And 10 months later.... Halloween

I have neglected this... It is hard to update when you can't add half of your family... Our foster and Pre-Adoptive kids can't be shown on here...

OH MY!!!

I am SO guilty of neglect! I am embarassed!
This photo MAY explain why!
Our family has grown!
Cheyenne is now 16!
Mariah is 8!
We have added 4 more to our family!
Dane, 5, Malachi, 3, Aunna and Linnea are almost 2!

Pumpkin Carving 2010

Carol's relatives grew these little guys...
The duct tape with "700" on it is the wieght.
We picked these to carve.
400 and 640 pounds.
The biggest grown was 1039 pounds.
A little serious carving!
Part of the mouth...

Cleaning out the guts...

McCarty Family Reunion, in the Basement

This year we had tornado warnings every night
of the Family Reunion.
I have NEVER spent so much time in that basement!
By the time our 8th trip down there rolled around
we had it all figured out.
Someone grabbed a cooler of beer while others
brought the guitars... We had a sing-along!
Carol fell in love...
The kids had a GREAT time!
Cousin Abby (from Carol's side) joined us
and helped catch fireflies!

My Mother's Day Quilt retreat

The view from the work room.
2 of my favorite mother's!
The Schoenstatt Chapel
Hard at work!
Some of my accomplishment...
4 purses for teacher's gifts at the end of the year,
2 sundresses for Mariah,
A Dora Quilt for Lola... Mom actually sewed that one together!
Lola picked the fabrics, I planned and cut it out!

First Day of School

All set for Kindergarten!
OK, so when Cheyenne got ready earlier in the day,
Mommy wasn't very awake.
My camera is acting up and this is the only photo
I got. I will try again after school.

We have had a wonderful and busy summer!
We did a lot of respite care for other foster parents.
Spent time on "vacation".
Hung out with friends and family...
Now we have full-time foster kids.
Our 5 yr old girl and 4 yr old boy are with us indefinitely.
We are all adjusting well and
the new kids are blossoming in the safety,
structure, and love we provide.
