the zoo

we're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo.
how about you, you, you.

you can come too, too, too.

we're going to the zoo.
friday we went to the zoo with my mom, sister, and her boys. i cannot wait till they are legally adopted so i can share pix with you, and show you just how ADORABLE they are! i love the way her oldest says, "tia denise pick me up," and then he comfortably settles into my embrace, letting his sweet little hands rest on my neck. he is so loving.

i love the way the babies eyes light up. oh, he is a sweet, happy boy!

i know i am just their tia (their "favorite tia" as i have taught them to refer to me), but i know i can say for the entire family that we are all BLESSED that God wrote them into our lives.
He is a good God!

me with my sister toni.


  1. Sounds like a great day!
    I wish I could come too, too, too....but we're hunkered down here trying to potty train....

    Denise, can I just say that your beautiful heart truly inspires me. I love how you weave God's goodness into everything you write about.
    So encouraging.

    Praying that the adoption goes through smoothly and quickly :)

    (Oh, and very sweet pic of you and your sister.)

  2. I can't wait to see pics of them someday! You and your sis are adorable! :)

  3. We are praying for you that everything goes off without a hitch!

    Your blog continues to be a daily inspiration for me.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
