Smirk! i heart faces

Smirk: A smirk refers to a smile evoking insolence, scorn, or offensive smugness.
The i heart faces challenge is "Smirk"...and my little guy Jack Jack has it perfected.  This shot was from just last weekend at Cheese Days.  Of course, that cheese head cap that is helping him feel "smirky".

Cheese Days hits Monroe!

Cheese Days 2010
Every other year the city of Monroe stops everything to celebrate our love of Cheese.  Yep, I live in a pretty great place!  And as you can see we got into the spirit of things this year!  The boys in their Cheese head hats and Cheese Days shirts, while Tessa sported a Cheese Days shirt and tutu. Jud and Drew wore their Laderhosen (spell check please) from their Dad's childhood and I wore their Grandma's traditional German dress.  Of course, the attire is a total rebellion against all fashion sense, but it is fun.  And just like "When in Rome"...wear else could you actually get away with this!?

To top it off, my brother's family came to enjoy the festivities with us.  So, it was a weekend of play, cheese curds, parades and of course, there was always yodeling in the background.

a year ago...

A year ago...

we received the call that we had the referral for our sweet girl.

we laid our eyes on her beautiful face for the first time.

our hearts over flowed with joy a year ago a world away from our sweet girl.


I sang a song, gave her kisses and rocked her to sleep.  happy. safe. loved.

We were all ready for school to start back up....even if the boys couldn't admit it.  They were excited.  And honestly, I was just ready!
