Here is Sonny's 16th birthday party!  He had most of his friends over and my fabulous friend, Melania, made is cake!  I can not believe he is so old, it just seems like yesterday he was a baby in my arms.

I probably should have put this post before the other one since it is out of order chronologically but oh well.
This was March 29, 2012 the day our daughter Eliana Juanita Collins came into our family.  Obviously the man on the right is the judge, but the woman on the left was her case worker.
When we set out on our adoption journey we had no idea how long it would take and what the outcome would be, but we are so glad we did!

Prom 2012

This is Sonny with is date Erin.  This was Sonny's first date!  We bought the tux jacket at DI in Utah and the pants were given to him.  We rented the shirt and tie.  He had a great time that night.  
Eliana and Sonny had their dates over for dinner before the dance.  I made steak and oven roasted garlic rosemary potatoes.

Here is Eliana and her date Michael.  We found her purple dress at DI in Utah as well.  I just love finding deals!!

She got her hair done at the local beauty school- it took 3 hours!  But it was so beautiful!  She had a  great time as well. This picture shows the back.

I know not many people read my blog since I never update it, but maybe with me being on bed rest it will be a good time to try.  We are expecting our 5th child April 29th and are hoping for a healthy baby.

Family Pictures

We FINALLY have gotten our family pictures taken.  (the last time was 8-9 years ago).  I entered a contest to get half off a session with Lookhart Photography through A Thrifty Mom.  I WON!!  

My fabulous friend helped me pick out clothes for all of us, did Julianna's hair, did my make-up,- and even ironed the boys' shirts.  She rocks!!  Love you Tami!  

So the following are the long awaited pictures.  Susan did such a great job!
