My baby isn't a baby anymore. Sniff Sniff...

One day you look up and that baby face is gone and replaced with the face of a little girl.

It has been too long....

I want to start out by apologizing for not posting in so long. I didn't want to be one of those moms that stopped posting after the adoption but that is what eventually happened. I also want to be very honest and tell you that I will still not be posting regularly due to a hectic schedule but I will try when time allows.

So much has happened since I posted last. Ayana is looking more like a little girl instead of a baby, Savannah looks more like a women and not a little girl! My hubby has been in the hospital 3 times in the last 60 days and just had a quadruple bypass 4 weeks ago. Things have been crazy to say the least. Thank the Lord that Rick is on his way to better health now.

Savannah started high school, which totally blows my mind. She went to her first Homecoming last weekend. She looked so beautiful! She went with a big group of friends instead of a date. (Thank goodness! :) She had a great time. She is becoming such an amazing young women with opinions and self confidence. She loves the Lord and I couldn't be more proud. Below is pictures of the BIG night....She lost weight before that week so her dress was about to fall off. They have been conditioning in cheer and running a lot but we didn't have time to alter the dress. It still worked out fine.

Ayana is getting so big and she is so smart! I can't believe how much she knows and talks. She can hold a regular conversation. She is in an awnry stage where she likes to have her way so we are working through that. She is also very attached now and doesn't like it at all when mommy or daddy goes to work. Rick and I bought her the cutest little kitchen to play with. When I opened the box, there was soooo many pieces and 18 pages of instructions. UGHH!!! We got through it and the end result was a hit! She LOVES it! She is also a true Texan now because she owns a pair of cowboy boots! Oh yeah!!!

Ayana said she was talking (on the phone in the picture above) to PAPA (Grandpa Dave)...
Sorry Mom.

I miss talking to everyone in BLOGLAND! I feel so out of touch. For those that want to chat more often, please find me on FACEBOOK where I post more often. (there is a facebook button on the side of my blog) Hope to talk to you soon!

Easter at the Boyd house...

Ok, Ok, I know that I haven't posted in a while. I have been so busy at work and when I have time off I have been spending time with the kids and have not had enough time. I still hope to blog about our missions trip to Ethiopia. I have amazing photos but I have so many to sort through so it will take some time.

In the meantime....Here us a few photos of my favorite girls on Easter.
