Our home has been richly blessed!
Everyday I am amazed at God's faithfulness and unconditional love for us!
We have so much for which to be thankful!
The Lord has blessed us IMMEASURABLY with Hannah Grace! She is such a joy and delight!
I think she summed it up perfectly in her prayer at Thanksgiving dinner,
"Thank you God for food...
and my church.
Thank You, Lord, for providing for our needs and even some of our "wants."
Thank you for YOU!!! For your incredible FAITHFULNESS and AMAZING LOVE!
Thank you for our family. For those who are related to us and those who are so supportive and loving that we adopt them as family (because "friend" is just not a good enough word for them)!
And thank you so much for our church! Our church truly demonstrates the character of Christ! Every time we walk in the doors, we feel the love of Christ!
We are blessed to be a part of Community Baptist!

These are two recliners that we bought about two years ago.
We are finally putting them to use.
Steph and Hannah Grace. The rocking chairs were gifts for Nana and PaPa.
ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!
Walking into the room. I am so excited that this room is finally finished!!!
Walking down the steps to the Bama room. None of this
was finished when we moved into the house.

I have a dear friend in China that desperately needs our prayers!!
Her name is Sandi Sheldon.
She and her husband traveled to China to adopt their daughter Hannah.
Dennis has suffered with Diabetes for quite a while.
After arriving to China, his blood sugars elevated significantly. They could not control his sugar. He went into a diabetic coma and passed away in China.
Sandi and Hannah are attempting to come home. However, since Dennis passed away this changes all the documents needed to get Hannah into the U.S.
Sandi has spoken with her Congressman and other Representatives.
This is the first time this sort of thing has happened.
Please pray that the paperwork is completed quickly.
Please pray for Sandi to have strength, wisdom, PEACE, and comfort during this traumatic time.
Please pray that Hannah and Sandi can come home soon!

The password is: Hannah

HG did not know what to expect.
But she caught on quickly!
This girl loves the candy!

I was amazed at how HG loved getting messy!
We were all (including Maggie Mae and Allie Bug) covered in pumpkin before it was over!!!
I know this will be a great tradition in our home for many years!
A child can add so much JOY to your life!
I am richly blessed!!!!

A cute ladybug?
A puppy dog?
Yes, this is what my child chose to be.
I begged (pleaded repeatedly) for her to be a princess or Dora.
But, her mind was set on not just an elephant, but "Roll Tide Elephant."
She is definitely Greg's daughter!!!!
