About Me

My photo
My husband and I, the Dynamic Duo, have been married since 2003. We've weathered the storm of chronic disease (diagnosis 2006), infertility (diagnosis 2007), turning 30 (2006/2007 respectively) a first adoption (2009) of a tender hearted, compassionate Ukrainian BIG boy (born 2006), who has told us he'd like a baby sister, baby brother, big brother, and REALLY big sister. We recently completed our second Ukrainian adoption journey, which brought us a daughter (born 2005). We'll see what else God brings our way!

Fun Times in tha Hood

This is what happens when Papa washes your hair...

Tongue tatoo!!

Amelia lost her first tooth.  The tooth fairy still hasn't come, though.  Silly tooth fairy!

Dave and I had a date night at a wedding.  From 3pm-10pm we were child free!  It was fun...I even got my dance on :)

Grandma Karl came in town just in time for Eli's field trip to a pumpkin/farm/cider park.  We went on a hay ride and walked through a "storybook" path.  

Eli and his teacher.  He LOVES his teacher!

Playing in the dirt...what else is there to do at a farm?!

They fed the ducks...

And heard a presentation about farm animals.  We even made butter from milk that was milked right in front of us...

We didn't want Amelia to feel left out so we went to a cider mill on Saturday.  We fed some goats (and a llama!).

and stood in line for, like, EVER for some cider and donuts.

But they were TOTALLY worth it.

And really messy, which was fun.

Amelia LOVES her Grandma Karl and misses her already.  Thanks for coming, Grandma Karl.  We love you and can't wait to see you again :)

In other news, we're having a hard time with getting Amelia's US passport.  We have all the paperwork done, but we can't find a time/place that works for all 3 of us.  Saturdays would be great, but with the cutbacks they don't do many Saturday appointments anymore.  Dave works a typical 9-5 job, and Amelia's in school from 9-4.  But most places only do passport services during the week from 10-3.  See our problem?!  I found one place that does by appointment only...I just need to call to find out when those appointments are.  Sigh.  We need it sooner than later so we can go to Buffalo to see family.  Stay tuned to see what new adventure awaits!

Just curious. Why do you need a passport to go to Buffalo? My son's been here two and a half years, and I've never bothered (beyond getting the form)about getting him a new passport. I figured he doesn't need one unless we travel out of the country or until he starts drivers training Eek! or gets a job. Is there something I don't know...about getting a passport, I mean?

We drive through Canada because it's much faster. 4.5-5 hours vs taking the route around the river, which is about an 8 hour drive. Once we get a US Passport, we can apply for Nexus for her, which speeds up our travels during the busy season :) So, no, your son doesn't need a passport. You aren't missing anything...and I think you can get one of those super duper driver's licenses which would allow you to travel by car to both Mexico and Canada without a Passport.

The kids look awesome and everyone looks happy. What a blessing! Glad to hear you two were able to get your groove thing on and enjoy some alone time together at the wedding.
