Can't help, but laugh

The boys are so funny, it's fun and intimidating at times to find out how much they already know... A couple of nights ago at dinner time, we were all seated, prayed, and began eating. Well, everyone except GT. He hasn't really been interested in dinner for the past week or so. Tonight, RT told him that if he didn't eat with us, then he'd have to be disciplined and go to bed. He chose the later, so off he went. When RT returned, FT said, I'm going to eat my food! He did except the green bean casserole. He eyed it and took a small bite... he put down his fork, eyed it again, looked up at us, and then said, I think I'm going to have to get in trouble, too and go to bed. (in other words, it's not worth it to eat that food!) I was so bummed, I had to excuse myself to the den and I laughed so hard... it's was awful, but it was very funny to see how he determined his choice. RT contained himself (barely), he got FT to eat one more bite and that was it.  Life with the boys, truly amazes us and we are so thankful for them.

Getting Started...

Well, it's truly been a great week with the boys and RT.  I've finally begun our family blog and I am looking forward to sharing our life and daily journey (for better or worse) with our family and friends. So much happens on a weekly basis with the boys, especially at their ages they are growing up so fast. We are almost a year and half into our adoption process for our daughter, NJ. The process has been long, laborious, and exciting, we still get giddily excited about the time when we'll all finally be able to welcome her home, forever.  We hope that you enjoy our journey and we welcome your comments, encouragement, and prayers.
