Picture-takin’ fool

I snapped about a gazillion pictures of my day today in preparation for the MY DAY event on Friday. I’m hoping a bunch of you will play along and share a day in your life this week. Remember, you don’t have to take lots of pictures if you don’t want to. A written timeline of your day is just fine too. For the next three days my big kids are doing standardized testing so I won’t be around lots, but you might want to stop by and check out my Tuesday morning post on my Ethiopia adoption blog. 🙂


  1. Oh, congrats!! I thought maybe that was in the works after your hints last week. How fantastic! Best of luck for a smooth, fast process.

  2. Hi Mary–

    I’ve looked over your blog, and I’m sure I’m just missing it, but I can’t find your email.

    I wanted to ask you how much it costs to adopt? And how long does it take to get a child once you start the process?

  3. How awesome!!!! I’m so excited to follow along with this journey =)


  4. How great!!!! Congratulations!!! jealousy is rearing it’s ugly head again at my house!

  5. That is great! And-I cannot wait for Friday. If I can get my butt in gear I will participate!

  6. What wonderful news!!!!!! How I hope someday to have my own news like this to announce!

    I am thrilled for your family and for the two little ones who will become the newest Owlhavens. 🙂

  7. I’m so excited for you, Mary! I can’t believe, though, that I had to read the news online… what’s the deal with not telling your sister about this???

  8. Congratulations – I am just so excited for you! Good luck – we’ll keep you in our prayers!

  9. How exciting! I hoped that would be your big news. I know you’ll keep us posted with all the details, right???

    I’m going to try to do a day in my life this week. Depends on whether or not we get a baby between now and then… that would be an interesting day to choose. 🙂

  10. Is it for the whole week? I forgot (you can respond to this via email)

  11. How wonderful! About the additions, I mean. Though the photos will be fun, too!

  12. Two more oh my! That is great news!

    I posted my pictures today! Can’t wait to see them all on Friday! I took tons of pictures too, but tried to cut it down. It wasn’t easy!
