Building Families Through The Miracle Of Adoption

Another "favorite" to add to Miss Magic's list...The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music - 45th Anniversary Edition
Halle-Grace just loves Julie Andrews...period! The Sound of Music came on TV the night after Christmas and she was GLUED! Jason & I wondered if she would notice "Mary Poppins" and she sure did!!! She said, "hey, it's Mary Poppins with blonde hair." She's a smart cookie! Both the Sound of Music & Mary Poppins were filmed 45 years ago! Now, she has both movies to watch!

Little Angel Performance

Tomorrow night Halle-Grace's "Little Angel" choir will be singing at church...however, Little Miss Magic will not be able to attend. She has been under the weather :( She went to the doctor on Friday as soon as I noticed the first cough that didn't sound quite right. Dr. Patti gave her a lot of TLC, stickers, and some medication to make all of the yucky go away. She has ran a fever all day and we have enjoyed hanging around the house and watching movies. I thank God that Halle-Grace is a healthy little girl. Colds, flu bugs, croup, etc are expected along the way, but overall she is a healthy girl and I thank God every day for the gift of health!

Just look at how she has grown! Still can't believe she's 3 years old and a WHOPPING 23 lbs! haha!
These photos were taken just before she celebrated her 1st Birthday

Dancing For Santa!

 Halle-Grace LOVED Santa!!! She talked to him for a LONG time. I overheard her say something about Mary Poppins and she showed him her earrings and checked out his ears and his nose and commented on the size...children say the funniest things!!! She visited with Santa immediately after her dance performance.
 Her entire dance studio at Step-N-Out danced for Santa's arrival. Halle-Grace started dancing before the music started and she LOVES a crowd! Such a show off, simply adorable and a complete HAM!

Halle-Grace is 3 years old! Happy Birthday Little Miss Magic and Happy National Adoption Day!

What a busy few days we have had. Busy, yet SO blessed! We attended the National Council For Adoption's 30th Anniversary Bow Tie & Pearls Gala in Washington, DC to celebrate the miracle of Adoption.  

We celebrated Miss Magic's 3rd birthday and presented her with pearl earrings from the Gala's Chairman
(look closely and you can see her new pearls)
AND, today is National Adoption Day!!!

Later today, Halle-Grace will be dancing for the arrival of Santa at the mall with her dance class...lots of photos to follow! HAPPY NATIONAL ADOPTION DAY!!!
