WordFUL Wednesday

I have been such a slacker blogger lately…okay, I’ve been slacking for months now, who am I kidding!  Time just gets away from me…

I was thinking that this post could be titled, “Wishful Wednesday” because I am wishing it was summer…

So we could be playing out in the yard.  Or maybe it could be called “Warm Wednesday”…

So we could be out in our boat on the water! 

Or maybe this post should be titled, “Wacky Wednesday” so Hannah and Peter could have a reason to act silly…

But instead it’s just “Wintery Wednesday” here in Minnesota and I am SO SICK OF SNOW AND COLD WEATHER!!!  Anyone else with me???

WordFUL Wednesday

I call this picture “Goalie Greta!”  All the kids on her hockey team have to take turns trying the goalie position.  Greta was just dreading it but it actually turned out to be fun for her!  Isn’t she a sweet goalie!  It’s seems funny to see my Girlie girl all decked out in hockey gear but she’s a versatile one…she can be girlie and sporty, I guess!

In my last post I thanked those of you who left comments for my giveaway and promised to donate a dollar to a Guatemalan charity for each comment that was left.  We choose to give money to Vanessa of Journey of the Heart, a fellow adoptive mom who is trying to make a difference in the lives of children in Guatemala. You can check out the exciting work she is trying to do by clicking on her name above!

And the Winner Is….

I know I said I would have Peter draw the name of the winner but since he was still sleeping, I used to choose the winning number.  And the winner is:

Melinda of One Thankful Family!

Now the difficult job of choosing her prizes…will they be for adorable Crista or precious baby Addie???!!!

Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway.  As promised, I will be donating money to a charity in Guatemala in honor of my little man, Peter’s 2nd Forever Family Day.  We had 29 comments so I will be donating a dollar(not 50 cents as I originally said!) per comment!

Congratulations, Melinda!!!!

Remodeling AND Still Time to Get in on the Giveaway!

Okay, this remodeling project is really starting to get to me.  I am so tired of the dust and mess and disorganization!  I’m sure I’ll forget all of this when it’s all done but it’s taking FOREVER!!!  Every day that the contractor shows up I see the dollar signs and know this job has gotten way too expensive!  He’s doing a great job but is a perfectionist with the tile so it’s moving at a snail’s pace.  Here’s a sneak peak of what he’s up to in our master bath…

We expanded the shower size and added a bench.


I can’t wait to be done with all this mess!

Don’t forget to register for the giveaway which ends tonight!  Remember that I will donate money to a Guatemalan charity for each comment I receive!  There’s still time….
