Happy tears...

Our darling little niece Ceciley (Adam's sister Angie's little girl) had a very special day today...her Dad Trent adopted her. I was really so great to be in the court room and see this little family come together. Angie and Trent got married when Ceciley was 1 and so he has raised her and loved her like his own. Her father NEVER was around but decided he didn't want Trent adopting her so they had to go to court...but he never showed up to any of the court dates. So, after a long legal struggle it was made official today. Trent even bought her a very special corsage, and she was very proud. I thought this was very cute, every year on this day he is going to take her out on a date, just the two of them.
When I was taking photos of Ceciley today tears started rolling down her cheeks, and when I asked her if she was o.k. she told me, "they are happy tears Auntie". I almost lost it, it was just such a great day and such a happy ending for their family! This is Ceciley with Adam and I, Shes quite the little doll.

on another note, things are coming together at the house!!! Finally i feel like when Adam say 2 more weeks this time he might actually mean it.
