Old pictures- take 3

Here are the last of the old pictures for you:
This is Arianna at her party for becoming an official US citizen- made extra special because she's with Grandpa and Grandma:

This was at Thanksgiving and Laura had changed Arianna's diaper- look at Laura's jeans- somehow Arianna pee'd all over her!

Nick 2 years ago at the beach:

Halle and Shaelyn hugging Grandpa:

Halle while we were still in Russia:

The first time I actually got to see and hold Halle:

The first time I actually got to see and hold Arianna:

Arianna with Grandma:

Nick with our first dog- Schnowsky:

Nick at our first house:

Halle had gotten a box of donuts and crawled behind a chair and was having her own little feast:

Hope you've enjoyed a little look back in time! I'd love to see some of your old pictures. It sure brought back good memories looking at all of these old shots.

Oh ho ho! I LOVED looking at these pictures! You are one BLESSED mother!

Laura needs some more practice in changing diapers, wouldn't you say? Ha! Ha! AND I loved the picture of Nick in your heels and nylons! SH! I won't tell him!

Thanks for posting all these pics.

You know how I have enjoyed this, but today you brought tears to my eyes. It was so nice to see those pictures of Mom. She loved her grandkids so much!

Love the pictures, especially that last one of Halle! I remember coming to your house once and you showing me how Halle could climb, I think up the bunk beds. I don't even think she was 2 yet! That girls got moxie!

Bonnie said...

These are so great !! I absolutely adore the two of you holding each of your girls for the first time. What a special moment to have captured on film !! I'm sure they must love those photos too !!

Nate and Brenda said...

LOVE those pictures!!!

It was good for me too to see your nick in high heels! LOL!!

I will have to try to pour through some of my pictures and scan some! What a great idea!!

Jennifer Partin said...

You are right Nick is going to kill you! I'm guessing by the look of the picture he must be a teenager now. Better keep this post under wraps!

I cannot even imagine the precious memories of what it must have felt like to know that these were children the Lord had already chosen for you through adoption. That one of you holding Arianna for the first time must be priceless! Thank you for sharing your photos!

How fun to look back in time. When we do just shows how fast time really does go. Kids are so wonderful!

Laura said...

Those were so fun to look at. It brought back a lot of memories. Although being peed on isn't usually a memory I like to relive...

I loved the pictures of Grandma too - she really did love her grandkids!

Thanks for posting those!

I cannot imagine the joy you felt when you met your daughters. What a journey. I hope to here about it all someday.

Yup, you might be in trouble for posting the picture of Nick, but is sure is sweet.

I was wondering if that was your mom. I'm guessing so by Mari and Laura's comments. Priceless, huh?

I really loved these posts. It's so fun to see your kids in the past.

SUPER FUN and I am in agreement that nick might be a LITTLE mad about that shot! hahahaha - LOVE the pictures of the girls when they are little - isn't it nice to be able to have those pictures and have gotten them home so small!?

julie said...

I LOVE the pics! Especially the baby ones of the girls and the high heels of Nick - I can't believe how white-blonde his hair was!!!
