Introducing our Son...

As you know, I decided awhile back not to use the kids' real names on the blog, but for this special occasion I couldn't resist :o)

Introducing Jonah Henderson Arnold...

No longer a foster child, simply OUR child for now and forever more.

In case you missed our court pictures, you can see them here. Such a happy, happy day!!!!!

When we chose our two younger daughters' names, we chose to keep part of their birth names. With Baby Boy, that was not an option...for obvious reasons :o( So, we decided the next best thing would be to give him a name from each side of his forever family. Of course, Arnold from his father's side and Henderson from my side.

We had a busy chore day around the house today...LOTS (and LOTS and LOTS) of laundry, cleaning and a trip to the grocery store. As busy as we were, I did make it a point to fit in some March Madness for Baby Boy :o)

Something tells me that the month of March will involve more than the daffodil festival and spring break in the future :o

Sunshine's school had a rare "free dress" day today. The school usually have a strict dress code. I wish her school didn't have a dress code...I HATE uniforms!

Her class took a field trip to see the daffodils this afternoon. She said she "had a blast running around like crazy!" I totally believe her :o)

She just LOVES life. I hope she always does :o)

And since sister got to choose her clothes for today, the littles did too :o) I thought Sweet Pea's outfit was so fitting to her personality. My sweet little cheerleader at the grocery store :o)

As I was going through Sunshine's backpack, I found this assignment...

We got Redbox movies for tonight. Marilyn for us and Puss and Boots (again) for the kids. Have a great night!
