Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


Wow, You Guys!

Impatient bunch, you are!  As much as I'd love to adopt another child again, that is not in the plans.  God will have to speak to our whole family in a mighty way.  Our quiver is full...our lives are busy.  My heart is toward the children who do not have families, and I will continue to pray for them all, cheer and encourage other adopting families, and be of assistance when I'm needed.  

Jolene, I'm shocked that you go to the last page of a book!  Oh, shame!

Sara had the right idea.  So, now I'll introduce our new addition...

 Moxie, born 7/22/2010

We have been waiting for a few weeks to bring this little girl home.  Jack has been wanting a puppy for a very long time.  We researched the various breeds, and Jack decided on a Chocolate Lab.  We found a local breeder, and waited for today.

We arrived at the kennel and I saw this sweet puppy.  I wanted a White Lab, but, hey, this was not my choice, it was Jack's.

How in the world do you choose when they are all so sweet and cuddly and happy and playful and stinky and fun?  

Easy.  Jack picked the cleanest one.  Good job, Jack!

Moxie is our first puppy as a family together.  We got Millie when she was a year old, so the children did not have the puppy "experience".  Jordan is just as excited as the other children.  Sshhh.  I even heard Seth going outside to check on her numerous time while she was sleeping.  Millie is not too happy about Moxie.  She runs away from her, but Moxie loves to be near Millie. 

Millie, enduring Moxie for a full 5 minutes.

Sorry to disappoint a bunch of you.  I wish we were in a situation to adopt a little boy around 8 years old, but that does not look like God's plan for us right now.  I know Jack would really like to do that.  I cannot imagine another boy running around here, and yet...I can.

8 kind words:

Football and Fried Rice

Oh, honey.

You DID adopt again!!

I would "warn you" about how REALLY full your quiver is going to be now - but you already now, cause of Millie!

Moxie is DARLING!!!!! Kind of tempting me - making me wonder if I could "do it again".....



Awww....Moxie is cute, cute! We had a chocolate lab....for a weekend. LONG STORY! And we actually had a black lab too for a long time! :) Looks like a sweet one for some family fun!

Jolene and Dan Powell

Yay!!!! What a cutie! I've had black and yellow labs, and that little chocolate baby is going to be a great, loyal family pet.



Oh Miss Moxie - I am in love with you! Chocolate labs are the best - I'm a proud aunt to my sister's 105 lb Harley who is her 3rd chocolate (Brutus & Rocky are no longer with us). Congrats on your....I mean Jack's new baby!


What a sweet little puppy! Lab pups are the best! We had one when our older children were young. We still miss our "Ellie"! Congrats on the new addition!

Our family:

So cute!!


ahhhh shes adorable! We have a yellow lab, he's actually white, and he's ten now...gosh how i love that dog. they are such great famiy dogs, enjoy!


Oh I'm so happy that I missed the post before this one. I would have been going crazy with everybody else. Moxie is soooo cute! She looks so much like our doggie (our 'first born') that we had many years ago.
Shshh don't tell Joel B. He has always wanted a puppy. I tell the kids all the time, "Yes, you can have a puppy...when you get married."
You shouldn't have told me about desiring an 8 year old boy. Hmmmm :)
