Our Journey to Nevaeh Starts Tomorrow.

We finished filling out our application for our new exciting journey to bring home Savannah's sister, Nevaeh. We decided to name her Nevaeh because we thought it was a pretty name but mostly because it is Heaven spelled in reverse. A few weeks ago we met with our social worker to discuss some of the new rules for international adoption and when we seen her, the first thing out of Savannah's mouth was "Are you going to get me a baby sister". It was so cute. We ask her where we are going and she says "China".

The application goes out tomorrow.....Ready for the looooong wait...

Christmas Tiime

This was a really great Christmas. We had a good time watching Savannah open her gifts and playing with her new toys. Jordan, Tannor, and Haleigh also had fun watching her. We started off Friday evening at Melinda's parents. Saturday morning we opened gifts at our house. Then Saturday afternoon we visited my parents. Needless to say by Saturday night we were all tired and full. Sunday night we went to church and received the message by one of our very own, Jordan. He did a great job speaking on the Greatest gift of all... Jesus. Here are a few pics from this past week.

Playing Catch Up...

Trying to play catch up since the last time we posted. We have had 2 birthdays, fun in the swimming pool, and our county fair. Jordan turned 18 on his birthday which was actually way back in June. We got him a small cake for home as we celebrated his birthday during the youth camping trip. Tannor turned 16 in August. Savannah has been learning how to swim in ours and her papaw's pool. Savannah rode her first...and last ride at our county fair. It was the merry-go-round and even though mama was right beside her she screamed and cried until I finally took her picture. We met David, Lois, and Leila, our friends from Pt. Pleasant. Leila rode almost all of the rides but we couldn't convince Savannah to ride with her. Here are a few pics from the last few months."Big 18"

A Visit With The Foy's

Today we had a much anticipated visit with the Foy's. We had a GREAT time. It rained just about all day but we did manage to get in some playground and pool time and a short dip in the ocean. Sophie and Savannah started the day off on the playground swinging and going down the slides. We drove to McDonalds for lunch and the girls started to open up a little. When we got back to the condo we hit the indoor pool due to the rain. We tried the beach after the pool but the rain struck again. We had spaghetti for dinner and then it was time for the visit to end. We wish we could have froze time for a while as it flew by so fast. We had a great time today and are looking forward to meeting them and others from our travel group in the future.
