So today, Blake took us to the zoo. It's amazing to me how much more fun the zoo becomes to a mommy when she has her honey there! I tell you what, it was a blast. I usually love the zoo just because we are outside not fighting over toys and such. But today was different and special and I am sure it's because it followed a hectic daddy-less 10 weeks.
So, I hope you enjoy the pictures. We sure are loving having Blake home more! What a blessing he is to all of us and honestly, it's a blessing to have to "give him up" for 10 weeks because it makes every moment with him that much sweeter.
Nothing too thrilling here, just Sadie in an adorable outfit! She loved checking out the waterfall.
This one cracks me up because I was so excited to get all 3 of them in a picture that I didn't even notice the paci in Sadie's neck until 5 pictures were taken!
The men in my life! They were so amazed at the train ride. We have never taken the train at the zoo, so it was such a wonderful treat!

So, that's what I am feeling right now....
OH MY GOODNESS!
My heart is on fire for adoption.
I know, you could have never guessed. I am sure most of you tire of hearing me talk about it!
So, if that's you...take a quick look at my adorable kids and then tune out now! Maybe most of you do that anyway...but I am giving you permission now!
We've been talking for over a month now about trying to change the Oklahoma law about relinquishment. In doing this, we've realized how hard this really is going to be for a couple of stay-at-home moms who hardly get out!
But, we still have great hope and feel like we are gaining momentum.
If you haven't checked out our super cool blog please do so by clicking on the cute button on the right. If you become a follower we can track how many people are supporting this. That way we know if this might actually get enough attention to make it to a vote.
This last week has really brought me some more hope and direction. An adoption buddy of mine does fundraising for St. Jude and because of that has some fantastic contacts and asked us if we would like her to contact her peeps to see if we could get some TV interviews and radio interviews to spotlight our cause. How cool is that?
Please pray for these things and that God will open hearts and minds to adoption through this!Here's another cool thing that happened! If you know me, you know that I don't read the paper or listen to the news. I rely entirely too much on my sweet in-laws to let me know if there's a tornado headed our way!
And yet again, my MIL called me yesterday excited about something in the newspaper. Get this guys...there is a state legislative adoption task force that is looking to add an adoptive parent and a birth parent to their task force! I am so excited and you better bet that I emailed these guys with my info.
I know most of you are gasping in fear because you know I know nothing of laws and politics. But, I know that my God is bigger than that and He will guide me through this should they ask me to help out. I also know that I don't have to be ready and able to serve on this task force...God will use my willing heart if it's His plan to do such.
So, please pray for this task force. They are looking to extend the life of the task force until the end of next year. This would be great because with our concerns about the current law, we are going to need more time to gain support. I fully realize there are TONS of adoptive parents in this area that are much more capable of doing this than I. But I also know that this has been on my heart and I need to at least offer my help and support to these politicians that are trying to protect and improve OK adoption.
**I realize these pictures are random pictures, but I just can't post without giving you something precious to look at! I know you're not really here to listen to my ramblings anyway!**

The newest big brother! I love you Sutton Grant! Above are some of the cousins waiting for Luke!
Luke William Grunewald is perfect and beautiful and Laura is doing wonderful as well!
I think he misses his Aunt Molly already! Oh my heart hurts to leave my nieces and nephews today!
Well, my little boys are loving basketball since it's been the season. They love playing any chance they get. Their favorite players are the Griffin brothers, Taylor and Blake.
So this is a video of them playing basketball a few weeks ago. If you listen close you'll hear Cooper say that he's Blake Griffin and that Owen is Taylor Griffin.
It's pretty stinking cute!
Not that she won't talk to us too, but there something about a wall that gets her going loud!
Hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
Notice her wobbles???
Sorry you can't see her face well!

These pictures have nothing to do with this post but they are only a couple of the very few that I have of the boys lately! It seems that I can't get pics of them unless they are still in front of the TV! I was cuddling with Sadie and feeding her and they wanted to cuddle next to her. They actually asked me to move!

We were too.
