Surprise..... we are a family of THREE!!!!!

Well it has been a while since I have been on here I know!!!  I can honestly say that the last month has been awesome!!!  Most of you know that we are now parents to sweet Laney Marie!!  I will post that story later.  It is one of the most obvious God stories in my life so far.  Stay tuned for the story.  We certainly have SEEN God at work in our lives.  His timing is perfect.  The last month has been AWESOME, rewarding, hard, busy..... the list could go on and on.  Just wanted to post some pictures of when we first brought Laney home.  Our families are in love with her.  She is going to be so spoiled.  We have had countless visits, calls, texts, emails, cards and prayers.  We have truly felt that our friends and family are genuine in their joy for us.  There have been lots of tears shed over this precious little angel and her story.  We are overjoyed to bring her home and are humbled to be able to raise her. We are also honored to tell her the wonderful story of how God brought her to us!! Emma and Evan didn't know what to do with Laney at first.  I will never forget Evan's face.  He starred at her for the longest time!!  Emma wants to stuff her paci in her mouth.  She is a little mama.  Then the big cousins came to visit.  Gray was out of the car and in the kitchen before the car ever stopped moving.  She is obsessed with babies.  She was ready to take on all the responsibilities of a mother.  Let me just say.... she is pretty good with her to only be in the third grade.  She has been practicing on her baby dolls for a while now.  Both Emma and Gray both changed their baby's name to Laney!  I am so glad that they all have a cousin now.  It won't be too long and we will have another cousin in the family (sweet baby Reid)!!  It was so much fun to send out a massive text to all our friends and family.  My phone has died several times~ it was on overtime with all the texts and phone calls that were going through. 

After lots of waiting...... our families finally get to meet Laney!! It feels good to be a family of three!!

God is good!  His faithfulness endures forever!!!  Until next time!!
