Our first family pic as an offical family!

Thanks to an AWESOME photographer here is our first family pic as an official family. There are many more pics to come, but I wanted to show it off since I love it so much! Too much fun!

officially a Carroll!!!

Well after much stress, and 19 months of back and forth, and in and out of court, it is official, We got Abby, (yes, I am taking that from the musical Annie) Abby is ours forever, She became ours at 9:47 this morning when judge Hart signed the adoption papers. No more court dates, no more worries about certain people coming back into her life. She is now an official member of this wild and crazy family! This happened at a perfect time, what a wonderful thing to be truly gratful for at this holiday season! Talk about counting our blessings. Thanks to all of you who have helped us, who have stood by us, who have prayed for us. We love you all, and we have certainly felt the love from you. THANK YOU!!! And now for the big sigh of relief..... ahhhhhhhh!

The fairy tale ballet!

Alli entered a coloring contest at school to try to win a ticket to go to a ballet, and what do you know... she won! So this weekend we dressed up, and when I say we, I mean she dressed up like a princess and we went to the ball! Here she is by the picture she colored, (its the one right above her head)
And here we are waiting for the ballet to start!
All dressed up waiting to go!

Alli and sam dressed up so cute like the princesses the are!

Alli and sam with one of the dancers! What a fun night out. We got to go to a little "before" party where the girls had little snacks and got to meet the dancers and get autographs. the had a blast, what a night to remember!
