And Now It's March...

...and it's SNOWING! That just doesn't happen here. Yet, we are having a blizzard practically (okay, that might be a little bit of an exaggeration... but it is snowing REALLY hard.) I'm thinking no school tomorrow! Maybe we'll even get Tuesday off. Unlike most of the schools, we don't have to make up snow days, so that makes them even better! Booie is so excited... she loves the snow! Kate's face lit up at the sight of it, too, and she said "sowwww!"
March is our family's big birthday month! Starting with a special little someone who turns TWO on Friday! Can you guess who? She might just be one of those cuties in the adorable pink sweatpants who is pictured above. Then Will turns 18 on the 24th and I turn 16 on the 31st!
Last week, we had our state swim meet. We stayed the night and our meet was on Monday. It was very fun and everyone did very well. Our guys won, which was amazing because our school just moved to a new division. Our girls got 6th, but we all did really well. I was excited to make it to finals in the 100 breaststroke :)
Our two sweeties have been as sweet as ever. Cannot believe how blessed we are to have two completely adorable, sweet as can be, little girls. They make my heart full :)

And lastly... I have some very exciting news about my favorite place in the entire world (pictured above.) I cannot wait to share, but I want to wait until a few more details have been decided. (If you know, don't say anything!) I will tell you that it's not another adoption... atleast not yet.

snow?! it's 90 here today. send some of your snow over this way please!!

the girls look so precious. you really have me wondering what's up with you guys and China! :)

Kristi said...

I considered it a blizzard too ~ just silly us, we were driving home in it...
I'm excited to hear what your news about China is! Don't make us wait long!

So jealous!!! Down here in mid SC all we got was rain, and lots of it. I really wanted Abby Grace to experience snow but I guess our little dusting last month will have to do.

Catherine said...

Snow much fun! Hope you got the day of school! Wheee!

Congrats on your swim meet!

Oooo...your China post has me intrigued. Looking forward to hearing more!

Cute pictures! We were hoping for a little bit of snow here today too, but unfortunately just got stuck with some really cold weather! Can't wait to hear the news :)

Lexie said...

I am jealous of the snow as well! It was a whopping 93 degrees over here the other day! Uhhggg.

I am happy to be "in the know" :) Hahaha! I am excited for you!

Oh my goodness on the last part … OK, please share when you can!!!

We got some snow too over here but not nearly as much as you did! Way to go Emily on the swim meat; the breaststroke is my guys' favorite stroke too and honestly, they can both beat me at it!!!

Thank you too for your precious comment to S. I know someday all the sweet notes on the blog will remind her of how special she is to God, cleft lip and all!!!

I can't wait to hear the news!!! I am guessing it involves some sort of trip but I have no idea what. Just a guess!
