bowen would get cold.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

3rd Trimester here we come...

Here is a look at how fast Bowen has been growing these last 5 weeks.

As my 2nd trimester comes to an end, I have no complaints! Everything about this pregnancy has been wonderful. My doctor asked me if being pregnant was everything I thought it would be and of course I said it is better! I really had no idea what to expect or how my body would handle carrying a child, but I must say that I wake up everyday praising God for his marvelous work! What a blessing to be able to experience the adoption process (3 times and hopefully again in the future!) and pregnancy (hopefully again as well!). They are completely different, but both so wonderful! I love seeing how excited the kids get when they hear Bowen's heartbeat, and how they love to tell everyone about their baby brother. Our family is a miracle and only God could have placed these 4 children into our family!
At my doctor's appointment today, everything was good. I gained 5 more pounds, so that makes my total weight gain 18 pounds!!

Visiting Mimi and PaPa

We had the chance to take a short trip to the North Georgia Mountains to visit Jason's Mom and Step dad. Last weekend was the Georgia Marble Festival, so we got to enjoy a full weekend of fun. Jason walked in the Walk-a-thon with his Mom, we watch a great parade and got lots of candy, went to the festival and ate great food, the kids played games and we even brought home a new pet (that I won!). Hope you enjoy the pictures.

My little cuties...

Just some pictures of my little cuties!!

Just love this beautiful hair!
Just can't get enough of these cute dimples!
My handsome adventurous boy!

People ask all the time if Harrison and Mary Elizabeth are twins. Even though they are not biologically, they are very much so emotionally! They have been together since they were 6 months old, and it is amazing the way that they have bonded to each other. They prefer to never be separated, do so many things the same, play mostly with each other (except they let Harper in on the fun!), they do not fight with each other, and they will tell you that they are twins if you ask them! I even think they look alike!!

I am so blessed to be the Mommy of these 3 little cuties!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
