Gimmie A "T"...

The Hero was at the fire station yesterday.


The Angel and The Dino were supposed to go to a birthday party.


They had talked about it for days.


But at the last minute, they said they would rather paint.




So we did.




The temps in Oklahoma have topped over 100 for almost two solid weeks.


I set up a fan on the porch.


Brought out the paints,


the paper,


the play clothes,


and just let them have at it.













We painted with brushes,


our fingers,


and made a complete mess.


We painted dogs,


and sunsets,


our names


dots,





uh, The Dino really never explained this one.



But even in the middle of a beautiful,

hot summer day,

a portion of our minds

were several continents away,

thinking about our newest family member.



Each of the kids wanted to paint something

for their soon-to-be sibling,

so Mommy painted it and

The Dino and The Angel put their stamp of approval on it.




That's right,



We LOVE Thailand!




Thank you so much to all of you that voted.


You all must know how much we love Africa,


because over 40% of the votes were
guessing that we were adopting from Uganda.




Not this time.




This time we're headed to Thailand.


Where our newest member waits.




Our winner for the "Worth the Wait" tee is:


Amanda from To God Be The Glory blog!




Thanks to everyone who played along!
