Where did she go?

Are you wondering where I went? Are wondering if the five children have me tied up somewhere? Or are you wondering if I just ran away to some white beach with a cool drink in hand and......... ? :)

Hehe - no I am here, but having 5 kids and it being the holiday season and still tying up loose ends from being gone so long has been keeping me VERY busy..... and I am loving every minute of it. I collapse in bed and sleep very hard.

Isaiah is doing great. He has been to the Dr. and dentist and he did amazing at both places. I am very proud of him. He still has little issues - he hates having water on his face, cats are still really not cool and if he gets too much attention when we are out he checks out (we call it his happy place). I told Justin that sometimes I feel like a rehab center with him. We are trying to teach him to express his feelings (he has never been asked what he wants, so he does not have an opinion), we are teaching him that if he put a toy down or takes his clothes off that they will be there later, we are teaching him animals are good and a lot of other little things we take for granted with having a child from birth. He has come a long way and I love watching the improvement!

Well the dish fairy never arrived like I was praying for so I guess I better get to the dishes! I hope all my bloggy friends are enjoying the Christmas season with their family and friends!


  1. Iknow you have been busy, but it's so good to see my favorite blogger back in action. Those kids will keep you busy, for sure. Wish I was there - I might know how to scare up the dish fairy for you! Love your new winter look and Christmas songs.

  2. It's nice to hear from you and I am praying for you. Have a blessed Christmas Sweet Friend.

  3. YES, I have missed you my friend. We are bringing home number 9 on Monday....Be patient with Isaiah's progress, we are still working with our daughter who spent 2 1/2 years in an orphanage--and we have had her home for 1 1/2 years. Let the Lord fill you with wisdom.

  4. I hear ya sis, and guess what the fairy never came here either.......gotta go make din din.

  5. Thanks so much for posting this... we're adopting this summer & it's so interesting & helpful to hear about the "after" side!!! :-)

  6. Praying for your sweet family during this time full of adjustments. Can't wait to begin our own time of adjustments. :)

    If you find that dish fairy, could you forward her number?

    Love in Jesus,


Love to hear from you!
