We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We have spent the last two weeks living in our p.j.'s, cuddling, eating junk, watching tons of movies, having the stomach flu (yuck), and visiting with family. Right now we're all feeling a little burnt out and are ready for another two week vacation just to recoup from Christmas:) We love and miss all our family and friends back home, you were in our thoughts daily.

Hey everyone I just wanted to post this really quick. Ever Since I saw sweet little Cliff, these orphans have been very dear to my heart and I frequently check in on them to see if they have found a forever family yet. Through Reece's Rainbow I have found Adeye's blog and have been able to see the Lord work through many people who have chosen to adopt these sweet children! I don't have a huge following but I know God can use my tiny blog for His good. If nothing more than to help spread the word for an orphan who is on the verge of never being able to be adopted. This thirteen year old boy only has TWENTY days to find a family, after that he will never have the opportunity to be adopted again! Please join me in spreading the word, I encourage you to check out Adeye's blog for more information and please go to Reece's Rainbow and give to the Angel tree fund. There's still time!!! My children got together and gave all the money from their piggy banks to little Cliff, a whopping $12.00! They inspire me:) Merry Christmas!!

Did you know you can reach "coolest mom ever" status if you make sandwiches with Skittles smiley faces?
On a side note I got my new glasses today, I've never had glasses before so this is definitely something I'm going to have to get used to. Not sure I picked the right frames, oh well:( It's overwhelming when you see all the choices and you're nervous about having glasses in the first place.

I just want to take a moment to post about this sweet little boy. Cliff was born with Down Syndrome and lives in an orphanage in Eastern Europe in awful conditions. Children born with disabilities in other countries are often placed in orphanages because they think their is no hope for them and if not adopted in the first few years of life they are placed in asylums never to leave. My heart is aching right now, I want to bring this little guy home so badly. If you feel led please click on the picture above and read his story, you can also donate to a fund that was provided for him to help a family adopt him. There are also links to the adoption website where you can check out his profile and learn more about adopting children with disabilities. Please pray for him, his face has forever been imprinted on my heart and mind.
