Funny Photos for Friday!

Isn't it ridiculous sometimes at what we think is so cute and funny? So he put his pull-up and jammie pants on his head...what's the big deal? The big deal is that he is so stinkin cute whatever he does! Ok, ok, so I'm biased...I know you agree with me!

Another precious little one came home...

God gave another little child a forever family and for that, we give Him all the praise that He so righteously deserves! The Lansford's arrived home tonight from China with their sweet baby girl, KayLi. We had the priviledge of being at the airport in Midland when they arrived! As I entered the airport, it brought back such sweet memories. It seems like just yesterday that we arrived home to a wonderful homecoming with our little asian sensation, but it has been seven months already. In Miss KayLi walked just like she owned the place and she just walked up to everyone present and gave them a hug like she had known us all her whole little life. She is adorable! We are so blessed to have this sweet family as our fairly new friends. Again, it is so amazing at how God brings people into your life that you share such a sweet, cherished connection with. Welcome Home, Lansfords! You were truly missed! Welcome Home, KayLi- you are truly blessed to have the wonderful family God chose for you!

Toryn is ready for his new friend to come home from China!

Welcome Home, sweet one! You were prayed for a long time! Oh, you were truly worth the wait!

The two proud mama's with their gifts from God!

KayLi with her proud brother, Ryan and her sister, Emily.

Can't ever have enough hugs from a sister!

KayLi was giving free hugs like crazy! (I even got one myself and yes, it made me cry hard!) Here she is giving her Grandma Sharon a big one! So sweet!

Come out and play with me...

Last night, I hosted my Christmas Club friends. I love these ladies! It's so nice to visit and fellowship. Vickie, my friend from work, brought her daughter, Emily. Toryn had so much fun playing with her! She is such a cutie!

They took turns playing on the scooter, or motorcycle as Toryn calls it! By the way, thanks Aunt Crickie (Cristi), for the scooter. Toryn loves it!

Oh, no! "This is what happens when I stop and pose for a picture, Mom! Thanks!"

Are we cute or what? Toryn looks like he is blushing- guess it's because he is getting a hug from the queen!

Emily is such a little princess! Thank you for coming to play with Toryn, Emily! We must do this again, soon!

Emily was cracking us up with her "funny faces". This ones for you, Vick!

Can you hear me now?

For those of you who have had the priviledge to carry on a conversation with Toryn on the phone, here's the smile you can't see on the other end. This kid LOVES to talk on the phone! I wonder where he got that! One hint, it's not from me! (Termite's by far worse than any teenage girl on the phone!) When Toryn talks to you on the phone, I always wish you could see his face. He smiles the entire time. This time, he decided to take a break and relax on the couch, but normally, he is walking around, with his hand on his hip, smiling from ear to ear!

Torynado stikes again.....

Oh, man.... he was such a little clean freak, what has happened? Guess we have rubbed off on him! Bummer....oh, well...we're having a blast. What's that saying? "Cleaning house when kids are growing is like shoveling the drive when it is snowing!" I find that so true!

Dishes too?.........YYYYES!

He folds clothes, carries in the groceries, puts the groceries up, picks up trash, gives a back massage like you wouldn't believe, and today I found out he likes to wash dishes!!! Besides all of that, he's cute as a bug! He's a keeper!

...And their off!

We are so excited! Our friends, The Landsfords, are leaving today for CHINA! They will be picking up their precious little girl, KayLi. God is so awesome. The Landsfords moved to Forsan about 2 years ago, and they had been in the adoption process a little longer than we have. It's so amazing and fun at how God places people in your life with such a connection. Who would have thought that in little bitty Forsan, Texas, there would end up being at least three families who have adopted from China. God is so good! This sweet family is just precious and they have become some of our dear friends. Thank you, Lord, for sending the Landsfords to us! I know they would appreciate your prayers as they travel and recieve KayLi. If you would like to follow their journey, they have a blog:

Precious KayLi- isn't she just a doll? She is two, will be three about a month after they return home from China, just like Toryn was.

The Landsford's- guys we are praying hard for you! Have fun, be safe, don't eat really gross things, take tons of pictures, and blog often! Blessings!

Thank you, Lord, for the freedoms we have in America! Thank you, Lord, for the men and women who are fighting for our freedoms. Thank you, Lord, for letting Toryn come home to a country where he has the freedom to worship you and carry his Bible! We praise your name!
