Update in photos!

I totally stink at blogging! I have good intentions of keeping this blog up to date, but it just doesn't happen that way!
So, here goes a couple months worth of photos -

We started a new One Year Bible Reading plan that we're really excited about - If you're looking for a resource for this, I'd recommend this one! I love how the Lord continues to increase our desire to know Him and His Word!

LOVING a parenting class for mommas I've been in for the last 10 (or so) weeks -
Right now we're studying about godly habits! And I'm learning a lot about my own character at the same time... and lets just say, I need some serious GRACE! :) Anybody with me on this one?

Finished some projects around our house (before we got tons of snow) -
before -

 After -

Ok, so I know this one is totally cheating off ideas from others. But, when you're on a budget and in the adoption process - one learns to work with what they have! Please accept my apologies for stealing your beautiful ideas!

You too can have CHEAP artwork with scraps at home!
For our dining room -

Hallway -

A new corkboard/chalkboard for Scripture memory, adoption updates, prayer requests, Christmas cards, and scribbling with mom in the kitchen! Couldn't find the right size, so we bought the corkboard, got some extra chalkboard paint from a friend (thanks Becky) and used some trim we had (my hubby is amazing with woodwork!) -

**Yes, that says we are 14 on the girls list, 5 on the boys list, and 10 on the siblings list! :)

Had the Ucherek family Thanksgiving at our house for the first time! It was so fun!
Little Ava, our niece -
Little Addie, another niece -
The whole crew - 
Isn't she pretty?!?
Little Ethan, our nephew... he's getting so big! 
it's a little too late for them... but look at those cute jammies! 

The Annual Thanksgiving Football Game - 

Then we just had to video little miss Ava kissing on her cousin Ethan! 

And Ava saying her favorite uncles name... 'Uncle Danny'.. how cute! Yep, she has Dan wrapped around her little finger! As do Ethan and Addie! :)
