Here is Delaney with her three year old class. Aren't they cute! Of course I think the cutest is the little girl in the pink dress :)

We had a great Thanksgiving! Delaney spent over a week at her grandparents. She had a great time there but seemed to be ready to come home. Joshua only got to stay 3 days due to school. He loves going there.

It was so sweet to see how much the kids missed each other while they were apart. The first person Delaney wanted to talk to on the phone was always Joshua. I just love watching them together. Although they irritate each other, they love each other deeply.

Joshua is wanting to have more children around the house. He would love to have a huge family. I told him that he and his wife would have to have a lot of kids. He is concerned though because he doesn't know if his wife will be big enough to have that many kids. He has already picked her out. She is Delaney's friend Emory. He has been pretty adamant that they will marry for some time. He told a friend that he wanted to marry a Korean girl since he knows alot about them. I mean, his sister is Korean after all!! He is so funny!

Tiger Cubs, Party Paradise and other ramblings

It has been over a week since I posted. Boy, time sure flies by!

Joshua has decided that now that soccer is over, he wants to be a Cub scout. Actually he wanted to be one before, but his schedule was already too busy. He is very excited about being a part of Boy Scouts. It sure looks like a lot of fun. I was in girl scouts as a child and had a blast.

Joshua is also in a drawing class one day a week. He loves it. He wants to take it year round. We will have to see as it is a little bit expensive. He has drawn some great things though. He has always loved to draw so I hate to not pursue his interests.

Where does one draw the line on too much activity and pursuing a child's interest. If any one has the answer, please let me know!

Delaney is doing well. She loves pre-school. She has had a cold the last few days but it is improving. She is really looking forward to spending time with Grandma and Grandpa for 9 days. She leaves today and will have them all to herself until Joshua gets there on Thanksgiving. Her trip is all she is talking about these days. We will see how she does once she gets there :). I think they can keep her busy enough though.

We went to Party Paradise last night. It is an AWESOME place! If you are in the Tulsa area, please go check it out. The manager is just starting to get the word out. We had the whole place to ourselves last night. They have 4 Giant Jupiter Jumps, volleyball, scooters, basketball, Foosball, air hockey and a nice HEATED indoor swimming pool. All of this for $6.50/ kid and $2 for me to swim as well.
Go check it

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We played this video at church this weekend for our annual adoption awareness presentation.

The preacher also read a great letter from President Bush proclaiming November, National Adoption Month.

Blast from the Past
Here is a clip I love of Joshua singing. He was around 2 at the time. We call the song the BBQ song as we can not understand what he is saying but it sounds like he says BBQ. He is singing in to the end of a stick horse. He laid it across our table and used it as a microphone

In Honor of National Adoption Month, I have added the video that we presented at church two years ago.

And The Oscar Goes To.........

The kids had seen the commercials for "March of the Penguins". I was hesitant to take them since it was a documentary and not a cartoon. I just knew that Delaney would DEFINITELY have difficulty sitting through it.

I took them to the dollar movie last night to see. No loss if we had to leave! Oh My Goodness! What an awesome movie! It was truly facinating! And we think we make sacrifices to have children.

The kids (both of them) had many relevant questions during the movie. It was a great learning experience for them. They loved it.

I will warn that you will have to discuss "survival of the fittest", death and Predator/Prey scenerios.

I highly recommend it!

Here is my parent's new dog Essie playing soccer with Joshua. She is really good. Maybe she could be in the next Soccer Dog movie :)

Broken Arrow, Ok.
Worship start time: 10:45 am

We will be sitting in the front pews on the right side as you enter the sanctuary.

I am hoping to be able to add the adoption video to this blog site. If anyone knows how, please contact me with instructions :)

The kids had a blast last night. We went to our friend's neighborhood and went trick or treating with them. Delaney was timid on the first house. After the first house, she led the pack. Her little legs wore out towards the end though. Joshua had a blast trick or treating with his friends. He decided that Elephant needed to just stay home after he was shown to his friends :)
