Cute Videos





She was in her own little world here.
I took a picture......









And this was the response I got!!! TOO CUTE

This is her silly eating manners. She will look at you and grunt when she is ready to eat the next bite if you are not fast enough for her. I do have to work on my feeding skills. It does look like half of the jar she was wearing instead of eating!

Taiwan bound!

We should be heading to Taiwan in about three weeks. I haven't decided if I am going to open up the wordpress blog for general viewing, so if you want to follow along as we travel and meet our girl you will need the password. It is has not changed, but if you are commenting on this blog because you cannot get to the other one, you might want the password! Just tell me who you are and how you know me and I will more than likely share the password!

We are going to Taiwan!

A Letter to our Pets

Dear Dogs and Cats:

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food.
Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.
The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Racing me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.
I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort, however. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out on the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.
For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom! If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge in an attempt to open the door. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years - canine/feline attendance is not required.
The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

Finally, in fairness, dear pets, I have posted the following message on the front door:

TO ALL NON-PET OWNERS WHO VISIT AND LIKE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT OUR PETS:
(1) They live here. You don't.
(2) If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it 'fur'-niture.
(3) I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
(4) To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons/daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly.

Remember, dogs and cats are better than kids because they
(1) eat less,
(2) don't ask for money all the time,
(3) are easier to train,
(4) normally come when called,
(5) never ask to drive the car,
(6) don't hang out with drug-using people
(7) don't smoke or drink,
(8) don't want to wear your clothes,
(9) don't have to buy the latest fashions,
(10) don't need a gazillion dollars for college and
(11) if they get pregnant, you can sell their children


He, He, He, thought everyone could use a laugh!

Our little joyful plum







I know I have a lot of readers that have not asked for the password to the wordpress blog. We have decided to let everyone know about the referral of our daughter from Taiwan. She is an absolute doll. She is five months old and we expect to travel in about three months or so to bring her home. God has been good to us! I am happy to introduce to you Kaylee Anne-Marie McCulley. We will be withdrawing from the Vietnam program and from Children's Hope International. Right now I am keeping certain information protected on the other blog, but when we travel, we will be happy to share our journey with everyone. She is an absolute answer to prayer as we were called on Christmas Day with her referral. We are busy getting everything ready and our paperwork is already being translated in Taiwan. This is going to be an exciting journey for us!

Faith is...

not believing that God can, but knowing that He will. He spoke it, He planned it and He has finally brought it to pass!
