Saturday with Drew

Sam wanted to invited someone to his yball game Saturday.
Come to find out, he had Drew in mind.  And Jaelyn had a tourney so he got to spend the whole day with us!
We headed to Washinton for Joe's game at noon.
We ate and played at Gatti's after his game

Sam's first big jackpot

We visited the pet shop and got a lot of smiles and ideas on their next pet of choice.
Drew - fish
Sam - bunny
Joe - non really, poor guy is not really an animal man!
And then we went to Walmart, the toy section, the sport section, electronics, clothes, school section, but slushies from the snack bar was their favorite.
Boys just really are not shoppers, proven today.  Three girls could have wondered around Walmart with no time to spare before the start of Sam's game, but we zoomed thru and still had time to waste, ha!

Sam picked out basketbal socks at Dick's the other week.
He LOVES them.
Today he said...my socks are from Dick's they will make me good!

Sam and his friend Leighton from his team! I hope 
we watch these boys into the high school years!

We ended back at home and I made homemade cheeseburger macaroni corn
and fruit salad.  They gobbled it up and played.
Settled on checkers and connect four 

Drew and Sam's first game ended like this...a draw!

Morgan's Senior Night

Last night was Ms. Mo's senior night  2013 - where does the time go?
Love this girl and her sweet spirit.
On Thurs I go the honor of helping her set up her table..oh wait
 then the game was cancelled, so we set it up took a pic and took it all back down
so she could set it up herself on Friday...she did great!!  
It was also coaches vs. cancer game so they doctored up their uniforms
with duct tape!  So cool!

Mo and her parents, my brother Scott and Sis Chris

And Sister Sarah

And Sis Blake came home from college...joe was a little excited
{just a little}

The best part was that her cheer coach got her a life size version..wow!

And this is the part where I insert kick to behind because I came straight from work
without camera...boo.
But I still wanted to remember her last school song!
Love that energy

Senior pep band played on drums and really reved up the crowd it was neat!

Sam has started venturing away from us at home games...

He has a fun group of friends!

Joe was tucked with Blake, my sweet aunts, or with us for the whole game.
He and Libby are looking innocent here but I think they could tear a place up!!

And then Morgan got the be a flyer!!
Top Right!

Officially Grabers!

Today Darrin and Shannon completed the adoption of
Tyson Phillip
Shaylee Martha Jean
and these two joined Dryce Andrey
to make us proud Aunt and Uncle once again!

We met at the courthouse and it after the paperwork was in order the judge declared it official! 
We welcomed these two precious children into our hearts a year and a half ago in September,
but had to wait to show you their precious faces until today, when the courts declared it legal.
God has orchestrated so many details in this sweet story.

First order of business was inviting Tyson (and Shaylee) to ride with us, their official Aunt and Uncle!
Tyson has begged to ride in our van from church and other places and until today we
were not able to say yes.  We celebrated together today when I asked him and he said YES!
Dryce and cousin Andre rode home with grandma and grandpa, so Darrin and Shannon left with 0 kids, ha!

New shirts with GRABER on the back!

Dryce and cousin Andre

Shaylee and cousin Emma.

Oh how our hearts sing with JOY!
I cannot wait to share 1.5 years of picture memories with you.
