adoption: think about it!

I know most people that read our blog probably aren't in the life stage of adopting children, but hey thats ok. there are thousands of children in texas that need permanent adoptive homes. i used to be the caseworker for several wonderful kiddos that need homes! feel free to visit http://www.dfps.state.tx.us/Adoption_and_Foster_Care/ to scan through the Texas Adoption Resource Exchange for foster kiddos around the state that need homes. Even if you don't want to adopt, be aware of the need...so you can share it with others who might be interested. I am writing on this subject because three sweet children were on the tv show titled "A child to love" and I wanted to share it with you guys. Please visit http://www.the33tv.com/pages/achildtolove to go to the right and click on 9/15: Makayla, Kindall and Randall.

There are thousands of other kids just like Makayla, Randall, and Kindall that need homes!

weddings and enchiladas

...that's what we have been up to lately. Jason was in his buddy John's wedding this weekend, which was really fun! Jason, John, and Clay (another groomsman below) have been long time friends at Baylor so it was fun for them to get together. And I got to hang with Clay's wife, Monique, which was a bonus! We are looking forward to getting to hang with John and Meredith since they are going to be living in Dallas once they get back from the honeymoon!

Also, since it's  the beginning of school and I'm not working I've had some down time to cook, which I love. I have been experimenting with new things and it's been fun. I am realizing how much I like to cook when its not a stressful task I feel like I have to do when I get home from work. I made some chicken, corn, and spinach enchiladas this last week and they were tasty! Bon appetit!
