Happy Gotcha Day, Karsynn!!!!

One year ago today, we were handed the most wonderful blessing in our lives...Miss Karsynn. As I reflect on this past year with her, I'm reminded of God's goodness. It is through His grace that we are a happy family. She has blossomed into the most amazing child in just one short year. She amazes us daily with the new things she's doing, saying, and how cute her personality is. We are the luckiest people in the whole world. "Thank you God for putting this special girl in our lives. We are eternally thankful for Your goodness." Karsynn, thank you for making our lives complete. We love you more than you will ever be able to imagine. You are Mama and Daddy's special love!!!! Enjoy the Gotcha Day pictures from one year ago today!

Our 1st glimpse of our daughter!

The moment they handed her to me, my heart melted!!!

FINALLY...a family!

At that moment, she had her Daddy's heart forever!

The most amazing feeling in my whole life!

By that evening, it was as if she'd been with us her whole life.

Mama's first time diapering her cute!

She sleeps...

We're Home from FL

We got home yesterday from FL and we had a SUPER time. Karsynn and Kailee had so much fun. They were such good girls on the long trip. They would fight a little and love a litte...just like sisters would do. We enjoyed time on the beach and in the pool, we did lots of shopping, and went to visit Shamu at Sea World in Orlando. The look on Karsynn's face when she first saw the sand and ocean was priceless. She learned so many new words while on vacation, all of which related to the beach, of course. She's such an amazing girl. We are so blessed to call her our own. I love every single minute I share with her. I love being Karsynn's mommy. Enjoy the pics!

Ready for some FUN in the SUN!!

We are leaving for Daytona Beach at 2:00 A.M. and I can't wait. We will be gone until Sunday, so you won't hear from me until after that date. I'll be sure to post LOTS of pictures of Karsynn and Kailee having some FUN IN THE SUN! Please pray that the trip is uneventful and all goes well. Troy is very excited, too. We are stopping in Atlanta for lunch at the world famous restaurant, The Varsity. They serve over 5,000 hotdogs per day and over a ton of onion rings. He found out about it by watching a special on the Travel Channel. I'll let you know how it is! Until next time...

Our New Family Photos

The day we took these pictures, Karsynn fell first thing and would not stop crying. Overall, they turned out OK for it being such a tough day for the girl.

Just some thoughts...

My newest set of wheels!

My Daddy and I have so much fun!

She loves cows and horses!

In just 29 shorts days we will have had Karsynn for one full year. Where does the time go? Can someone please tell me? I simply cannot believe that it has been a year. On the other hand, it seems like she has been a part of our lives FOREVER. She has grown into the most beautiful little girl with the best personality and is so intelligent. God has truly blessed us. It seems that she changes everyday. Her newest word is "bird house." She and her daddy put one up on the fence and that's all she says when she sees it. It's so cute.

~Thank you God for blessing me with the perfect daughter. She is "just right" for our family.
