Snow Day

As a teacher usually I relish snow days.  In fact, if we go a winter without at least 2, I feel cheated!  Today, however, I had plans that did not involve my children being home!  I wanted to get all the Christmas gifts out, take inventory, and wrap.  You can't do that with the kids home.  So, I had to write down what I've bought(impulsively and randomly over the last few days) from memory and then I went to the mall to fill in the holes.  I'm quite certain I did not remember all I've bought and now will have to return or repurchase something.  Oh well, the best laid plans.  I want to have Christmas all set by tomorrow so the end of the week can be focused on packing, laundry, and other household duties.  Fun.  This is the kind of invigorating post that makes people want to come back to this blog...  I did get one of those super cute Sassy brand photo books for babies.  I put family pictures in there and plan on leaving it at the orphanage.  Any adoption buddies out there that did this?  Did the caregivers let the children keep it? 


  1. Yes, we left a soft photo album with Ava, and we even got it back. To this day, she still loves to look at it.

  2. We also did the Sassy photo book and it was one of our little guys favorite things!!! We felt so much with our goodbye knowing that we could leave it with him and they will show him pictures.

    Great purchase!

    Wishing you all the best with your travels! Remember to just breathe and cherish the moments!!!!!
