we're alive

i really am terrible at this blogging thing.
i admit to it. i know i am and i apologize. seriously, i do.
and i promise to at least try to get better...fair enough, right?
on to the stuff that matters
like the fact that jet lag, new baby, 8 people, school, and everything else and we're alive...and well!
ainsley is doing so amazingly well. words cannot describe how beautifully her adjustment is going...really they cannot. i am already writing a post about her that i will post soon. it is absolutely amazing beyond belief to see how GOD truly cares for us. amazing.
our first week home was rough. a lot of sleepless nights and sleep in school {yeah...} and a lot of prayers. but we made it and we are in a beautiful place because of it. this past week has been better for everyone.God love my precious mom who is with miss ainsley 24/7 {because she refuses anyone else} but everything is doing so well and she is bonding perfectly. we are truly pinching ourselves. we are so thankful for your continued prayers and thoughts for our family...they are so appreciated as we continue to settle into a new normal.
i really don't have many more words and will allow these pictures to do the rest.

because we were in China for Christmas we are celebrating today...How sweet it is to have her HOME.
I am off to open gifts, eat delicious food, and celebrate the birth of a savior..even if it is a month late...
Merry Christmas Y'all and Happy Sunday! ;)


  1. Oh my goodness. Your family is SO beautiful. The children are gorgeous. And they look very, very loved. : ) Heartwarming.

  2. ohhh so sweet! Merry Christmas!!!

  3. Happy late Christmas! What a beautiful family you have. Congratulations on your newest sibling, and God bless you all. I remember those early days after bringing home our girl. We were completely wiped out! I'll say a prayer for your guys right now.

    Heavenly Father, please bless this precious family. Give them the rest and encouragement that they need right now. You know their every need. Please use the people around them to bless them during this time. Please be with them all as they adjust and form bonds with each other. Amen!
