Family Day! 10 Years

Off to deliver diapers, wipes and formula to babies in need
LG decorated our ice cream bar for us.

There are no words...she took full advantage of this special day to pile up her bowl with toppings.
Have you ever tried to play Twister with a 70 lb Golden Retriever in the mix?
We each took turns taking one another on. I must say, Matt came out the victor most often.  May I also just say, that while you may not feel your age, play Twister and it will certainly put things into perspective for you. ha! ha!

It wouldn't be family day without a picture that includes Molly according to Lily Grace.

We celebrated our Family Day anniversary today.  10 years ago today, Gracie was placed in our arms and we became a family.  
She is one of the greatest blessings we have ever received.  She is a testament to prayers answered.  Our family is is a testament to God's mercy and grace.  
We've had a wonderful day!  Matt took off work, Gracie stayed home from school and we spent the day together having fun and enjoying one another. We started our day at morning mass and being reminded that when God answers our prayers, whatever they may be, that we do take rest, but instead take action and share His love and what He has done for us with others. God is most certainly good and loving! Always!!
We then went shopping for babies in need and delivered cases of diapers, wipes and formula to Catholic Charities in hopes of helping other babies.  
After making our delivery, we enjoyed lunch out and spent the afternoon at home playing games and laughing.  At the request of Gracie Cakes, we also enjoyed an ice cream bar.  
Ten years has certainly flown by, but it has left us with a ton of special memories and above all hearts filled with love and peace.  Thanks be to God!
