I love love love these photos of McKaylie...  They were taken on her 7th Birthday.  She just looks so happy in them.

The Adoption is FINAL!!

We went to the courthouse on July 12, 2011 and finalized the adoption of the newest member of our little family.  McKaylie ..  She has been such a blessing to our home.  We love her so much..
Here we are.  The first picture of our new family

This is everyone who came to the adoption.  McKaylie's little brother was adopted by Shannon, my sister.

After the adoption, Wendell (Roy's dad) treated us t0 lunch at Lee's Mongolian BBQ in Ogden...  YUM!!

The children got a monetary gift (to congratulate them) and we bought them a swimming pool.  They have been in it with the Stotts since we got it...  I think the only time they get out is to eat,sleep and use the restroom.  Ok, maybe not that bad, but close!!

I know I haven't updated my blog in many months.. and I am not even going to try to "catch up".  I''ll just try to do better...  LOL!!   I don't think anyone reads this blog anyway..

hugs, Carrie

Summer Time....

I can’t believe how fast summer is passing by. I often wonder why the winter months drag on and summer seems so short.

I love everything about summer. I like to walk outside and not worry if I have shoes on or not. I like to wake up to the neighbors lawn mower and children playing and laughing in their yards. The thing I love most about summer is getting to spend an unlimited amount of time with Tate. I enjoy our conversations and hearing about his dreams for the future.

This past weekend we celebrated the Fourth of July with family and friends.

Friday we went up the Shannon’s in Idaho. Tate loves playing with his cousins, even when there is a little drama. He was the only boy among four girls and they were playing Cops and Robbers and I guess, being a “robber” was the thing to be. They seemed to have figured it out because a little while later they were “playing house” which, I guess, was Tate’s idea.. Funny how kids can find resolutions so quickly and move on.
Later that night, we went up by the hospital to watch the Fireworks with the Stotts. A few of us walked over to CVO where the Shumans were celebrating with a company Bryan does business with. Tate had a wonderful time playing on the bounce toys, eating a snow cone, and playing with his cousins. We got back to the Stott’s just in time for the fireworks. I was too busy taking pictures with Bry to really enjoy what was going on in the sky. I did get a couple of shots on my phone to upload on FaceBook…

Saturday we went down to Roy’s parents where we had hot dogs, salads, and fun conversation. I love Roy’s family and Tate adores his cousins. We left just in time to see the fireworks from the different cities as we drove past them on the Freeway. It was fun to see all the bursts of sparkling light from Salt Lake to Ogden. All in all, it was a pretty good weekend.

I think I am getting old....

One of my Young Woman from my Ward was married on April 11th..... I remember staying up all night at girls camp laughing with her... I can't believe she is old enough to get married (ugh, I really need to work on getting over that, LOL). She gave me the honor of taking the pictures of this wonderful event... I was so happy to be a part of all the festivities....

Here are some of the photos:
