We are proud to announce the adoption and sealing of Jennifer Kay Rich!
Jen played it cool through the whole proceedings by drinking her bottle and acting uninterested. Brandon could hardly contain the joy of FINALLY having a little sister. Rich and I of course were a little nervous (who wouldn't be)! And my parents were there cheering us on.
My parents, us and the Judge.
The Rich's and the Judge.
On Saturday we went to the Temple to be sealed for Time and Eternity. Jen was trying to take a nap when the workers brought her to us so she was a little groggy. Instead of handing her to her mom (which is what she wanted) she had to just hold my hand! Not interested! I want my Mom!
After it was over and we were looking in the mirrors. I was holding Jen, Rich was holding Brandon and Jen had her hand on Rich's arm (so sweet)! At that point she was very interested in what was going on! All the people, the chandelier and her family.
On Sunday her daddy gave her a blessing at church and we had a luncheon after at our house. It went wonderful!
I am really slow in posting this but Brandon turned 7 in February. He had his cousins sleep over and ate cake and popcorn all night. They watched movies and talked all night lol. We love you Brandon happy birthday!
We got a surprise this past weekend :) I was asked if we could foster a little girl for a couple of days and Friday morning we were asked if we wanted her forever and ever? YES!!!!!! We want her! What a silly question lol. She's two months old and cute as a button. Here are some pictures.
Christmas morning we told Brandon that we were going to Disneyland and Universal studios. He fell over - lol. Here are pics from Universal Studios. We were so cold we ended up buying jackets and scarfs for us to wear. burr! Rich and I loved the park....Brandon not so much.
This first pic is the back lot tour we went on. hmmm seems like a dino or ape got to it first.
Here are some famous cars.
War of the worlds Psycho - their house
Psycho - a lovely hotel that...well I wouldn't want to stay there.
and his little dog.
the globe thingy out front.
Our ride.... Brandon did not like this ride (Rich and I loved it). We were taking a tour of the back lot and this dinosour and King Kong attacked us.We wore 3-D glasses and were knocked around in the tour bus. Poor Rich even got spit on. lol
