Thanksgiving with the Forman's

I had some awesome helpers for Thanksgiving dinner prep.  On Wednesday morning, Lily & Ella helped me with the pies and EVERYONE "helped" with the zweibach.

The Forman crew arrived around 4pm on Wednesday.  
We had so much fun while they were here.

Grandpa & Grandma visit NC

We just enjoyed a whole week with Grandpa and Grandma here.  We had such a nice time together and the week went way too quickly!  Grandpa & Grandma came to attend our adoption celebration, which is a separate post.  Here are the other fun things we did this week, besides the party.

Visiting Lily & Ella at school

LOTS of playing outside - the weather was awesome

The weather was so nice while everyone was here.  We spent a lot of time outside and in our new screened in porch.

There is nothing like enjoying a meal with family.

Thanks so much for coming to visit, Grandpa & Grandma!
We already miss you so much.

Forever Family - Adoption Celebration

Saturday, November 4 we had an adoption celebration with family and friends.  We had beautiful weather, a great turnout and a lot of fun.

We had a breakfast party with Duck Donuts, fruit and coffee from Port City Java.

It meant so much to us that Dad & Mom Tuttle as well and Jon, Em & Blake made the trip to come celebrate with us.  

Lots of friends came too!

The kids had a blast with bubbles

We held the party at the "secret park" right behind our house.  It has a full court plus a half court basketball court. Playground. Softball field. Paved path all the way around. Two pavilions.  It was perfect! We also had corn hole, bocci ball, lawn bowling, basketballs, chalk and bubbles.

This sweet lady, in the white zip-up is Jeri. She was Benny & Wren's GAL.  She was fabulous! We just love her and are so thankful for her.

"This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes."
