2014 has been the best year of all!
In March of this year, Brent and I had the opportunity to travel to Ireland and Scotland with our friend Annie.
Ireland is one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. We loved the history, the scenery, and the people!
Scotland was equally amazing! It was fun to see castles and kilts and hear bagpipes playing in the streets of Edinburgh.
In May of this year, we got the surprise of a lifetime! A month old, preemie, baby boy was up for adoption in Arizona.The spirit told us that he was ours and we adopted him sight unseen. We packed the dogs in the car and drove to Arizona a family of 2 and came back a family of 3!
We love this little boy so much! He is the perfect addition to our family!
He is growing up so fast!
We had the opportunity to finalize our adoption and be sealed to our Paddy in November of this year.
Life is pretty grand. Brent is working on finishing his bachelor degree in English and plans to pursue either a Master's Degree in Social Work or a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling. He plans to be a counselor. He is currently working for an app company called "my time."
M'Recia quit her day job to be with the baby. He's had numerous trips to Primary Children's for testing and surgeries and she's been able to be with him. He is doing very well. He had kidney surgery this year and his health is great!
M'Recia has started doing photography professional to keep her active and to help support the family. People have been very supportive and have kept her pretty busy. Her work can be viewed at www.photographybyapostrophe.com .
The dogs have been adjusting to life with a baby boss around. We fenced our yard earlier this year, so they've had a place to go run around when crying babies get on their nerves.
Hoping you have a magical Christmas and a wonderful 2015!
Brent, M'Recia, Patrick, Beast and Belle
