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!

My sister in law and two nephews came in town for Thanksgiving.  We were SO happy they were able to come!  The kids tried as hard as they could to stay up for them...but they got in about 30mins too late.  Eli was a grump and Amelia was passed out on the couch, so we put them to bed around 10pm.  Aunt Wendy got in about 10:30pm!  When the kids woke up they could barely contain themselves :)

I think the TV was on for this picture...which explains Eli's grumpy face.

We ate turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, gravy, green bean casserole, and rolls.  Mmmm...it was delicious!  And on Saturday we had to go cut down our tree.  This was my nephews first tree cutting experience (I think!).  It took us a while to find a full tree that was small enough to fit in our house.  And we succeeded.  We picked out a gorgeous tree and put it up in our house.  

The following weekend Dave took the kids to ACO hardware store and found these great stuffed animal digital picture animals.  We put some pictures on them and they sleep with them.  Amelia has a dog, and Eli has a monkey.  

And we started the Christmas season with a gingerbread train.  Messy, but fun!
