trick or treat

our cute sock monkey had fun trick or treating....she could care less about the candy...she just enjoyed knocking on the door saying "trick or treat" "thank you" and off to the next house...hard to believe she's been with us over year and this is her 2nd year trick or treating....last year she had no clue what halloween was all about.... this year she knew all about halloween!

could she be any cuter

the perfect weather day for andrea sisler
a crisp breeze
not a cloud in the sky
sunshine rays all around and not 1 bead of sweat rolling down my face...gotta love that
laying in the grass and watching the bugs jump all around us
watching our cats & dogs run and romp
playing with my sweet angel emma lael (could she be any cuter...i don't think so ;0)
watching emma lael draw with chalk...she can write her first name and boy is she proud of herself
sitting quietly watching natalie lay on the grass with our neighbors eating a popsicle
hearing all the sounds that the world seems to bring but when were busy we don't hear them all...crickets...dogs barking....lawn mowers....the smell of fires being burnt

emma lael while at new day had a love for a certain scooter....this week while shopping we found the scooters just like the one's at new day....she picked out a pink one...she's had more fun riding it all this week....

i asked her to stick out her tongue for a picture she said "mama, that's not nice" i told her we were just being "silly" and it was okay for a few pictures...she's my rule follower ;-)

i hope each of you who read this post enjoyed your day....we sure did

Happy HOME Day

One year ago today we landed on good ole american soil after spending weeks in beautiful china, our daughter emma lael's home land.... we were home....emma lael was HOME.... HOME a place she call HOME from this day forward....i remembered our first night home emma lael and i slept in her room... i tucked her in her crib she feel fast asleep in HER room.....a room prepared especially for her....she woke up at 5 a.m. and our first full day at HOME began....thank you God for an amazing 1st year with our precious girl....still on this day....1 year later i pinch myself making sure this isn't a dream....ADOPTION has been a life changer for the sisler family....i pray emma lael knows how very much we love her today, tomorrow and FOREVER.
