Dumb Quesstion 1

Okay so over the years we have been asked numerous questions some viable most dumb. I don't want to sound arrogant or something but really do people think before asking or even listen when they asked a previous question that totally answered the other question (HUH?)..
For example.... We have the 3 girls, you ask how cute,....where are they from? (good question) Elaina is from Cambodia....Phoebe is from Uzbekistan....and Ava is from Vietnam.

Ohhh how cute the lady says.... then it comes ,hold on here it comes....

"were they sisters before you adopted them?" HUH? did you not just hear me?

Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Vietnam not even a possibility.
Oh wait I know .... Yes their Mother was a traveling saleswoman.....

End of Summer

well here we are at the end of summer. 3 of the kids start back to school next week and then the other 2 a week later. We have tried to enjoy this summer to the best of our ability....;)

Aaron will be home over Labor Day weekend. we are very excited to be having him home even for a few days. He comes in Sat. and leaves Tuesday. All the kids are anxious to see him. (we are too)

CrAzY LoVe Challenge

Linny over at A Place Called Simplicity is doing Crazy Love Challenge #5 and The Countless Conklins is getting involved. Thank you Linny for this opportunity.
Well, here we again. Our family is in the process of adopting our 10th, a little girl from the Philippines, Joy. Our family affectionately calls this "Operation Joy" as it is proving to be the most challenging of the adoptions thus far. In order to keep the process moving, we are raffling a Queen Size quilt that I made and had quilted. The proceeds from this will help our family bring hom Joy!

Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. If you would like to buy tickets or donate please e-mail me at The drawing will take place on Monday August 23. We will notify the winner at that time.

Thank you for your help with Operation JOY!!!
