First Kelleys Island trip for Ty

















































































Each summer we LOVE to spend time on Kelleys Island (on Lake Erie).. well a few weeks ago Ty made his first visit. HE LOVED it as much as we all do. Lily was so excited to show Ty around and we all had a great time.
Grandma & Grandpa were there with us and that made things even more fun!

Now & Then

















Lily's little friend Kayla (she is also our neighbor) gave this bike to Lily.
Let me just tell you.... SHE LOVES IT. She just takes off and thinks she is so cool. Now she even likes to wear her helmet.



When I saw her on this bike I had a quick flashback to October 2006 of her on a bike that our neighbors bought her.....
That picture is below...





















Our little girl is growing up so fast....

Serious business with silly glasses




















My dear friend Robin at Red Thread Stitches sent these adorable glasses to Lily and Ty.
Knowing Lily's love for sunglasses or any glasses she thought these would be a hit.
They sure are! They had no idea I was taking this picture... hee hee
They were so serious I couldn't resist sneaking in a picture. The minute they caught me they started to laugh.

A princess with 6 crowns





















Miss Lily did wonderful today.
We woke her up at 5:45am (2-3 hours before her normal waking up). She was surprisingly happy and wanted to make sure I put two hair ponies in (ponytails) and that she had her pink barrettes to match her pink crocs. OH MY........
She was in the car by 6:05am.
Her surgery started around 7:30am and we were home with her SIX new crowns at 9:30am.
(apparently she needed more than they thought)


Today was sort of a Dora Marathon. It was raining outside which made the being inside even better. Ty was delighted to watch show after show with Lily.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!!!!!!

Lily Surgery

















This is one of my all time favorite Lily pictures.
I took this with my new lens that Jeff, Lily, & Ty bought me for my birthday and Mother's Day.
Lily had no idea I was taking this. I was standing in the kitchen and she was out on the swing set.
She was climbing and sliding like crazy and then decided she needed a little break.

Tomorrow Miss Lily has 4 crowns put on her back teeth. The dentist says this is from lack of good nourishment as a baby. Many adoptive parents have told me they went through this with their children. The procedure is an outpatient surgical procedure at Children's Hospital. She will have general anesthesia.... thank goodness because I can't imagine how many people it would take to hold her down for 4 crowns. I know this isn't a huge surgery but we are praying it is as painless as possible and over quickly (for Lily, Mom, and Dad).



Ty Baby!!!!!!!! He is such a little sweetie!
He loves the new swing set and he loves to have his picture taken.
