Day 120 - A Day of Chillaxing...

(for the grandparents and daddy..."Chillaxing" is combination of Chilling & Relaxing...haha!)

We actually had big plans for today..."Dillon Day Down on the Farm" with our first adoption agency, Dillon International. We were really looking forward to a day of paddle boats, zip lines, animals and more with other adoptive families...BUT we had severe weather last night and the forecast for today also called for storms so we decided to pass on the farm. Several other moms braved the stormy skies and went and they were rewarded by sunny skies. I have seen a few pictures and it looks like a GREAT time was had by all. I kinda wish we would have gone, but it was nice just chillaxing around the house :o)

We enjoyed a slow morning of movies/cartoons and finally got things together around lunchtime so we could go pick up Papa John's...it was soooooo yummy!

After lunch, we checked on our budding veggie garden...

Honestly, should my girl be that happy to have a cricket crawling up her arm? Haha!

I am telling you...some days seems so hard with four kids under six, but I know these are the days I will look back on fondly and miss like crazy!

I went to Target a few days ago and picked up a few new picture frames for the pictures we received of Sophie Le's birthfamily. She LOVES having a the pictures of her family sitting on the piano. I am so thankful that she is interested in her birthfamily and her adoption story.

After supper tonight my girls enjoyed some homemade banana bread :o)

A friend recently posted her Omy's banana nut bread receipe and I made it tonight for my little banana nuts :o) Haha! They LOVED it...thanks for the receipe, Jess! If you like banana bread you should try it, it was super easy :o)

A BIG thanks to Julie and Chris who let me know that I accidently posted two posts for Day 117! I am so thankful that I only had to correct two post titles rather than hundreds one day :o)
