Christmas pictures X2

A few weeks ago I took Rachel to the mall & who was there? Santa Claus!!! It was Nov 6th.. santa was ready for pictures & there was no line... thats what I'm talking about!!! Well Rachel wasnt too thrilled with the big guy but of course I bought the picture anyway..she has that mean baby face like Juanita on desperate housewives has...

Then on Nov 17th I decided to bring Rachel for her christmas pics, well out of all the pics they took there wasnt one that was the least bit decent.. here we go with the juanita face again.... that Thursday we tried again & hot damn we got some good shots.. and here they are...

I figured another month she'll be on the go, just in time for christmas... christmas pics soo

A gift from my friend Kristi

here is the gift that my friend Kristi sent me for my birthday, its hanging proud in my dining room. She happens to think that I dont like it but its beautifully framed & has Rachel's name & the date of her christening. Ive gotten so many complimemts on it.. Its kinda strange to see me & sam hanging there.. other than our wedding pic all the other photos are of Rachel, other family & friends.. not many of us..
so thank you kristi...
Like ive said many many times before, this adoption process has brought many other things into my life other than Rachel.. the friends that ive made along the way.. Kristi is one of them, I would have never made it through the misery of the adoption process had it not been for her... so thank you!!!!! she is a lifelong friend thats for sure.. I just wish we lived closer, but we will see each other again real soon...

Prayers needed

Today I am asking for your prayers.... On the right side of my blog there are the faces of 2 little girls.. Bella & Abby.. These precious little angels have both been diagnosed with cancer. I cant even imagine what they are going through, in reading their stories I am amazed at the strength that these 2 families have....

please take a look & keep them in your prayers.... t
