Update On Our Wonderful Crazy Family!

Things have been so busy around our house lately. There are so many great things going on for us right now!!

Over the past several years our home has been open to helping some of the friends of my children. They have come from unsafe or unhappy homes or have just needed someone to give them a loving home to stay in until they got on their feet.

One of the wonderful young men we have taken in, Austin, graduated from high school recently. It has been a long road and we are very proud of him!

We also took in two wonderful young ladies. They are both pregnant now. One is due any day and the other is due middle of July. One is having a girl and the other a boy! I am very excited. I am going to be a Nana soon! 

These are my girls!!

Bekka is going to have a girl....Arkadia! Our little sweet girl is set to arrive any day. Bekka has been in pre-labor for several days now. Wednesday is her next doctor's visit. We are hoping they will induce so we can get things moving!

My other sweet girl..Kat.. is having a little boy. Kat and her fiance Seth are living with us right now. Their little man is going to be named Lincoln. We are going to call him Link....after the Legend of Zelda.  We did a fun photo shoot last week at one of the pretty local parks. Ron is such a great photographer.

I am so excited to be a Nana soon!!

And finally my wonderful son Wesley is working on getting his GED. He has had a rough 18 months, but he has met a great girl (Randi) and he's getting himself together. I am so proud of him!! He only has 1 more test to take and he will have his GED!

I have two foster daughters that I took in about 18 months ago. I took them in because they needed a safe loving home. Both of them are now pregnant. These are my first grandbabies!! I am so excited. The first one is due any day. As I am typing this my girl is timing her contractions. So I might be a Nana by the time you get done hopping!!
The second little guy is due in the middle of July. His mommy and daddy are both DC Comic, Batman fans. I hosted the baby shower in May. It was Batman themed. 

 I used my Cameo and found some Batman outlines. It was fun because I figured out how to trace with the software. This was a first for me.

One of the games we played was How big is Lincoln's Bat Cave. LOL!! 

 I decorated the back porch as will with lots of Batman symbols. 

I also made a stencil and got a crib. I sanded it and painted it black and added the Batman logo to the headboard and footboard!

We can not wait for our little man to join us and start using his Batman crib. 
Hope you all have a great weekend while I am on baby watch!! 

Up next is SARAH!!!
