Eight years ago today we were in Vinh, Vietnam adopting the most perfect little boy in the world. His name at the time was Loc Trung Nguyen. We have all grown to love him as Liem Allen Taylor. People always tell you that time flies, and I don't think you can truly comprehend that concept until you have kids. The past 8 years of our lives have been so rewarding. We have done nothing to deserve either of our beautiful children, but God has blessed us with them, and for that we are forever thankful. I wish the world could know Liem, he is so amazing and has impacted so many people. He is honest, brilliant, beautiful, compassionate, funny, athletic, animated, crazy wild, "jabber-jaws", words can't even describe how special he is. He is always loving on Lyla and helping take care of her. He thinks she is wonderful and loves her today as much as he did the day we got her (11 months ago today)!! He loves to be with people, young or old either way. He prefers to play with older kids because at times he thinks he is one of them! He is wise beyond his years. Liem, I love you so much, and I'm so thankful for God's perfect timing that brought you to our family!

"SNOW" Day

Today was our first "snow day" in Springdale. It snowed a little more than an inch here, but the kids were out of school! Lucky for me, I got to stay home with them!! It was bitterly cold, so we didn't stay outside for too long, but long enough for a few snow angels and tiny snowmen!
