Work, Work, Work, VACATION!

 Look at those smiling faces with Mama and Daddy's undivided attention! Boy, oh boy! There has been a lot going on lately! The adoption is coming along nicely! We're trying our best to finish up the last of our paper run and getting close to done. Up days, down days, but all around BUSY days!  The Lord blessed us with the wonderful opportunity to go on a vacation to the coast! We camped for a whole week right by the beach! It was such a blessing! We were able to visit a lovely church in Geribaldi, Oregon. It was one of the highlights of the trip for me. It was such a great time worshiping with brothers and sisters in the next state over!

I am going to photo bomb you like crazy, so prepare yourself!

The beach was amazing! Everyone agreed that the most relaxing and all around fun times were spent right there on the beach just being together and soaking up the beauty!

We also had some fantastic days browsing shops, visiting Astoria, and seeing some really fun and beautiful sites!

Seaside Shops are so fun!

Everyone really loved the Air Museum and Cheese factory in Tillamook!

The Astoria Column was beautiful and a really fun time! We went over to the Maritime Museum after and it was just an all around lovely day! 

I praise the Lord for the opportunity to recharge and come together as a family with no distractions to worry about. What a blessing! 

And just because I can, I have to tell you all that Gussy turned TWO! Two, y'all! Thank you Jesus!

The Tannehill's are Bringing Them Home!

Most of you who read our blog know that we are adopting two precious babes from Eastern Europe but I wanted to officially invite you to come on over and follow our journey to bring home our sweet new babes! At the top you will see the link to "We're Coming Number Six", as well as our Family Sponsorship Page in the right hand margin. I have copied a recent post for you to preview! Hope to see you over there! 


We're Coming Number Six... and SEVEN!

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? 
~1 John 3:17~
Yes! You read right! SEVEN! The Lord has decided to not only bless us with one precious child but TWO! And we can share who! Oh yeah!  I know, I know, it's been a while! All you adoptin' folks know that the Dossier packets make your head spin! Those that aren't adopting; It makes your head spin! Ha! 
Are you ready for introductions? Of course you are!
Meet my sweet baby girl, "Beatrice"!
Oh sweet baby girl, how I long to hold you! We're getting so close and working so hard to come and get you! My sweet precious girl will be two in October. She was born without a nose or eyes, but with this hand given to her, she shines with such beauty! Look at that precious face! Don't you just want to squeeze her!? Oh man! Those cheeks are beggin' for a smooch!
Next comes my newest little man! Oh boy, get ready for some cute! This boys eye lashes and big sweet eyes will make you jealous that he's coming home to us :-D
Meet our sweet boy, "Sawyer"!  
Oh sweet boy! How blessed we are to be adding you to our quest to grow our family! Sweet boy will be 3 in January. Hopefully he will be spending it at home with his family! "Sawyer" has compensated hydrocephalus, fused fingers, and a VERY kissable face! We're coming sweet boy, we're coming!

So, there you have it folks. We're working daily to bring home sweet number six and sweet number seven! Your prayers are coveted! 

Keep watching for fundraisers and auctions! We have some really neat items for our give aways! They are coming up soon! We still need quite a bit of funding, I am working on an itemized list. Christmas is coming up and I hope you will look to adoption fundraisers for your shopping! We plan to do all, or at least most, of our Christmas shopping through adoption fundraisers. What better way to celebrate the birth of our Savior than to give with your shopping instead of falling into the hustle and bustle of it all! If you have ideas for something you would like to see in a fundraiser or auction send me a message! You can come and "like" our Facebook fundraiser page to stay up to date on our latest items! 

I praise the Lord for His mercies and gifts! What a beautiful thing to be bringing home two precious babes! Thank you Jesus!
