PICTURES OF MYLEE.....

These are just some of the pictures of Mylee that we have gotten from John and Cheryl! The first two are my most favorite! She just looks like a precious little baby doll! I cannot wait for her to come home to her forever family!










FLORIDA VACATION 2009.....

We were very excited to be going to Florida this year with the Wankel's! We stayed at a condo in Venice, Florida which is about an hour south of St. Petersburg. We started our drive down at about 7:00 pm on Friday, July 10th. We stopped at Nashville, TN and stayed then drove the rest of the way down the next day. The drive was long...but worth it once we got there!
If we weren't at the beach we were at the condo's swimming pool! So we all came back with a tan...but some of came back with a burn!!! We went to 3 different beaches while we were there: Venice Beach, Siesta Keys and a beach right next to Sharky's. Sharky's on the Pier is a restaurant right on the beach. We ate there on Wednesday night and it was delicious!!!
A couple evening's we went to an Outlet Mall about 30 minutes away! We all found some pretty good bargains there! One night Milady and Berkeley met us there! It was so great to see them! Berkeley is getting so big! On Friday night Chad, Milady and Berkeley came to the condo and stayed all night.
We had so much fun getting to spend our vacation with the Wankel's! I hope we get to do it again next year! I only wish we could've stayed in Florida a little longer! Maybe next time! A picture of the girls all buckled in ready for a lllooooooonnnnngggg car ride

4TH OF JULY 2009.....

We grilled out and had the Wankel family up for the 4th of July. We made pork chops, hot wings and fried livers. The livers were so stinkin' good! For dessert we made home-made ice cream in a bag. The kids absolutely had a blast! It was a little bit messy, but it was so worth it in the end. YUMMY! It was a rainy dreary day so we stayed inside. We watched the "National Hot Dog Eating Contest" for 2007, 2008 and 2009! Which by the way was extremely disgusting!

Shake, shake, shake....shake your ice cream!
