Mebbie Day 2013


Today was Mebbie Day. What's that, ya ask? Oh - that's just the day two years ago when this little cutie came to be with her family and the camp grew by one!


Our family picture was altered that day in a GREAT way!

I remember it like it was yesterday (maybe cuz I have watched this video 1,000,000 times)...


we had been praying SO hard and SO long for this girl. And then Laura walked off that escalator at the ATL airport and none of that super long wait mattered any more...

It's a super special day to us. And we celebrate it hard. The girls always get to pick where we head to have a celebration dinner...


Mebbie picked pizza at Mellow Mushroom. Her big sister approved.


This little girl was ear to ear smiling all day and night!


After the pizza - we headed home for jammies and ice cream to cap off the day.


Me thinks she likes it!


There was time for one more silly face before we all circled up and prayed HUGE prayers of thanks to God for making Mebbie - for building our family the way He did and for His undying love...

And then Mebbie dropped this little gem on us...

Mebbie... your big, big family loves you more than you can imagine girl... here's to a hundred more Mebbie Day celebrations!

What a beautiful prayer from your sweet girl. My 2 ET boys wanted to listen to it again and again. Tell Mebbie it inspired their prayer time tonight. How cool is that?!!
Thanks for sharing your family.
