Friday Funny!

One year ago today we adopted our beautiful daughter Maleia. We feel so blessed to be her family. It is a day to celebrate and the best way to celebrate is spending the night in the hospital, right?

 Wrong! Unfortunately Mia has RSV and has become very dehydrated which means she has to spend her special day and night in the hospital hooked up to an IV.

The good thing is we live in a country with wonderful medical facilities who are taking very good care of our sweet little girl. Seeing as it must be a medical kind of day I decided to leave you with this Friday Funny.

Enjoy and have a safe and wonderful New Year!

Friday Funny!

Christmas is just around the corner people. Literally folks, if you look at a calendar Christmas actually looks like it's around the corner. Anyway, I hope everyone is getting in the Christmas spirit. I am sooo ready for Christmas because that means soon I get to start taking all the decorations down and putting my house back together. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Christmas as much as the next person who doesn't like Christmas all that much, but after a while I feel like the house is trying to smother me Christmas cheer.

 There are two things that I love about Christmas though; the first things is spending all my money on items that my kids are so excited about for about a week and then I find broken on the floor under their bed the day after New Years. The second thing is taking down the Christmas while my family is still opening presents. Those two things just scream Christmas to me. 

I'm just kidding. I am enjoying this Christmas season and I hope you are too. One of my favorite things about this season is the music and family. I am missing so many members of my family this year and so I've tried to make up for it by listening to Christmas music twenty four-seven.

I hope you all have a safe and merry holiday season. Merry Christmas to all!

Friday Funny!

I just want to start by saying my heart and prayers go out to the families of Newtown, Connecticut. I know as a country we are all horrified and heartbroken for them and will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

I don't have much to say this week except remember to tell the ones you love how you feel about them and remember this Christmas season that there are many out there in need of love and support. Give of yourself to those who need it most.

Make sure you smile this weekend.

Friday Funny!

Our visitors are gone and we are missing family already. It's hard to be so far away from family during the holiday season, but we are doing our best to enjoy the season all the same. I'm not one who enjoys all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, but ever since last year it brings on a totally different meaning to me.

Last year at this time we were preparing to adopt our sweet little Mia. She has brought so much joy to our family and I feel so blessed to have her in our lives. I know she will never see this, but I want to thank Mia's birth mom for giving our family the best Christmas present we will ever get.

This weeks Friday Funny is from my mother-in-law. I'm not sure if it's for real or not, but it made me laugh either way. Just so you know I am not encouraging drunk driving, just laughing.

Have a great weekend!
