Where do I start? Oh, I know
"It's a GIRL"!!!!!!!!!!
We got the phone call today that we have been waiting for.
I had just got home from running a few errands and i heard the house phone ringing so i ran inside and grabbed the phone and told my cousin who i was talking too on my cell that i needed to go so i could answer the other phone, so i grabbed the phone and guess who it was?
Holt International!
So, I say "Hello" and the Lady on the other end said Hi, Konnie this is _______ from
Holt, We talked for a few seconds and then she said the One of the most Exciting things I have heard, she said "We would like to Welcome You, Isaac and your Boys to the China Program, YOU'VE BEEN ACCEPTED"!!!
I screamed, she laughed & we talked.
She told me to go check my e-mail because they had sent us our dossier.
After talking for awhile, silly woman asked me if I had any questions and I asked her how much time she had. lol!
I had an Amazing feeling when I heard those words "You've been accepted"
Wow! It still gives me chills to think about it.
It felt like going to the doctor and hearing him tell us that we were pregnant!
When I got off of the phone i ran outside and told Isaac & the boys that we were accepted and after alot of laughing and talking{ok not so much talking just alot of laughing} i called My Mom and told her "It looks like You and Daddy are going to have a new granddaughter." and then I called my sister and then I called Jennifer.
This is like the best Christmas present ever!!!
I am now going to be the mother of 5!
{1 in Heaven, 3 in My Arms & 1 in China}
UPDATE: We are going through the Child of PromiseProgram {minor/correctable needs}. From the date of application until travel is 12 - 18 months but they say it can go faster
because there are not very many families that will accept little girls with some of the needs that we are open to.

Rub a Dub Dub Easton's in the tub!

We came home the other night and i went straight to turn bath water on and of course my little shadow followed me { i love my little shadow, so i don't mind that he follows me EVERYWHERE!} anyway Easton was playing with Handy Manny on the floor in the bathroom, and i turned around at the vanity to pull my hair up and out of the corner of my eye i saw Easton's little head going over the side of the tub, I turned around and this is what I saw...

{I did not leave Easton in the bathroom by himself, I called to Isaac to get my camera.
I just couldn't pass up the oppurtunity to {blackmail} take a few cute photos of my baby boy!}

The Dooley's "Christmas 2009"

Update- Yes! I am sitting on Santa's Lap, Easton was not at all thrilled with the big hairy man so they told me to get in the picture with them and then they called Isaac to get in too and the next thing i knew Santa was like "Hey,you just have seat here on Santa's lap and hold the baby" I told Isaac afterwards that i felt just a little violated. LOL! When we got the pic Isaac said Ugh! Where was Santa's hand? I told him I was afraid to think about it. LOL!
