Ian’s Awesome Highlights!

The first several months of 2012 will be looked back upon as one of my favorite times in Ian’s life.  He has participated in tons of cool stuff and had a blast while doing it.  It has been great time of deepening friendships, finding out what he is good at, and learning to enjoy just […]

Easter 2012

Ok, I am super behind on blogging because life has been busy with lots of fun things and good times.  So now it is time to play catch up starting with Easter.  Elize and I spent several nights leading up to Good Friday and Easter Sunday reading children’s Bible books about this miraculous event.  Let me […]

Memorable Conversations

I am often afraid that 10 years from now (realistically more like one week from now) I will look back and not be able to recall any memorable conversations I have shared with my kiddos.  I have told myself several times to record their words down on paper so as not to forget.  My blog […]

A Christmas Jingle

This post is a tribute to one of my kiddos favorite Christmas songs, “The Twelve Days of Christmas!”  Plus, it is a fun recap of how the Mac family spent the Christmas holiday!  Enjoy! On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me ONE beautifully decorated Christmas tree. On the second day of […]

Family Pictures

Per the request of Mimi the entire Esser gang spent an afternoon smiling and posing for new family pictures.  Why is taking pictures such a difficult process?  It seems impossible to get everyone smiling, all eyes open, facing the camera, and looking sort of natural.  When in reality it feels very unnatural, the sun is […]

Thankful Hearts

Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is now quickly approaching! I wanted to recap just a few highlights that have taken place for the McAveney family.  For many family and friends we have shared with you our new journey to foster/adopt.  On November 18th, following a year of classes, a home study, and lots […]

Halloween Costumes

The Costumes.  For me that is really what Halloween is all about:  seeing my cute kiddos in their costumes.  My kiddos would probably say the same thing–their costumes.  They enjoy dressing up and of course the candy too!  Don’t really celebrate the holiday or make a big deal over it.  Love the outreach event our […]

Soccer, Softball, and Saturdays

This fall I have had the pleasure of watching my two big kiddos try something new.  Ian has been playing soccer for the first time with one of his good buds.  We are so thankful to be introduced to this team and awesome coach.  I have been impressed with Ian’s positive, happy attitude at practice […]

My Man is Forty!!

Yep, you heard it right Tim turned the big 4-0!  I can hardly believe he celebrated his fortieth birthday.  It seems like yesterday I met this handsome twenty-seven year old who stole my heart with his kindness and passion for life.  From the very minute we met I was impressed with his heart for others.  Tim […]

School Stats

The Mac family officially has all three kiddos attending school this year.  Wow, how can this be?  At times it seems like just yesterday they each were born. How quickly time has passed and now we have entered a new phase of life–the school years. Check out the stats below and see for yourself about […]
