Prayers please

I know I haven't posted about the girls in a few days but there isn't much to post. We get up everyday eat breakfast, play, eat lunch, play, take a nap, get up eat a snack, play, play, play, eat supper, take a bath, play and go to bed. lol that is our typical day. We are doing some testing with them for school right now, but other than that everyday is the same. But we are happy and healthy and so the same ole same ole is good for me ;)

There are several people in my world right now that need lots of prayers. Please pray for the Warner family their blog is here. They are in EE right now and have been stuck there for 10 days, because the Dr. saw a spot on Joshua's x-ray it could be pneumonia or it could be TB. Specific prayer request please pray that tomorrow when they go back to the Dr. and have his x-ray done it will be completely clear and they are cleared to come home where he can get better medical care. Being over there longer than expected has taken a toll on their finances so please say lots of prayers for this family.

My friend Sarah is adopting from the same orphanage that the girls were in. Her beautiful little girl has already had one heart surgery is in need of another one. Right now there are 2 problems. One is that her current condition is not listed on the list of Special Needs so no Americans can adopt her so please pray that her condition will be added to the list and before she has to have the 2nd surgery because if she has the second surgery she will be ineligible all together for adoption from outsiders. You can read their story here

Last but not least My friend Linny's daughters boyfriend was in a motorcycle accident last Sunday on his way to pick up his girlfriend (Linny's daughter) right now he is in a medical induced coma and on a ventilator. I don't want to misquote anything so go over to her blog here and read Karl's story and the specific prayer requests.

Thank you all so much!!!

First trip to the zoo

We took the family to the zoo today. We had a blast. The girls actually loved it. We were a little worried because they are just now getting used to different animals. We have actually ventured out to my moms where my boxer is at and they don't freak out with her anymore, and they are getting better with cats too. They really enjoyed seeing all the animals, they didn't care for the snakes. We were able to do the petting zoo and they got to pet a goat, a camel, and a donkey. First trip to the zoo a success :) Here are some pics from our day
The kiddos looking through the tube at the lemars (Ellee is in there she is behind Bailey's head)

Looking at the fish

Ok this photo is funny only because they were looking for the lizard thingy and they couldn't find it and Bailey found it, it was hanging from the top of the cage and so it scared her and in return she scared Ellee, but they both recovered and we moved on.

Mommy do you see this?

4th of July 2011

This was the girls first 4th of July at home!!! Our town does a big fireworks show on the 3rd every year so we went there last night and the girls loved the fireworks. Johannah kinda whimpered the first couple of booms but after that she was oohing and awing and they were both so excited. Today we had a small family cookout. The girls love to eat so we don't have any problems with what they eat :) After we finished eating we was going to went down to the lake, and we were going to get out and walk along the beach but there were tons of people so we decided not too, we decided to take a drive instead and see some of the countryside. We took today as a day to be thankful for all our blessings. A year ago we were preparing for our two beautiful little girls to come home, and my dad was in the hospital not doing good, and even though this year my dad is not with us I still know where he is and I am so thankful for salvation and life after death. And this year we have 2 beautiful little girls who can brighten up any room and put a smile on anyone's face!

I pray that each of you had a wonderful 4th of July! Remember to thank God for our salvation and thank the men and women who give up their lives so that we may have so many freedoms! Pray for the families who's loved one was not at the dinner table this year because they are serving a branch of the military and pray for those families who's loved one will never come home because they gave up their life for our freedom!

This is how you eat deviled eggs

and this is how you eat a hot dog
