toads, veggies, school, and sleeping

Behold---the old beverage cooler that used to hold "adult beverages" for several people now contains toads, crickets, and grass!!! Yep you guessed it...the youngest, M, as we were tearing down the rest of the plants in the garden was catching everything she could find.

This is Zeus walking around with bird feathers on his nose as he was vacuuming up the bird food...lol

here are the contents of the beverage cooler...

see anything that doesn't belong?

our wonderful 11 punkins from our one plant that took over the neighbor's yard.

chili was sleeping leaning on kyle's head...

enough of the pics. on to everything else. we now have two kiddies!! woot woot!!! it is awesome. it is amazing how fast the heart can love. she is totally different thatn b, but the same. they get along wonderfully. i'm hooked. wish we had room for sooo many more.

the garden is all done except for 2 jalapeno plants, 1 green pepper plant, and 1/2 of the cherry tomato plant. only a little sad it's over this time.

can you believe it, i got to register kids for school!! woot, woot!! i got to go school shopping!! it was an amazing feeling. they said it was like Christmas. it is such an amazing feeling. i love having them here. i love the smiles, the hugs, and i can't even begin to describe the feeling of being called "mom." it is indescribable. brings tears to my eyes a lot. and i can only thank God for the gifts. and His plan.

we just got back from swimming at aunt carla's. i love swimming. and there was only 8 of us in the pool tonight!! we have all of tonda's kiddies tonight also. i want this many kids all the time!!!!!!!!!! so does kyle. actually we want 8-10.

we have had something going on every night this week and up until wednesday of next week we have something going on!! busy, busy!!

k, well, best get off here. i am not spending near as much time on this thing as i used too!! hope you all have a great, wonderful, fantastic, loving night.

Love the toads! I can not believe that she TOUCHES them! UGH! I am going to have to talk to M! How creepy!

I can't believe your garden is spent already! I still have tons going on. I guess maybe the is the difference between MG and not? Yours probably all grew bigger earlier and mine is taking its SWEET ANNOYING TIME!

Have a great day!

Gods plan is soo amazing! Congratulations on your beautiful "Mom" at school experience.

Your pictures are so fantastic! I can't wait until next year to have pumpkins, tomatoes, and all the yummy stuff inbetween.

You are one blessed "mom"

May God bless you for what you are doing. I know it is hard. Not from your side of the fence, but from what I remember putting fosters through. There are a few I would really like to go back and thank, if I could. So, I will have to settle for thanking you. :)
