Profile Profile Awesomeness!

So, I've decided...our profile is kind of lame, and a lot boring.

Hello!? We are not lame or boring. And, since I get kinda "funny" and find myself especially hilarious at 2:00 in the morning....well, I decided to work on our profile.

My vision is to make a professional-looking brochure, introducing our wonderfully-quirky family. Here's what I've got so far. This would be the front cover:

Hoping To Adopt

Adoption Makes Our Family Part of Yours

Then, the first page of the "brochure" would go as follows...

Introducing: Paul

(I could get in a LOT of trouble for posting this picture...but it's just so funny!!)

Also known as: Big Daddy, The Man of the House, and Momma’s Sweet Hunk of Love….The King of this castle

Paul is the sports broadcaster in the family. He is “broadcasting” a variety of sports from the radio, the T.V., the internet, the newspaper, as well as his iPhone at nearly any given hour of the day. Who knew there were so many sports, and so many games/tournaments/bowl games?

We’d also like to recognize his efforts as a butcher…he brings home some mighty fine “bacon”!

He is also the family "collector". Now I'm not talkin' cards...I'm talkin' cars and not in the "Matchbox" variety.

You’ve never met a comedian like him. He’s got a gift for laughter. And if it’s true what they say: ‘laughter is the best medicine’, well that makes him the family doctor too.

No other “Big Daddy” could fill his shoes…ask his girls.

Genie (from Aladdin) would tell you: “You ain’t never had-a friend like [Paul]”. Paul cares more and has more love for people than anyone knows.

Paul is “The Rock”…the very foundation of our happy home. And, he’s hot.

Introducing: Jeanette

(In my Redneck glory...)

Also known as: The Queen to her King, The Taxi Driver, The Chef

Jeanette is the “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” kind of mom…oh, but she does the ‘kitchen sink’ too.

Move over Julia, Martha, and Rachel Ray…You’ve got nothing on this kitchen vixen!

She "whips" up cookies, brownies, and decorates cakes and can dish up a meal worthy of finger-licken.

Her girls sit on the counter making dinners and goodies, her sou-chef’s in training

She "stirs" up things to see and do, adding "spice" to each day whether sunshine or raining

Cousin play-dates and camping are thrown in the "mix"

Up her sleeves are "batches" of good tricks

One thing she’s unable to do is to get a "bun" in her "oven" and have it bake too

Hoping you’ll please share your "recipe" and add another "bun" to our crew.

And, in case you were wondering...she’s pretty sure the song “Redneck Woman” by Gretchen Wilson was written about her.

Introducing: Marquessa

(Check out the shoes on my little fashionista!)

Also known as: Mar-quesadilla, usually “Dia”, Bug…or bug-a-licious, The Princess

Marquessa is the family’s “party animal”. She thinks life is a party thrown just for her. If it weren’t necessary to sleep, she wouldn’t.

She’s a stellar kindergarten student. Reading on her own, writing words and numbers…watch out Harvard!

She’s a born romantic. (Loves watching the “kissing parts” on movies)

She thinks “Captain Jack Sparrow” is hot.

Marquessa’s theme song would be: Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus.

Although, I’m thinking ABBA (the band) would serenade her with the song: ‘Dancing Queen’. Seriously, you should see the girls moves…

Her dream job: a hairstylist, a teacher, or a game tester for Milton Bradley or Hasbro. She loves to play card/board games, play “class” and style her doll’s hair, her sister’s hair…mom’s hair…

Introducing: Courtney

(Those are grapes in her cheeks!)

Also known as: Jane (her middle name), Janey, Janer, and Angel, Princess Sister

Courtney is the family cheerleader. She is very good at recognizing and praising everyone's work and efforts.

Courtney is an amazing swimmer, and has often been called lil’ mermaid or lil’ fish. We keep looking for the gills, fins and scales...if we don’t find any she could be the family’s first “Olympian”! If we do…uh, what do we do!?

Theme song: I wonder if she’d choose something from Little Mermaid or Finding Nemo? “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…”

Perhaps we might have a future American Idol on our hands. She’s got serious skills with her pipes! Courtney might just be the Taylor Swift of her generation. (She’s a T.S. fan)

Courtney’s dream job: a movie critic, an author or an editor. She loves her some good media; always asking if she can “watch-a-show”, or you might find her nose buried in some book. No one can stop a smile when hearing her giggle at something she finds funny.

This preschooler has the stubborn determination, independence, energy, attitude and “smarts” to go after what she wants. We know she’ll get it too.
