Daddy’s restaurant is now open! It is beautiful and the food is amazing! We are so proud of Daddy and Tib-A-Dor’s Station!
The restaurant is named after our children. We adopted our daughter and son from Hungary at the beginning of this year. The butterfly on the sign is for our sweet daughter Makayla Alice who died shortly after birth. This restaurant is Daddy’s dream and we have all worked hard to help Daddy start this new adventure.
The kids are doing great in school! Dorina and Tibi continue to make A’s and B’s. Tibi is now reading every thing, and I mean every thing that has words on it! We go down the road and he reads the signs. We go to the store, and he reads the labels. He reads what I write and he reads any book that he can. He sits in his soccer chair and reads away. We are so proud! Dorina reads but her favorite thing to do is to teach – just like her Mommy used to do when she was a girl. Dorina teaches her dolls, her stuffed animals, and her brother as often as he will let her. She would teach our cats if they would sit still long enough! She reads to her class and we get the impression she talks to them just like her teacher talks to her! It is so cute! Apparently Dorina’s teacher screams in her head! We are so proud of her.
Thanksgiving was a wonderful day for us! Daddy was busy at the restaurant most of the week so Mommy took over some of the cooking. With alot of prayer, God’s divine intervention, and the kids help – Mommy made some things for Thanksgiving and no one was hurt! 🙂 The kids and I made pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, and sweet potatoes. It came out very good actually and we had a blast making it together! This is the stuff memories are made of!
Grandma came over for lunch too.
We watched Charlie Brown’s Thanksgivings free lunch as a family and then we all took a nap! It was so nice to spend time together. I read several books to the kids during the week about Thanksgiving. We talked about how a pilgrim is someone who travels a long distance for a better life and the kids thought that was so neat because they were pilgrims too! We made lists of things we were thankful for and the kids had fun making Thanksgiving name tags for the table. The kids also enjoyed making special things for Mommy and Daddy at school. We have so much to be thankful for and we spent time thanking God all day!
This has been such a wonderful year full of making dreams come true for all of us! Daddy and Mommy are so blessed by Dorina and Tibi. Our lives have been forever changed and we are blessed beyond words. Every day is a joy with Dorina and Tibi! They are so sweet and full of love and joy! They have taught us so much! Thank you Father God for designing us to be a family from the beginning of time!
