Gotcha Day 2016

This is how my day ended. 
It was 11 and she waited up for me to come home from a meeting. 
Of course she did.



I used to be, sadly, frustrated by this sort of thing.
And sadly, sometimes I still am.
Because days around here can be very long.
And yesterday was one of those long days....
but in a good way.


It was Gotcha day. 
Very probably my favorite day of the year.
Even more so than Christmas.
And if you know me that's saying something big


This girl.
She has my heart all twisted sometimes.
She's so beautiful.
And kind.
Which matters most, I think.


And she totally rocks the Chucks.
Rocks them. 


Pretty boy.
It's a good thing too.
Thats all all I'll say about that.


No really, it's a love worth fighting for.
A love given to me from the Lord.
Never easy.
As with some, it will never be.



I mean really?
Can a little person be any cuter?
Or more terrific?
She did just throw a MAJOR tantrum before this....
something about having to share her Bahama Bucks. 
The shirt is a good reminder for me. :)


These two.
Best friends.
Melt my heart.


They all do, really.


This was a massive photobomb fail on Koen's part.
So funny.


Being the oldest brother of this crazy train isn't always easy.
He wears it well though, I think.


 

They've been best buds since three years ago.
Having your best friend become your brother.
Only God can do that.
Amazing.


I think this pix sums up our day and my reality on a daily basis.
Prayers appreciated
.
Ha!
Kidding...
 well sort of.
