Pool time fun

It may not be super warm here in Phoenix, but the kids don't care! They are still spending hours in the heated pool.

It is suppose to get warmer as the week goes on. And all I can say is... there is no snow.

It is always such a reprieve from normal life to get away. None of the regular little tasks hanging over your head, just relaxing and doing what you want to do. Including sleep!

Tonight is New Year's Eve and tomorrow a new day. A new year. I am excited to see what 2013 will bring to our family.

Most of all I am praying we can settle in as a family of nine. Find joy in the little things. Enjoy being with each other and watching each other grow. Seeing where God will lead us as a family, and for me more specifically, where God will take Spirit of Adoption Alberta this year.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Have been watching for some pool pics - living vicariously. I'm with you on the 'at least there's no snow'. At least we've had some reprieve from the sub zero temps so that makes it a bit more bearable. Have a great time. Happy 2013!

Wishing you and your family a very blessed New Year!
