Happy Adoption Day, Kennedy!

Adoption Day, September 24, 2004
September 24, 2008

Although we've had Kennedy from the time she was 2 days old, Kennedy's adoption was final on September 24, 2004. Every year we celebrate this very special day, Adoption Day, just like we do her birthday.
Kennedy asked for a Hannah Montana party. After pigs in a blanket for dinner, she opened her presents and then we had banana split waffle bowls for desert. To celebrate for the party, we had Hannah Montana plates, cups, napkins, tambourines, ring pops and microphone headsets!
Kennedy got a Barbie Peek-A-Boo from Jackson and Chandler Grace, a Hannah Montana wig, flavored lip gloss, and a Bratz Chloe's Room from Daddy and Mama, and Gigi sent an outfit!
She had calls from Gigi, Kyle, Katy and Grandma!
This is such a wonderful day for Kennedy, well, probably because she gets presents, but for me and Jordan as well. This was the day that it became legal what we already knew in our hearts to be true and believed God's plan to be: that Kennedy was our daughter and we were her parents.

The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
Psalm 118:23

So sweet! I LOVE the pictures of the new "hair"! I know that she keeps you laughing! I hope that school is going a little smoother for all of you. Beckham seems to be settling in. Someday we'll laugh at their antics!
