Early Riser

This is my early riser.  I am convinced that as soon as she as much as rolls over one time her feet hit the floor and she runs down the stairs.  We snuggle and talk until the boys get up or we get hungry, whichever happens first.  If we are snuggling and she hears the boys about to make their entrance into the kitchen she groans as if she is annoyed and makes sure that she firmly secures her place in my lap because she knows she is about to have to share. :)  I love my morning girly time with her!

Debbie Friar, Please Come to The Jewelery Counter...

Mom came for a visit.  We were SO glad to have her spend time with us at home.  We got a large snow so she got to enjoy that while she was here.  We also decorated a gingerbread house and made cookies.  Levi got so into the decorating that he decorated his toe!  :)

We made a trip to Wal-Mart and mom took the kids on an all out tour of the toy section while I got groceries.  I TOLD her to wait for me in the toy section but she was no where to be found so I had to have her paged- TWICE!  Gotta love that woman!  We laughed so hard.  Love you Mom!

With reverent praise and submission, we announce once more that we are officially in the process of waiting for another Steele baby.  We submitted another adoption application with Holt International adoption agency 1 week ago, so we are looking forward  to welcoming a little girl.  Naomi has already affectionately named her Rachel.

It's impossible that God won't bring glory to himself through our fourth child, just like he has with the first three.  Praise Him.

Little pumpkin was super excited when big brother and sister rushed to get their snow gear on when the flurries began to stream down.  He was certain that he wanted to go too!  He giggled as I put his hands in mittens and held out the snow bibs for him to step into.  His laugh was totally contagious!  He was even more tickled by the boots and then he waddled all over the house.  It was all fun and games until he actually went out to see the white stuff.  He was scared!  He wanted no part of that weirdness!  All dressed up and no where to go...he watched happily from the glass door while eating his blueberries.  Maybe we will try again tomorrow. 

Oh how I love seeing all of these things that he has never seen through his eyes!  Such joy, praise the Lord!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I had to post these pics of Levi at his first Thanksgiving and seeing his first snow with Cousin Miriam. It was a most blessed time for all of us at the Steele household!
