Birthday's, Birthday's, Birthday's

We have 4 birthdays to celebrate in less than a months time frame. I don't want to miss anyone so I'll do a post and wish all 4 a Happy Birthday.

First this month is Ashton. She turned a BIG TWO OOOH yesterday. Alex will be celebrating his birthday next week and he'll be turn a big SIX. A week later Joseph will also turn a BIG TWO OOOH. Yep he married an older woman. Finally the love of my life will turn a BIG fourty five. A special Happy Birthday wish out to each one. I love you guys.

On a side note Johnny and I are dieting. He started 2 weeks ago and has already lost 10 pounds. I created a weight loss challenge at work and I'm competing with 9 others to see who losses the biggest percentage of weight in 2 months. We started our diet yesterday. The smack talk here at work has already started so I'm anxious to see who ends up winning. The weight ranges start at 140 and go up to 264 so it'll be an interesting competion.

I'm still looking for a church home so please keep us in your prayers that we'll be able to find the right church. We're also still trusting the Lord to find us a buyer for the Valley. Please agree with us in prayer that the Lord will send the right person our way.

Blessings to each of you.

Queen Addie and King Alex

Earlier in the week Addie was "Queen Addie" in her class. I guess they have a king or queen of the day so she got to wear a crown and take pictures and stuff to school and all the kids drew picture of Queen Addie and made a book for her. She had a fun day and came home wearing her crown.

So yesterday Alex came home saying that today would be his day to be King of the day. So we gathered his picutres and stuff for him to take to school and put them in his back pack. Nothing more was really said about it last night. This morning he comes upstairs as I'm getting ready and I say good morning son.

He responds...

I'M KING... too funny!I guess he's really looking forward to being king for the day.

Yesterday as I was driving home I realized I'd missed the update to announce that 3 years ago Alex became our son on October 1st. On October 12th we'll celebrate him being in the U.S. with our family for 3 years. I can't imagine three years going by so quickly but they have. He and Addie both are such a light to our family and we are so blessed to be called their mom and dad.

Just this morning I stopped at the end of the road to feed the horses. They came down the road in the truck with their dad as I was waiting to get back in my car. I see hands waving and kisses being blown my way.. Now how much more of a blessing can you ask for! I'm one blessed momma to 4 wonderful kids (even though two are grown!)
Blessings to you also.Tina
