J - the man!

J won second place in a county-wide art contest. The theme the kids were supposed to illustrate was "Bee Amazing". The artwork would be used to decorate the adult spelling bee in February. He won a $75 savings bond. We were so proud of him! There were several winners from his school, too.

Fun Playdate!

The first photo is of Sarah in a sweet dress that our friend Julie got her. The rest of the photos are of a playdate with her friend who was adopted at the same time, same place, same travel group. Rarely do you know the folks you travel with. We were blessed to know two families before we ever left. The three of us live close so we hope our girls will be forever friends. We hope to keep in touch with the other fabulous families with whom we traveled too.

First snow

Sarah discovered her first snow Monday morning. I took her out on the patio and she held out her hand to catch the snowflakes. I wonder if she's ever seen snow before.

She loves to find Daddy's hat and wear it.

Fashion plate or female Linus?

Sarah has been given so many cute outfits! Some are so cute you have to take a photo of not only the front but also the back! Accessories, such as a purse, are also a girl's best friend.

She reminds me of Linus. She has become enamored with a particular blanket and likes to carry it around. It's a must to have it at bed and nap time.

We started Musikgarten classes Monday. She enjoyed it. Her little personality is just shining.

Office Tour

Let me take you on a tour of S's office. Notice in the photo that he indicates the boundaries of his office. If you do not have an appointment, you cannot come in. Anyone remember Les Nessman from WKRP in Cincinnati?

Family photo - finally!

Someone once told me that having two kids is a lot more than one plus one. They were right. It takes so much longer to get average tasks completed. So finally, we've got a family Christmas photo to post along with "Santa Baby".
