Easter 2010:

We had a great Easter this year.  Maddie and AJ are finally at the age when they are really starting to understand the meaning of Easter.  Maddie especially was able to have some really sweet conversations with us in regards to Jesus life, death, and resurrection.  The past few years we used Noel Piper’s Easter ideas found in her book Treasuring God in Our Traditions. (Which is an excellent book!)  The Resurrection Tree and the re-enactment of the Easter story was a lot of fun with the kids this year…and they seemed to remember what a lot of the Easter symbols mean.  We also dyed Easter Eggs and each year gets less and less messy–whew!  I can imagine a day where there is no spilled dye.  🙂  The Easter Sunday meal was once again at our place and we enjoyed the company of our dear family.  God has been so good to us.

Selah’s Adoption Day:

Oh happy day! We had a most wonderful and meaningful day yesterday as we celebrated the finalization of our adoption of Selah!  This was a day long in coming for us but was worth every moment of waiting!  It was as though our girly knew exactly what the day was about–she was happy and laughing and clapping and smiling the ENTIRE day–even without a nap! I think our Selah loves being the center of attention 🙂  She was also very affectionate and loving towards all of her family and friends yesterday–randomly giving kisses and smiles to her honored guests!  We couldn’t have imagined a better day–God indeed exceeded every expectation.  Here are some pictures of our day.  I wish I would have remembered to take more pictures!  Thank you to everyone who prayed on our behalf, thought of us, encouraged us, and celebrated with us and with our sweet girly.  Hurray for Selah Marie Louisa Ross!

    And, AJ looks like a little man!!!! He looks more and more like a miniature Ben! It’s crazy.
