Adoption Birth Certificate & Beaus...

This morning started out a little hectic...I couldn't find baby boy's left school shoe anywhere! I REALLY dislike looking for things. For that very reason, I have a place for all of the kids' stuff. He had been doing a good job putting his shoes in the shoe drawer by the garage door like his sisters, but I guess he must have gotten distracted yesterday :o) I gave up on the search and stopped by Target on the way and picked him up a new pair of shoes...
He LOVES getting new shoes and clothes :o) {Of course, I found his left shoe within five mintues of getting home this afternoon!}

After I dropped off the babies, I headed to the dentist for a quick visit. Who doesn't love a trip to the dentist? Ha! My next errand was much more exciting...the Department of Health for baby boy's new birth certificate!!! Yayayayayay!
For those of you that haven't adopted and are curious, when you adopt a child, you are issued a birth certificate in their new name with you and your spouse are listed as the parents. There is no mention of adoption or the birth family's information.

Next, I made another stop by Target to pick up some hair serum for a friend of mine.
I just started using this stuff on Sweet Pea's hair and I LOVE IT!!!!!

I finished up my errands (including a super yummy lunch with hubby) a little early so I picked up Little Pumpkin early from preschool and we read books at the church's playground.
I have to share a little funny story about Little Pumpkin. When I went to her class to pick her up, she was playing with a cash register in the play area while the rest of her class was sitting a the table doing an assignment with the teacher. I thought that was kinda odd so I asked her why she was playing during work time. She said, "Oh, I finished my work a long time ago so the teacher said I could go play. That happens all of the time." Haha! Little Stinker!

When I picked up Baby Boy, he headed straight to the preschool director's office to get a sucker. Getting a sucker at the end of the day is pretty much his favorite thing about going to school! Ha! When we went into her office, Baby Boy noticed her television was on (with no sound) and he said, "I like this show" and pretty much was frozen in his tracks, eyes glued to the television. I said, "Hey J, go ahead and pick out a sucker, we need to go." So, he walked to the sucker basket, picked one out, opened it, stuck it in his mouth and then he sat in the middle of the floor facing the television and said, "I like this show." I told him we needed to go and he looked straight at the and said, "Mama, I like this show. I watch it." Haha! Guess what "show it was?" March madness! Yep, basketball! Haha! He is such a boy!

After school, we took advantage of the summer temperatures and played outside for a couple hours! Oh how I am LOVING the weather this year!!!

Little Pumpkin put one of her smaller bows in "Sonja Le's" hair so they could be twinkies :o)

I am SO EXCITED I can finally show you this handsome little man's face!!!!!!!!!
And I can honestly tell you a very important fact about him...HE IS A MESS!!! Ha!

And since we're being are his sisters!

But I wouldn't change it for anything!

LOVE my babies!

This is a boy that loves to wear his boots :o)

Their new favorite game...airplane on the swings :o)

Our church does a sweet Daddy/Daughter date night called Butterflies and Beaus. It is really a sweet, sweet time for them to share together. Sunshine was super excited about going on a fancy date with her Daddy. I have TONS (AND TONS AND TONS) of pictures to share, but this is already getting a bit long so I will just leave you will a couple :o)

Sunshine's reaction to her daddy bringing her flowers when he picker her up for their date :o)
Pure sweetness!
I sure do love these two!
