On Saturday morning, I had breakfast with two great friends. We've been doing this for the past few years usually meeting at Cracker Barrel. This time, Julie invited us to her house and made a yummy breakfast for us. I love these girls and feel blessed how our friendship has grown over the years through doing bible studies together, taking walks, having breakfast together & watching our families grow. The newest member is in Janel's arms...little Maya is four months old now. Julie's daughter, Kylie, is the same age as Kaiya and they adopted her a few months before we adopted Kaiya. It's been fun to see them grow up together as friends. This is a picture of the girls together as newborns. And now, we are both going through the adoption waiting period together again.
I've been working on Kevin for the past year to get a cat...not because I like them a whole lot, but because of a little problem we have with small grey animals with pink noses and long tails. Kevin has always declared a resounding "NO WAY", which I can understand since he does have a mild allergy that flares up when around cats. But, when I brought it up again this fall, I noticed that he didn't reject the idea as quickly as he had before. So, three weeks ago we stopped by a house with a "free kittens" sign in the front yard in search of a kitten to add to our family. Instead of bringing one home, we brought home two and the kids (mainly Kaiya) have had fun playing with them. Kaiya will disappear and I will find her in the garage holding her kitty. It's sweet. Meet Jack & Abby...the newest members to our family.
