Not Enough Time to be Sad

Life goes on and we have sweeties here that need loving
Snack at Grams and Pops' house, chocolate and milk

Lily left her snowsuit behind for Piper and she didn't want to take it off

He really did love being a big brother for a few days.

Pops enjoyed having someone to snuggle too but he was still to heavy for him to carry (much anyway)

They want to know when we're getting another baby. Sami wants a girl next time

Ella is getting so old on her new scooter

Sami got one too, what was Santa thinking?

Another thing about not knowing how long a baby will stay
is not knowing how many supplies to get.
I guess we'll just be that much more prepared for next time.

Our Princess Star

Talking to Aunt Nenni

What are your numbers? I need to give you a shot..Measuring his insulin.

Sami's turn to talk to Aunt Nenni

Feeding the baby

She is such a good helper. We are so lucky!

Next post more on our Texans!

Saying Good Bye Part Two

First I have to say I had pictures from a going away party that Thomas and Natalie gave to Jennifer the night before she left but I've been having some computer problems and they are stuck on the computer that's in the shop. You'll just have to believe me that allot of people are going to miss them.

He loves that cape that Nenni made for him and Lily loves her Texas hat

I let Jack eat his oatmeal out of my coffee cup on the couch
He likes his Texas hat too

I'm so going to miss waking up at 6:30am to the sound of her little voice singing Rock a Bye Baby to her baby doll.

I was there to witness her birth and have been so lucky to be able to spend these last 2 and a half years so close to her.

These two will always have a special bond. It hurts me to know what they will be missing in each others lives but we all move on.
I know they will always keep that bond no matter how far apart in miles

The oldest cousins

She doesn't remember a time without her Johnny
Add a hug from Nathan to lighten the mood. They have been part of our every day lives for 8 months and left themselves a couple of days later 

Just because we're not related doesn't mean we won't always be family

She always wants to hold Lily, another last i think

This was her first holding Lily. Cousin Love

He loved Lily too, maybe she reminded him of his own sister or maybe he just liked her toys

They had way too much stuff to take with them but these space bags were amazing!

a second after I took this picture Jack had big crocodile tears running down his face and I was trying so hard not to let them see me sad.
On The Road. See you later alligator

Saying Good Bye Part One

I'm finally up to braving all the pictures we took the last week Jennifer and the kids were here. They made a definite impact on a lot of people and will be greatly missed. We also know how lucky we were and still are to be the close family that we have become.
Jenifer wanted to do something special for Ella and Sami. Ella and Jennifer are so much alike such big hearts. We all had Ella for four years before the other kids came in quick succession and she holds a big part of all our hearts including all the little kids, everyone one that meets her loves her. She was a bit displaced when Jack took over 'her' room in our house but she was happy to do it.

So Jennifer aka Aunt Nenni (named by Ella when she was learning to talk and couldn't pronounce a 'J')
 made the girls their favorite things; pink steak and Mac and Cheese out of the box.

They even all slept in Nenni's room

They helped her clean out the craft drawer

a sleepover isn't a sleepover without popcorn

Bad thing, worse thing, Ella was starting to get sick and was unable to eat

So along with her Mito cocktail she was on an antibiotic and Ibuprofen

The good thing in it was she had to stay home the week from school so we got to spend our days with her

Jack was always wanting to come across the street with me to get the other kids ready for school and he did occasionally but the last week he came with me every morning

He even went to the school with me when I did "Book Club" with the boys

I let them spend a lot of time sitting on the couch with electronics, not my usual MO but

As it turned out it was our last week for two of our Foster Sweeties
More couch potato time

They'll always color.

Same story different house

Then We Went to Chuck E  Cheese

We didn't even realize this would be this little guys first visit to Chuck E Cheese. What fun to see his excitement

This is a big deal for Ella. She's come so far with her muscle strength

I haven't been able to get her braids to looks as good as Nenni did

He enjoyed his first visit so much we paid for him to have a visit there with his parents this week. They stayed on the big kids side though watchin his parents play instead of the other way around.

She was feeling much better by now but it was the end of the week so we kept her out of school. We did do school work though

chomping the tickets

Then Charlie and Michele came by

to say Good Bye

Hot Potato!

Lily's favorite position

Best friends, I hope they never loose this

Until we see you again
