Celebrating Brielle's "Gotcha Day!"

One year ago yesterday,
we set out very early in the day,
to bring home *something special*,
(pinching ourselves as we went ;-)
and praising our Lord for such a sweet blessing!
 
"This is the Lord's doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes!" 
Psalm 118:23 
 
 

Since we love "remembering" all the wonderful, awesome, amazing things
that the Lord has done for us,
we decided we should have a celebration to commemorate
this super special day in our family!
So we loaded everyone up,
and headed for our favorite Chinese food restaurant!
(The same one we celebrated at last year, the night before we got her! : -)
Then, we ended the night with special ice-cream treats!
 
"Remember the wonders He has done . . . "
Psalm 105:5a
This *something special* sign behind Brielle just happened to be at the cash register where we ordered our ice-cream treats!
We thought it was quite appropriate for this special occasion! : -)
 
But be sure to fear the LORD
and serve him faithfully with all your heart;
consider what great things he has done for you.
1 Samuel 12:24
Funny story about this picture . . .
I snapped it just after we scooped up Joseph's blizzard off of the table,
as he wanted to pose like Kyle did with it turned upside down.
The only problem with that was,
his was already a few minutes melted,
and as soon as he turned it over,
it all slid right out onto the table! : -(
 
"You are the God who performs miracles; 
you display your power among the peoples."
Psalm 77:14
 
One year ago . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . today! : -)
 

"I remember the days of long ago;
I meditate on all your works
and consider what your hands have done."
Psalm 143:5
