Welcome to the Carter blog. There once were 5 of us, then we grew to 11, then 14 for a short period and now are about to be 12. Some may say we are actually ONE EGG SHORT OF A DOZEN for choosing to have a large family. We hurt and cry and sometimes yell but then again we laugh, forgive, and have fun much more! We call ourselves FAMILY. Join us on the adventures we seem to fall into on our adoption journeys and family life. You never know what you will find!

Eli's 9th Birthday - March 6-14
In late Feb., Early March, we celebrate 3 birthdays in 10 days!
We celebrated Eli's 9th Birthday with a family Dinner but then had a party for him on the 14th. Even though it rained a lot, several did come and they had a great time. Since we couldn't roast weiners and marshmallows outside in the firepit, Duane had already grilled the weiners and we roasted the marshmallows in the fireplace. They then watched the Scooby Doo- Campfire movie. It was actually the easiest party I have ever had.
Sodas and ice cream cake are special for birthdays Eli loves Legos Party Stuff ready to go! Allenni and Eli roasting marshmallows in the fireplace Getting cards and presents Graham always in movement Eli and his friend Matt The movie on the big screen ceiling
