No Title

I got my hair cut last week.  
I'm happy with it.
Gillian told me the day after, 
"Your hair doesn't look as nice as it did yesterday.
But, it still looks OK."

Kendall is growing up.  
She is trying to get the chubbiest Adams' baby award.
We'll see.  Gillian still holds the top spot.
But Kendall seems to be getting close.
She rolls over now.  
And, she's just a dear doll.  We love her.

We got a new chair for our living room.
Gillian saw a photo online, prior to it arriving & assured me that it would be fine.
"it was fancy enough."
Once it got here & we set it up, she said, "it was good because it wasn't too fancy."

This has been a strange week for us.
Every morning I have to be out of the house with all the kids ready before 8am.
I've never done this before - being out every morning.
It's weird.
But, we are handling it okay.
Gillian & Peyton have been attending Vacation Bible School & they love it.
Moira & Kendall & went shopping downtown yesterday
while the big kids were in class.
Everyone kept declaring to me, "wow!  you have your hands full!!"
I just smiled.
I shopped at Twist.  I love that store.
Best consignment store ever.

Date night tonight.
We're having Halibut with Grapefruit & Avocado.
And Coconut Gelato.  Not homemade.
Easy, but special.
And not kid friendly.
They'll eat some Annie's mac & cheese.

In the adoption department - we finally got our completed home study
& have sent in our application to USCIS.
Our docs are almost all together for our dossier.

And, the thing that is starting to stress me out a bit, but excite me, too -
Our carnival is only a couple weeks away!!

I need to get to typing up the to do list for that.
And rally together more folks.
I'd better go.

Kendall is getting SO big! And she is very cute.
Love the rug in her bedroom.

The new chair looks great! I can't wait to see it, and I am glad that Gilly approves.

Can't wait to hear about VBS. :)

I can totally imagine the kids acting that way during your dinner. Got to love them all.
