Happy 2nd Birthday Our Sweet Baby Girl!!!

Our sweet Savannah turned two today!! It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating her first one and now number two has came and gone. We had a small party featuring who else but Kai-Lan on her cake. She also had a little lady bug cake that was hers to eat all by herself, and boy did she. We had a wonderful time celebrating, she received lots of great gifts from friends and family. Savannah also received cards in the mail from her Uncle Bruce and from her very special friend Sophie who was Savannah's crib mate in the orphanage, the card had a beautiful picture of Sophie in it and Sophie's tiny little hand was drawn onto the card, it was so sweet. As I always do I thought a lot about Savannah's birth mom on this day wondering if she is thinking about Savannah. It was through her decision to give her up for a better life that we were blessed by being chosen to be her parents. My prayers go out to her tonight, we are truly thankful. Her sacrifice became our blessing.

"Happy Birthday" Baby Girl we love you so much!!

The Big Game

Jordan's football team, the Wahama White Falcons finished the season 8 - 2. With only 2 losses they made the West Virginia State playoffs. We traveled to Nicholas County High school in Summersville to play the Fayetteville Pirates. All of the fans were pumped up for the game with most everyone dressed in red and white. Savannah and Haleigh, Jordan's #1 fans enjoyed the game and was ready and dressed for the occasion. It was a great game, and the game wasn't decided until the final minutes. Unfortunately, Fayetteville won 23-20. We were proud of the boys for playing the way they did, and Jordan did a great job finishing the night with 2 sacks and several tackles. It was the last game for 7 young men as the will be graduating in May, Jordan being one of them. Well, football is over and now we start the wrestling season. This is Tannors first year of wrestling, we'll let you know how it turns out.

The bandannas we wore for the game got some more use as Savannah tried one on a few days after the game. She is starting to let me take her picture without a fuss and she actually smiles now.
