1.Olivia's birthday gift was a trip to see Toby Mac again.  This time he was playing with many artists like Ryan Stevenson, Mandisa, Danny Gokey and Finding Favour.  We had a blast but we had  to leave at 11 because I was afraid of falling asleep on the way home.  Toby was still playing.  Man do they put on a show.

2. The speech class for our homeschool group performed their acts they have been working on for months.  Odin and Jonah did a skit from star wars and their group did great.  They were all so fun to watch.

 I’m thinking about the greatest gift ever given to me, you and the entire world.  He took on the sin of the world…He took on death…and won.  
Love wins.  
How humbling and amazing and incredible and I just will never grasp the magnitude of His love for me and you.  
We don’t deserve it. 
 We’re ugly sinners and yet in Christ, we are new creations.  
We are beautiful. 
It absolutely floors me and I am beyond grateful.

We are so grateful for all of you and all of your love! 

Happy Easter!

Busy, busy, Busy

This little star has been wearing undies..can't wait to be done with diapers but yet it makes me sad too!

we were  loving these newborn diapers we had for almost 2 weeks though. We got to love on a foster baby for a little bit which was so much fun!

We also got invited to speak and share our story at an event in Milwaukee.  We had so much fun there and are so grateful for organizations like Gift of Adoption.  Helping families with the funds to adopt. 

The kids loved getting spoiled and loved on by everyone. 
 Thank you again Greg and Shelley

These bundt cakes they blessed us with were sooo yummy.

Olivia's school dough map!

My 2 little stars just figured out what blowing bubbles is all about.  So messy and so much fun!

Our friends gave us a chemistry lab kit for the  when the kiddos got bigger.  Olivia decided to bust it out and give it a whirl.  This girl loves her some good science.

We're picking up Grandma Mimi today so we will be missing in action for awhile.  We have lots of things planned and the kids are stoked!  
 We also have some big news to share.  Odin and I will finally be going to Haiti in the fall to do some mission work for a week with a group from our church. We've been wanting to go for many many years but wanted to wait until the kiddos turned a certain age.  We are doing lots of fundraising otherwise we wouldn't be able to go.  We are super excited and we will be keeping everyone updated on here.  Please keep us in your prayers.  Thank you so much!
