We're adding to our family!

I am now publishing this for the second time! This time is no mistake!
I think I need to stay away from Facebook and Blogger when a special event is about to happen! Y'all don't tell me anything until after it's over!
OK when I originally typed this post something awful happened. As I went to hit save to draft Mackenzie hit my hand and I hit publish instead. Yes, leave it to me to spoil a special moment. You see I have my blog linked to network blogger. So when I hit publish it automatically post to Facebook. And because of my Karen's Kidz site, it post in more than 1 place. As I'm frantically trying to delete it from Facebook my son calls.  Yes son ... I published a blog post about an event that hasn't even happened yet! So within seconds of the posting I am trying to undo my terrible mistake! Trying to tell those who have liked the post already to keep quiet! I can't tell you how terrible I felt! He's already nervous! I really hope we can laugh about this one day! Better than the crying I'm doing right now! I don't think I can take much more excitement! But hey...I'm getting a new daughter!

Our youngest son just proposed to the love of his life! They have been friends for several years and finally listened to God's calling. I kind of knew his goose was cooked.You couldn't help but notice the big ole grin and dazed look on his face. Yes, he has been bit by that love bug! A cute one at that!

 Kayla has passed the sister test. Yes, all the girls love her! She fits right in with this crazy family!  You'd have to be brave to face this many girls and win their acceptance. I sure hope she knows what she's getting into!

Somehow my little guy grew up before my eyes. Now here he is almost 25, 6'2 and about to say "I do" to his love! It seems like yesterday I was teaching him to ride his bike and watching him play little league baseball. Now he's about to be this sweet girl's husband!

As our family grows I stand in awe of how we've made it this far. I look forward to the changes our little BIG family will have over the next few months as we embrace our new daughter. I pray that she knows what a special gift she is to our family. 

Kayla we love you!!!!!!   Welcome to the family!!!!!!!!!!!

So Jessica graduates from high school, our son is getting married, Kelley's 2nd foot surgery and Emily our daughter is having our first grandchild ... all before the end of the year!  Anyone know of a deserted island I can visit when all the excitement dies down?
