Hurricane Fay is on the way, and a playing Princess

EDITED: Everyone pretty much knows SIG.....Please keep her in your prayers tonight as her husband Rich has suffured a heart attack. I would link her blog but it is Private and so The more I find out I will let you know. Thank you for praying for Sig and her Husband and there 7 precious kids.

First and foremost we are preparing here for a Hurricane. It is moving off the coast of Cuba and up into the Gulf and will make landfall sometime Tuesday on the west side of Florida. Two bad things a west side storm is the Tornadoes produce on the East of it...and They are predicting it to cut right through Polk county....Well we happen to live in Polk County, So yeah for us.....

If you enlarge this you will see the line in the middle, Well that runs straight through us!

And now my playing princess...Every now & then I put toys away because they aren't being played with and then a couple months later I pull them out and it's like she got a new toy.
This is a set of blocks, I pulled them out Friday and she played with them for hours!

She was in too deep of a concentration to turn around....So you get her backside

Which is still A~D~O~R~A~B~L~E

And also we received our Completed Home study today, It will be faxed to the Agency today and hopefully by the end of the week we can be on the list to be picked...We are so excited. I also reed a book by Micheal Dorris called A Broken Cord. Since we are willing to accept a FAE(fetal alcohol exposure) Infant they required us to read this book. It is a really good book and I don't like to read. But I loved this book. It gave me a whole new perspective on what to expect!!!!

EDITED to ADD: Please click HERE and check out the great bargains I have listed!!!
Well Sunday my son which is almost 15 came to stay with us for a few days before he goes back to school. So Sunday Madisyn's brother came over, Her rails came in for her big girl bed so Sunday she took a nap in her Big girl Bed, Then she slept in it for the past 3 night nap and bedtime. So we are very proud of her....Her crib is now took down, and she is officially a toddler.
She has loving her brother being here but we are sad that he went back home today. So we are back to me and madisyn. Here are some pics of our busy week.

Madisyn's first nap in the bed.....

Another happy girl in her bed....Notice her animals/dolls she has to sleep with them everynight!

Madisyn and Austin...14 & 2

She loves her brother & I can't wait to see her being a BIG sister

Look at that beautiful face...Pardon the stuff in her teeth, I'm not sure what it is

And I love everyone's comments on a name...Cameo & Muriel the baby being a newborn he probally will not be named when he is born....So that is why we are choosing a name. I love everyone's suggestions but we have come up with our own name and his name will be:

Anthony Brycen Reaver "Bryce" for short

Legacy of an Adopted Child

Once there were two women who never knew each other, One you do not remember, the other you call Mother,Two different lives shaped to make you one,One became your guiding star, the other became your sun,The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it,The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it,One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name,One gave you a talent, the other gave you aim,One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears,One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears,One made an adoption plan, that was all that she could do,The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you. Now, which of these two women, Are you the product of?Both, my darling, Both, Just two different types of love.---- Unknown
