Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

A little dramatic flair in the title...I know, but...........

My boys have been seen dressed as fairies and Cinderella. They have worn pretty jewely, princess sunglasses, and a fairy watch with a lovely Tinkerbell dangling.  They were actually fighting over the yellow heart sunglasses until Grandma came to the rescue with a pair of princess sunglasses that ended the argument.

They are often seen making a get away in a pink and purple princess jeep.

And, I'd be more than happy to show you some photos if I could find my memory card....

(Yeah, I know, I lost my camera in China. You helped me pray it found. Could you help me pray the memory card found?)

Meanwhile back at the ranch.....the boys are in need of a few boy things....like boy watches...and boy toys for outdoors that aren't pink and purple...a Superman costume...maybe a pair of blue star sunglasses.

And, then there's Ellie.....I don't know how you can help.

She was sitting on the toilet this weekend when she said to me, "My hiney stinks." (And, whose doesn't?)

But, I hide to take the bait so I asked for details.

I asked, "When's the last time you pooped?" (Hmmmmmm, lots of these posts mention poop lately.)

Anyway, Ellie says, "Ummm, no." Looking as if she is thinking on it more, she says, "Ummmm, no."  And again, "Ummm, no."

Then she said, "Noooooooo....November!!!"

I would say Josie-Tatum is the only one with much sense around here; however, I now know she is losing it, too.

Her sister Whitney has allowed her to watch far too many episodes of Say Yes to the Dress and some other show about dream weddings. Well, Josie-Tatum announced Saturday that she had decided what her wedding favors would be.

A little young, I am aware, to be thinking of such things at 9...but again, I took the bait.

And, she says, "Tacos."

And, with a straight face she said, "The people could throw lettuce at us instead of rice."

So, if all of your children are grown, I invite you to join our Funny Farm......or I can help you complete all of the paperwork and you, too, can be a crazy as us!
